Why A Removable Head Matters For Your Dough Divider Rounder

Did you know that not all divider rounders are created equal? While production rate and ease of use are important, the ability to easily remove and interchange knife head assemblies should also be considered. While a removable knife head facilitates easier cleaning; a machine with an interchangeable knife head system enables your bakery to produce multiple products using one machine.

How Does It Work?

In an interchangeable system, an existing knife head is removed like normal and replaced with another knife head (that has corresponding rounding plates) capable of processing a different weight range. This includes being able to make both larger and smaller bread and rolls.

How Do I Know If I Need A Removable Head System?

Below are some considerations you can keep in mind when determining if a divider rounder with a removable, interchangeable head system is right for you.

  • Do you make multiple products that require dividing and rounding?
  • Do you have limited floor space? This system can help eliminate the need for an additional machine, thus saving space on the production floor.

Benefits of Erika Record Divider Rounders with a Removable Knife Head Assembly System

Model compatibility: The dough divider rounder you have must have a removeable head assembly. In the case of Erika Record divider rounders, removable knife heads also tend to be interchangeable. This includes our Semi RH, Easy, and Easy Plus models.

Weight Ranges: Depending on the diversity of your product lineup, you will want to find a divider rounder that has an extensive array of knife head assemblies with varying weight ranges. In the case of Erika Record, we have 8 knife head configurations that are interchangeable, each accommodating their own specified weight range.

Automation Process: The most labor-intensive portion in using a divider rounder is the pressing process. We have a wide variety of compatible RH system divider rounders that can help make processing your dough easier. This includes manually pressing, diving, and rounding (Semi RH); automatically pressing while manually dividing and rounding (Easy); or automatically pressing and dividing while manually rounding (Easy Plus).

Unlimited Rounding: Our RH compatible divider rounders offer unlimited rounding time, easily controlled by the operator via an ergonomic handle.
