Wheels of parmesan cheese are not small, which means it takes a lot of power to slice the wheels into wedges for retail and wholesale distribution. For centuries these wheels have been cut and portioned by hand with specialized cheese tools, but there is another way! The FoodTools CS-3SA Parmesan cutting machine is an industrial slicer with the power and precision to efficiently cut hard cheeses such as parmesan. The photo below of a wheel of parmesan sliced into blocks is from a test demonstration on the CS-3SA. The machine uses a powerful pneumatic system to slice through products using one stainless steel cutting blade. The pressure of the thin blade cutting through the cheese gives a precise cut for each portion.
