Groat cutter type Krone 2

The evolution of a precise classic

Groat cutter type Krone 2

This machine is used to manufacture cut grain kernels that are sliced perpendicular to the longitudinal axis, called steel cut groats. The new version Krone 2 impresses with exceeding cleanliness and improved performance.

Maximum throughput and efficient operation

Via an adjustable vibrating trough, the grain is fed into the machine. Subsequently, the cutting process takes place with the aid of two perforated drums and blade cages attached to a swivelling frame. Rotating toothed rollers ensure that the over 6,500 holes in the drum are constantly being cleaned.

Experience the next generation

Unlike its predecessor, the new machine does not have a closed housing at the base. The discharge hopper is steeper and the groat cutter can be connected to an intensive extraction system via a specially designed aspiration duct and throttle valve. Furthermore, the space requirements were significantly reduced and maintenance simplified. For example, it is no longer necessary to dismantle the main bearing when replacing the drum.

Easy sharpening of blades

Custom adjustment of the blade spacing makes it possible to sharpen the blades multiple times. It is also possible to react flexibly to quality fluctuations in the harvest. The blade cages can be rotated by 180 degrees for inspections and maintenance without having to remove the upper section of the machine.
