TruClean™ Wirecut

  • Benefits

    The TruClean™ Wirecut brings automation and flexibility to the production of wirecut cookies and bars. Best-in-class weight control is achieved through die and filler block technology unique to Baker Perkins wirecuts. Exceptional reliability, fast changeovers, low waste and minimal giveaway enable high production rates to be maintained while keeping operating costs low. Adhering to Baker Perkins’ TruClean™ standard, the TruClean™ Wirecut has been designed in accordance with the latest industry guidelines on sanitation to reduce cross-contact risks and cleaning times.

    Unique dual servo system with low operating and upgrade costs

    Fast changeovers, low waste and minimal giveaway along with easier cleaning reduces operating costs; open access, fewer moving parts and easy removal of components means maintenance costs are also reduced. The traditional mechanical system, with many manual adjustments, has been replaced by a unique dual servo system with minimal parts. The TruClean™ Servo Wirecut is compatible with existing Baker Perkins filler blocks and dies.

    Servo-driven for precise, one-touch recipe control

    A two-axis servo system provides infinite variability to the cutting and return paths, enabling optimum cutting performance at high speeds or on difficult dough. Tailored profiles can be created for each individual product and loaded at the touch of a button. Intuitive touch-screen controls provide full process visualization, historical trending, alarm history and recipe management.

    Unique die and filler block technology for precise weight control

    The TruClean™ Wirecut offers outstanding weight accuracy of +/- 1% on plain dough and 2% on dough with inclusions, through unique die and filler block technology. The filler block ensures consistent product weight accuracy across the band, with less giveaway and less waste. The clamshell head allows rapid, tool-free removal of the filler block and die assembly for cleaning and fast product changeovers. For products with inclusions, cutting consistency and deposit accuracy can be improved with an oscillating knife.

  • Options

    Angled Overhead Wirecut

    The angled overhead wirecut machine delivers up to 25% higher production. It lays down soft dough wirecut cookies at an angle to create "nested patterns": these improve utilisation of the baking surface in the oven. 

    By positioning the machine head at an angle to the oven band, dough pieces can be nested to increase product density. This optimization of the available oven band area produces significant production gains. These rise from 14% on 38mm diameter cookies to 25% with 100mm diameter cookies.

    The angled wirecut is part of the TruClean™ range which brings a radically innovative approach to hygienic design. It provides best-in-class dough piece weight control, ease of cleaning, simplicity of operation and fast product changeovers.

    Double Eccentric Guillotine

    The double eccentric guillotine is positioned after the Wirecut to cut the continuous strip of product into bar lengths.

    The mechanism provides a two stage precise cutting action. Rapid blade movement during the cutting phase reduces product distortion and sticking. Product length is easily and quickly adjusted between bite size and full size bars. The guillotine handles a wide range of products, and large inclusions such as dry fruit, nuts and grains. It gives a clean cut through tough and difficult materials.

    A blade heater and blade scraper are available to clean the blade when working with more challenging products. This helps reduce maintenance costs by ensuring long intervals between cleaning.

    Encapsulation Module

    Filled cookies can be produced on a standard wirecut machine using an optional encapsulation module and iris cutter. Baker Perkins’ encapsulation system can be fitted to any wirecut to convert the machine from a standard unit to one that can do both cookies and encapsulated cookies.
