    ICO 3000

    Throughout the 30 years of operation here at Cutting Edge Services, we’ve always put safety at the core of everything we do. As a market-leading supplier of food processing machinery, services and consumables, we have a long history of pioneering solutions that improve safety for our customers, without compromising on efficiency.

    Our new ICO 3000 safety system perfectly epitomises that focus. It’s been developed by our own world-class engineers, working closely with the market-leading German manufacturer Nock. The result is a revolutionary, unique safety system for Nock’s range of open-top skinning & derinding machines. It’s exclusive to Cutting Edge Services, which means you won’t find anything like it anywhere else on the market. Here’s exactly what it can offer your business!


    It keeps your operators safe

    Quite simply, the ICO 3000 was built with safety in mind. Its innovative mechanism guarantees that the skinning/derinding machine is safe to use by cutting the power within milliseconds in the event that the operator’s glove meets the blade. That protects your staff from the immediate risk of sustaining a serious injury at work (especially since some accidents with skinning/derinding machines have the potential to result in life-changing injuries).

    Staff in commercial and industrial sectors have always been at a disproportionately high risk of workplace injuries compared to those working in other industries. We recognise that here at Cutting Edge Services, which is why we designed the ICO 3000 to provide vital protection to the people who need it most.

    Maintain high levels of efficiency and productivity

    The ICO 3000 has also been designed with an ultrafast reset procedure, so in the event that the safety mechanism is triggered for whatever reason, your staff can begin using the machine again the moment they feel safe enough to do so. This essentially minimises the potential downtime that would otherwise be involved, allowing your team to maintain high levels of efficiency and productivity. (That is, of course, to say nothing of the downtime that would be involved in the event that one of your staff sustains an actual injury!)

    Enjoy complete peace of mind

    As well as physical protection for your staff, the effectiveness of the ICO 3000 also provides you with significant legal protection as a business. Accidents and injuries in the workplace cost the food manufacturing industry hundreds of thousands of pounds per year in injury claims, and cutting down on the risk of those accidents means that you’re also saving yourself from the (often expensive) legal ramifications of those claims.

    Most important though, the ICO 3000 gives you peace of mind that your operators are able to do their jobs without fear of injury, ensuring a happy, healthy, and highly productive environment.

    Damian Penfold, Senior Capital Machinery Specialist for Cutting Edge Services, said: “These last two years have seen our highly trained technicians work in conjunction with Nock to develop the ICO 3000 Safety System. It’s a completely exclusive and unique instant cut out system that has a microsecond activation time, ensuring your operators do not receive nicks, cuts, or harm when they come in contact with the roller.”
