Additionally, Franz Haas also offers a baking plate carrier system to allow bakers to easily change out the plates.

Making a smooth exit
Product removal is a critical factor in any waffle or
wafer production, but it becomes even more important for specialty formulas and designs that can often
be quite delicate.
"For these kinds of products, we offer a vacuum
system or needle take-off system that ensures gentle removal from the cavity," Mr. Lamprecht said.
Additionally, Haas plates are constructed with a special material that prevents sticking; this also helps
prevent double deposits caused by failed release.
Tromp Group offers a variety of depanners, including needle, vacuum, continuous, pick-and-place and
others, that are designed for specific product types.
"We also aid product release by seasoning our plates
in a way that provides a protective layer on the plate,"

ment does not require needles for product removal,
but the griddles come with an integrated plate oiling
system. For typical waffle and wafer production, bakers usually oil the plates at startup, and it could go for
a week without another application. But with some of
the more difficult formulas, the baker might have to
oil at intervals, such as every few hours, and the TSA
oiling system is fully programmable.
"Once bakers learn their formulas and what they
need as far as release oil, they can program it into our
machine, and the oiling sequence will be automatic
whenever they run the product," Mr. Niemczyk said.
