Equipment Snapshot: Haas recently released a new sugar cone baking oven. The oven can produce up to 19,400 cones per hour, and has a more precise rolling device; the oven also requires less maintenance, and features improved gas/air mixing technology.
At the oven head, batter is deposited onto the lower plates of baking plate pairs, which are mounted to a baking tong chain. The upper and lower plates close and travel through the baking chamber. After one turn, the baking plates open at the oven head and a mechanical take-off system transfers the baked wafer sheets to a rolling device where they are rolled to cones. The rolling device discharges the finished cones to a feeding conveyor that delivers the cones to the cooling zone.
