(Green) Bean cutting machine
Manually processing green beans is time consuming and soul killing work that is relatively expensive. That is why we at GEGE Machinebouw have made a cutting machine that saves the consumer this labour.
The advantages of the cutting machine:
- Price advantage
- Fresh green beans are kitchen ready
- Quick and easy
- Large capacity
- Several cutting options
- No preparatory work for the consumer
The beans are trimmed at both ends and then sliced lengthwise. The cutting has a capacity of 300 kilos per hour.
We can offer a range of new processing methods for green beans for the fresh market. We build equipment for:
Kitchen ready green beans
We have managed to develop a machine that is able to process green beans to a kitchen-ready end-product in one step.
We became aware that there is a demand from the market to know whether it was possible to develop a machine that is able to grade a green bean to any desired lengths. Our answer was YES. GEGE built a compact machine, that is able to grade any desired lengths, and is able to extract any beans from the grading process that are too warped.
Placing in the crate
At the request of supermarkets, we have developed a machine that is able to correctly line-up green beans for the fresh market.
The advantages are a nicer presentation, more product in the same crate and more ease for the consumer. We take care of the whole processing line from the input bunker up to the palletising.
Cutting ‘long products’
GEGE Machinebouw in Uden did not develop the machine to cut green beans only. Other ‘long products’ such as carrots and stringbeans can also be cut by this machine. The unique thing about this machine is that it uses gravity to position the product. This works trouble-free as opposed to systems that use water or compressed air. This is reflected most clearly in the reliability with which this machine operates, according to developer Hans van Asseldonk of GEGE Machnebouw.
