PreCutter VN

The PRECUTTER VN was developed for the flexible and efficient refining of confectionery raw materials such as nuts and wafers as well for thereprocessing of rework. Whether integrated into NETZSCH RUMBA® or SALSA® plants, into your existing line or as a stand-alone machine – the NETZSCH PRECUTTER VN is an optimal complement to your production.


Plant Design

The pre-ground paste of nuts or rework is directly transported to a process tank for further processing. For short distances between the PRECUTTER VN and tank, no additional pump is needed. The integrated PRECUTTER VN unit allows self-cleaning of the machine in circulation with flushing liquid. This leads to
easy product change and flexibility during production. The combination of the pre-cutting unit and a horizontal agitator bead mill for fine- grinding allows the production of premium products like nut creams or rework pastes. Reduced and closed machinery components, equipped with optimized grinding technology, lead to low processing temperatures (40°C to 50°C) and an improved flavor profile of your product.
