Decorating on baking trays

From manual to automated decoration

Small bakeries still produce the majority of baked products that end up in stores. Many of those products are baked on trays and have some kind of chocolate decoration.

Up till now, the only option was to apply the chocolate manually. However, producers increasingly run into the constraints of that process:

  • It is hard to find people
  • Increasing labour cost
  • Inconsistent looks
  • Large differences in weight

Increase your productivity

FoodJet chocolate depositors solve all of the above. And on top of that, you will increase your output considerably. Customers who use the FoodJet system to decorate their baking trays finished their production runs 10 times as fast as before.

Fewer people, less hassle

Many producers share one common problem: where to find people to staff their production. And particularly for decoration processes, where to find people skilled enough to apply consistent designs. A depositor always shows up for work and delivers identical designs, every day, all day.

Great designs available

You can create and store an unlimited number of designs with the FoodJet Designer Studio software. Then, if you want to change an image, you just load the file, and off you go. No mechanical changes, no tooling, no hassle. You can even mix different designs on a single tray.

Clear vision for difficult tasks

Typically products do not always come perfectly aligned on baking trays. This is one of the main reasons why the decoration process is very hard to automate.

FoodJet uses its smart vision technology to detect the position and possible rotation of each individual product. Therefore each deposit is applied right where you want it.
