The plant consists of a continuously moving mould circuit, the moulds being located on two continuous matched chains. A depositing head is mounted over the mould circuit and reciprocates to maintain registration with the mould cavities during each depositing stroke. The depositing mechanism consists of a series of volumetric pumps operating submerged in a hopper of cooked syrup. Each piston can be individually adjusted for weight control when the machine is stationery, and the total deposited weight of all the pistons together can be adjusted whilst the machine is operating.
The moulds would than travel through an integral cooling tunnel (cooling tunnel has been removed and is not included with this line) after the syrup has been deposited into the moulds. When the sweets have solidified they are ejected on to a discharge conveyor in a random manner.
NOTE NOT AVAILALE: The cooling tunnel and kitchen is no longer available and not included with this lisitng. Any pictures of the cooling section is because they were taken, prior to being removed from service. Also, there are no chains or molds left with the depositer.
The depositing bridge and hopper can be operated in two modes:
• For the production of solid hard confectionery, and
• For production of solid striped hard confectionery.
In the main, it is constructed of painted mild steel with polyurethane skinned exterior covers. Its operation is controlled from a free-standing electrical control panel situated close to the machine.
The Depositor deposits the cooked syrup into individual moulds which are then passed through a refrigerated cooling tunnel (not included) to solidify the syrup. After cooling, the individual candies are automatically de-moulded to give final units of product which can then be wrapped or processed further.
The Depositor consists of the following:
• A moving Depositor Head comprising a Bridge and Hopper Assembly.
There are two depositing hopper sets, one for solids only and the other for striped product. In addition, a 2.0 metre extension section is provided for later retrofit of a three compartment head arrangement.
A covered insulated mould circuit with refrigeration evaporation coil.
• Air circulation fans.
• An automatic ejection device onto a discharge conveyor.
Bridge and Hopper Assembly
The Bridge Assembly, known as the head, houses the two vertical pump axes, with their respective servo drive motors, and the bridge traverse servo drive motor. The three servo drive motors have built-in planetary gearboxes and are controlled by a 1394 Turbo Computer System. Timing belts are used to drive each axis.
After receiving the measured deposits, the moulds travel the length of a cooling tunnel (not included) and return to the ejection point.
The Depositer is currently installed and the Cooling Tunnel is removed and not available with this listing
