Robesonia, Pa. – Reading Bakery Systems, a manufacturer of snack production systems, has introduced a new advanced Thomas L. Green WCX Wirecut Machine offering more product flexibility, control, better safety features and easier sanitation than previous designs.

The new machine has an expanded range of product capabilities including standard and filled bars, multi-color products, filled and encapsulated cookies, pet treats and frozen dough applications. The WCX is capable of producing throughput yields of up to 300 cuts per minute while maintaining a high degree of accuracy and consistent piece weight.

The WCX Wirecut Machine uniformly cuts individual shapes with a wireframe assembly. An optional ultrasonic attachment can be used for materials that are more difficult to cut and separate cleanly. The recipe-driven linear servo motors provide an infinite number of cam profiles to control wire positioning, stroke length, drop and up-shoot. Adjustments can easily be made via the integrated touchscreen while the machine is in operation. The unit provides automatic self-timing for wire positioning to the die cup.
