Bollin Dale Engineering is supplying a complete line for production of Jaffa Cake style biscuits to a customer in Iran.
The 1.2-metre wide line, valued at £1.3m, is on its way to the factory and will be installed and commissioned by Macclesfield-based Bollin Dale. It will have an output of 750kg per hour – 18 cakes across 60 rows a minute.
The line consists of a batter preparation and aeration system, batter depositing unit, travelling oven and cooling system, jam preparation/depositing system and forced cooling and chocolate enrobing stations. All parts except the oven and enrober have been designed and manufactured in-house.
Until recently, Bollin Dale was the principal machining shop for Asser Oakes. It now produces and markets its own equipment.
