Reiser and Vemag have developed the perfect solution for the high-speed production of gourmet hamburger patties with a "homemade" look. This hugely successful system combines a Vemag Stuffer with the Vemag FM250 Forming Machine. The high-speed FM250 produces the lightest, fluffiest, juiciest, and most tender patty you'll ever taste. Use it to produce all types of patties – hamburger patties, poultry patties, sausage patties, fish patties and more. Optional interleaving, check weighing, stacking and tray loading are available to complete the line.

Vemag Stuffer
At the heart of the system lies the Vemag Stuffer. The Vemag features a powerful positive displacement double-screw pump that provides the highest levels of portioning accuracy. The double-screw transports product extremely gently and without smearing. The Vemag is available in various models and hopper capacities to meet any production requirement.

Vemag FM250 Forming Machine
The Vemag FM250 Forming Machine is the most flexible solution for high-speed forming of gourmet hamburger patties with a "homemade" look. Unlike conventional patty forming machines that use high-pressure to compress meat into flat, rubbery "pucks", the FM250 uses a gentle, low-pressure system to form patties that look homemade and have a tender bite that no other machine can produce. Meat fibers are not crushed or destroyed on the FM250 – instead they retain their natural alignment so that the finished patty has the superior bite, texture and eating quality of a hand-made product.

Connected to a Vemag HP-E filler with an in-line grinder, the FM250 provides high output and exact weight portions. An easy-to-change forming nozzle allows quick product changeovers. The system is available with an interleaver and/or stacker, as well as a high-speed shuttle to load freezer and oven belts. A Vemag Process Check check weigher can also be added inline to automatically monitor individual patty weights and adjust the filler – ensuring uniform weights and reduced giveaway.
