Corn Cutter for Sweet Corn Kernels

Our sweet corn kernel cutter is perfect for your frozen and shelf-stable (canned / jarred) sweet corn applications. It strips off kernels from already husked cobs of sweet corn.  

Product Description

The PROEX FOOD Sweet Corn Cutter is a fast and efficient way of cutting sweet corn kernels from the cob.

If you are looking to top and tail cut or create cobettes / medallions, please see our iNTELLIPRO® SAW.


The system can either be hand-fed, or integrated with PROEX FOOD Robotic Cutter Loading. The Cutter conveyor brings the ear to the infeed where it is fed into the cutter knive assembly.  The cutting head rotates at a constant speed and as the ear moves through it removes the kernels which drop through a port for further processing. The cob is then ejected out the discharge end of the cutter for disposal. Unlike some others, we primarily use a #3 head which adjusts to each cob, and is much less likely to jam – especially if a cob enters the system shank-end first.


The PROEX FOOD Corn Cutter is designed to cut 60-80 cobs (ears) per minute in manual mode, based on typical operator speeds. For robotic load options, depending on space and solution, individual units can achieve up to 120 cobs (ears) per minute*.

By default, we ship with #3 cutter heads. These more automatically accommodate variability of your corn supply. These systems are better at making real-time adjustments, recovering at a higher level, and jamming less. We can supply a #2 head, if desired.  Lift off covers easily expose inner mechanisms for efficient maintenance, inspection and cleanup.
