The machine consists of a "tried and tested" high-performance wire-cut unit with the addition of a soft-centre co-extrusion kit which makes it possible to put creams or injectable jams into the centre of a dough piece.
Co-extrusion is obtained by the specially designed system consisting of a filler block and a co-extrusion plate and die. A set of pumps transfers the cream/jam from the hopper to the co-extrusion box.
The unit is particularly flexible as it can be fitted with up to two separate hoppers making it possible to manufacture two different filling flavours/colours in the same row.
Traditional products such as plain wire-cut items and products with inclusions consisting of chocolate chips, raisins, sultanas, nuts, almonds etc, can also be produced on the same equipment.
The unit is very simple to regulate as all movements are made by dedicated servo motors without the use of mechanical cams. A user-friendly touch-screen operator interface panel ensures flexible control of all possible adjustments to the machine. The design of this unit allows for tool-free dismantling for access and cleaning purposes.
In keeping with Imaforni's "tool-free access" design philosophy, the unit can indeed be dismantled by the operator for inspection or cleaning purposes, without the need for any special tools: everything can be done by hand, while the extremely high level of safeguards and protection systems remains unchanged.
This equipment can be supplied with a working width from 1.000 up to 1.500 mm.
All the mechanical components of the unit are housed outside the frame of the machine. This solution, which is consistent with the company's design philosophy, ensures perfect sanitation and easy cleaning of the machinery, while facilitating access for inspection and servicing.
