Depositor manufacturers have been kept on their toes in recent years with trends and baking innovations resulting in a push for more advanced, precise machines.
The growing popularity of individual-size products, smaller portions and a renewed enthusiasm for healthful ingredients had led to a host of depositor developments with bakers looking for more flexible, yet accurate, machines. Speed remains as important as ever with operators looking for production speeds of up to 80 strokes per minute. Additionally, a focus on quick start up and user-friendly units has resulted in more widespread use of PLC controls offering centralized, simple operation and even multilingual programming.
As fresh, new bakery products emerge, so too do more sophisticated and ingenious depositor attachments and options. Teflon-coated hoppers and agitators, heated hoppers and rotating nozzles are just a few of the advancements.
