Automatic Bandsaw

SRA - Astech

Astech has designed an automatic saw for cutting both fresh and frozen bone-in or boneless product. It offers a high production rate, precision in the thickness of the cut, and the highest level of safety during use.

Astech is constantly redesigning the SRA automatic bandsaw in order to match our customers’ needs. The recent model launched in 2018 has new and updated features that are sure to guarantee satisfaction.

The SRA is no longer limited to the cut of frozen product as it is now able to cut fresh product with bone or fishbone. The temperature limit of the product is reduced which increases the possible range of product to be processed.

The bandsaw has a sawdust removing conveyor belt  integrated into the machine's standard design. The extraction can be done with plastic boxes, 200 liter Euro tubs, or big boxes.

Construction features
  • Quality of the cut: Constant cutting speed ensures high quality cuts.
  • High production rate: A single operator can work two machines simultaneously.
  • Operation versatility: The integrated program offers a wide range of options for cutting configurations. Different products may also be cut by simply changing the grippers
  • Safety: The entire machine is surrounded by a fence to prevent access to the interior, leaving open the loading area which is protected by a safety light curtain that stops the cycle whenever it is broken.
  • Hygiene: The entire machine, its mounting hardware and the safety fence are made from stainless steel and plastics that are safe for use in the food industry
  • Robustness: The machine’s chassis is made from high-thickness tubes and sheetsthat are welded together and assembled as a whole for exact adjustment and precise movements
