The 720 all-hydraulic, microprocessor-controlled, multi-outlet forming machine now offers greater versatility. This machine easily adapts to changing production requirements with some simple tooling changes. This means meat processors have more choices. For example, when a production schedule calls for running 8 oz. patties on 5 1/2" paper, a set-up with a 1-hole mold is perfect. Processors can run up to 3,600 patties per hour with the 1-hole mold. When an order for 4 oz. patties on 4 3/4" paper comes in, production crews simply change the machine to a 2-hole set-up with 2-across on 4 3/4" paper. Processors can then run up to 7,200 patties per hour with the 2-hole set-up. The system is reliable and efficient, combining accurate weight control, minimum leakage and quick changeovers with mobility. A unique vane pump feed system uses a rotating spiral to gently move product to the rotor, eliminating overworking, bridging and backflow.
