Seafood Kitchen Tools
A new family of Whizard® Series II Trimmers is now available from Bettcher Industries. The 1900 Family models are specially designed for salmon slicing and other seafood trimming applications. When performing salmon slicing or other thin-slicing operations, these trimmers produce longer, wider slices for more attractive retail packaging. In addition, the easily adjustable depth gauge allows for both flexibility and precision in the thickness of the slices. The 1900 Family models are part of Bettcher Industries' Whizard® Series II line of modular trimmers. The trimmers incorporate patented design elements to enhance operator productivity, safety and comfort, including captive hex-head housing screws that provide faster, easier removal and reinstallation of the blade housing and blades. The new design also makes it easier for operators to fine-tune the blade adjustment. A new blade/housing interface generates lower vibration "chatter" and less heat, thereby improving worker operating conditions. An enhanced gear mesh design contributes to smoother blade operation, while better proximity to the built-in steeling device button makes steeling blades quicker and more comfortable. All Series II hand pieces feature a contoured handle design to reduce grip force and torque momentum. Operators choose from three handle sizes, which are easily interchangeable. Made of Trefsin®, a food- and medical-grade material, the handles are color-coded by size for easy identification. They are very comfortable, even during periods of extended use. An attachable hand-strap provides operators with added control, while the flex shaft/casing attaches to the hand piece with a simple two-action motion.
