AUTOMATIC ENCRUSTING MACHINE: A DREAM COME TRUE FOR FOOD ENTREPRENEURS
If you own a small or medium business of handmade savories, you have probably wondered how your life would be easier if there was some device or equipment to help you making your products. But this is no longer a fantasy: there are several models of machines in the market that can automatize the entire process, or at least facilitate it.
For that matter, the automatic encrusting machine is the most revolutionary innovation in the savories industry, once it can form and stuff several kinds of products in various shapes, sizes and quantities.
LESS PEOPLE, MORE EFFICIENCY
No more than ten years ago, the image of a food industry factory was a place packed full of dozens or hundreds of employees working in shifts to meet demands. Today, thanks to the automatic encrusting machine, it is possible to have large productions operated by lean teams in compact plants.
Besides, these machines contribute to food hygiene, once it reduces the manual contact with the final product, and standardizes shape and weight. Not to mention the increase in production, that does not depend directly on the amount of employees.
HOW AN AUTOMATIC ENCRUSTING MACHINE WORKS
An automatic encrusting machine can make savories and sweets in, basically, five different shapes: ball, croquette, drop, two tips (kibbeh shape) and pillow. The equipment was developed to work with extruded doughs, which is the basis for most savories, such as coxinha, cheese ball and croquette. It can also make cheese bread, kibbeh, churros, small pies, cookies, brigadeiro and other sweets.
As for the stuffing, from shredded chicken to ground beef, there is a full range of possibilities. You can use cheese, ground ham and sausage with small pieces of vegetables, like corn and peas, as well as chocolate, dulce de leche and jams. The only precondition is that it cannot contain water, cannot be too hard (that includes frozen ingredients) and it should have unity, which can be achieved with creams, broths and flours without compromising taste.
