Berkel Slicer – Model 115H
Built in the period between 1953 and 1980, this was the last model of antique flywheel slicers built by Berkel. The company described it as a perfect machine, as it is certainly the best result of the experience the company gained since its foundation.
At first sight, it has nothing to do with its Berkel ancestors. The casing of the machine has a rounded shape in step with the fashions of times, all mechanical movements are covered either by carter or like the connecting rods inside the casing itself. The upper carriage, almost completely made of stainless steel in the contact side with the product to be cut, slides through a large pin, and has the feed screw underneath the carriage driven by the classic slice adjustment “clock”, in aluminium and bakelite.
The upper clamp is “open arm” type, and has two small columns at the back side. All this is driven by a solid flywheel with a slightly conical shape without any inscription.
The shoulder, which is also rounded and resized, contains the sharpener, which for the first time, is not visible during the machine operation.
The blade is 370 in diameter.
For its mechanical qualities, it is certainly the most precise and functional machine that Berkel has ever produced.
