KIT to make Cuts in Cheese, Butter, Margarines

Kit Pruebas Corte Quesos y Mantequillas

Available markets: Worldwide

  • It is mainly used for cutting butter, cheese, lard and self-supporting block samples.

    It incorporates three options for different types of hardness of the sample, consisting of a U-shaped support that is connected to the texturometer load cell through an extension bar. The support can accept a wire for cutting of high tensile strength. The test is a limited compression from a known height.

    Once the test conditions have been established (pre-loads – test speed – penetration on the sample …), the sample is placed between the test tools and the test start button is pressed on the Touch Screen or by means of the mouse. After the end of the test, the upper mobile crosspiece returns to its initial test position and the equipment is ready for a subsequent test automatically.

    When working from the MetroTEST test program, numerical values ​​and graphs of test strength and deformation / penetration or elongation in% or real values, are shown in the test menu on the monitor, these data can be saved for later management of them, statistical calculations, Gauss bells, Bar Graphs and Comparisons of Tolerances.

    We have a wide range of test tools such as:
    Cylindrical Testing Probes – Conical Testing Probes – Spherical Testing Probes – Cutting and Shearing Testing Device Meats “WARNER BRATZLER” – Shearing Cells type KRAMER – Testing Kit Cutting Cheese and Butter – Compression Plates – Test Bridges Flexural Resistance in 3 Points – Set Bite Tooth “VOLODKEVITCH” – Cell Extrusion Rice – Cell Extrusion “OTTAWA” – Set of Penetration Probes “MAGNESS-TAYLOR” – KIT of Flexion and Chips Fracture – KIT Resistance Tests GEL “BLOOM” – Kit Stretch Testing – Extension Capacity – Reverse Extrusion Test Kits “Back Extrusion” – Direct and Reverse DUAL Extrusion Test Kits “Forward & Back Extrusion” – Test Set Spaghetti Traction – Resistance Test KIT COMPRESSION Spaghetti – Dough Cutting Sheet for Noodles – Tagliatelle – KIT Testing Adhesiveness / Stickiness Cooked Pasta …

  • Principles

    This device is used to measure the resistance to cutting of block products such as cheeses, butter, margarines, …

    The value obtained is the average force between two preset points = FIRMNESS

    The Food Texture Analyzer (Texturometer) FTM-50 is a cost-effective and easy-to-use solution for rapid testing, detailed texture analysis in applications up to 1 kN (225 lbf).
    The benefits of texture analysis Texture analysis can highlight the opportunities for quality improvement along the supply chain and in the production process. The use of new or alternative ingredients can be compared with existing ingredients.
    In production, the texture analysis is used for the measurement and control of process variations such as temperature, humidity and cooking time. An analysis of texture profile assays can replicate the effect of two bites on a sample. The Texture Analysis Software MetroTEST captures strength, distance and time during the test, allowing the calculation of critical texture parameters, such as:
    Adhesiveness – Texture profile analysis – Cohesiveness – Consistency – Simple crunch (crisp) – Crunch – Hardness – Elasticity – Cutting effort – Penetration effort – Slicing effort – Extensibility – Firmness – Fracturability – Gelification – Strength rupture – Gummies – Chewableness – Mechanical rigidity – Tightness ..


  • Basic Applications

    Block solid foods, Cheeses, Butter, Margarines

  • KIT of cutting tests composed of the following elements:


    • U-shaped frame + Load Cell Adapter
    • 1 Blade in stainless steel of 100 mm length and a radius of cut of R1 mm (for CHEESES)
    • 1 Blade in stainless steel of 100 mm length and a cutting radius of R0,5 mm (for CHEESES)
    • 1 100 mm long stainless steel wire with a cutting radius of R0,7 mm (for BUTTER)
      * (The blades and cutting wire are easily exchanged to use the most appropriate depending on the firmness of the product to be tested)
