*** Texas Inventor Develops Patent for Automatic Sausage Rolling Machine ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 22 -- Young S. Choi, Carrollton, Texas, has developed a patent (8,353,742) for an "automatic sausage rolling machine." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A machine utilizing gravity to reduce costs when rolling a food dough casing around a sausage. The machine includes first, second, and third conveyors, a carrier, and a pusher block. The third conveyor is disposed to one side of the carrier, and is rotatably affixed to a horizontal surface. The second conveyor is rotatably affixed above the third conveyor. The pusher block is disposed to the other side of the carrier, is slidably affixed to the horizontal surface, and pushes the sausage towards the carrier, initially. The first conveyor is rotatably affixed above the pusher block, and conveys the food dough casing initially, and thereafter, the food dough casing falls downwardly by the gravity. The carrier is disposed between the pusher block and the third conveyor, is rotatably affixed to the horizontal surface, and relays a partially food dough cased sausage to between the second conveyor and the third conveyor." The patent application was filed on April 30, 2012 (13/460,466).
