Tomato & Onion Slicers

MCT Industrial Tomato and Onion Slicers

The MCT Tomato & Onion Slicers have been specifically designed and engineered to produce precision cut tomato and onion slices. The machines are constructed of sani-safe stainless steel that are easy to load, reducing labor costs. Perfect for commercial and industrial tomato slicer operations.

The MCT Tomato & Onion Slicers :

  • Produces uniform, clean cut tomato or onion slices to a standard thickness
  • Removes and collects the unwanted end pieces of the produce
  • Retains the integrity of the slices by gently placing them into the tray
  • Avoid hand sorting the tomato and onion slices which reduce the risk of damage and contamination
  • The MCT 25 and 50 sanitizes each of the cutting blades between each slicing cycle, significantly reducing the risk of cross-contamination – automatic spraying system
  • Reduces the labor handling costs of slicing the tomatoes and onions significantly
  • Delivers in excess of 70% yield of finished product consistently

The Company offers 5 different industrial food slicer models depending on the needs of the customers:

  • Single row ¼ steam trays: MCT 5, MCT 25 Tomato and Onion Slicer, and the MCT 25 Double Row slicer
  • Three row ½ steam trays: MCT 10 and MCT 50 Tomato Slicer

MCT 5 Tomato Slicer – single row ¼ steam tray

The MCT 5 is a semi-automated single row slicer. The machine slices six tomatoes per cycle which can yield up to seven slices per tomato – or 42 slices per cycle. The MCT 5 can be operated at processing speeds of over 3 cycles per minute giving an average yield of over 400 lbs. per hour with one operator.

MCT 25 Tomato and Onion Slicer – single row ¼ steam tray

The MCT 25 Tomato and Onion Slicer model is fully integrated with a Pick & Place unit, which allows more than one operator to load, increasing productivity. The machine slices six tomatoes or onions per cycle which can yield up to seven premium slices per tomato – or 42 slices per cycle. The MCT 25 can be operated at processing speeds of over 10-12 cycles per minute giving an average yield of over 1,500 lbs. per hour with five operators.

MCT 25 Double Row Slicer – Two  ¼ steam trays

The MCT 25 Double Row Slicer builds on Maxwell Chase Technologies’ knowledge of intricate placing and packing tomatoes to allow several operators to load, further increasing productivity. The machine slices 12 tomatoes per cycle which can yield up to seven premium slices per tomato – or 84 slices per cycle. The MCT 25 Double Row Slicer can be operated at processing speeds of over 12 cycles per minute giving an average yield of over 3,000 lbs. per hour with five operators. Equating to a labor cost of $0.02 per pound.

MCT 10 Tomato Slicer – three row ½ steam tray

The MCT 10 is a semi-automated single row slicer. The machine slices seven tomatoes per cycle which can yield up to six slices per tomato – or 42 slices per cycle. This equates to 126 slices in a ½ steam tray. The MCT 10 can be operated at processing speeds of over 3 cycles per minute giving an average yield of over 300 lbs. per hour with one operator.

MCT 50 Tomato Slicer – three row ½ steam tray

The MCT 50 Tomato Slicer model is fully integrated with a Pick & Place unit, which allows more than one operator to load, increasing productivity. The machine slices seven tomatoes per cycle which can yield up to six premium slices per tomato – or 42 slices per cycle. This equates to 126 slices in a ½ steam tray. The MCT 50 can be operated at processing speeds of 12 cycles per minute giving an average yield of over 1,300 lbs. per hour with just five operators.

The MCT Tomato Slicers integrate with the Maxwell Chase Technologies “Fresh-R-Pax” absorbent trays, resulting in a dramatic improvement in shelf life to 14 days.
