Automatic Sweet Potato Ball Production Equipment Designed to Produce Small Sweet Potato Balls
Sweet potato ball
- Sweet Potato
- Granulated Sugar
- Tapioca Flour
Sweet potato balls are a popular topping for different kinds of Taiwanese traditional dessert such as shaved ice, Chinese soy pudding (douhua), and herbal jelly. They are made of the mixture of steamed sweet potato, tapioca flour, and some sugar, then boiled and chilled into little springy and slightly chewy pieces.
Due to the prevalence of bubble tea, some beverage store owners make sweet potato balls as small as tapioca pearls so that people can enjoy the taste of sweet potato as drinking milk tea.

Solution 1. How did our engineer and food researcher solve the problem that the sweet potato balls couldn't be formed?The client visited us with a chunk of well-mixed dough. When our engineer conducted a test run of GD-18B, the sweet potato balls couldn't be formed. Our engineer and food researcher followed the SOP, trying to identify the problem step-by-step.

Consulting services on recipeThe client would like to produce different kinds of sweet potato balls including purple, yellow, and orange. Therefore, our food researcher and engineer had tested many recipes with different quantities of ingredients. We not only gave him final recipes, but also told him how to adjust the quantities of ingredients according to the conditions of dough.
Consulting services on production flowWe help our customers organize their production flow, taking into account safety, food quality, machine performance, factory layout, etc.
Food Equipment Introduction
- Pour dusting flour into flour hopper.
- Put sweet potato dough into dough hopper.
- Adjust the speed of production.
- Forming rollers press the dough into a thick dough belt
- Cutting rollers cut the sweet potato dough into strips.
- The dough strips are diced and rounded into small balls.
Custom rotary cutting rollersThe cutting rollers are different from the forming rollers, which are used to cut dough into strips and determine the product size. There are blades on the cutting rollers; the more the blades they have, the smaller the products will be. That is, the width of spaces between blades is equal to the size of products. Therefore, the cutting rollers are able to be customized, depending on the customer's product size requirements.
The design of flour dusting hoppers prevents products sticking togetherWhen we make sweet potato or taro balls at home, it is an important process to dust flour on the dough as kneading, cutting, or packing. It is also an inevitable process during the machine production. Thus, the flour dusting hoppers are designed to sprinkle the flour on the rollers and dough, which can greatly reduce the number of defectives.
GD-18B (Not available in the U.S. and Canada)The GD-18B production processes, involving dusting, pressing, cutting into strips, dicing, and rounding, are designed based on the manual production processes, in order to ensure the look, taste, and texture of the final products resemble the handmade ones. The rollers of GD-18B are made with stainless steel, rather than aluminum alloy -the material oxidizes easily and may affect the durability of a machine and food safety. GD-18B can process 25 - 180 kilogram starch dough per hour and the product size ranges from a minimum of 0.8 centimeters to a maximum of 2.0 centimeters.
How does ANKO's Automatic Cutting and Rounding Machine work to make fresh sweet potato balls, taro balls, tapioca pearls, tang yuan, etc.? At the beginning of the video, flour has been dusted on the rollers to prevent starch dough from sticking to the rollers. Then, put the starch dough into GD-18B. The machine is able to automatically press dough, cut dough into strips, dice and round small pieces into balls. The video also shows the cutting rollers that can be customized according to food size requirement. Moreover, a product slide mesh is installed at the exit to collect and sift out final products in required size.
