Slab forming equipment for food bar manufacturing
Propack’s high-quality slab forming machines are used for food bar manufacturing, drawing in product mix and forming it into a continuous slab. The unit consists of a stainless-steel top and bottom roller with a hard chrome surface, which is able to process a wide range of textures and consistencies. Its three Teflon-coated, stainless-steel scraper blades are durable and quickly provide even and accurate cuts.
Slitters for processing food slabs into ribbons
Propack’s slitter equipment make high-quality ribbons from a food slab. Complementing the slab forming machine range, the slitter units improve product presentation with their accurate cutting design. The stainless-steel slitters also have quick changeover times for efficient delivery.
Spreaders for food ribbon processing
Propack’s spreaders are designed to efficiently take food ribbons from a slitter and spread them out to form gaps between the strands, accommodating the cutting process. Fully manufactured in easy-to-clean stainless-steel, this machine has an adjustable feed speed so it can be optimised for different processing lines. Its Orange Volta belt is made from homogenous thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), which also reduces cleaning costs and downtime.
High-quality guillotine cutting systems for food production
Propack’s traditional and pristine-cut ultrasonic guillotine systems utilise modern cutting technology to form precise and uniform shapes. The machine is servo-driven, with an accurate frequency control and pneumatic auto-tracking for belts. It also has a D-motion profile and an adjustable anvil until the knife.
