GRAND RAPIDS, MICH., Sept. 14, 2021—Egan Food Technologies, a confectionery and baking process equipment manufacturer and service provider, will be featuring at Pack Expo its newest automated bar forming equipment with an innovative "two-lane" design.
Bar markers can automate easily with the SlabForm DUO, which removes the need for slitting and spreading mechanisms to create individual bars. Instead, dough is hand-fed onto two conveyor lanes, followed by 2-3 compression rollers that form the dough into bar-length moving slabs. A guillotine cuts the bars to a precise width, leaving them separated and ready for further cooling and packaging."
“The snack bar category continues to trend in our industry,” says Mike Sherd, Egan Food Technologies managing partner. “The SlabForm DUO offers an innovative, flexible solution with options and upgrades customized to the needs of growing bar makers.”
The SlabForm DUO manufacturers up to 100 bars/minute, based on a standard 3.5"x1.25" bar size, and was engineered with the following features:
Infeed "lanes" with custom-fit pressing rollers and adjustable-width dividers.
A stainless steel frame for a more sanitary design.
Automatic tracking and quick-release conveyor belts.
Optional ultrasonic bar cutter, cooling tunnel and pre-feeder.
A single-point, touchscreen HMI control panel capable of storing product recipes.
Remote tech support from Egan Food Technologies via secure internet connection directly to the HMI control panel.
Like all Egan Food Technologies equipment, the SlabForm DUO is manufactured and serviced in the U.S.A., and can be customized to meet individual food processing needs. In-person and virtual product testing is available at our headquarters.
Attendees at Pack Expo Las Vegas can learn more about the SlabForm DUO at the Egan Food Technologies Booth SU-7100, Sept. 27-29. Download additional information in the brochure below.
