TURBO MIXER SECTION
BATTER & CREAM PREPARATIONS
The pre-mixing equipment can be made in various sizes according to the productivity required. We offer two dedicated mixing system, one for batter and one for cream. The turbo mixer (TT Italy Coolwhipper) is designed to emulsify and aerate batter and cream using air, in order to achieve the desired final specific gravity. Emulsification is achieved thanks to the design and building technology of rotor and stator.
The C.I.P. (Cleaning In Place) unit is engineered to wash and sanitize production plants (turbo mixers) without the need of disassembling them.
PRE OVEN SECTION
SPONGE ROLLER DEPOSITOR
The roller depositor creates a layer of batter deposited directly on the oven belt. The batter deposit can be regulated both in width and in thickness.
DECORATION BEFORE OVEN
With our before oven decoration technology you can personalize your products. Choose decoration color and pattern.
Cyclothermic ovens are the best solution for sponge cake. This kind of ovens combine the power and control to perfectly bake the sponge cake while controlling the internal moisture of the product.
The cooling conveyor allows you to cool down the sponge cake while keeping under control the moisture of the product, thanks to the stainless steel conveyor. This delicate part of the process is easily managed by the technology developed by our engineering department.
The longitudinal cutter is made of a stainless steel shaft holding the cutting blades. The rotating blades cut the sponge cake longitudinally. The width of the cuts changes according to the final product to be made.
SYRUP DOSING UNIT
This machine is designed to dose syrup – either alcohol or non-alcohol based – on the sponge cake sheet after the longitudinal cutter. Syrup will give flavour and moisture to the final product.
The cream and jam dispenser are custom made according to the final product and to the final cake. The dispenser is designed to regulate the dosage homogenously on the sponge cake. Nozzles are made in plastic resin for an easy and quick format change and cleaning.
The sponge cake rollers are made in two versions, one for big rolls and one for mini rolls. The number of tools for the production rolls varies according to the number of rows that will be produced according to the width of the workbench. Each rolling group has a dedicated servo motor to perfectly control the rolling speed and constantly control the production.
TWO LAYER FOLDING TOOLS
The tools to produce two layer cakes are made of:
– a work station with plows to overturn the cake
– a work station with lateral guides to align the two layer cakes
– a final work station to adjust the finished cake thickness.
FAMILY SIZE TOOLS
Family size layer cakes are formed with a special configuration of overlaying conveyors. Each conveyor will guide the sponge cake sheet on its final position. The final size of the cake is fully customizable.
The Girella forming tool is a dedicated working area to produce the girella cake. A specific roller device rolls the sheet of sponge cake transversally to the line, creating a roll wide as the deposited cake. After the rolling a specially designed tool separates the cut cakes and deposits the finished product on the conveyor.
TRI-LAYER CAKES TOOLS
The triple layer cakes is made with special shares and overlay conveyors.
The work phases are:
– creation of the first double layer cake with cream filling
– overlaying the first double layer on another layer of cake with cream on it
– sizing the final product
The transversal cutter is available in different sizes and the dimensioning is strictly linked to the line width. Knifes lowering and product tracking is driven by brushless motors. The double vibrating blades are driven by inverter controlled motors.
TRANSVERSAL ULTRASONIC CUTTER
The feature that distinguishes the ultrasonic cutting system is the way it cuts the products with great amounts of cream. The system, in fact, avoids damaging the product squeezing the filling during the cutting phase, using ultrasonic vibrations.
COATING / DECORATING SECTION
The VA MODEL coating machine for surrogate has a modular design and can vary from 600 Up to 1200 mm in width.
The TE MODEL decorators for chocolate/surrogate has a modular design and can be of various lenghts from 600 to 1200 mm.
