Description of the machine
The ASM 3U Shirring Machine has been designed for automatic continuous shirring of the all kinds of artificial sausage casings using a radial shirring head as well as for netting and clipping of shirred casings into shirred sticks. The machine can be adapted for processing of casings from diameter 35 up to 120 mm like a standard. Accessory equipment is available for outside moistening and oiling of the casings. The shirring process is completely continuous. Control of the machine operation is limited to replacement of disks with casings and collecting of shirred sticks. The shirring process is powered by a set of electrical and pneumatic elements (SMC).
The disk with casing is fixed on the unwinding part with a detector which stops the machine when the whole length of casing on the disk has been unwind off. The band of the casing is guided through metering rollers into a vacuum chamber and onto an inlet mandrel where, due to vacuum, it is inflated and transferred to the shirring head. Shirred casing is advanced onto one of three mandrels where a cutting mechanism cuts it off as soon as the preset length has been reached. In step-by-step turning of a revolver head with mandrels the casing is relocated to the pressing mechanism, where it is pressed together and then is slid over to the netting and clipping mechanism. Finished shirred sticks are collected on a discharge desk.
In case of any failure the machine is automatically stopped and a programmable PLC automatic (LENZE) indicates the faulty element. The machine is fully--equipped, with clipping machine, with netting equipment and with the universal adjustable rotation shirring head (radial blades system).
- The universal adjustable rotation shirring head
- The continuous process of shirring
- The wide range of processed casing diameters
- The very low energy consumption
- The low noise level
- The space-sawing design
- The simple operation, without any hand-work with packing and on a clipper
- The machine can be adapted for round casings as well!
