Using ANKO food machine to produce apple pie

Fried Apple Pie Making Machine – Machinery Design for Panamanian Company

The client has run Korean restaurants in Panama, where are viewed by local people as a good place to satisfy your taste buds and stomach. At that time, the owner wanted to serve more dishes in his restaurants and sell on other channels. To achieve the goal, his central kitchen had to supply various kinds of food and increase production capacity. Moreover, with the government's protectionist policies, he thought buying a machine would be good investment. Then, someone introduced ANKO and our HLT Series Multipurpose Filling and Forming Machine to the owner. During his visit to ANKO for machine trial testing, he realized that ANKO is reliable and able to offer customization and turnkey services. Finally, he chose ANKO as his business partner to grow with him.

Food Culture

Apple pie originated in Europe and developed into different shapes, sizes, and flavors such as caramel apple pie and French apple pie. Then, apple pie was brought to America and fused with American flavors. Since the Americas like fried food, the fast food restaurant chain changed the cooking method from baking to deep-frying, and made into a more convenient rectangular shape, making apple pie an iconic American snack.

The filling system can smoothly process filling with dices to retain food's texture

ANKO is dedicated to enhancing the quality and texture of machine-made food. To make foods with dices has been a challenge in building a food machine. The transfer from manual to automatic production should not compromise food's quality. Therefore, in order to retain the texture of apple dices, the filling screws and rotors of the HLT-700XL's filling system are designed to prevent a short burst caused by slipping and extrude dices smoother, which could make products in standard weight, keep food texture and provide consistent product quality.
