The Spreadmatic machines are manufactured in the UK by the same company that manufactures the well known Formatic Forming machines and Econo continuous batter, bread coating and fry lines for the food further processing / value added industry.
Made from stainless steel, the Spreadmatic machines sit on a counter or bench top and can automatically butter from 1,000 to 6,000 slices of bread per hour - depending on the model chosen.
Although an operator is still required, the monotony and chance of repetitive strain injury is all but eliminated.
The return from the machine lies in the consistency of the spread - adjustable from 3mm to 12mm as well as the higher quality spread by buttering right to the edges of the slice.
Speed and consistency are the high points of the Spreadmatic range.
We can also provide sandwich conveyors of any length which make the double row Spreadmatic an attractive proposition for large scale sandwich manufacturers.
Two bread slices are automatically buttered side by side and travel down the conveyor together where operators can decorate one of the slices from food and topping trays on an inclined shelf in front of them. The last operator places the unused slice on top of the finished sandwich for cutting and packing.
