Orienting & Halving Cherry Pitting Machine


ASHLOCK TYPE ‘RCP’ Cherry Pitter

The ASHLOCK TYPE ‘RCP’ Cherry Pitter singulates, orients, pits, and slices on a continual basis.  Its unique design allows cherries to be pitted while traveling at a maximum rate of 80 feet per minute.  This eliminates the stop and go action, which is common in other makes of cherry pitting machines

An orientation system aligns each cherry so that pits are removed through the stem end pocket.

The slicing unit slices cherries in equal halves on their centerline immediately after pitting.  This unit can easily be installed or removed in minutes to accommodate different production goals.

Change parts are supplied with the machine to handle the full range of sizes normally processed by the brined cherry industry.
