The company’s industrial muffin and cake depositors and depositing lines can be fed by its bulk intermediate hoppers.

The new detector features Safeline’s advanced coil technology and has a wide aperture that is well-suited for bulk bags, yet also can inspect any dry, wet, loose or packed bulk product. Built on the PowerPhase software platform, the detector finds even difficult-to-detect nonmagnetic stainless steel and fine wire contaminants.

T.L. Green Biscuit & Cracker, a division of Reading Bakery Systems, offers the Independence Wirecut Machine for wire-cut cookies and other low-pressure dough-forming applications. The machine uses a filler block that funnels dough from the grooved forcing rolls into the die cups mounted above the wire-cutting mechanism. At the bottom of the die, the dough pieces are sliced at speeds of up to 150 cuts per minute and dropped onto a transfer conveyor belt or solid oven baking band.
