The Primo PS-12 12” Meat Slicer

The new Primo semiautomatic slicer is an improved table styled meat slicer. Its design provides sufficient pressure on the meat, resulting with better thickness control and cleaner slices. These improvements allow for ease of operation. Operators will be able to easily slide the deck support. Cleaning and maintaining the slicer is also easier, allowing for quicker product changes.

  • Reliable and dependable belt drive design
  • Removable carriage for easy maintenance
  • Adjustable slicing knob
  • Built-in sharpener
  • Ring guard
  • Permanent lubricated carriage ball bearings to ensure quiet operation
  • .30HP


  • Place the machine on a flat stable work surface. Plug the power cord into a 120V outlet.
  • Raise up the meat pressing board and put the meat onto the meat deck, and press the green button.
  • Adjust the slicing thickness according to your need. Push and pull the Deck support by the handle.


Before the machine is used, the gliding systems and the pressing pole should be cleaned and well lubricated. This will allow for smooth movements of the carriage and pusher.

When slicing a wide variety of meats, best results are achieved when the meat is unfrozen. Recommended temperatures for meat products are 4C or 40F. In some cases, frozen meats can be sliced, but the temperature range should remain between -5C and 4C for best results.

Raise the Meat pressure Plate and place the meat onto the Meat Support Deck. Start the machine by pressing the Green Power button located on the side of the machine. Adjust the slice thickness by turning the Thickness Adjustment knob located on the side of the machine. You have a good range of thicknesses to meet your customers' requirements

The meat is sliced by sliding the meat Deck past the cutting blade. You pull the Meat Deck back to repeat the process. Continue until you have completed the order. Upon completion, move the meat Deck back off of the blade before removing the meat from the slicer.

Blade Sharpening

The blade should be sharpened frequently to achieve best results.

Clean the blade thoroughly to remove all debris. This debris can accumulate in the sharpening stone, reducing the sharpening capacity. The stone should be cleaned after each sharpening to again remove any debris caught on the stone.

Note: Ensure the unit is off before starting the blade sharpening operation. Do not rush through this operation. Care should be taken to avoid injury from the rotating components.

Step 1- Loosen the knob that secures the sharpening stones

Step 2-Pull up on the stone assembly and rotate the assembly 180 degrees so that the stones come in contact with the blade.

Step 3- Tighten the knob to secure the stone assembly in place.

Step 4- Press the green power button located on the side of the slicer. Ensure the blade is turning

Step 5- Locate the stone support pins located on the outside of the stone assembly. One is for the front and one is for the back of the blade. Place your hand on the top of the stone assembly guard and with your thumb push onto the pin located on the side of the assembly so that the stone contacts the blade. Hold this for 20-40 seconds. Repeat for the other stone – making sure you use your thumb to push the pin. This is to prevent your fingers from potential injury due to the rotating blade.

Step 6- Turn the power off and once the blade has stopped turning, wipe the blade to remove any debris.

Step 7- Loosen the knob on the stone assembly, lift up and rotate 180 degrees into its stored position. Tighten knob to secure the assembly in place.

Maintenance and Cleaning

All moving parts both static and automatic should be properly lubricated to maintain years of smooth operation of your slicer. Mineral oil must be used to lubricate the sliding parts.

Inspect all safety guards, the condition of the power cord and the overall condition of all the components of your slicer for cleanliness and integrity (no frayed ends or burrs). Visually inspect the blade. Insure there are no nicks or cracks nor debris.

Power on the slicer and inspect for smooth rotation of the blade. If you hear any abnormal noises, stop the slicer, unplug the unit and have a qualified service technician fix any issues. Continued use of the slicer, if abnormal noises are present could damage the unit and void your warranty. Noises such as rubbing, grinding or excessive vibration are a concern. An ozone or burnt smell could indicate an electrical problem. Unplug the unit immediately if you smell burning or ozone.

If service is required for your slicer, unplug the unit from the wall before dismantling the unit. Failure to do so could result in an electric shock to the service technician.

When cleaning the unit, use warm soapy water, not harsh chemicals and never use a pressure washer. Care must be taken when cleaning near or around the blade. The use of safety gloves is recommended.
