FAM Tridis 240P

The FAM Tridis™ 240P is a tridimensional dicer, designed for the very demanding French fry industry. Compared to other available cutting machines, the dicer increases capacity by 10% to 40%. Perfecting the product flow has led to an excellent cut quality and yield, with less slivers and fines. The maintenance of the FAM Tridis 240P is completely optimized, including an easy cartridge system to replace the spindle bearings. Perfect Performance made Easy.


  • Optimal product transit, with high passage speed, minimum path length and no obstructions, leads to ultimate cut quality
  • Compared to other available cutting machines, the FAM Tridis 240P increases capacity by 10% to 40%
  • Maintenance time reduced drastically by smart design and efficient auxiliary tools
  • Improved hygiene through maximum accessibility and sanitary design
  • Cutting tools can easily be replaced and adjusted thanks to a number of important Set & Forget™ features. Simplicity above all.

Key Features:

  • Obstruction-free product flow and minimal cutting zone length ensure ultimate cut quality.
  • A special infeed for French fries ensures the product enters the machine with an optimal orientation and speed.
  • The tailored 10 - paddle impeller ensures a correct positioning of the potatoes in order to obtain maximum capacity and optimal length.
  • The profiled drum ensures correct orientation of the product inside the drum allowing parralel crinkle pattern on both sides of the slices.
  • By optimizing the product flow, the FAM Tridis 240P is able to run at a higher velocity, which increases capacity, without compromising cut quality.
  • The bearings of the FAM Tridis 240P can easily be replaced thanks to the cartridge system.
  • Easy removal of the cutting tools ensures minimal downtime. The circular knife spindle can be removed by using the cassette system.
  • The FAM Tridis 240P is available with grease points, so the operator can easily control the lubrication of the bearings. Sealed bearings are possible as well.
  • The FAM Tridis 240P is a smart choice in terms of sanitation. The machine has no hidden corners or visible wires and the frame is open with only slant surfaces.
  • Existing FAM ILC.2 customers will be able to re-use their ILC.2 crosscut spindles on FAM Tridis 240P, as the spindles are identical.
  • Machine is equipped with a sanitary sealed electrical cabinet, which can be moved backwards away from the drive area to allow full access to this zone.
  • Various auxiliary tools are available to guarantee a quick changeover of the cutting tools and to simplify maintenance.

The infinitely adjustable slicing knife first cuts the product in slices. Next, the circular knives cut the slices in strips. Finally, the crosscut knife spindle cuts neat dices to the desired height.

The combination of three cutting tools allows a very high flexibility in the choice of cutting sizes and shapes.
