Thurne Logo

With more than 45 years of experience in the bacon, cooked meat and cheese slicing industries, Thurne is renowned for innovative slicing systems that increase yields and productivity in processing plants around the world. Outstanding slice consistency and quality without thick, thin or sliver slices greatly enhance consumer appeal with far less rework and lower manning levels required to achieve the highest presentation standards.

No matter if producing fixed weight shingled drafts or food service layout and stand-up packs, Thurne slicers benefit from modular build, making your investment future-proof, and can be integrated with upstream and downstream equipment to achieve optimum performance and presentation.

Equipment conforms to stringent AMI and European safety standards, including CE certification. Slicers open to reveal all working parts for quick inspection, easy maintenance and fast, thorough cleaning.
