English term or phrase:template
The Cross Splitter uses jets of water to split the tops of dough pieces in the direction, which is perpendicular to the direction of conveyor travel. The theory of operation of this machine is described below.
As a pan travels under the Cross Splitter it encounters a "soft" pan stop designed to slow down the pan over a distance of about two inches and gently bring the pan to a stop at a precise location, thereby avoiding damage to the dough pieces. The pan stop uses an air cylinder to raise and lower the stop plate as commanded by the controller. A hydraulic damper in the pan stop is used to absorb the energy of the moving pans.
Just before the pan is stopped, the leading edge of the pan triggers a sensor, which is looking down vertically through the conveyor. This pan switch tells the controller that a pan is present and that a splitting cycle can begin. At this time the brake on the carriage drive motor is turned off, the clutch is engaged, and the carriage with the water spray nozzles starts to move across the conveyor.
The carriage holds a "manifold" containing an array of nozzles. The manifold is arranged in a pattern that matches the pattern of the cups in the pan, which is to be split. A stationary sensor is used to turn the nozzles on and off. The sensor is actuated by a moving template that is attached to the manifold. As the carriage begins to move across the conveyor and the nozzles approach the starting points for the split, the moving template on the manifold triggers the sensor, which turns a solenoid on, permitting water to flow through all the nozzles. The carriage continues to move across the pan and the nozzles are turned ON and OFF in accordance with the shape of the template.
