Sandwiching machine

The Capptronic system from GEA is built on state-of-the-art technology for producing sandwich, filled and spot-deposited biscuits directly in line with the baking oven.

Eliminating the need for complex and costly stacking equipment, the Capptronic technology combines the highest performance and accuracy, with user-friendly operation and flexibility.

The Capptronic technology answers industry’s need for a complete sandwich biscuit production system that can be integrated after a GEA biscuits production line. The unit comprises a conveyor that aligns biscuits coming from the tunnel oven, and a conveyor on which the processes of overturning, depositing, and capping the rows of biscuit are carried out. Capping is carried out by Venturi effect suction cups.

Designed to allow the adjustment of all working parameters without needing to stop production, the Capptronic is fully electronic with brushless motors on all control devices, and features quick couplings to enable easy changeover for different products. The depositing assembly incorporates a manifold depositor that can be heated to deposit creams at controlled temperature, with self cleaning after each cycle.

All parts that are in contact with product are also easily removable for cleaning, while the main conveyor features a continuous washing system and can also be fully jet washed.

Advantages

  • Fully electronic operation
  • Fully washable with water jet
  • Integrated by-pass function for unfilled products
  • Continuous belt washing
  • Adjustment of working parameters with machine running
  • Easiness of change-over
  • Centralized lubrication
  • Highly reduced maintenance

 

Sanitation and safety

The components such as lateral guides, aligning rollers, dosing manifold etc. are easily and quickly removable for cleaning. The machine flexibility is also given by the possibility of easy changeover, with quick couplings, adapting it in this way to the production of several types of products. CAPPTRONIC has been designed by paying special attention to the complete respect of the hygienic-sanitary standards in force; infact it is equipped with a fully washable frame, wholly covered by stainless steel panels with seals: this allows complete machine cleaning on site. The feed conveyor is also provided with a continuous washing system for the cleaning of the surface in contact with the product, thus avoiding the use of an operator for this purpose. Much importance has also been given to the issue of safety at work by using polycarbonate protections with safety switches on all the moving parts.
