ANKO Double Line Shumai Production Line – Machinery Design for Mauritian Company

The client has a central kitchen to produce and sell shumai to retailers and takeaways. The growing demand and labor costs prompted him to find an automation solution. Through his friend's introduction, he knew that ANKO is a professional food machine manufacturer. When he visited us for machine test, we used radish shreds in substitution for cassava shreds because cassava is not common in Taiwan. It's also an unprecedented attempt for us. Finally, we were glad to succeed in producing radish shumai by our shumai machine and earned recognition from the client.

Food Culture

One of iconic dishes in Cantonese dim sum culture is shumai. That is usually made of pork and wrapped up with a dough wrap, shaped into a top open cylinder and garnished with a pea or crab roe. Some people replace dough wraps with dried seaweed to make seaweed shumai. The client living in Mauritius is a Mauritian of Chinese origin. He would like to make the typical dim sum not with pork but with cassava which is easy to get in local. Unlike pork shumai, cassava shumai is non-greasy and has a taste of cassava fiber, making a refreshing change.

The design of shumai machine was based on the production of popular vegetable and meat mixture shumai. The meat fat functions as lubricant in the process.

The pusher of the shumai machine.
The secret to manufacturing shumai like handmade.
Dough for making shumai wrappers contains less water and high gluten. These dough characteristics affect the possibility of dough belt breakage. Unlike other shumai machines, ANKO's shumai machine can be modified to press different thickness of dough belt. Moreover, how the extruder works with different production rates of dough belt is also influenced by many factors. Any neglect may ruin everything, which is the distinction between machine and human. Therefore, the innovative design of sensor can detect the position of dough wrapper for flexible adjustment to imitate humanlike sensitivity and create high efficiency.
The multipurpose vegetable cutting machine can be equipped with different blades according to individual requirement. Having one machine can deliver different types of cuts, including shredding, dicing, and slicing. The length of final products is also adjustable through the customized adjustment. In this case, the machine is utilized to cut radish into 2 mm thick and 7 cm long shreds. The minimum capacity is 200 kg of vegetables which can be processed within one hour. In short, ACD-800 is an efficient and multipurpose cutting machine.
The user only has to stir the wheat flour into fluffy dough and pour dough and stuffing into hoppers before turning on the automatic double line shumai machine. One machine can complete dough pressing, cutting, stuffing extruding, and shumai forming. The finished products are lined up on conveyor for the next packing, freezing, or cooking, which benefits the client's central kitchen business. Not only radish shreds we used for test, but also chicken, fish, beef, pork, shrimp paste, fish paste, etc. are able to be extruded by the machine extruder.

ANKO Double Line Shumai Machine just requires two square meters of space. From dough pressing to finished products, users only have to pour ingredients into hoppers and pack products manually, which largely reduce labor costs. Moreover, the machine can produce 5,000-6,000 pieces per hour.
