Har Gow (Shrimp Dumpling)
ANKO Team Research Problem Solving or Solution Delivery
Solution 1. IoT System Installation to provide Comprehensive Regular Maintenance Alerts
In this case, ANKO's client utilized the HLT-700XL Multipurpose Filling And Forming Machine to produce shrimp dumplings 3 days a week, running each production for 6 hours. Issues such as uneven molding and deformity of the finished products were frequent. Upon communication with ANKO, a determination was made that the problem stemmed from the prolonged use of molds without regular maintenance. The Teflon coating had outlived its useful cycle, causing sticking and instability during production. ANKO made a service call to the client's factory, replacing the old molds with ones solving the issue. The client was informed about the detriments of Teflon peeling and the importance of regularly scheduled maintenance.
When ANKO delivers machines to customers, a comprehensive user manual detailing maintenance schedules and steps is provided. Moreover, IoT (Internet of Things) technology has been implemented into the machine, which uses vibration sensors to monitor core component usage. When maintenance is required, alerts are automatically displayed, allowing clients to schedule inspections, make advanced preparations, and develop a routine of regular machine maintenance. This proactive approach extends the machine's lifespan and enhances production through efficient operations.

After installing IoT system to the machine, it will automatically detect the parts that need maintenance or replacement
Solution 2. Innovative Recipe Research: Developing Exceptional New Products
After achieving efficient Har Gow production, ANKO proceeded to assist a client in developing a new gluten-free Har Gow using natural ingredients. During the initial production phase, one side of the Har Gow wrapper turned out thinner and broke easily. ANKO's engineers attempted various parameter setting adjustments, but this was not the cause of the issue. After further discussions with the client regarding their Har Gow recipe, inventory storage, specific location of its ingredients, and production process, ANKO found the real source of the problem… (Contact ANKO immediately for more detailed information.)
With ANKO's assistance, this client successfully produced two gluten-free Har Gow and one plant-based Dumpling. The products were perfectly formed, and the client was very pleased with the texture and the taste of the Dumplings.

Food Equipment Introduction
- Load the dough hopper with premade dough
- Place filling ingredients into the filling hopper
- Enter and adjust parameter settings, then start the production
- The machine automatically forms Har Gow
Unique Dough System Design for All Types of Dough
ANKO’s HLT-700XL Multipurpose Filling And Forming Machine is equipped with an innovative dough system. It is developed to process various types of dough efficiently. After placing the dough into the hopper, the machine utilizes an Auxiliary Screw to push the dough downwards. The design of the blades in the Dough Screw has enough space to allow different types of dough. The dough enters a unique mechanism to be shaped into a Dough Pipe and extruded. This prevents the dough from spinning inside the machine. This dough system has been tested and is suitable for processing most wheat flour dough, starchy dough, and gluten-free dough to make a wide variety of stuffed pastries, dumplings, and more.

- Food Culture
Har Gow (Shrimp dumpling) is an iconic Chinese Dim Sum that has gained immense popularity worldwide. They are commonly found in Chinese and Hong Kong-style restaurants throughout Asia and regions such as the United States, Canada, and Australia. Har Gow is made with an exquisite appearance, delicious shrimp filling, and dipping sauces compliment the entire flavor experience. According to market reports, the global Chinese Dim Sum market is expected to reach $50.5 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate of 4.21%. Har Gow is among the most popular Dim Sum items and is frequently offered at restaurants and tea houses. Some businesses have introduced innovative and limited-edition flavors, using various natural ingredients to create colorful wrappers and fill the Har Gow with shrimp mixed with oregano, tangerine peel, or fresh dill. Unique ingredients such as black truffles can also be added to entice consumers.
Additionally, Har Gow is now available in supermarkets, and they can be easily ordered online and delivered via platforms, allowing people to enjoy Har Gow conveniently at their homes. With the rise of vegetarian and plant-based dietary trends, some businesses introduced meatless Har Gow to capitalize on the vegetarian market opportunities. In the future, consumers can expect to see more vegetarian or plant-based Har Gow alternatives on the market.
