This machine is suitable to automatically top and tail carrots, zucchini, cucumbers, salsify, and several other oblong vegetables. The machine can also segment the vegetables if required. The top and tail machine is composed by a feeder and a line-up system, both synchronized with the conveyor to the cutting heads.
