The Whizard® Series II Trimmer (Model 925) from Bettcher Industries is the ideal tool for tackling the challenges of trimming and cleaning Prosciutto di Parma and other air-dried hams.
Featuring a special circular serrated blade along with an adjustable depth gauge and an available post handle, the Model 925 trimmer is engineered to improve cutting performance on Parma hams – speeding up the cleaning procedure while requiring less effort when compared to using a straight knife or older powered circular knife models.
Aided by the trimmer’s highly maneuverable serrated circular blade powered at speeds up to 5,000 rpms using Bettcher’s UltraDrive™ Motor, the cutting procedure is dramatically faster, thereby improving worker productivity and increasing bottom-line profits.
Whizard® Trimmers (Model 925) for Parma ham trimming and cleaning improve meat yields while at the same time reducing excess stress to the hand and forearm of the operator because less force is needed to clean the ham.
For finish trim procedures, Bettcher also offers a unique two-handed grip option to further reduce forearm stress. This removable post handle option, designed for either left- or right-hand operation, is a highly effective added feature for trimming the hard fat/salt crust on the face of the ham.
The Model 925 Whizard® trimmer is a versatile tool that is perfect for trimming Prosciutto di Parma (Parma hams), Jamón Serrano and Jamón Ibérico (Spanish hams), and other air-dried hams or “hard” meat products. Compared to the conventional practice of using a straight knife, the cutting procedure is faster, more precise and less fatiguing when using these trimmers.
Moreover, the cutting procedure can be performed effectively and efficiently – even by lesser-skilled workers – when using the Whizard® Trimmer’s adjustable depth gauge. This special attachment enables operators to avoid inadvertently making deeper cuts than necessary, thereby minimizing waste and improving yield.
Whizard® Series II Trimmers from Bettcher Industries incorporate a variety of patented elements that enhance operator productivity, ergonomics, comfort and safety. For example, all Series II handpieces feature a contoured handle to reduce grip force and torque momentum. Operators can choose from five handle sizes that are easily interchangeable. The handle sizes are color-coded for easy identification and are very comfortable – even during periods of extended use.
In addition, a hand-strap provides operators with added control if desired, while the flex-shaft/casing attaches to the handpiece with a simple two-action motion.
The Whizard® Series II Trimmer’s blade/housing interface generates less “chatter” and heat for reduced vibration, thereby improving worker operating conditions. An enhanced gear mesh design contributes to smoother blade operation, while better proximity to the built-in steeling device button makes steeling blades quicker and more convenient.
The highly effective performance features of Whizard® Series II Trimmers add a new degree of worker safety and comfort in processing Parma hams, along with generating higher meat yields and improving worker productivity.
