Fruit spreading machine

January 6, 2004




The servo driven fruit spreading machine from Hinds-Bock dispenses and spreads delicate fruit products containing large particulates such as cobbler and pie filling without damaging the large fruit pieces. The company says the unit provides uniform lead-edge to trail-edge, side-to-side coverage without plugging or bridging, which eliminates the labor typically associated with hand spreading. An interface panel allows the operator to tune the deposit amount and speed.
