Characteristics of automatic potato french fries line

  • In the full-automatic French fries production line, it adds many elevators to connect two automatic potato processing machines. Therefore, the automated French fries production line only needs one or two people to control the machine display screen to operate.
  •  In order to thoroughly clean the impurities on the potato chips, the production line adds a washing machine for selecting the size of the finger chips.
