Inotec WT97-iT link cutter

Specially designed for the precise, fast and automated separation of curved sausage products on an industrial level

The Handtmann Inotec WT97-iT link cutter is optimally suited for the precise, fast and automated separation of curved sausage types in artificial, collagen or natural casing. The unique infeed/outfeed has been specially designed for curved sausage types and ensure maximum protection of your product. The patented sensor technology guarantees reliable detection of the linking position and ensures high-performance precision separation of the curved products.

Handtmann WT97 iT

Unique separating technology for curved products

The Inotec WT97-iT specifically processes curved sausage products in natural, collagen and artificial casing, covering a calibre range of 14 to 44 mm. Adaptation of the infeed and outfeed belts to the respective calibre is easily carried out via the digital touch control. With its specialised design for curved products and at the same time flexibility for all types of casings, the Inotec WT97-iT is unrivalled on the market.

Excellent cutting precision due to patented separating technology

Handtmann sausage separating technology stands for excellent, precise cutting quality of a wide variety of sausage products, including curved products. The centrepiece is the patented double sensor technology, which ensures automated and reliable detection of the linking position and thus provides a precise cutting point for the three-edged sickle blade. Furthermore, the cutting point and automatic cutting point detection can be flexibly adapted to the product on the user-friendly touch control.

Industrial high-performance separation of curved sausage products

At up to 1,800 cuts per minute, the Inotec WT97-iT sets the standard in terms of cutting performance also for curved sausage products, rendering it ideal for industrial use. This high performance is linked to product quality and is achieved by the patented sensor technology’s fully automatic positioning of the cutting point, enabling not only precise but also fast sausage separation. The servo-driven three-edged sickle blade ensures a particularly fast cutting sequence and a continuous production process.
