Band Slicer

Band Slicer. A bread slicer in which a pair of large revolving steel drums positioned at the top and bottom of the machine drive endless band blades that are given a l80¦ twist between the two drums. Properly spaced fingerlike guides, positioned both above and below the slicing zone, stabilize the blades and direct their cutting edge at right angle to the longitudinal center line of the loaves (q.v.) that are fed sideways through them.
