Injecting bakery products.

The Autarky Machine Company Limited, who has been producing for over 20 years a range of special purpose injection machines for the food industry has added to its range an automatic cake injection machine.

This machine has been designed to be used as either a unit machine or part of a fully automated system. Cakes are indexed by a twin lane walking beam system at the rate of up to 40 cakes per minute to a 4 station injection head. The walking beam system being of hygienic construction and much easier to clean than a conventional conveyor.

At the point of injection 4 heads are used to allow more time to correctly inject the product. Each head can have a plurality of needles which are fed from 2 infinitely variable volumetric pumps. The two pumps per cake are used to provide accurate and even distribution of fluid throughout the cake. A selection switch is provided to change from top injection to side injection. This combined with variable needle positions enables various decorated or tinned products to be injected correctly.

The machine has an in built hinged tank arrangement, which is lockable, to hold the material being pumped. Within the tank is a level detection system which inhibits the injection cycle when empty and informs the operator via a flashing beacon. In the event that a cake is not under the injection head the respective pumps do not operate. Thereby preventing contamination and wastage of product.

Manufacture of the machine is in stainless steel and other food quality materials. It has been designed with cleaning in mind and has its own inbuilt wash cycle. Full interlocked guarding is fitted as standard. The unit is microprocessor controlled and can be fitted with a message display and printer if required.

Autarky also manufacture hand held and semi-automatic equipment for the injection of various other products such as meat, poultry, pies etc..

With in house design and experience Autarky can produce individual machines to suit various other products.
