Serving Up The Very Best

Our systems are designed to work with a wide array of pizza products including those that are fresh, frozen, individual, French bread-based, and bagel-based. We also have equipment for complete turn-key lines. No matter what your specific pizza needs are, our systems can handle every stage of production, for example:
  • Receiving random shells and orienting them.
  • Collating and positioning shells for delivery to third party machinery.
  • Depositing sauces onto the conveyed shells in either a border-free or waterfall application.
  • Depositing cheeses, meats, green peppers, mushrooms, onions, and any other chopped or shredded product in border-free or waterfall applications.

WaterFall Application Units

Systems with Waterfall application units are just one of the many pizza product innovations our equipment offers. As the name implies, in this application process a consistently even layer of sauce or topping cascades over the entire width of the pizza product. Note – multiple topping units can be used in a series to distribute each of the different ingredients onto the pizza.

Border Free Application Units

The units utilized by Raque Food Systems prevent sauce or toppings from reaching the edge of any pizza shell while maintaining an even distribution of both, creating "finger friendly" pizza products.

Piston Fillers & More

Our piston fillers equipped with specialized dispensing valves are what allow our machines to apply sauces and toppings evenly while leaving the shell's edging clean. Note – our topping units can incorporate targeting funnels that place the toppings onto specific areas of the pizza, if desired.

Additionally, our pizza systems can also be outfitted with:
  • Shell Dispensers
  • In-feed Indexers
  • Handwork Conveyors
  • Cheese Shredders or Meat Slicers
  • Dry Spice Applicators
  • Water Spray Conveyors
  • Converging or Diverging Conveyors
  • Checkweighers or Metal Detectors
