Dumpling Production Equipment Helps to Increase Capacity and Standardize Products

To increase capacity and standardize products are the main issues that drive food manufacturers and restaurant owners, including this client, to switch from manual to automatic production. The dumplings served in the company's restaurant chains were made by hand in its own central kitchen. Consumers really liked the handmade dumplings, but 'sold out" was the most important issue with which the company had to deal. Moreover, the size, weight, and taste of handmade dumplings might vary from batch to batch. Using a dumpling maker can both improve capacity and achieve standardization. Therefore, he chose us as the solution provider for the automatic production of dumplings. He also wanted to serve deep-fried dumplings and steamed dumplings to satisfy customers' appetite after increasing capacity.

Food Culture

Chinese dumpling is a circular dough skin wrapped around filling with pinched pattern on the edge. The primary filling is pork with cabbage or leek, but there are many variants made with different ingredients such as beef, shrimps, chicken, fish, corn, kimchi, etc. Dumplings are usually boiled, steamed, pan-fried or deep-fried. Nowadays, some frozen dumplings are cooked before freezing so that people can even microwave the dumplings when busy.

Solution 1. Dumplings crack after freezing.

After giving machine training, going through the whole process of producing food is necessary to make sure the machine, production process, and the final products have no problem. In this case, dumplings could be produced smoothly, but there were cracks in the dumpling skin after freezing.

Our engineer listed two possible causes: water content and freezing techniques.

How to improve freezing techniques?

Under the situation that the client had no plan to purchase new freezing equipment, our engineer suggested changing workflow. After the dumplings are just made by the HLT-700XL, pack the fresh dumplings well and freeze them right away to prevent them from drying.

With the two solutions, the defective rate can be decreased from 40% to 5% and the dumplings can both be steamed and deep-fried perfectly.

Food Equipment Introduction

  • Put well-mixed stuffing in stuffing hopper.
  • Put well-kneaded dough in dough hopper.
  • Stuffing is extruded into a cylinder through stuffing pipe.
  • Dough is extruded into a tube through dough pipe.
  • While both cylindrical stuffing and dough tube are formed, stuffing is extruded into the dough tube.
  • The stuffed dough tube is formed by the rotary mold.
  • The final products are released from the mold by scraper.
  • The final products are conveyed for the sequential baking process.
Customized rotary mold

The rotary mold in the forming mold set of HLT-700XL determines the look of a product, including size, shape and weight. ANKO has a team specifically to develop rotary molds for our clients and all molds are precisely produced with a 5-axis CNC machine in our factory.

In this case, the client would like to make dumplings with a unique shape, so we provided several choices in accordance with the weight and size of his dumpling. Finally, we made him a half-moon shaped dumpling mold with patterned edge that we call it finger pattern. After the dumplings were produced by machine, for more unique look, they would make them into a ring shape by hand.

HLT-700XL

HLT-700XL Multipurpose Filling & Forming Machine is designed to produce various types of dumplings such as Chinese dumplings, Italian ravioli, Korean mandu, etc. The products weighing from 2 to 200 grams with different shapes are able to be made because the rotary mold can be customized according to individual needs. Simply by changing the forming mold set, the machine can produce different food products, which helps clients create new product lines with low costs.
