This specification covers the design and performance requirements pertinent to the construction of electrically operated commercial bread slicing machines. Bread slicing machines are classified into types according to feed mechanism, classes according to knife type, and styles into mountability, as follows: Type I-gravity feed; Type II-mechanical single-loaf feed; and Type III-mechanical multiple-loaf feed; Class I-reciprocating knife; Class II-circular knife; Class III-sickle knife; and Class IV-continuous (band) knife; Style I-countertop or stand mounted; Style 2-floor mounted; and Style 3-portable. Representative production models of the bread slicing machines shall pass operational and performance tests, and should function satisfactorily as specified.View Less
