Vegetable Dicing Machine 3DD

The vegetable dicing machine 3DD is perfectly suited for cutting both vegetables and fruits into cubes, slices and julienne strips. The three-dimensional cutting system – consisting of a slicing knife, a circle knife set and a crosscut knife set – cuts the products with rotating knives. Thereby even the most delicate products (e.g. onion and paprika) are cut perfectly, even in the smallest cutting sizes. This vegetable dicer goes perfectly together with the HCB-400-TS conveyor belt and the VWM-2500 / VWM-3600 vegetable washing machine.

Vegetable dicing machine 3DD

The vegetable dicer machine 3DD is suitable for cutting both vegetables and fruits into cubes, slices and julienne strips. Vegetables will be thrown into the input funnel and are guided to the knives by means of a rotating drum. The three-dimensional cutting system—consisting of a disc knife, a round circle knife and a round chopper—cuts the products while the knives are rotating. Thereby, even the most delicate products are cut perfectly and the loss of product juices is minimal. In short, the 3DD is easy to operate, has an exceptional beautiful and high quality cut, a very solid construction and a perfectly hygienic finish. This dicing machine can also be perfectly integrated into a processing line for cutting, washing and drying vegetables.

Yes, it is possible to combine knife rollers of different sizes with the 3DD dicing machine.
While the 3DD is indeed capable of slicing, its primary design focuses on three-dimensional cutting (cubes), whereas the BCM-1650 is specifically designed for one- or two-dimensional cutting (such as slices or grating). These two machines complement each other well in terms of cutting options. The BCM-1650 offers the advantage of precise product positioning relative to the knife, ensuring excellent slicing results for a wide range of products. On the other hand, the 3DD lacks the ability to determine the product's position relative to the knife, limiting its effectiveness in slicing a variety of products. It is worth noting that the 3DD can efficiently slice round, homogenous root vegetables like potatoes and beetroots. However, if your primary requirement is one-dimensional slicing tasks for a variety of products, the BCM-1650 is the preferred choice.

The 3DD is a three-dimensional cutting machine that processes products in three stages:

  • 1st stage: Slicing is accomplished using the slicing knife blade, which comes as standard equipment on the 3DD. You can manually adjust the cutting size of the slicing knife to your desired thickness.
  • 2nd stage: In this phase, slices are transformed into strips. To achieve strip cutting, you'll require a circle knife roller with a fixed cutting size, available in cutting sizes ranging from 2.5 mm to 20 mm. Additionally, you'll need a comb that matches the size of the circle knife roller. Even if you're cutting without a circle knife roller, such as French fries, it's essential to equip the machine with a comb.
  • 3rd stage: During this stage, strips are further processed into cubes. To accomplish this, you'll need a cross-cut knife roller with a fixed cutting size, available in cutting sizes ranging from 3 mm to 20 mm.
The 3DD machine is already being used by clients for a wide variety of non-traditional products, so there might already be a possibility that we have experience with the product you have in mind. Our team of experts is more than willing to assess the potential for cutting your specific product. To facilitate this, you have a few options. You are welcome to visit our demonstration facility for in-person testing. Alternatively, you can ship us the product, and we will perform the testing while arranging a video call with you to witness the process. If it's more convenient for you, we can also provide a recorded video demonstration of the trial.

The 3DD dicing machine is known for its very high uniformity and excellent cutting quality. However, it's important to note that the uniformity rate depends on the inherent characteristics of the product and the selected cutting size. The machine excels in achieving uniformity but is subject to the limitations of the product's shape and size. Uniformity levels depend on the following factors:

  1. Cutting size: Larger cutting sizes may result in variations in the final cuts. For instance, a 10x10x10 mm cut may exhibit more noticeable variations compared to a 5x5x5 mm cut.
  2. Product size: Generally, larger products tend to maintain higher levels of uniformity.
  3. Product shape: Products with irregular shapes or hollow interiors may exhibit more pronounced variations compared to uniformly round products.

To further enhance uniformity levels, we provide solutions for handling products with dimensions smaller than the set cutting size. Our washing machines are equipped with a perforated vibrating sieve, designed to filter out products based on the size of the sieve's perforations. Moreover, our optional rotating filter enables you to gather the filtered product, providing versatility for alternative uses.
