One of the globe’s leading makers of baking and process systems for the food industry, Reading Bakery Systems, recently announced the addition of an automated snack system to its Sinking Spring, PA-based Science & Innovation Center.

“The RBS expanded snack system allows for versatility and efficiency in snack food production processes,” said Reading Bakery Systems (RBS) product line manager in mixing and extrusion technologies Joseph Cross, in a statement. “We are continually developing new shapes and formulas for this system at our Science and Innovation Center. We invite potential customers to come to the center, and work with us to create samples and help develop their business plan.”

The system, ideal for the formation of corn curls and balls, enables RBS to engage in real-world production of a variety of snacks using corn, rice, and other ingredients. Ribbons, popcorn shapes, rings, and other snack shapes and sizes can be produced.

The expansion includes a ribbon blender, ingredient transfer system for extruder refilling, a high-pressure extruder, a pneumatic transfer system to move extruded materials to a tumble dryer.

“Our customers can now see exactly how the RBS extended snack system will run in their facility,” Cross said. “This removes any guesswork – since this equipment at our Innovation Center is exactly the same as our production equipment.”
