Slicer Berkel B9 was produced starting from 1936 until 1969. It’s a professional meat slicer with restrained dimensions but advanced mechanical characteristics and slicing efficiency, comparable to the most sophisticated models. This is a closed smooth flywheel meat slicer. This last one operates the gears under the machine base, which in turn generate the movement of its 319mm diameter blade – through a change – and its scroll carriage – through two connecting rods. Also, the carriage moves upon some driven wheels by a binary present on the machine base. Here the slicing synchronism is similar to previous models 5 -7. Yet, some parts of Berkel model 9 with pedestal have been modified and optimized so to be used by the company for all the other models until the 60s. In model B9 the worm screw and the straight ribbed comb are no longer present, but the conical screw. Also the comb has got a doubled contact surface than before and it is no longer assembled on the fixing clamp. In fact it is situated on a telescope scrolling headframe inserted in the worm screw at a high coupling charge. This, along with the conical coupling, allow to compensate the machine comb wearing and obtain the best efficiency and life cycle of the flywheel meat slicer.
Upon the headframe a pivot pokes out where the clamp stays inserted and blocked into. The worm screw and headframe of this professional meat slicer are not at sight, but covered by a shaped carter. On the machine base is a graduated knob for the slice thickness regulation which operates a peck-shaped lever axially linked with the cog-wheel present on the carriage. The movement of this wheel will then be exerted to the worm screw where the telescope comb holder headframe lies into. This last one, to conclude, being hooked to the clamp will generate the slicing movement.
In this manual slicer is a lever connected to the cog wheel, which once manual operated in the two directions, allow to move the clamp right or left to the desired position. The blade hub is fixed in the machine shoulder, which on its external side looks flattened performing a wing-shaped bow. This allows to extend the tray of this manual slicer and so gain more working surface during use. The model in question is a closed sharpener flywheel meat slicer with a painted crown upon.
