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
