1. Cream Feed
The Cream Feed provides an accurately metered supply of cream to the sandwiching machine. Mixed cream is held in a water-jacketed hopper, before an auger screw transfers the cream from the hopper to a manifold that feeds the cream pumps.
Biscuit shells are stripped from infeed magazines by pairs of pin chains and pushed through the sandwiching machine on support wires. The bottom shell has cream deposited onto it before passing under a second infeed magazine, where addition of the top shell takes place. Final thickness is controlled by an adjustable presser.
Baker Perkins’ Pile Pack Sandwiching Machine is a specialised process for producing two-high piles of sandwiches packed end-to-end for vend packs of between one and six piles.
A Lane Multiplier may be used at the end of a sandwiching machine to increase the number of lanes prior to cooling, chocolate coating and/or wrapping. Multiplying the lanes allows cooling tunnels to be shorter, less costly and more efficient.
- Cream Sandwiching
Sandwiching creates value by adding interest and variety to a product range.
To do this profitably, a high level of automation is required. Baker Perkins offers systems covering a diversity of product, speed and presentation possibilities. All systems incorporate high-efficiency, easy-to-use features that ensure consistent quality levels over lengthy periods of operation. These complete systems, automated from cream feed through to lane multiplication, are the result of over half a century of experience.
Design is focused on reducing waste and maximizing value: features include rigid pin chain construction, stable product support, and a soft stop/start facility. Downtime is minimized by features that enable rapid cleaning. All machines are constructed for full washdown, and include wheeled bins for easy disposal of debris and water. There is excellent access to all parts, while cream hoppers, pumps and stencils can be rapidly dismantled and cleaned. High quality components and robust control systems ensure that Baker Perkins' sandwiching systems run faster for longer. Allied to precise weight control, the result is a plant that maximizes investment value.
New product possibilities are created by options that allow two deposits to be made simultaneously, allowing manufacturuers to add a semi-liquid centre filling such as jam, or inject a wide range of cream flavours.
