The alco AFM forming machine



The alco AFM forming machine is used for forming and weight-accurate portioning of different products by a moulding plate system. The moulding plates can be designed individually. In addition to classic shapes such as that of hamburger patties up to 3-D shapes such as surimi or chicken drumsticks can be formed. The high-pressure forming machine is suited to form materials of different degrees of viscosity. The forming material is fed into the filling channel via augers located in the hopper. The product is transferred gently to the moulding plate via the specially developed filling channel system and from there it is pushed out of the form onto the synchronised belt system.

For your application we offer you, based on our standard design, machines of various sizes as well as different additional options and accessory machines. Due to the flexible combination options, we can configure the perfect solution for you. Should your optimal solution, however, not be achievable in this way, we would be glad to develop it together with you.
