Pineapple cake is a traditional Taiwanese pastry. In 1970s, pineapple was the second-largest agricultural product in Taiwan. People used abundant pineapple to make canned pineapple, jam, preserve, and Chinese pastry. At first, pastry chefs added pineapple stuffing into Chinese bride cake. The pastry was made with lard, wrapped around a mixture of pineapple and winter melon jam which was used to reduce sour taste of pineapple.
Now, the pineapple cake is made into a cube and completely stuffed with pineapple jam. It becomes one of the most popular Taiwanese souvenirs because the aroma and taste are loved by tourists.

ANKO Team Research Problem Solving or Solution Delivery
Solution 1. Set up a production line to create a new product with what's in his farm.The client likes to serve dishes and sell food products made with the plants grew in his farm. He usually creates a new product line based upon what he grows rather than what the market needs.
Solution 2. How to create a new product line from scratch?
What equipment does he need to make pineapple cakes?The whole line for making pineapple cake includes mixers, an SD-97W Automatic Encrusting and Forming Machine, a shaping machine, a tray loading and aligning machine, a pressing machine, and ovens.
How can he produce pineapple cakes without right recipe?ANKO offers him a pineapple cake recipe with detailed instructions. The taste, texture, and other ingredients are able to be adjusted within a certain range. In this case, our engineer had adjusted the ratio of wrapper to filling as well as wrapper and filling hardness based upon the client's needs. In fact, a slight modification would affect the quantities of ingredients or machine settings. Therefore the more experienced an engineer is, the more flexible and customizable services a company could offer.
Providing the Best On-Site Operator TrainingAfter the taste, texture, and appearance of the pineapple cake had met the client's requirement, we provided an on-site training, including not only machine operation, cleaning, and maintenance, but also daily parameter setting. Parameters for all machines need to adjust every day according to the filling and wrapper conditions which are affected by weather. The adjustment is very important before every use, so we don't just give the client a set of numbers but teach the operator how to examine filling and wrapper conditions and have a corresponding setting.
Solution 3. Make the dough ball fully fill in the baking moldIn order to make pineapple cakes with perfect appearance, there are two key factors:
Food Equipment Introduction
- Put the filling into the filling hopper.
- Put the dough into the dough hopper.
- The SD-97W extrudes the dough into a tube.
- The SD-97W extrudes the filling into the dough tube.
- The filled dough tube is divided by the shutter unit and formed into balls.
- The conveyor of the SD-97W delivers the balls to the shaping machine.
- The shaping machine rolls the balls into a cylindrical shape.
- The conveyor of the aligning machine places the cylinders into the molds.
- The pressing machine presses the dough cylinders into a square shape.
The ingenious design made the automatic pineapple cake production line turn into real.Rolling, laying, and shaping - the processes before aligning stuffed cylinders in molds - are simple but important to improve the performance of production line. When the pineapple cakes are made by hand, we might not notice that we rub stuffed balls to fit them into molds. However, when switching to automatic production, R&D engineers need to consider all the details. The rolling, laying, and shaping processes are designed to make the stuffed cylinders smaller than the width of the molds and be horizontally located in the center of the molds so that the stuffed cylinders can be placed in position and pressed evenly.
Good baking molds are the key to make pineapple cakes with a perfect look.Traditionally, mold and baking pan are made together, but now the mold are separated from baking pan and made into individual molds. What are the advantages of the modular molds? First of all, clients can customize one or several sets of molds depending on the size of their baking pans or products. Second, in order to perfectly brown every surface of a pineapple cake, there are spaces between the molds in same distance. Last but not least, the small, individual molds are easier to clean than a large mold pan.
Pineapple cake production lineThe pineapple cake production line is combined with the SD-97W Automatic Encrusting and Forming Machine, shaping machine, aligning conveyor, tray loader, and pressing machine. The switch from complex manual processing of pineapple cake to automatic production line helps manufacturers reduce labor costs and time.
SD-97WSD-97W is a multi-purpose automatic encrusting and forming machine that is especially designed to make stuffed products. It is capable of connecting with other devices and machines to automate the sequential processes such as shaping, stamping, rounding, etc. To make pineapple cakes with the SD-97W, the weight and the ratio of wrapper to filling can be standardized.
How does the pineapple cake production line work?The pineapple cake production line involves forming, shaping, placing, and pressing. The SD-97W Automatic Encrusting and Forming Machine is able to form pineapple filling balls in uniform size and weight. Then, through the shaping processes, the stuffed balls can be placed correctly in the center of molds. Lastly, the pressing machine presses the molds in batches.
