ANKO Team Research Problem Solving or Solution Delivery

How to make it possible to produce pliable wrappers by machine to avoid frozen wonton from breaking after cooking?

Wonton is usually cooked and served in soup so that wonton wrapper should be soft and pliable to keep a smooth taste.

Basically, HWT-400 was designed a built-in wrapper pressing unit which already delivered the solution of producing elastic wrapper. However, the client had a higher demand for wonton wrapper. ANKO engineer, firstly, tested ten recipes in order to increase gluten and evenly retain in a wrapper. He elaborately recorded the differences between ten recipes and the results to find out the best one to satisfy the client's requirement.

Secondly, considering not increasing costs, we employed the pressing device of ANKO's HLT-series machine and a wrapper pressing machine the client already had to process dough and press it into dough belt. Afterwards, the pressed dough belt would be guided to HWT-400 which would proceed to the continuous production. In the end, through the change of recipe and the additional pressing processes, the plus effects finally suit the requirements of wrapper characteristics. The final products were soft and smooth through cooking, even the frozen ones.

Food Equipment Introduction

  • Pre-press dough into dough belt with a sheeter due to the client's requirement.
  • Guide dough belt to HWT-400
  • Tong dough belt and cut it into required size (within 90-100 mm).
  • Punch wrappers into cylinder molds.
  • Extrude stuffing into wrappers.
  • Clip the top of cylindrical stuffing to pleat on wrappers and strengthen the tightness between wrapper and stuffing.
  • Push final products forward onto conveyor.

Stir flour into fluffy crumbs and then pour them and stuffing into hoppers, respectively. After that, automatic production of wonton begins from pressing wrapper, cutting, extruding stuffing to finishing products in one machine. The final products are neatly lined on the machine conveyor, which is very convenient for the client to pack and freeze, and then deliver them to restaurants or supermarkets.
