MONO’s NEW flagship confectionery depositor, the Universal 3D-X, is truly universal in its application, incorporating genuine 3D-X depositing by the use of an additional X-Axis movement.
The NEW industrial-standard Universal 3D-X features a depositing system which not only moves up and down over the moving conveyor belt, but also moves across the conveyor belt too. The combination of the conveyor movement from Left to Right, the hopper movement Up and Down essentially mean that an almost endless variety of shapes can be created with the use of a Standard Template. The traditional circular movements created with the use of a Rotary Template are now undertaken by the movement of the hopper and belt.
It is available with a single, double or triple hopper system enabling up to 3 different mixes to be deposited simultaneously to create unique multi-coloured products. The combination hopper is suitable for both hard and soft mixes and features a large set of aluminium rollers positioned above a second set of smaller gears. This new and improved 4-gear system provides the optimum pressure to drive through even the stiffest mixes with ease and accuracy. For true versatility the two lower gears can also be replaced with Particulate Gears to deposit particles like choc-chips without crushing the suspensions.
The Universal 3D-X incorporates the very latest touch screen technology ensuring designing even the most creative and demanding shape is simple and intuitive. It features Picture Programming which streamlines and simplifies the whole product design process.
Available in three sizes 400, 450 and 600 to fit the industry’s most common tray sizes 40cm, 45cm and 60cm wide respectively. The 600 machine is also available for the very first time with a Wirecut option providing excellent throughput on a much larger tray.
The Universal is capable of taking a comprehensive range of high quality templates for hard mix, soft mix and combi-mix hoppers including standard, sheeting, rotary, biscuit, staggered, wirecut, ladyfinger, injection and a NEW Iris Template for encrusting. This versatile range, when combined with the various hopper types, hopper configurations, dies and nozzles means that the Universal 3D-X provides the ultimate depositing and cutting depositor for the most discerning, high volume, confectionery businesses.
