Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0713753A2] A high speed slicing machine (50) feeds one, two, or more food loaves (91) along parallel loaf paths into a slicing station (66) for slicing by one cyclically driven knife blade; the slices are stacked or shingled in groups (92,93) on a receiving conveyor (64) located below the slicing station (66). Independent loaf feed drives are provided; slices cut from one loaf may be thicker than slices from the other. The machine may combine manual and automated food loaf loading mechanisms that share a central barrier used only during loading. The automated loaf loading mechanism (75) has a sweep to push loaves onto the loaf paths. There are grippers each loaf path; each has a loaf feed drive that impels the gripper toward the slicing station and then moves it back to a home position. Each loaf feed drive also includes two "short" conveyors. <IMAGE>
