Kaak FPS Lidder / De-lidder / Lid Storage

Automatic Lidder

To achieve the square shape of toast bread, baking pans must be provided with a lid. In an industrial toast line, the lid is positioned on top of the pans by means of the Automatic Lidder. The machine is positioned between the final proofer and the oven.
Using a ‘pick-and-place’ principle, the lidder head (vacuum or magnetic) picks up the lids from an infeed conveyor. They are then transferred to the pan conveyor and placed on top of the pans. The machine’s dimensions are determined by the line capacity, pan sizes, layout, etc.

Automatic De-lidder

After baking toast bread, the lids must be removed prior to de-panning. In an industrial toast line, the lid is removed by means of the Automatic De-lidder. The machine is positioned between the oven and the de-panner. By means of a pick-and-place principle, the de-lidder head (vacuum or magnetic) picks the lids up off the pans. They are then transferred to the lid discharge conveyor.
The machine’s dimensions are determined by the line capacity, pan sizes, layout, etc.

Lid Storage

Lid storage can be combined either with the lidder into one unit, or positioned as a separate storage unit. The concept can be either a Gantry Robot System (combined with the Pan Storage) or with pre-stackers. Lid stacks are stored on chain conveyors behind the pre-stacker.
