Henricus Burgers founded his factory in 1869 where it already produced bicycles and sewing machine. The patent from the slicers of Henricus Burgers consists in the movement of the runner in semicircular senseand and have fulcrum in the right part allowing the use of a flat blade since moving the driver, the product comes to touch exclusively the sharp part of the blade avoiding any contact with the rest.
