  • Single-lane (frozen) and two-lane (fresh) systems available
  • Quickly and easily adjust cut heights for a variety of bread products
  • Can cut in temperatures as low as 20-32 degrees F to handle fresh and frozen products (see model specifics below)
  • Disposable AccuBand® band blades provide optimal quality, consistency and yield while eliminating resharpening and simplifying clean-up
