Food Former Adapts Quickly To Changing Production Requirements

Dec. 18, 2012
NuTEC Manufacturing's forming machine is a versatile piece of equipment that can be used to portion beef, pork, poultry, fish, veal, lamb, cheese and vegetables.
NuTEC Manufacturing's 720 all hydraulic, microprocessor controlled, multi-outlet forming machine adapts to changing production requirements with some minor tooling changes.  The 720 Food Former combines accurate weight control, minimum leakage, and quick changeovers with mobility.  A vane pump feed system uses a rotating spiral to gently move product to the rotor. According to the manufacturer, processors can run up to 3600 patties per hour with the 1-hole mold.  When a HOT order for 4 oz. patties on 4 ¾-inch paper comes in, production crews change the 720 to a 2-hole set-up with 2-across on 4 ¾-inch paper.  Processors can then run up to 7,200 patties per hour with the 2-hole set-up.
