Á???????ÁThe imported article is a commercial food slicing machine, identified as The Polar Ultrashear, and commercially designated as models PUSC©1, PUSG©2 or PUSG©3, depending on the desired configuration. The stainless steel food slicing machine consists of knives, each complete with its own booster, transducer and generator. The various components are assembled into a complete food slicing machine by Polar Process Incorporated in Ontario, Canada. In operation, reciprocating blades vibrating at ultrasonic frequency slice through various food products such as nuts, raisons, other hard fruits, and so on, slicing and cutting the products to smaller sizes. You state that these machines will typically be used by industrial manufacturers to cut, slit or shear a wide variety of food products.

Á???????ÁThe applicable subheading for the ultrasonic food slicing machine will be 8438.80.0000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other machinery for the industrial preparation or manufacture of food or drink. The rate of duty will be free.
