Food former

November 1, 2010




The NuTEC 720 all-hydraulic, microprocessor-controlled, multi-outlet forming machine adapts to changing production requirements with simple tooling changes. The 1-hole mold allows running 8-oz. patties on 5 1/2-in. paper at a rate up to 3,900 patties/hr.; up to 7,800 4-oz. patties on 4 3/4-in. paper can be run per hour with the 2-hole mold. A vane pump feed system uses a rotating spiral to gently move product to the rotor, eliminating overworking, bridging and backflow. The food former can be used to portion beef, pork, poultry, fish, veal, lamb, cheese and vegetables.
