Solution 2. 14g Shumai Processing Machinery

Based on the client's requirement, shumai wrapper has to be very thin and shumai has to be light. The thickness of wrapping skin would be 0.3~0.5mm and each shumai would weigh 14 grams. Because this weight is abnormal, compared to the others, ANKO's engineering team needed to customize the equipment. In the end, whole shumai processing equipment was specially designed to meet their needs.

Solution 3. Labor Cost Reduction

The owner of the restaurant would like to reduce labor cost and transfer some staff to other food production lines. Thus, automatic shumai making machine was designed to solve labor cost issues. Additionally, two-line shumai making machine was custom-made to increase production capability rather than a single line.
