Moulding Machine/ Pressure Board & Hander Up
In Bread Manufacturing
HANDER UP OR DOUGH ROUNDER
One of the basic equipments in bread manufacturing which gives spherical shape to
the dough which has irregular shape coming out of divider . Rounder Up has Conical
surface where dough pieces travels from bottom and exits from top to inter provers.
This shape spherical dough pieces helps in getting final shape at final prover at
panning . Hander up circumferencial speed is matched with dividers out put and inter
provers trays .Dough piece travels into metallic guides which are attached to Hander Up
Hander Up has blower to dry up wet dough so as to improve its movement along the
curvelinear path .
Drive through motor and gear box .It is also referred as dough rounder
Dough piece which are spherical in shapes travels to Bread Moulding machines from
Interprover . Dough pieces are fed into moulder from top after which these dough pieces
are flattened with help of sets of rollers operating in moulders . These moulders
are driven through chain sprocket drive . Speed s are set in ascending orders for sets of
roller which pushes dough piece forward to next set of rollers .Normally three set rollers
are found in moulding machine.
Pressure boards caould either independent unit with conveyor or can pe part with bread
moulding machine as shown in above pic. Pressure board is laminated board which
transform flattened dough piece into cylindrical shape as flattened rolls up due to to
resistance . Pressure board could be lowered or moved up as per requirement through
tightening screws . These cylindrical shaped dough pieces could be easily twisted and
panned during final proving and to give better texture during baking
