Apple Food Systems have forged themselves an enviable reputation for the supply of high quality production equipment for the production of Muffins, Bar Cakes/Twinkies or Cup Cakes.
Every aspect of the production of Muffins can be catered for with the considerable range of equipment available from Apple Food Systems. The MR150 Series Depositing Unit is particularly adaptable at Depositing every type of Batter, with or without the inclusion of cherries, blueberries & currants etc.
The MR150 Series Depositing Unit can be supplied as a free standing, individual machine for manual operation, i.e. the operator would present the baking trays to the depositor and initiate each deposit by means of a foot pedal, or the machine can be incorporated into an automated production line, also designed and manufactured by Apple Food Systems.
All types of smooth free flowing fillings can be handled, including, aerated cream fillings, chocolate sauces, jams, custards and syrups When incorporated into an automated production line the single machine can be mounted at close proximity centres (minimum 50mm) upon a common support frame with outlet nozzles positioned to suit the configuration of the baking tray.
For the more dedicated production lines, the machine is offered in a common drive arrangement with the centres of the outlets as close as 50mm. Electronic menu selection for varying products to be deposited is available as standard. Both options of Depositing Unit offer the user extremely accurate depositing with targets of +/- 0.5 grams being easily achieved.
If batter is to be deposited directly into baking trays, Apple Food Systems offer release agent spray systems to suit all production capacities, manual or automatic. If paper cases are to be filled Apple Food Systems can offer paper cup dispensers for the automated processes.
For post bake filling or topping of muffins, Apple have a range of injection and depositing equipment to suit every need. Whether you require Top Injection, Top Decoration, Side Injection or even injection from beneath, Apple have it all. The range of equipment offered is designed and manufactured to the same high standards as the proven range of Depositors produced by Apple Food Systems.
Apple Food System’s latest innovation is the fully automated doughnut injection system.
Designed to accurately fill up to 25,000 doughnuts per hour, this equipment gives the customer improved efficiency and product quality control.
Each lane is individually controlled to detect doughnuts thereby giving a no doughnut/no fill signal. Positive detection results in an accurate injection of custard, chocolate sauce, jam or jelly.
Weights can be calibrated in a range from 1 to 30 grams with accuracy normally better than +/- 0.5 gram dependant on viscosity. Jam supply to the equipment is via a pressurised manifold with sensors to indicate pressure and temperature of the product being injected, together with the usage.
Various levels of code protected access allow for programming changes to be made by authorised engineers only. User friendly operator panel allows only the basic functions of recipe choice and normal production control. Higher security levels allow engineers to make parameter changes.
As a fully automated system reduced staffing levels keep labour cost per unit to a minimum.
Accuracy of injection volume reduces raw material usage giving accurate cost control.
The current system uses approximately 500 Kg of filling per hour.

What we did
Our client is one of the largest frozen ready meals producers in the US, making two million meals every day at three manufacturing facilities.
The firm contacted Apple when it wanted to replace one of its depositing machines which was being used to apply gravy and sauces to ready meal trays and was losing significant amounts through lack of accuracy.
