Cauliflower, broccoli and romanesco floretting machine
A heavy duty, compact and continously running floretting machine.
The Floreto is an innovative machine which efficiently de-cores broccoli, cauliflower and romanesco. It features a continuously running intake belt combined with a motional knife construction capable of higher capacity, more precision while ensuring increased lifespan of the knives. Due to implementation of innovative solutions the machine is capable of seamlessly switching between floretting various vegetables by simply pushing of a button.
The product is manually fed into the machine with the core pointing upwards; after which it is de-cored applying vegetable specific procedures. The florets and waste material leave the machine separately ensuring the best possible end product.Procedure:
By cauliflower the standard unit cuts in two steps:
1. A vertical knife cutting the outer florets
2. An additional knife cutting the florets on the top of the head
When the machine is set up for broccoli it applies only the second step.Automatic knife selection
The automatic knife diameter selection for cauliflower and romanesco applies sensor technology which determines the size of the heads. This allows more homogenously sized florets when size of cauliflower heads vary. It is optionally set up with dividing knives to make smaller florets.
Adding the automatic knife diameter selection makes the Floreto capable of correctly floretting varying crop sizes. With this technology the Floreto automatically selects the optimum knife diameter to cut the outer florets, increasing the yield and quality of the florets.
