Machines of choice

We’ve mentioned already a few machines, some might know the difference between them, others not. So we’ve created a simplied overview for you:

  •           Rotary Moulder

The dough is entering the hopper and is being pressed by a corrugating roller/ cylinder into a cylinder with engravings. By pressure the engravings are filled and with a knife excess dough is cut of the roller. A belt is being used for extraction of the dough, the belt is of a specific kind and a roller is being used to make sure sufficient pressure is there to facilate this extraction.

  •           Wire-cutting
Here we have again a hopper and depending on the machine and for which type and kind of other products the machine can be used we have either 2 or 3 feeding rollers they fill a die plate that is being cut by a wire.

  •           Depositing
A depositing machine can be exactly the same as the wirecutting machine and in some cases feeding rollers can be exchanged to use the machine for e.g. more liquid products, such as batters for cakes.
Another kind of depositing is done by volumetric, this finds it’s way more in batters and fillings.

  •           Extrusion and Co-extrusion
Some extrusion machines are similar to the wirecutting and depositing machines, but technically extrusion implies that each depositing nozzle is individually fed. This feeding is mostly done by  a screw. In baking it is quite simple, in other industries pressure and temperature play a vital role in this to create the final product.
