İn old days sugar was produced and sold in form of amorf cylinders with a diameter of 8-10cm and lenght. 15-20cm.This type sugar blocks,before they are going to be consumed,they had to be crashed usually by means of a hammer. Ofcourse, the.amount of broken sugar.was
aranged   to be just enough for the daily consumption.The rest kept and stored as the lump. The lump sugar was very hard and not practical at all. By time technology was developed and
the size of sugar become in a form of a geometrical shape of   small cubes.This type sugar is called cube sugar.Today,generally there are three types of cube sugar.these are: soft cube sugar,hard cube sugar and brown cube sugar.Today, cube sugars are produced from cristal
sugar.Usually,proces starts before the cristal sugar is dried. This means it is possible only in a sugar factory and during the campain period.Out of the campain period or to produce cube sugar somewhere else than the sugar factory,in that case, proces starts with dry cristal sugar.
To start the process, first the dry cristal sugar is wetted by saturated steam. If the sugar is already wet this process is not necessary.To form the wet sugar in to cubes the rotary molds are used.They may be with single or multi rows.The pistons in the rectengular cavities moves
up and down depending to the angular movement (rotation pozition) of the cylindrical mold.
In 0 angle, when the piston positions at the bottom of the cavities,wet sugar is fed to fill the cavities.While the mold rotates the pistons gradually moves up and starts to pres the sugar
against a stationary surface. When mold rotates 180, the pistons reach to their upper position to discharge the formed sugar on a steel bant.The cubes in form of rows send to dryer and
packed.
