Deville Technologies Inc. has announced the addition of the USDA-accepted FAM Hymaks Dicer/Strip-Cutter to its line of premium-quality industrial food-cutting machines. Deville worked closely with its Belgian partner, FAM, to design a machine that would comply with the most stringent food safety regulations. Developed specifically for the cheese and meat industries, the Hymaks is a high-capacity, high-precision food-cutting machine that is also a pioneer in converting sanitation theory into practice.
“We’re very excited to bring the Hymaks to North America”, said David Penta, general manager of Deville Technologies. “Food safety is a major issue affecting all the players in the food processing industry. The Hymaks allows a company to comply with USDA standards, while benefiting from this machine’s leading edge, cost-efficient performance.”
The Hymaks is characterized by unique and uncompromising sanitary design features such as complete separation of the product contact and mechanical zones, self-draining surfaces in the product contact zone, no exposed bores, threads, or bolts in the product contact zone, and a minimum Ra 32 finish in the product contact zone.
The Hymaks was designed to handle a wide range of applications ranging from large blocks of soft, semi-hard or processed cheeses such as mozzarella, Monterey jack and provolone. Blocks can be square, rectangular or cylindrical. Cheese can be cut chilled or frozen.
