Who is for colorful French macarons?

Macaron, not to be confused with American macaroon, is a sweet meringue-based confection made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food coloring.

The result is not just that color flavors our expectations: It changes how we taste the food. But we have to admit, their colors are so adorable.

French macarons

Did someone mention colors? Here is Procys' innovation

Procys provides a printing system to integrate on your production line, which allows printing on products in monochrome or bicolor, with natural or synthetic food inks. Currently, product customization is very trendy but the ability to carry it out industrially is innovative. Our systems allow changing the image, the text, or the production instantaneously without any mechanical tooling (controlled exclusively by software).

Procys offers two applications: 

  • A 1 to 4 lanes system, which can be moved on several lines
  • A 5 lanes and more system, which is a fixed system, placed before or after the oven.

Procys scalable system

Add diff­erentiation through food printing. There are many applications possible, including customization for direct-to-consumer advertising or to deliver a message, to highlight the brand name or simply for fun, etc.

Procys makes possible the customization of your products with digital printing.

Procys provides a printer able to customize your products with an innovative industrial device. The system can print with one or two colors and works with natural food inks (for example, brown is based on caramel or coffee and magenta is based on red beetroot) or synthetic food inks.

Back to Macarons and its production at Procys

Even though they are so tasty and photogenic, they are usually not very easy to make.

Procys has a solution for even that!

Procys provides an in-line sandwiching machine with modules specifically suited for macarons. For example, systems can store a range of filling items, including buttercream, ganache, caramel, jam, fruit, etc, given the broad range of flavors available.

Control systems: from the oven's exit to feeding into packaging machines with cooling conveyors, buffer systems, transfer and product mix, and loading in blisters, Procys will handle the output flow. Procys will provide advice and help for part of all your line.

What exactly can Procys help you with: Concrete steps:

  • Handling
  • Buffer systems
  • •Sandwiching machines (macarons and other products)
  • Processing
  • Packaging
  • Online printing with food ink (innovation)

Procys offers the complete environment:

  • Lane multiplication / reduction
  • Merging / diverging,
  • Sandwiching product production
  • Distribution / transfer / tilting
  • Etc

Handling: Conveying systems

From fundamental cooling transports to appropriation and ordering applications, Procys offers arrangements including belt conveyors and bends, slat or chain conveyors, support or chain transports for plates or shape.

Organization of products

When products become misaligned or blocked, Procys can realign and rearrange them into rows. Their frameworks can deal with up to 300 products / minute. On the off chance that products are now positioned in paths, Procys can re-arrange them into lines without contact between them by utilizing singular belts.

They are likewise dealing with specific situation of every product, on account of photocells. Likewise, they have a framework for controlling and deciding the essential revisions for changing the speed of each belt to adjust the products.

Conveying system Procys

Stacking systems

To feed machines such as traditional sandwiching or packaging machines, it is necessary to stack the biscuits and cookies. Usually, the biscuits and cookies are arriving flat on a full belt and are canalized between guides via a channeling board before being stacked.

How can Procys help?                                       

You don't know which solution is for you? This company can help you define the most appropriate and suited solution for your production line because they make the best solution for your personalized product and a specific cookie: size, shape, capacity, and application.

The penny stacker offers faster rates and is generally more appropriate when there are format changeovers. The rotary stacker allows working with independent lanes.

With this system, biscuits/cookies are placed more vertically. Procys can also provide a mobile stacking system with the possibility of accumulation.

Continuing process with merging / diverging

Lane reduction: Combining two lanes into a single line without collisions

Lane multiplication: Distributing products from a single lane to multiple lanes

Row distribution

Distribution to packing equipment of product lines

According to specifications, rows are distributed. If after the last distributor, products are not moved, then they can be automatically recycled.

Flows from 10 to 50 rows per minute are treated in Procys systems.

System turning / Indexing

Systems that are available at Procys can organize random lanes of products that assign accurate positions and load the packaging machine chain, for example. In this way, the company can arrange a constant sell. Products without interaction are treated by this form of device.

Products can be classified by 2, 3, 4, or 5 based on specifications and recipes (to obtain several products in a single package). Depending on the scale, fragility, and other variables, up to 600 products can be indexed per minute.

Leaving the oven: It is not the end of the process!

Demoulding

If products leave the oven, in cups or lying down directly on the belt, Procys's equipment can process slowly and precisely: going into the row by the row or directly pan by pan. Depending on the product and its fragility, various types of demoulding devices are available, either with aspiration or with claws.

Procys buffer systems

U-shape buffer: An accumulator manages flows between two machines

For example, it enables the operation of a production unit to be segregated from the area of packaging. The processing machine will continue to work with the same ability even though the packaging machine stops. To absorb the stored goods, the packaging machines then works a little higher.

Depending on their client requirements and line layout, Procys will provide various types of buffers. The most important thing is to ensure independent product flow between two devices, while other technologies allow optimization of the height or length of space and reorganize the products in the same process...

How does it work?

The accumulator holds products flat in the belt and can also minimize output gaps. A FIFO (First In First Out) method is used. 

The following system consists of 2 specially built conveyors and a 180° bending on a mobile carriage with a brushless engine. Depending on the pitch (minimum/maximum location of the 180° bend), the storage capacity is provided by the additional transfer duration between the shortest and largest journey.

Products except the belt have no touch. The buffer is appropriate without change parts for any product sizes. A photocell detects production gaps and stops the infeed belt until the next product row arrives, to optimize the buffer capacity.

Procys buffer systems

Procys processing

Dressing dough before the oven, dosing toppings on products or in molds, but also in-line with a more sandwiching capper for biscuits/cookies and macarons or fillings for pastries, Procys provides an answer to your needs.

  • Dosing system
  • Dough depositor
  • Capper sandwiching machine
  • Filling injecting machine

Dosing system

Dosing systems have made manufacturing biscuits, macarons, and pastries so much easier. Sometimes it is difficult to estimate and determine the exact amount to ensure the same shaped products.

There are many types of equipment on the market today depending on what product you need. Dosing of fillings on or in products. Different applications are available: dosing of cream, jam, caramel, or marshmallow on a tartlet, dosing of sauce, fruit compote, yogurt, etc. in pots.

Procys offers a complete range of machines tailored for your application in terms of filling and capacity and will discuss with you the best options for your production needs. This company is specialized in dosing and sandwiching for macarons, but also any other sandwiched products.

Prepare, then bake! Dough depositors

We don't even have to point out the fact that it takes a good biscuit - dough first. Biscuit dough preparation can be a real art and long process even though it is very simple, there are numerous ways and little tips and tricks on how to make your dough perfect. In large manufactories for this, there is a dough depositor and Procys provides you with the highest quality.

Dosing depositors in cavities of molds or directly on the oven belt are offered by Procys. The capacity of sponge cakes, macarons, cookies, boudoirs, pastries, madeleines, cakes, and muffins, etc.
