Description for the cookie forming machine
Rotary moulder is designed to form and extract soft dough cookies onto cotton canvas and after that to feed them to 400 x 600 trays. Main components of the rotary moulding machine are forcing roll, moulding roller, extraction roll and scraper. To reduce pressure differences and to minimise the chance of bridging of the dough, hopper should not be filled completely. Scraping knife position is important. High position will prevent overfilling the cavity on moulding roller and biscuit dough piece shape will not be gained well also extracion issues may occur. Low position will overfill the cavity and so formed dough piece will be extracted with a tail of dough. All speeds are adjustable via VFDs. Top of the reservoir is with grid for safety purpose. Machine is equipped with tray feeder, tray conveyor, rotating rod to scrap bottom of formed cookies. Advantages of moulding is that it is not necessery to form a dough sheet and there is not cutter scrap which has to be recycled.
