Vegetable Belt Cutting Machine BCM-2450
The vegetable belt cutter BCM-2450 is especially designed for small- and medium-sized vegetable processing companies. This machine is well suited for almost all kinds of vegetables, fruits, and salads and has a capacity of up to 1000 kg/h. The belt cutting machine BCM-2450 delivers a beautiful and qualitatively excellent cutting result because of the sophisticated concept of ‘rotating knife transition’ with very small SS rollers that guide the product to the knife, in combination with extremely sharp knives. Cutting sizes and other options can easily be adjusted on the touch screen of the machine. The BCM-2450 can also be seamlessly integrated into a vegetable processing line for cutting, washing, and drying vegetables.

Ease of Use
All programs and functions on the BCM-2450 can easily be controlled on the standard included color touch screen. This display can be adjusted to eleven different languages: Arabic, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Korean, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish. Cutting sizes are adjustable with one simple press on the touch screen. The cutting discs can easily be interchanged because of their convenient size and weight.
Hygienic Design / Easy to Clean
All doors can easily be opened, and all belts are easily removable. Because of the smoothly finished surface and the lack of ‘dirt angles,’ the machine can be cleaned quickly, thoroughly, and hygienically. The touchscreen also contains a cleaning program, which allows the belts to run with an open door and an open screen, making them easy to clean without removing them.
The machine is made entirely of sustainable stainless steel. All technical components are from renowned brands. All technical components are inside the machine, so they are perfectly protected against water. The touchscreen is IP-67 water-resistant.
The BCM-2450 has three water-resistant (IP-67) sensors, making it impossible for users to reach the knife disc while the machine is operating. Therefore, users cannot come into contact with the rotating knife disc. The three sensors are placed on the door of the cutting chamber, under the cutting chamber (a safety bar), and on the cover over the cutting belts. When the sensor is deactivated, the machine will stop immediately (brake motor). The touchscreen will graphically display which sensor was deactivated.

The BCM-2450 is already employed for a wide range of products beyond vegetables, fruits, and herbs, and our team of experts can evaluate the potential for cutting your specific product. If it proves feasible, you are welcome to visit our demonstration facility, where we can conduct the testing in person. Alternatively, you have the option to send us the product, and we will perform the testing while coordinating a video call with you. If preferred, we can also record a video demonstration for your convenience.
We understand that selecting the right knives and options can be a challenging task given the multitude of choices available. To assist you in making the best decision for your specific needs, we offer several resources:
When deciding between the BCM-1650 and BCM-2450, the primary consideration is the infeed belt length. The BCM-2450 features an 80 cm longer infeed belt, allowing space for up to 4 operators to load products onto the belt. In contrast, the BCM-1650 accommodates 2 operators. Your choice should align with how many operators you need to efficiently feed the belt.
- Product Preparation: Evaluate the level of product preparation required before placing items on the cutting belt. Products that need extensive preparation, such as stem removal or core extraction, may benefit from additional operators to ensure a smooth workflow.
- Hourly Capacity: Assess your desired hourly cutting capacity. If you aim to maximize the machine's full 1000 kg/h capacity, it's likely that you will require more operators to keep the belt supplied with products.
Ultimately, the choice between the BCM-1650 and BCM-2450 hinges on your workforce, product preparation requirements, and production goals. Evaluate these factors to determine which model best suits your vegetable processing needs.
