Ten stunning features that were especially designed to help you produce as efficient as possible. The Houdijk Capper maximizes your capacity by adding production potential, thus making the Houdijk Capper the new world standard in capping.
Regular cappers require a balanced infeed to avoid empty lanes and broken or incomplete sandwiches. But imbalance occurs regularly by taking away products upstream (for quality measurements) or misbakes. Re-balancing then requires manual intervention, by adding new products to the line.
Not any longer. Houdijk offers fully automatic re-balancing. Missing products will only stop their own lane. When it is replenished, the lane will start again in synchronization with the other lanes.
The Houdijk Capper features a revolutionary, new manifold/depositor. With individually controlled squeeze nozzles. So no mechanically or pneumatically operated pistons and no mechanical adjustments. Any missing or broken base cake will be detected automatically through the Houdijk vision system and will not be deposited (the ‘half’ sandwich can be discharged by feature 6, 'Incomplete product discharge').
To keep rectangular biscuits in control for a properly side-aligned sandwich, regular cappers use narrow channels. Creating potential blockages by small crumbs. The Houdijk Capper has wider and more forgiving channels. And a re-alignment device that pushes rectangular and square base cakes sideways to their exact position. This will ensure a properly aligned sandwich.
Any capper features many mechanical movements. When properly synchronized, they create a perfect sandwich. However, the base cakes and the cream are subject to small daily (even hourly) changes. Requiring small mechanical adjustments to properly set the equipment.
The Houdijk Capper features an all-servo system, in which all important motions can be adjusted via the HMI in real-time. Right when the equipment is in production: no tools, no mess. The adjustments are intuitive and can be done by a regular operator.
Each nozzle of the Houdijk Manifold can be tuned individually to a 1/100 second (through the HMI) for a perfect deposit shape and weight. Because of its unique way of opening and closing the valve (1-500 times per minute) round, rectangular and odd-shaped deposits are possible, as well as encapsulated deposits. Right when the equipment is in production: no tools, no mess. The adjustments are intuitive and can be done by a regular operator.
At the exit of the Houdijk Capper, incomplete or broken sandwiches can be discharged automatically and individually. Based on information gained by the vision system for the no-product-no-deposit feature.
From round to rectangular, from 12 lanes to 14 lanes… Whatever the required change-over, it should be done quickly and effortlessly. Houdijk features a Poka Yoke change-over requiring no tools, no mechanical adjustments, no fine-tuning, no tweaking.
The only things required are an HMI recipe setting and lightweight change-over parts, which already have the correct and fixed settings designed into them. A change-over that can be done by an operator – no engineer or mechanic is required.
A typical change-over will take 15 minutes – no further adjustments or tweaking is necessary. A vertical start-up is essential to meet today’s efficiency requirements.
The Houdijk Capper has a completely open, hose-down design with no hidden corners or spaces. And easily removable change-parts, with designated trolley for storage.This allows for a very short cleaning time, facilitating a quick return to full production. The manifold is provided with a COP-ready trolley and controls for proper HACCP cleaning.
Low maintenance is required for the Houdijk Capper because of state-of-the-art design and first class commercial components. In the unlikely event of a malfunction, most faults can be traced through the HMI. Using commercial components ensure local availability and local support.
A closely positioned cream kitchen will make sure that the Houdijk Capper can be manned by a single kitchen/capper operator.
