This machine produces piles, each consisting of two cream sandwiched biscuits. The biscuits can be round or rectangular, with a single or co-deposited filling. The piles are collated into packs in lengths of 1-6 piles. The principal application is for vending machines; longer retail packs with a card insert are also possible.
The pile pack machine has a single lane, and the two sandwiches are, uniquely, created one above the other. Creaming is sequential, with the first sandwich completed before the second is begun. There are no complex lane merging devices. The piles are collated into the required pack length and fed directly to a Horizontal Form-Fill-Seal wrapping machine. There is no need for cooling. This seamless operation reduces capital cost, complexity, downtime and waste
Rigid pin chain construction and stable product support ensure continuous operation. A soft start/stop facility reduces product disturbance and waste. Optional product sensors enable operators to deal promptly with magazine jams. Accurate weight control is achieved by individually controlled pumps to each stencil outlet; and separate inverter drives for the cream pumps.
Easy to use and clean
PLC control enables the complete sandwiching system to be operated from a single location. A clear, intuitive touch screen interface helps operators to maximize efficiency. An air blast cleaner and a rotary brush keep the pin chain clean during normal operation. Wide opening covers give easy access for routine cleaning; there is full washdown capability in the product area.
