PXGBS Green Bean Snipper Series

Our bean snippers work well on green beans, snap beans, wax beans and similar.

Product Description

Our green bean snippers work on fresh-cut, frozen or shelf-stable green beans, snap beans and/or wax beans. The snippers cleanly top and tail the ends of the beans while leaving desired product intact. Our unique system creates beautiful, clean cuts while mitigating utilization losses. In higher capacity lines, this is often the 4th step.

Bean Snipper Process

A drum equipped is fitted with pockets (wavy or straight) for the bean ends. As the drum rotates and product progresses, beans are routed into the pockets. Rows of knives (up to 8, depending on capacity) clip the protruding end. As the beans move, both ends are eventually clipped.

Capacities can vary by product hygiene, growing conditions, output styles and other factors.
