Pneumatic pressure holds the product in place as it is driven through the 8 knife holders, which are placed at different angles and peel the product on all sides along the circumference.

The pneumatic pressure to the rollers is fully adjustable to suit variations in product sizes, this is easily accessible on the control panel.

The peeling waste is delivered through a waste chute beneath the machine.
