Automated depositor
The servo rotary valve cake depositor from E.T. Oakes runs up to 90 rows per
minute and accommodates a variety of pan types including round, square, finger
and rectangle. The depositing sequence automatically starts when the operator
selects a recipe from the Allen Bradley touchscreen and a pan in position. Batter
is supplied in closed piping from the continuous mixer or pump assembly directly
to the depositing manifold eliminating the need for hoppers. For changeovers, the
cake depositor auto adjusts for new deposit rates and pan configurations.
