Production line: Cream Cakes
Building and cutting cream cakes efficiently in large volumes.

This custom production line was developed to transport, horizontally cut, build, soak, crumb coat, decorate and vertically cut cream cakes.

The cake layers are lined up head to tail. Then, the cake is cut into layers with the horizontal cutting machine. The fly-over ensures that the layers are separated.
Under the fly-over, there is a manifold that applies (whipped) cream to the bottom cake layer. When the top cake layer is transported off the fly-over, it is placed on top of the (whipped) cream-covered cake. Then, the cake layers are lightly compressed to create the proper density. Then, the soaking, crumb coating and decorating process starts.
After decorating, the cake layers are transported to the ultrasonic cutting robot. There, they are cut on the fly. That means that transport continues as they are cut. Those slices can be straight or triangular.
With the ultrasonic cutting technique, we can make very clean, straight and sharp cuts in the cake.

This production line is centrally operated on the ultrasonic cutting robot’s HMI screen. All machines can be moved and flexibly used for other products as well.
Wireless communication ensures a safe environment. That means this line has no disturbance-sensitive connectors.
This production line was designed from a high hygienic perspective and meets the strictest standards for food safety and hygiene. Various functionalities have been added to ensure that the production line can be efficiently cleaned and maintained.
