Know your noodle machine. Richmen: CANs, CAN'Ts, TIPS & HACKS

To know your craft — first, know your tools, and for small-mid scale noodle businesses worldwide – especially those specializing in such varietiy of noodles as ramen – “Richmen” series noodle machines are a de facto industry standard for noodle making equipment.

Designed by Yamato MFG, and assembled at its factory in Kagawa prefecture (Japan), different models of the “Richmen” series are a way to go for anyone looking for a reliable Roller-type noodle machine with a production capacity and product quality far exceeding consumer-grade noodle makers but requiring far less space to install and operate than large scale factory lines.

Having been on the market for several decades, and successfully used by noodle businesses in almost 70 countries, “Richmen” series has gained a large fan base (both among food businesses and consumers alike), for whom “Richmen” is the only noodle equipment option, and the only space for consideration lies in the choice between different models.

What “Excel” is for spreadsheet software, so “Richmen” is for small-mid scale commercial equipment for high quality craft noodles. Thus, a thorough knowledge and a firm command of its capabilities, features, limitations, and methods of use can be a very important factor determining whether a noodle business would be successful or not.

On May 13, 2021 join Yamato for a free online class dedicated to the “Richmen” series noodle machines in general, and the newest and currently the most advanced among them – “Richmen Gold” in particular.

Although one may opine that such content is rather closer to a sales talk than to a class, Yamato puts it into the educational category considering that for many people “Richmen” is a business partner in its own right they rely upon to produce the main component of their businesses — which makes an in-depth understanding of how it works, how and for what purposes it can be used, or not used (!) absolutely imperative.

Not many people are fond of reading User Manuals, or they may forget certain important things they learned at Noodle Schools or through personal training. On the one hand, this can lead to machine malfunction (which is bad in itself) but on the other – this can also be a cause of not using their machines to the full potential as well.

These and other issues will be addressed during the class, with a special emphasis on the “Richmen Gold” model, where existing users can refresh and deepen their knowledge of the machine, and those who are only considering getting one decide whether it fits their needs and circumstances or not.

Among other things we will cover such topics as:

– how different are udon or soba noodles produced on the “Richmen” series noodle machines from the same type of noodles made on “Shin’Uchi” or “Bando Taro” machines

– how to calculate correct dough water ratios

– how to choose a correct Roller gap during different stages of noodle production

– how to choose the right cutter size for noodles with different hydration / size


The class is Free, and its live broadcast is accessible by the link that will be sent to your email address after you sign up.  


a link to the Class’s livestream will be sent to your email address 30 minutes before the start of the class
