Two new features on Baker Perkins' largest biscuit cream sandwiching machines aim to cut downtime and waste in high output operations.
Six-lane, high-speed sandwiching systems from the company offer outputs with up to 4,800 sandwiches a minute on some products. With these machines, biscuits in a wide range of sizes can be made, including the increasingly popular bite-size products.
To achieve maximum levels of quality and efficiency at these speeds, a thorough understanding of the process and precision engineering of the equipment are necessary.
Two problems that become more difficult to solve as the speed increases are: accurately positioning the cream deposit on the bottom biscuit, and then reliably placing the second biscuit on top. These issues are addressed by a new feature that makes misalignment of the pusher pins virtually impossible, thus allowing more accurate positioning of the cream deposit, plus an additional stability feature on the six-lane creamer that gives broader and more stable support.
