Soft Dough Biscuits
Baker Perkins offers a portfolio of rotary moulders, wirecuts and extruders for the complete range of cookies and soft dough biscuits, from plain digestives to indulgent gourmet cookies.
The soft dough cookies and biscuits portfolio is completed by frozen dough cookies, baked at the point of sale to provide an enhanced level of consumer appeal.
NOTE: Terminology varies around the world; on this website we refer to anything made on a wirecut machine as a cookie and anything made on a rotary moulder as a biscuit.
Baker Perkins has been the leading supplier of cookie equipment for over 50 years, particularly in North America. High accuracy wirecut machines are the key to quality cookie production, and Baker Perkins’ wirecuts are especially designed for the very soft doughs typified by the classic chocolate chip cookie.
Wirecut machines can be specified with a range of options to ensure they meet your exact requirements. The Baker Perkins TruClean™ Wirecut combines hygienic design with the ability to control product weights very closely, and gap adjustability that allows large inclusions (typically chocolate chunks, nuts and raisins) to be handled without impairment.
Baker Perkins’ depth of process knowledge is typified by the Overhead Angled Wirecut, which increases band utilization and throughput by producing a ‘nested’ pattern on the band, rather than straight lines of dough pieces. This also improves quality by virtually eliminating the problem of dough piece edge burning caused by heat transfer from the oven band.
Filled cookies can be produced on a standard wirecut machine using an optional encapsulation module and iris cutter.
Baker Perkins’ new encapsulation system is a modular unit that can be fitted to any wirecut to convert the machine from a standard unit to one that can do both cookies and encapsulated cookies.
Fillings can include any ingredients which are low enough in viscosity, including chocolate, caramel, cream, peanut butter or jam.
