3.1 - CHECK ON THE PACKAGE UPON ARRIVAL
If no external damage is evident on the package upon its arrival, open it and make sure that all the
components are inside and that the machine has not suffered any damage (see FIG. No. 3). If the
package has suffered from rough handling, has bumps or crashes, the carrier must be informed about
any damage; moreover a detailed report on the extent of the damage caused to the machine must be
filled in within three days from the delivery date shown in the shipping documents. Do not overturn the
package!! When the package is transported make sure the box is lifted by the 4 corners (parallel to the
ground).
CHAP. 4 - INSTALLATION
4.1 - SETTING UP OF THE SLICER
Slicer must be installed upon a working table suitable for the slicers overall dimensions shown in
Table No. 2 (according to the model); therefore it must be adequately large, well levelled, dry, smooth,
resistant, stable and well lit. The slicer should be placed at a height of 30” from the ground. The machine
o
must be installed in a room with max. 75% not saline humidity at a temperature between 40 F and
o
95 F; that is to stay in a place that does not provoke the slicer failure.
4.2 - ELECTRIC CONNECTION
4.2.1 -Motor Specifications
The slicer is equipped with a SJT AWG 14 power supply cord 4.3 ft long. Connect the slicer with a 120
Volt - 60 Hertz grounded electric outlet.
Moreover check that the technical data described in the rating plate - serial number (FIG. no4)
corresponds with the features shown in the consignment and delivery note.
FIG. No. 4 - Rating plate - serial number
4.3 - TESTING PRIOR TO OPERATION
Before testing the slicer check that the meat hopper is blocked and then try the functions according to
the following procedure:
1.
Adjust the switch to the "I" switch-on position and then to the "O" switch-off position (see
FIG. No. 5);
2.
Check the sliding of the product table and meat pusher;
3.
Check the functioning and adjustment of the plate through the thickness control knob;
4.
Check the functioning of the sharpener;
5.
Check that the slicer switches off by unscrewing the blade tightener knob (only for
slicers with blade guard microswitch).

CHAP. 5 - OPERATING OF THE SLICER
5.1 -CONTROLS
Controls are placed on the left hand side of the base as shown in the picture below.
HDPS-12 Slicers have a rotary switch.
1. Thickness control knob adjusts the cutting thickness.
2. The switch can be adjusted to two settings:
a) switch-on setting (|), b) switch-off setting (0).
FIG. No. 5 - Position of controls
5.2 - LOADING AND SLICING OF PRODUCTS
WARNING:
Products to be cut must be loaded on the
product table only when the thickness control knob is set
to the “O" position. Pay attention to blade and sharp edges.
The procedure is as follows:
1. Once the product has been placed onto the product
table and placed against the plate, lock in place with the pusher;
2. Adjust the thickness control knob to obtain the desired
cutting thickness;
To avoid accidents, the person who is cutting has to face the
machine and stand correctly: put the right hand on the pusher,
and then the left one beside the deflector (do not touch the blade);
the body must be perpendicular to the working surface(see FIG. No. 6a),
3. WARNING: Pay maximum attention: no parts of your body should
enter in contact with the blade (see FIG. No.7b) because of the risk of
serious injuries. KEEP HAIR AND LOOSE CLOTHING CLEAR OF
ALL MOVING PARTS.
4. Push the switch-on button "I";
5. Smoothly push the carriage (product table + pusher + stem) back
and forth, without exerting pressure on food with the pusher
since the same pusher will feed the product toward the knife due to
gravity force. The blade will easily cut food and slices will be
guided by the deflector onto the collecting plate (see FIG. No. 7);
6. Do not operate the slicer without product;
7. Once product has been cut, set the thickness control knob to
the "O" position and switch off the machine by setting the
switch to the "O" position;
8. Resharpen the blade as soon as slices show a rough or frayed
surface and the cutting becomes difficult (see 5.3).

5.3 - SHARPENING OF BLADE (see FIG. No. 9 a-b-c)
5.3.1
Blade sharpening of slicer with built-in sharpener
WARNING: SHARPENING OPERATION WILL EXPOSE KNIFE.
Before preceding with blade sharpening, remain alert to the
RESIDUAL RISKS (see §1.2.2) that refer to the hazard of serious
injuries if the instructions below are not followed.
The blade must be sharpened periodically (at least once a day
when you use it). As soon as the blade becomes blunt, it is
necessary to follow the detailed instructions:
1. TURN OFF, UNPLUG THE MACHINE and clean
blade with denatured alcohol.
2. Loosen the sharpener locking knob (1), lift the sharpener (2)
o
up to the locking position (a) and let it rotate 180 (b).
3. Let it move up to the travel end (c) so that the blade is
positioned between the two sharpening stones. Relock the
knob (1).
4. Turn on the slicer.
5. Push the sharpening stone button (3), let the blade rotate
against the grinding mole for 30 - 40 sec. to produce burr
on the blade edge.
6. Push sharpening and deburring buttons (3 and 4) simultaneously
for 3 - 4 seconds and then leave them simultaneously.
7. NOTE: Do not carry out this operation for more than a few
seconds, as mentioned above, in order to prevent the
dangerous twisting of the blade cutting edge.
8. It is recommended to clean the sharpening stones after the
sharpening procedure (see sharpener cleaning § 6.2.3).
Once the sharpening has been completed, set the slicer to its
original position with the reverse procedure and switch it off.
