Cutting Slicing

Subsequent to the inspection operation, potatoes typically enter a cutting/slicing operation, which consists of equipment designed to produce cut potato pieces of appropriate size and shape from the raw tubers. A variety of sizes and shapes of slabs and strips may be obtained from a raw tubers by use of a basic industrial-type rotary vegetable slicer. In some plants, unique water knives, which cut peeled tubers into strips for French fries while being carried by flowing water in pipes, are used. Specially designed equipment provides for proper orientation of tubers relative to cutter blades and results in the longest possible cut strips. Multiple cutter units are used to meet plant capacity requirements.
