A housing is a mechanical component's container or covering. In restaurant equipment, a housing is an exterior case or enclosure used to protect an interior mechanism, including integrated fittings or brackets to keep internal components in place. The housing prevents the interior mechanism from being fouled by outside debris or to contain the internal components.
Motors are used in all kinds of foodservice equipment to power beaters, blenders, slicers, basket lifts, filters, fans and much more. A motor converts one form of energy into mechanical energy. General-purpose motor designs with standard dimensions and characteristics provide convenient mechanical power for foodservice equipment once customized to the exact OEM specifications (RPM, torque, magnet dimension, winding, etc.).
Different types of motors are used in restaurant equipment, including AC motors, DC motors, and stepper motors. AC motors are used to power equipment that requires high torque, such as mixers and grinders, while DC motors are used in equipment that requires precise control, such as conveyor belts and automated food prep machines. Stepper motors are used in equipment that requires precise positioning, such as robot arms and automated food dispensers.
Ranging from commercial planetary mixers, spiral mixers, dough sheeters, dough rounders, and bread cutters, Thunderbird Food Machinery makes an array of food preparation products, including mixers, grinders, slicers and processors.
