Sollcofill® Moulding Systems
Sollcofill® is the name of the comprehensive range of depositing machines available from SOLLICH. A popular application is for depositing fatty and sugar masses in or on biscuit and wafer bases. The Sollcofill® plant illustrated on the left comprises the automatic biscuit aligning device and the double-row depositing plant, followed by a vibrating station and an automatic belt washing plant.
Sollcofill® offers a multitude of value added features to biscuit and baked products. This most avant-garde servo driven depositing and piping technology allows you to fill almost any baked product with fillings such as caramel, fondant, praline paste, jelly, milk and yogurt creams, chocolate etc., which have suitable flow characteristics. Further options are a laterally wheel-away depositing machine or the extension with a Sollcocap® sandwiching machine.
Biscuits or wafers can be fed into the plant semi-automatically via magazine depositors or direct from the oven. An automatic row alignment device ensures the products are fed accurately into the depositing machine. If desired, depositing can be carried out using two colours simultaneously (‘one shot’ technology), or a sprinkling device can follow the moulding process.
Additional interesting possibilities are offered by combining the Sollcofill® moulding plant with our automatic nut depositor.
The nut depositor can place whole hazelnuts or macadamia nuts in position in groups of 1 to 4 or alternatively it can dispense chopped nuts by volume.
The moulding machine dispenses liquid nut creme, chocolate or caramel on the pastry or directly onto the cooling belt to provide an adhesive base for the nuts.
Another popular use of Sollcofill® plants is to manufacture the caramel nut clusters so popular in North America. The Sollcofill® depositing plant deposits measured amounts of hot caramel onto a continuously running cooling belt, followed by the nut depositor which dispenses a measured volume of nuts and then a special “retro-moulder” which gives the item its final shape. The nut depositor is also suitable for depositing or inclusion of cherries, dragees, crisped rice or raisins.
The all-purpose Sollcofill® can be used e.g. for filling biscuits, cakes and wafer products. It makes the ideal sandwich former with auxiliary equipment.
Capacity: 35-40 rows of sandwiches/min. by means of a vacuum turnover station after depositing and with two vacuum turnover stations up to 70-80 sandwich rows/min.
