Sam Crooks
Technical Sales Manager
“Uniform product thickness is a key result from the JBT alco ASP flattener. This helps to ensure shorter cooking times, as well as producing a more consistent product quality through calibrated portions and a larger surface area. For products such as schnitzel or the North East speciality of Chicken Parmo, the desired product thickness can be defined in advance through a simple height adjustment of the machine’s rollers which evenly flattens the meat. Contact us for more information.”


JBT alco Flattening Machine ASP

The JBT alco Flattening Machine ASP flattens fresh and tempered frozen meat. Through its its unique feature, the machine guarantees individually set product thickness for all suitable products with low memory effect. The desired product thickness can be defined in advance by hand, through a height adjustment, ensuring your product meets all your requirements.

The innovative machine uses rubberised drive rollers to prevent belt slipping and utilises a fine water spray bar to prevent protein build up on the belt, ensuring a perfect product transfer through a pivotable outfield belt. There is also a collection tray for product residues, ensuring a clean-floor policy to maintain a hygienic production room.

Optional extras include additional belts to carefully adjust the product through the flattening process and extended infeed area providing additional space for preparation.
