Successful introduction of the Rotoraptor at the “Bakkerijdagen (Bakery days)” | 05-03-2008

Last weekend the business introduction of the Rotoraptor at the Bakery Days was a fact.

Build on the successful formula of the dosing-machine the new Rotoraptor was presented last weekend at the “Bakery Days”

The Rotoraptor is the next step in evolution of the already proven technology of the dosing-machine. This evolvement is a result of several conversations with innovative bakers.

The Rotoraptor is compact accessible machine, which is a treat for the eyes. The machine’s silo’s are made of plastic and can easily be taken off for cleaning. Even the basic version has the ability to “Track & Trace” every step in the production process. This way you can fulfill any requirement to backtrack all used compounds. Of course the accuracy of the machine has not been changed, an accuracy of 2 gram can be achieved with the standard setting screws.

Arotech in Swalmen is marketing a small ingredient-dosing machine, called Rotoraptor. This installation is entirely developed in-house by Arotech. “In many companies the weighing and mixing the ingredients is done manually”, explains Noud Rovers from Arotech. This is a time consuming job with a high risk of inaccuracy and possible unhealthy consequences for the operator.

As of January 1st 2005 there are European laws for the traceability of food. The law states that not only the composition of every product must be known but also the individual ingredients must be tracable.
The existing machines on the market for dosing small ingredients are expensive, take up a lot of space and require a lot of maintenance. This is all history when using the Rotoraptor.

The rotoraptor dosing-machine requires limited floor space. For ten components you would require a floorspace of is 3,7 square meters. The height of the machine in this construction is then two meters.
Accuracy can be chosen freely. If required the accuracy can be set to one gram.
The Rotor raptos is available as a stand-alone concept, but is also extendible to provide a total concept for recipes.
