From Oven to Packaging

Established in Holland in 1922 as a ship repair company, this family owned business evolved into a technology business, with a singular focus on the handling, packing and sandwiching of biscuits, cookies and crackers.

With an accumulated experience of more than a 1,000 years in biscuit handling, the team at Houdijk are dedicated to engineering, assembling and commissioning state-of-the-art systems in order to make our customers more efficient and successful through automation.

First in Biscuit Feeding – Houdijk’s primary focus is on biscuits, cookies and crackers. With recent developments such as the VISION SELECTOR, the HOUDIJK CAPPER, the FLEX-SKIPPER piling system and the COOKIEBOT Pick and Place system, HOUDIJK are setting new standards for high capacity, high speed biscuit feeding aligned with low cost of ownership, hygienic design and vertical start-up.

Product Inspection

To improve the total line efficiency, all products are inspected by the VISION SELECTOR.

The location of the VISION SELECTOR is always chosen before the product flow is captured between guides.

The objective of this system is to ‘protect’ the downstream equipment by rejecting products that may cause stoppages (and possibly waste) or require manual interference by the supervisor.

The standardized VISION SELECTOR comprises an array of camera’s to inspect the products regarding circumference, height, shape and position, to qualify or disqualify products. Furthermore the VISION SELECTOR features an individual product reject unit for any disqualified products.

The VISION SELECTOR system collects data on product quality (defects, over time and over the belt width) which can be shared with your MES system.

Additional quality control (e. g. colour, surface) can be integrated based on customer specifications.

Capping & Depositing

HOUDIJK are focused on handling biscuits from an oven or cooling conveyor in to a HOUDIJK CAPPER™, a sandwiching machine, a HOUDIJK CLIPPER™ or a wrapping arena.

The HOUDIJK CAPPER offers ultimate flexibility for change-overs between different product sizes and shapes. Many different depositing materials such as aerated fat creams, jams, marshmallow or chocolate can be deposited. It offers the highest possible output with capacities of up to 6,000 sandwiches/minute.

The flexibility and high capacity is supported by many additional standard features securing an overall efficiency of 99+%, with one supervisor only.

The system is meeting uncompromised food safety standards.

HOUDIJK CAPPER

Product Distribution

The HOUDIJK FLOWMASTERwill distribute biscuits to multiple wrapping legs. Suitable for high volume sandwich biscuits, wire cut or deposited cookies and chocolate enrobed biscuits. The system will accept randomly organized products or regimented rows of product.

For ‘on demand’ distribution of your product flow to multi-leg downstream equipment, the FLOWMASTER product distribution system takes care of this task. It is suitable for high volumes of product, able to accept a random arrival of product.

The high volumes of modern production lines cannot be handled by a single wrapper. The FLOWMASTER is a flexible system to distribute large number of products over various legs. Whether tray loaders, slug wrappers, portion pack (vending pack) wrappers or flexible loading systems, it is possible to distribute different percentages to each leg.

The FLOWMASTER handles products flat on the belt. Product is always carried on its most stable bottom surface. By flat product handling, the product is prevented from being squeezed or scuffed.
