KA3 and KA6 Apricot Stoning Machine

The machine pits apricots in two halves along the suture line and it is suitable to pit fruit even if not perfectly
graded. All parts in touch with fruit are for alimentary and hygienic purposes. The structure is completely in stainless steel.
The apricots, appropriately unloaded into the Feeder, are put into the channels of the Orientation Station that orients the fruits and position them at the ideal cut through appropriate and particular devices. The flexibility of the orientation elements allow the machine to compensate automatically the fruits differences not perfectly graded.
The Cutting Station is made up by a particular circular blade that divides the fruit in two halves leaving the stone intact and loose one to separate from the pulp. It happens, thanks to the oscillating mechanism which is able to compensate the different dimensions of the stone. The fruits are unloaded into the chute (Vibrator only on the model Ka3).
