Adapted to a wide variety of products and textures, CNC waterjet cutting technology brings to the food industry its great flexibility of use, while respecting the strict standards of the sector.
With its range of industrial equipment dedicated to food processing applications, MÉCANUMÉRIC has designed robust CNC machines. The technologies used in these machines are based on precision mechanics. Each of them offers high production performance over time.
Pure waterjet cutting, for a multitude of applications and food products
From portioning to slicing and slicing to cutting shapes and patterns, waterjet technology is suitable for both fresh and frozen products. It can be carried out quickly without any contact with the product, without cutting effort or deformation. The main advantage of the MÉCANUMÉRIC range of equipment is that there is no blade to avoid any contamination. Cutting is carried out with pure water at a pressure of more than 3000 bar, thus eliminating any bacteriological risk thanks to the phenomenon of pascalisation of the water.
MÉCANUMÉRIC industrial waterjet tools: advantages and flexibility for a long time!
Assembled on the basis of a one-piece frame and a mechanically welded mobile gantry in stainless steel, the models in the MÉCANUMÉRIC waterjet range designed for the food industry can be equipped with a mobile table for loading and unloading in hidden time. Their robust design combined with the reliability of precision mechanics allow them to be used with great flexibility, whatever the product, fresh or frozen: cold meats, fruit and vegetables, cakes, aperitif cocktails, pastries, frozen products, etc.
Water jet cutting machines for the food industry
As a supplier of industrial equipment, MECANUMERIC has designed a CNC "MDA" machine dedicated to the waterjet cutting of numerous food products such as :
- Water jet cutting of charcuterie
The charcuterie industry is rich in a very wide range of different products. The density, texture and hardness are specific to each of them. There is also a wide variety of ways to cut the meat. The CNC waterjet cutting process is suitable for cutting sausage products acting like a slicer or portioning machine. It ensures the absence of contamination and spoilage for better preservation.
- Waterjet cutting of frozen cakes
CNC jet cutting machines are perfectly designed to cut all types of frozen cakes cleanly and precisely. The precision of CNC cutting allows for a multitude of shapes and sizes. This makes it possible to cut individual bites or to cut ice cream pieces for larger portions.
- Water jet cutting of fruit and vegetables
By nature, most fruit and vegetables crush when cut. The use of industrial water jet cutting equipment avoids any risk of crushing and deformation of fruit and vegetables during cutting. The cutting can be done in different shapes to create very visual dishes. As a portioning machine, it also facilitates packaging, the weight of which is measured.
- Water jet cutting of aperitif cocktails
The portioning of aperitif cocktails using industrial waterjet cutting equipment ensures a perfect result every time. The computer-assisted CNC machines program the cutting mode of the aperitif cocktails and then the water jet makes a clean and precise cut regardless of the size and shape of the portions.
- Water jet cutting of pastries
The cutting process takes place after the dough has been shaped for the production of Viennese pastries. The latter can be sticky or have a firm structure. Waterjet cutting allows a clean cut of each portion with an identical weight and shape. The CNC waterjet cutting machine memorises the patterns to be cut, allowing the user to reuse the same program as often as necessary.
A growing range to meet all production requirements
MÉCANUMÉRIC has developed 2 new ranges of pure water jet cutting equipment with numerous advantages to cover a multitude of needs for the different players in the food industry:
- A range of machines equipped with a 600 x 400 mm format table, with a closed cutting area and a small footprint, perfectly adapted to restricted production spaces and the production of small series.
- A range of machines with large tables allowing the simultaneous cutting of several sheets of products, equipped with an automatic loading and unloading area to ensure sustained production in large series.
