Improved Cutting Operations in Food Processing

  • Adler-Nissen, Jens (Project Participant)

Project Details

Description

Precise and reproducible cutting depends on 1) the proper geometrical design of the blade (sharpness), 2) the material properties of the cutting tool and 3) the mechanical and tribological interaction between the tool, the food material as well as a third party material (e.g. cutting board). While the patent literature in the field is extensive, fundamental mechanical studies of cutting operations are rare.
