Cheese ball production process

Our company offers professional cheese ball making machines. The production steps of cheese balls include dough mixing, extruding, cutting, frying/baking, seasoning, and packaging. In a fully automatic cheese ball production line, all the major machines mentioned above are needed and it is also necessary to use a hoister and conveyors as supporting equipment.

Dough-maker machine

The dough mixer machine is widely used in bakeries, cake shops, restaurants, households, and other places. It is the first part of the cheese ball machinery. In the mixer, powdery ingredients and water can mix uniformly. The spiral stirring hook rotates in the mixer, and the maize hominy is constantly pushed, pulled, kneaded, and pressed, thus quickly mixed.

In this way, the dry maize hominy can obtain uniform hydration and become a dough with elasticity and uniform flow. Notably, the degree of puffing is affected by the humidity and starch content of the raw materials. Therefore, while selecting raw materials, it is preferable to pick raw materials with the proper content of water and starch.

Double-screw extruder

The twin-screw extruder is an essential one among cheese ball making machines. The corn puff making machine produces puffed food by processing various grains, such as rice, millet, corn, soybean, and wheat. Its main working principle is to extrude food with the heat generated when the machine rotates.

An obvious feature of puffed food is that its size becomes larger. The puffed food has a crisp taste, and unique flavor, easy to digest and carry. It is an ideal leisure food for consumers. The raw materials can be shaped in the holes of special molds at high temperatures. Changing the types of molds can result in puffed foods of different shapes.

Structure of maize puffing machine

The cheese ball making machine comprises a feeder, cylinder, gearbox, motor, frame, rotary cutting system, control system, and others. The extruder has a set of screws and screw sleeves, called an expansion cavity.

After entering the expansion chamber, the raw materials are squeezed, rubbed, and sheared between the screw and the screw sleeve. Then, the internal pressure and temperature rise continuously, so the material starch gelatinizes. After coming out from the outlet, the pressure and the temperature suddenly decrease, and the water flashes, so the material shows a porous or flocculent appearance.

Cheese ball cutter machine

The pulling and cutting machine is the supporting equipment for the dough maker or corn puffing machine. The lengthy materials are dragged to the cheese puffs cutter machine. The lengthy strips are then chopped into little uniform triangle shapes by the blades of the food shaping machine. Customers may select specific shaping equipment with other molds or blades based on their needs.
