Moulders and cutters are the base for any biscuit industry . Plant design is based on output
from these moulders and cutters .Different kind of shapes and sizes can be generated
through cups and dies . Basic material for moulder or cutters is gunmetal with anti-sticking
plastic inserted on to the cups .
Plant output is calculated= no of cups in row x no of columns x rpm
One piece roller: Moulder or cutter has one solid roller on which dies or cups are
fitted.Moulder is fixed to the line with help of flanges at end .
Rings type roller : Rings are fitted on roller instead of one complete roller .This helps in
changing damaged section with a new ring.Depending on rollers length the rings are put
into moulder .
Engraved roller : Instead of dies or cups biscuit pattern is engraved in moulder or cutter.The
disadvantage of this moulder is that we have to change complete set of moulder .

hoist OR Hydraulic cranes .Size could vary from length 0.8 , 1.0 , 1.2 , 1.5 meters to dia 8" ,
10" , 12" .
Rubber rollers or pressure rollers: These are roller which are placed beneath the moulders of
cutters for providing base to cut or to release dough on web .Rubber rollers can be re
rubberised to maintain the hardness as with time we would find that it has become very hard
.The ideal hardness of rubber rollers is between 70 -80 shores .
Forcing rollersor Feed Rollers :These rollers are provided for moulding varieties where it
forces dough into
moulders cups or dies .These are heavy and solid rollers.
