Food press applications can employ numerous Thomson components and fully engineered solutions. The press mechanism can make use of a high-load rodded actuator with a friction break and feedback element. The stop block can be raised and lowered with the help of a linear actuator, and the slicer can employ a planetary gearbox and round-rail linear guides, all resistant to corrosion and caustic cleaning elements. Underneath, a wrap-spring clutch helps index the motor driving the conveyor belt.
Precision Linear Actuators
Precision linear actuators provide clean, compact, maintenance-free operation compared to hydraulic and pneumatic actuation. Converting to electric actuation can speed assembly and reduce overall costs. More on Precision Linear Actuators >
