The Thomas L. Green Rotary Cutting Station accurately and continuously cuts discrete product shapes out of a single dough sheet. An integrated conveyor system moves product through - and is pressured against - a rotating die assembly. Operators can adjust the pressure on the dough sheet during operation to ensure a thorough cut and consistent piece production.
Rotary Cutting Stations may be designed with two die rolls in series with one another. These can be used in the same production run for complex shape adjustment or they may be used independently for different products on the same line.
A scrap removal system may be mounted on the discharge end of the machine. Edge and web scrap dough are removed and discharged from the machine and be re-routed to the dough handling system for reuse.
Both the gap between the conveyor and die roll and the pressure exerted on the conveyor belt are adjustable. Dough sheet thickness is typically between .89mm (.035") and 1.65mm (.065") prior to cutting, but thicker sheets may be accommodated.
