Formit Profiler

The FORMIT profilers (shapers) produce a round "ball-shaped" product from an irregular shaped raw material. Cube-shaped products can also be used as raw material.

All of the profilers developed and manufactured by FORMIT are protected by patents.

All FORMIT profilers can be operated without the addition of  water into the shaping process. Water is only required for cleaning and washing purposes.

The profiler can shape such products as potatoes, carrots, apples, melons etc, into a ball.

The FORMIT profiler can produce a round ball from an unpeeled raw material, however it is recommended to use peeled products as the raw material. The use of peeled raw material increase the capacity, improves the quality and extends the user-life of the shaping rolls.

FORMIT has delivered profilers with the diameters of the final products ranging from 17 mm to 57 mm.

FORMIT ProXL

The FORMIT ProXL profiler is designed from stainless steel and aluminum (anodized). The structure is robust and the profiler is normally installed into a production line.

The feeding of the raw material into the profiler is the most important issue when designing a successful production line. In front of the profiler, we recommend a good conveyor belt (with a speed control) and the internal feeding in the machine is performed with a vibratory feeder (included as standard).

The ProXL profiler can also be equipped with an external push feeder that can replace the vibratory feeder and the conveyor.

The ProXL requires frequency converters to control the speed of the lifting and peeling rolls, as well as for the control of the vibratory feeder. The possibility to control all speeds separately, gives the advantage of using the profiler for various products and sizes.

For removal of the secondary product, we recommend a pump installed under the machine. When producing balls from a pre-peeled product of a good size, the quantity of the secondary product quantity may be almost the same as the primary product produced

FORMIT PROX

The FORMIT ProX is designed from aluminum (anodized) and stainless steel. The profiler is suitable for smaller installations with a ready product production capacity of up to 150 kg/ hour.

The ProX profilers are suitable for producing balls sized between 17 and 33 mm.

The feeding of the raw material into the ProX is important for successful production results. It is recommended to place a good speed controlled conveyor in front of the profiler.

Raw materials, such as potatoes and carrots (cut), can be successfully used. Cube shaped raw material can also be used.

It is recommended to pre-peel all the raw material before use. Pre-peeled raw material improves the quality of the final product, increases the capacity and extends the user-life of the cutting edges on the shaping rolls.

After the shaping process, it is recommended that the products are washed.

For removal of the secondary product, we recommend the installation of a pump or some other transportation system underneath the machine. When producing balls from a pre-peeled product of a good size, the quantity of the secondary product may be almost the same as the primary product produced.

The ProX is not recommended to be used with soft material such as melons.
