Pattymakers

With throughputs ranging from 1200 to 7800 patties per hour, Hollymatic makes portioners for nearly every product and size of operation. From shape to dimensions and weight, most end-products are achivable in an efficient manner from every unit. Patty portioners can be used for a variety of applications including chicken nuggets, meatballs, burgers, and plant-based alternatives. Click on the model with the throughput you’re looking for to learn more about the specific unit, or reach out to have the various features and methods explained.

Processor’s Pattymaker

Capable of 2,100 to 2,200 patties per hour and up to 10 oz. portions, the Processor’s Pattymaker is more versatile than smaller alternatives because of the optional dies available. By partitioning the diameter of the dies you can produce 4”, 3”, and 2” products, whether round, square, or nuggets in custom shapes. It consistently delivers precise portions and automatically interleaves paper slips between them. It comes standard with a 33 lb. hopper which can be upsized, among other options as shown below.

Deli Pattymaker

Capable of up to 1900 patties per hour in up to 5.3 oz. portions, the Deli Pattymaker is also popular in grocery stores and cafeterias. It delivers consistent portions in selectable shapes and automatically separates patties with paper. Mold plates from 3/16” x 4.5” to 3/8” x 4.7” are included, and the machine can be set to run at 1200, 1600, or 1900 portions per hour. All contact surfaces are food-grade and carts with wheels are available as an option for mobility.

Meat Bulker

The Meat Bulker is a small attachment which forms meat (or plant substitute) into squares for packaging or further processing. Intended to be affixed to the output of a Mixer/Grinder from Hollymatic, the Meat Bulker can be used with most solutions on the market. With portion control from 8 to 32 oz., the Bulker precisely forms product into uniform shapes and sizes and can feed them onto a conveyor for further processing or stack them with paper automatically placed between portions.

Butcher’s Pattymaker

Capable of 1,800 to 2,100 patties per hour in up to 8 oz. portions, the Butcher’s Pattymaker is one of the most popular in the industry and famous for its reliability with low total cost of ownership.

Rotary Pattymaker

Capable of 1,700 and 3,900 patties per hour, the Rotary Processor’s Pattymaker uses a rotary filler, which is currently the best available method on the market. It produces patties which are more tender, cook faster, and shrink less than those formed with other methods. Multiple plate options are available, and because two patties are formed at a time, this includes the option to produce two different patty types simultaneously. The Rotary Pattymaker uses a 200 lb. capacity hopper with feed auger and automatically places paper between patties.

Commercial Pattymaker

Capable of 1,800 to 7,800 patties per hour, the Commercial Pattymaker uses a rotary filler, which is currently the best available method on the market. It produces patties which are more tender, cook faster, and shrink less than those formed with other methods. Multiple plate options are available, and because two patties are formed at a time, this includes the option to produce two different patty types simultaneously. The Commercial Pattymaker uses a 400 lb. capacity hopper with feed auger and automatically places paper between patties.

Mixer/Grinders

With throughputs ranging from 50 to 146 lbs./min., Hollymatic’s Mixer/Grinders simultaneously mix and grind product (typically meat). Most models employ a paddle/auger combination with the exception of the ribbon model, which achieves greater homogeneity at the cost of throughput.

An open-grid lid allows seasoning to be added during operation and the lid is counterbalanced for ergonomic-friendly operation.

Processor’s Mixer/Grinder

Capable of up to 120 lbs./min. with a 300 lb. hopper, the Processor’s Mixer/Grinder employs thin paddles in the angle of ribbons. As a hybrid between ribbon and paddle mixers, they strike a balance between high homogeny and throughput while preserving the ability to mix forward or reverse. The Processor’s Mixer/Grinder features a variable speed motor and programmable timer which allows fast, slow, and auto mixes. It is a rugged solution for mixing any kind of meat, or plant substitute, from fat to lean. The mixer rotates at a right angle to the auger to minimize its product exposure and avoid temperature buildup, preserving the presentability of the end-product. An open-grid lid allows seasoning to be added during operation, and the lid is counterbalanced for ergonomic accessibility.

Ribbon Mixer/Grinder

Ribbon Mixer-Grinders achieve the most homogenous mix possible at the cost of throughput (65 lbs./min instead of 120). The Ribbon Mixer/Grinder includes a 200 lb. hopper and is a rugged and reliable solution for mixing any kind of meat or plant substitute, from fat to lean. The ribbon spiral rotates at a right angle to the auger to minimize its product exposure and avoid temperature buildup, which helps preserve the presentability of the end-product. Streamlined cleaning features also help reduce the risk of cross-contamination between batches. The small-batch ribbon blender is at a convenient height for loading/unloading, and features tool-less plate changes.

Tabletop Mixer/Grinder

The Tabletop Mixer-Grinder is capable of up to 50 lbs/hr. with a 50 lb. hopper and is popular among grocery stores, restaurants, and small meat wholesalers. It’s small enough to fit on a tabletop, and like all Hollymatic equipment, can last a lifetime. It employs figure 8 mixing paddles for consistency and speed, and the all-stainless design with single-tool disassembly simplifies cleaning between batches. A perforated lid allows seasoning to be added during operation, and the lid is counterbalanced for ease-of-use and cleaning.

Coarse Grinder

The Course Grinder from Hollymatic is a first-pass solution for course and whole-muscle inputs. It can be attached to a pattymaker directly for course-grind end products or be coupled with a mixer-grinder for finer grinds or blended products. Capable of up to 6,500 lbs./hr. throughput, the Course Grinder comes stock with a 100-lb. hopper which can be used to feed product manually or account for overflow from a continuously-feeding conveyor. The motor can optionally be reduced to roughly half-speed and the hopper size can be doubled to facilitate integration with other equipment.

Butcher’s Mixer/Grinder

The Butcher’s Mixer-Grinder is an economical yet rugged solution for mixing any kind of meat, fat to lean. The figure-8 mixing paddles create smooth blends and the minimally-exposed augers keep the product from heating, which helps protect shelf-life and appeal. The Butcher’s Mixer/Grinder (180A from Hollymatic) is preferable to the Tabletop model when budget allows because of the larger hopper and greater simplicity when combining with a feed grinder to create a “Gemini System”.
Streamlined cleaning features also help reduce the risk of cross-contamination between batches. The stainless hopper is counter-weighted so it can be swiveled and easy-accessed or removed for cleaning. The mixing paddles, grinder head, and auger can also be removed using a single tool.
