Cup noodle packaging machine works through extrusion process, extrusion is the forcing or thrusting out of an object. Within most industries, extrusion is used in tandem with molds and cutting mechanism to create uniform, identical-shaped and formed objects. The mechanism is used for producing cup noodles.
Within the food industry, contract extrusion can have several applications. It can be used in the production as well as packaging of cereals, noodles, cookies dough as well as many other items which are found in the grocery stores. The extruders are used to grind and also mix ingredients before extruding them via a mold to the desired shape.
On a noodle packaging machine, an engine powers two large screw-shaped devices which rotate in opposite direction to the other. The distance between the two screws determine the size to which the ingredients are ground. The ingredient can also be heated or cooled throughout the food extrusion process.
At the beginning of the extrusion process, raw ingredients are fed into the primary feed port. In almost all cases, these are dry ingredients. Immediately after it has been fed into the machine, the ingredients are crushed and ground into particles which are sized appropriately. In complex mixture, an extruder may have multiple ports along its sides. These ports would allow for mid-process additions of other ingredients. The more ports, the more ingredients which can be added into the mixture. This would allow for the gradual combination of ingredients so as to ensure an ideal composition as well as integrity of the product. The extruder is mainly used for extruding but single components can be run through the extruder so as to achieve the ideal consistency as well as final product.
After mixing the ingredients, they can be heated, cool dried and additional mixture can be added to the product.
After the ingredient as well as the product has been combined and ground sufficiently, you can then move to the main extrusion process. In this step of the process, they are forced via a die to give the product the appropriate shape. This can be likened to pushing play dough via a mold. This die can be shaped in an incredible array of options, and can create hollow spaces as well as solid products.
Once it is pushed via the die, the shaped product is shorn off, and the extrusion process is complete. Based on the product, the sheering can be rapid, for when the product is small or slow for when more of the product must be extruded before cutting it off.
One of the benefits of the extrusion process is the quality as well as consistency of the finished product. This also allows you to replicate the exact product endlessly, as long as you continue to feed the ingredients into the extruder.
As you may suspect, few manufacturing as well as packaging facilities have this capability in-house. Contract extrusion is the process through which one company make use of an outside company to complete their extrusion for them. Based on the various element of the business, industry and specific technical requirements, contract extrusion as well as outsourcing the extrusion process can save a company money, time as well as manpower.
