Frozen Slicing & Dicing



MAGURIT DICECUT and UNICUT: are designed for precise cutting of block-frozen meat, dairy and confectionery into cubes and strips. The UNICUT series includes the machines with a two-dimensional cut for strips and slices, while the DICECUT series three-dimensional cutting machines for strips and dices.

frozen slicing and dicing

UNICUT is an abbreviation of UNI-form CUT-ting, which can be translated as ” uniform cutting “.

What is special about these freezer cutters is the combination of the clean cut of a guillotine with a precise product feed and an integrated product hold-down device.

This means that the product is precisely positioned in front of the knives before it is cut. As a result, the product cannot avoid the knives and the “even cut” described above occurs.

UNICUT can also be used whenever raw materials are to be processed that do not slip on stainless steel, such as confectionery or some dairy products. This is where the feed and hold-down system offers the decisive advantage. The UNICUT is available with belt drive or with an integrated, pneumatic feed table.

Cutting temperature range between 0 and -25 degrees centigrade

Applications:  Frozen slicing and dicing of Frozen: Meat, Poultry, Fish, Vegetables, Cheese and pork scratchings.

Dicecut: Frozen Block Dicer



frozen block dicer

DICECUT is the epitome of precise cutting of frozen meat products into exact cubes and strips. When cutting frozen meat into cubes, when using the MAGURIT DICECUT 502 or 506  , lengthy tempering is often not necessary, which also prevents the loss of expensive raw material in the form of meat juice, which can be between 2 – 6%.

At the same time, the energy costs are significantly reduced and the processing process is significantly accelerated, with less microbiological contamination of the product and significantly reduced production costs, but at the same time a higher yield. With a cutting space of 420 x 240 x 900 mm for the DICECUT 502 or 630 x 240 x 1100 mm for the DICECUT 506 , all known EURO or US block formats can be processed without pre-shredding or compression. The machines can be operated by one employee, including loading the blocks of meat and removing the cut product, or they can be integrated into a complete processing line, including weighing and packaging.

Cutting temperature range between -4 and -25 degrees centigrade

Applications: Frozen slicing and dicing of beef, pork, poultry or fish

Cooking, Mixing and Vacuum Cooling


Blentech in the UK and Ireland

Blentech’s cookers, mixers and process equipment have earned a global reputation for quality and performance. However, until recently, because of the limited size of their rental fleet, only a select few have been able to test the equipment. The Innovation center changes that. Visit them at their new processing facility, located in the heart of California’s wine country in the state of the art hygienic food processing facility to see a demo and tour a facility using Blentech equipment.

If you are unable to travel then live streaming and filming of the trial is also possible.

They offer the following standard demonstrations at no cost to you. Applications range from Rice to Pie Filling. For some projects a general demonstration just isn’t enough as you may need to prove your process with your ingredients or replicate your recipe so custom demos are also available at a charge.

Located in California Wine Country at their Global Corporate Headquarters, the Blentech Innovation Center provides demonstrations, training, testing and research services.

The specialists for frozen block reduction


Magurit are renowned around the world for producing the highest quality, yield and durability machines.

Their Fromat and Starcutter range can reduce frozen blocks at temperatures between -25 to -18 centigrade saving you time and yield loss by not needing to temper the product as well as increasing safety for your production staff.

Ideal for the production of sausages, burgers, kebabs and much more:Frozen Block reduction

Machines from the FROMAT model series are guillotine cutters in which the blocks slide under their own weight in the direction of the vertically driven knives.

In all models, the knives are driven by a correspondingly powerful hydraulic system, and all common block shapes and sizes are cut cleanly, even at very low temperatures.

This makes the FROMAT ideal machines for pre-crushing the frozen blocks for further processing in cutters or grinders. Due to the clean cut, there is only little condensation on the surface . Therefore, these machines are also particularly suitable for raw sausage production.

Magurit offer different cutter heads for all models in order to achieve the best cutting result for the various requirements. FROMAT are very robust machines and our product range offers solutions for trade and industry, with hourly outputs from 800 kg to a maximum of 7,000 kg.

Applications:  Meat, Poultry, Fish, Vegetables, Cheese and Fruit

Starcutter: Frozen Block Flaker

Frozen Meat Guillotine

These freezer cutters with a rotating knife roller, type STARCUTTER, are characterized by continuous high cutting performance with a high-quality cutting pattern , even at very low temperatures.

The reasons for this lie in the special bow knife technology, the cutting roller geometry, the integrated block hold-down device and the block feed system, which means that even pressure is always exerted on the material to be cut.

The STARCUTTER series offers the most comprehensive range of rotary freezer cutters worldwide, for hourly outputs between 1,000 kg and 8,000 kg. We supply these machines for all capacity requirements, for all block sizes, by far the most versatile blade variations, and many options for production line integration.

charity dudes

Paragon supports Charity Dudes

Paragon staff took part in the annual Charity Dudes 2hr Endurance Go Karting event on the 3rd August at Lydd Race Circuit this year to raise money for CLIC Sargent- The Childrens Cancer Charity.

The day went really well. Weather was brilliant again and we got a great day’s racing in.  There were 7 teams and Paragon’s team came 5th on the day.

Charity Dudes raised a record  £1010.74  for CLIC Sargent- The Childrens Cancer Charity.

They  are a fundraising team made up of Matt Chance and Glenn Thompson and set it up as they love to push themselves to the limits with adventurous challenges and have always been like that. Over the last few years they started to do these challenges for different charities and found that they not only really enjoyed doing these challenges for them but  also got a lot out of raising money for people less fortunate than them that really needed their help.
