Safe cutting with new compact bandsaw

A new compact version of the popular Astech SRA Bandsaw is now available in the UK and Ireland from Interfood Technology.

The launch of the bandsaw follows market research which highlighted demand for a machine with a smaller footprint. Like its bigger brother, the SRA Compact offers automatic cutting of both frozen and fresh bone-in or boneless produce. Flexible programming offers a range of variables with the capacity to store up to 50 cutting recipes for meat, fish and other products. With its completely enclosed cutting area, the SRA Compact ensures optimum safety in a machine which measures just 2110 x 1295 x 2000mm.

Richard Nethercot is Group Divisional Manager, Low Risk, Butchery Division, at Interfood. He comments – “for some food processors, optimising space has always been a challenge but with the need for social distancing, it has become a consideration for even more. Consequently, finding ways in which automated processes can be performed by machines with a smaller footprint has taken on greater significance. This new compact SRA offers the performance often associated with much larger machines, with impressive statistics regarding production per operator.”

High quality cuts to a precise thickness are generated through adjustable speed control, with safe and ease of operation ensured through a user-friendly interface.
