Equipment supplier Baker Perkins has introduced a new servo-driven version of its TruClean wirecut machine, which forms cookies and bars from soft dough.

The new wirecut mechanism, which the company said brings improved automation and flexibility to production, has a two-axis servo system. This provides “infinite” variability to the cutting and return paths and enables optimum cutting performance, even at high speeds or on difficult dough, it added.

Tailored profiles can be created for each individual product and loaded at the touch of a button, said Baker Perkins.

The remaining parts of the wirecut process (hopper, feed rolls, filler block and dies) are carried over from the previous version of the TruClean wirecut, to ensure product characteristics, high-accuracy weight control and easy cleaning are maintained.

The company added that ease of operation, cleaning and maintenance have been improved.

In September Baker Perkins created two new innovations for its Multitex4 bread moulder.
