Food Process Automation, Grand Rapids, MI, helps bakers add value to their products by putting finishing marks on cookies. In a recent application, the company was asked to design an embossing machine that would duplicate the fork prints commonly put into a peanut butter cookie prior to baking them at home.
Burford Corp., Maysville, OK, offers a variety of different water splitters that can either make eye-catching decorative patterns or simplify consumption. The PS-2 pattern splitter can produce a variety of angled splits to make products stand out. For a more utilitarian offering, its CS-1 can split hoagie and dinner rolls as well as hot dog buns and more.
And for bakeries that require both, Burford offers a servo-driven pattern/cross-splitter that combines both of these processes into a single unit without increasing the overall footprint.
