(EN) VERSATILE ENHANCED PRODUCTION LINE FOR PREPARING AND PACKAGING FOOD PRODUCTS
(FR) LIGNE DE PRODUCTION POLYVALENTE AMÉLIORÉE POUR LA PRÉPARATION ET L'EMBALLAGE DE PRODUITS ALIMENTAIRES
Abstract
(EN)
A method and device for manufacturing a viscous or semisolid product. The device includes a versatile product holding tray for manufacturing or forming the product. This tray is a polygonal member that includes a top surface for receiving the liquid or semisolid product, and a plurality of sides wherein at least one side includes a registration recess that is configured and dimensioned to receive at least a portion of a retaining bar of an endless conveyor to facilitate positioning of the tray upon the conveyor so that the retaining bar advances the tray during manufacture of the product. The device also includes an endless conveyor that includes a plurality of spaced tray retainer bars thereon for holding and advancing the tray to one or more product forming stations for forming the product on the trays.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un procédé et un dispositif destinés à fabriquer un produit visqueux ou semi-solide. Le dispositif comprend un plateau support de produit polyvalent destiné à fabriquer ou façonner le produit. Ce plateau est un élément polygonal qui comprend une surface supérieure pour recevoir le produit liquide ou semi-solide, et une pluralité de côtés, dans lequel au moins un côté comprend un creux d'enregistrement qui est configuré et dimensionné pour recevoir au moins une partie d'une tige de retenue d'un transporteur sans fin afin de faciliter le positionnement du plateau sur le transporteur de sorte que la tige de retenue fait avancer le plateau pendant la fabrication du produit. Le dispositif comprend aussi un transporteur sans fin qui comprend une pluralité de tiges de retenue de plateaux espacées sur celui-ci afin de maintenir et faire avancer le plateau vers une ou plusieurs stations de façonnage de produit pour façonner le produit sur les plateaux.
