Title (EN) METHOD AND MACHINE FOR FORMING THREE-DIMENSIONAL FOOD PRODUCTS
(FR) PROCEDE ET MACHINE DE FORMAGE DE PRODUITS ALIMENTAIRES A TROIS DIMENSIONS
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for forming food materials into three dimensional shapes that may be made to duplicate the appearance of a variety of natural food products. The machine includes a dual rotary, matching forming cavity apparatus for producing, at continuous high speeds, food products in a variety of shapes. One embodiment of the invention employs a plurality of forming (18, 20, 22, 24) bars mounted in the dual rotary drums (12, 14) of the machine, the forming bars are easily removable and replaceable with similar bars having different product forming cavities. Cam (32, 34) operated means are associated with the drums or the forming bars for ejecting formed products from the cavities (26).
(FR) Un appareil de formage de produits alimentaires en formes tri-dimensionnelles pouvant reproduire l'apparence d'une variété de produits alimentaires naturels. La machine comprend un appareil à rotation double avec cavité de formage par adaptation pour fabriquer des produits alimentaires à formes variées à des vitesses élevées continues. Une conception de l'invention utilise plusieurs barres de formage (18, 20, 22, 24) montées dans les tambours (12, 14) à rotation double de la machine, les barres de formage pouvant être déposées et remplacées facilement par des barres similaires possédant des cavités de formage du produit différentes. Des moyens actionnés par came (32, 34) sont associés aux tambours ou aux barres de formage pour éjecter les produits formés des cavités (26).
