Feed Table, Trays and Cloths for Mark VI

For making yeast-raised donuts on a Donut Robot® Mark VI system.

This 4-donut wide Feed Table is essential for making yeast-raised donuts on a Donut Robot® Mark VI. How it works is explained below. The Donut Robot® Mark VI video also shows how it's done (in "Resources" below).

Model FT2DW

Feed Table for Mark VI

Part # FT6-0005

Proofing Tray (30-60 recommended)

Proofing Tray size

18 x 27 inch (457 x 686 mm)

Part # FT2DW-0510

Proofing Cloth with Rod (30-60 recommended)

Power

Not required (Plugs into Donut Robot®)

Each Tray/Cloth combination holds 24 donuts. There is no handling of proofed donuts, using this process! 

An automated raised donut system is also available (see "Century-Mark VI" donut system) with automated proofer instead of a Feed Table.

  • Mix dough.
  • While dough is resting, prepare up to 20 Proofing Trays and 20 Proofing Cloths. The cloths are placed on top of the trays.
  • Roll dough and cut donuts, using a single donut cutter or a rotary cutter.
  • Place 24 donuts between the marked lines on the Proofing Cloths.
  • Insert each Proofing Tray and Proofing Cloth (with 12 donuts) into proofer for approximately 40 minutes.
  • After proofing, load the tray onto the Feed Table. Place the Rod at the front of the Proofing Cloth behind the hooks of the Feed Table.
  • Pull the tray out, leaving the cloth and donuts on the feed table. Return the tray to be used again at the Rolling and Cutting stage above.
  • The Feed Table advances in time with the fryer and drops the proofed donuts automatically into the fryer.
  • The cloth is deposited under the feed table, ready for another use.

Notes:

  1. A Feed Table with leg extenders is available for Mark VI Deep, which is taller than the standard Mark VI.
  2. A splash guard is included with Mark VI standard equipment. 

Each Mark VI Tray/Cloth holds 2 dozen donuts.

Mark VI 'Deep' model requires fewer Tray/Cloth combinations. (It has less capacity because of the wider spacing allowed for very large donuts). 


Each Tray/Cloth combination is in use for 1 hour to process 2 dozen raised donuts. The time taken is used for:

  • Loading cut donuts onto Tray/Cloth
  • Proofing time
  • Time for loading the Feed Table
  • Handling time, and time left over.

MARK VI - In 1 hour, the Mark VI can produce almost 90 dozen donuts at full capacity.

  • You can make good progress with 30 Trays and 30 Cloths. With these, you can make batches of 60 dozen donuts.
  • At full capacity, 45 Trays and 45 Cloths are needed.
  • For full capacity over long periods, plan for 60 Trays and 60 Cloths.

MARK VI Deep - In 1 hour, the Mark VI Deep can produce 72 dozen donuts at full capacity.

  • You can make good progress with 24 Trays and 24 Cloths. With these, you can make batches of 48 dozen donuts.
  • At full capacity, 36 Trays and 36 Cloths are needed.
  • For full capacity over long periods, plan for 48 Trays and 48 Cloths.
