Cutting and portioning a piece of cake
Specialist food industry automation supplier Newtech sought the advice of Telsonic when building its latest dual robot system, designed to process tray baked product for one of the UK’s leading cake manufacturers.
The specification requirements included a fast clean cut with no smearing, accurate portion control, reduced waste at edge of tray/off cuts and low noise.
Telsonic supplied Newtech with demonstration equipment, including a 500mm wide blade, to allow trials and customer demonstrations to take place. These trials were conducted across a range of tray baked product including flapjack, malt loaf, slab cake and brownies, with and without inclusions.
The performance achieved during the trial period led Newtech to select Telsonic equipment for the application. Telsonic’s scope of supply included 20kHz 500mm long single length blades, MAG-WO20024-S generators and the aseptic SE2024-4/IP67 converter.
