Fruit-spreading machine

May 1, 2008




Hinds-Bock’s servo-driven fruit-spreading machine dispenses and spreads delicate fruit products containing large particulates, such as cobbler and pie filling, without damaging large fruit pieces. The machine’s uniform lead-edge to trail-edge, side-to-side coverage eliminates labor typically associated with hand spreading. Its operator interface panel with servo drive allows tuning the deposit amount and speed; a positive shut-off mechanism ensures clean deposits.
