Sauce on sandwiches

With traditional sandwich production lines, sandwich sauces such as dressing or mayonnaise are applied with single spot depositors or even by hand. Neither solution offers a cost-effective, nor a high-quality solution. FoodJet sauce depositors can deliver both, streamlining the process with precision and efficiency.

Better distribution, better taste

OK, it’s not so visible between the bread, but an even distribution would taste a lot better. You do not want to take a bite full of sauce. Every part of the sandwich should hold an equal amount of sauce.

The FoodJet depositing head jets small drops of sauce, evenly spreading them over the entire surface of the product. If the sandwiches are all the same size, you can design the appropriate pattern yourself using the FoodJet Design Studio software.

If the size and shape can vary, the FoodJet free form pattern generator software will do the job for you.

Wide range of sauces

Does your sandwich production line have small batch sizes and short production runs? Do you change sauces frequently? We can offer solutions that will have you change materials quickly. This will reduce your downtime considerably.

More than one flavor?

Consumers will also love the multiple flavors of different sauces on one sandwich, when deposited as mixed patterns. You can easily design how the various sauces should be applied on the sandwich. You can even change the layout without a mechanical change to the system.

Speed is no longer a bottle neck

Need higher throughput with higher accuracy? The sauce depositor will no longer be your bottle neck. You can increase the conveyor speed without losing accuracy. Your weights will be spot-on!
