After watching the Ramen demonstration workshop, here come to the important visit, which our Nuffnang lead and Pinky will bring us to visit their Production department which located in 2nd floor of the factory.

A noodle making process is composed of mixing, Rolling, Slitting, Steaming, Cutting, Frying, Cooling, and Packing processes. For uniform products, the roller gap in the rolling process needs to keep the uniform thickness of dough sheets in spite of different kinds of raw materials. In this paper, we propose a rolling process automation using a their unique machine to contribute to process standardization by transferring from tacit knowledge of skilled workers to explicit knowledge. 

By rolling out the dough sheet once or more after the powdered oil is applied to the dough sheet, the powdered oil is firmly fixed to the dough sheet so as to get into the dough sheet by the rolling-out performed after the application of the powdered oil. Therefore, the oil melted during the steaming is prevented from dropping off from the noodle strings without achieving the effect of adequately coating the surfaces of the noodle strings. Thus, the high effect is obtained. Since particles of the powdered oil get into the surfaces of the noodles by the rolling-out, minute depressions and projections are formed on the surfaces of the noodles.

Noodle slitting is doing by a cutting machine, which is equipped with a pair of rolls, a slitter, and a cutter. The final dough sheet thickness is set on the rolls according to noodle type and measured using a thickness dial gauge. Noodle width determines the size of noodle slitter to be use. 

Here come to the steaming method is wherein the noodle dough is partially gelatinized by steaming after being formed into a sheet by rolling.

A process for manufacturing a dry instant-noodles product comprising steaming or boiling noodle strings that have been cut out of a dough, transporting said strings on a net conveyor, and applying air, an inert gas or a mixture thereof to said strings from both above and below so as to expand and dry them; wherein the air, inert gas or mixture thereof is controlled to have an elevated temperature of around 100°. and supplied from a separate high-pressure compartment at high speed through spray nozzle tubes provided both above and below said net conveyor.

The final dough sheet thickness is set on the rolls according to noodle type and measured using a thickness dial gauge. The sheet is cutting into noodle strands of desired width with a slitter. Noodles square. Noodle strands are cuts into a desirable length by a cutter. Making instant noodles, noodle strands are wave before steaming and cutting.

Frying process. This process is to removing moisture from the noodles by frying them in oil at a high temperature. This method makes it possible to dehydrate the noodles almost completely. Moreover, it has the added advantage of leaving countless minuscule holes on the surface, making it easier for the noodles to rehydrate when steeped in hot water.

Before packaging with seasoning, the noodles are cooled after drying, and its quality of moisture, color, and shape are checked.

The processing effect the same as in the first inventive aspect is obtainable by dispersing the powdery or granular seasonings, etc. mentioned above, which may be fixed simultaneously on the strings of noodles, as the thermal caking component or the edible oil will be caked or dissolved extremely rapidly and uniformly in heating and solidifying on the surface of the strings of noodle immediately by the cooling after the heating.

The important and fundamental principles of packaging technology are to protect, to preserve, to
contain and to inform. Principally, the purpose of packaging is to contain and protect a product throughout its distribution and sale.
Instant noodle packaging material is named flexible packaging. Like plastic, flexible packaging is everywhere. 
Done all the Rolling, Slitting, Steaming, Cutting, Frying, Cooling, and finally come to the Packing process.

There are two forms of packaged instant noodles, one in a bag with the provided seasoning in small sachets inside, or in a cup with seasoning on the top of the noodles. There are three flavors to the Mamee Chef noodles depending on which ones are added to the seasoning. Such flavors include chicken, Laksa and Tom Yam comes with a pre-packed condiment. There are different condiments for different flavours such as prawns, bite-sized tofu, shiitake mushrooms and dehydrated vegetables.
After cooling, the noodles are placed in styrofoam cups for the instant cup noodle and flavoring is added. 
etc. In instant noodle cups, dried chillies, sweet corn and dehydrated vegetables are often added for further flavor.
The cup design containers are microwave-able and all are In-Mold Labeling with Mamee brand graphics design.

For the Mamee snacks are placed to Tubs and Mamee chips are placed to plastic that follow by it's own packaging designs.

These are the Mamee Double Decker and Mamee Chef were being presented with few recognition and few awards.
