Depositing machines are widely used in pastry shops and bakeries to dispense different shapes, sizes and composition of dough pieces. A wide variety of nozzles are available which allows different products to be made with the same machine.
There are 4 basic formats of machinery:
- String cutting – which is used to make different shape flat cookies.
- Diaphragm cutting – which is used to make spice cakes and cookies with fillings in side.
- Depositing – dough is deposited in the form of various shape cookies
- Pouring into flat forms – liquid biscuit dough is fed onto prepared pans
Up to 900 kg/h
Production of spice cakes and simple biscuits
The Pitpack OP1 depositing machine is designed for depositing various half-finished pastries with or without filling onto a baking tray for further baking. Choux paste, spice and other kinds of soft dough can all be processed.
This machine is ideal for large manufacturing plants engaged in mass production of various products. The machine consists of a processing line with a baking conveyor and can be modified to accommodate a variety of baking tray widths – either 1000mm, 900mm, 680mm, or 600mm.
The extensively adjustable Pitpack OP1 comes in multiple configurations: for example, with string or diaphragm cutting options or with a stuffing feeding station which feeds filling inside products, which can be installed wherever convenient. It also features a throwing-over hopper, a quick detachable nozzle plate, and an easily-removed cutting unit to provide easy flushing and sanitisation.
The cells of the diaphragm cutting device are staggered to allow efficient use of the tray.
Controlled by a built-in microcomputer, the Pitpack OP1 allows changing of the depositing process from using the rollers in a continuous rotation mode, to an interrupted rotation mode or an interrupted reverse rotation mode.
All machine parts and surfaces that make contact with the products are made of stainless steel.
