Richmen Specifications – Yamato Manufacturing

Richmen Series Characteristic Features



Automatic Flour Duster

Flour output volume freely adjustable

Automatically sprinkles flour / starch on the noodle sheet during different operation steps. Connected to the main engine, so if the press stops, the duster does so, too. The flour output can be regulated by a small turning knob on the side of the unit.




Press Roll Unit

Easy-to-use press unit

The gap between the two heavy duty stainless steel compression drums can be adjusted in 1/10s of a millimeter (100μm steps). The Richmen series Ramen machines are all equipped with a convenient foot switch for the main motor, so you can control the machine while having your hands free to work. One of the most important features of the roll unit is safety. The safety grid above the rolls is designed not to let through even the delicate hands of a female operator and the slightest movement of the grid causes the motor to stop immediately.




Dough Tray

Rounded edges for easy cleaning

After the dough has been kneaded in the mixing unit, it is transported from the mixer to the roll unit above. Our specially designed hygienic tray is used for this step. The tray has no edges, so waste of the dough is reduced to a minimum and it’s very easy to wipe off any residue afterwards.

Mixing Unit

Safety first

The mixer is designed in a way that even beginners have no problems using it. The motor stops automatically, if the glass lid is removed. It is possible to add water to the mixture without having to remove the safety lid and with the included sponges the mixer autonomously cleans itself after use!

Roller Clearance Adjustment Handle

Free adjustment of noodle thickness

Adjustment of the noodle thickness is done by turning the crank handle, which sets the gap between the two roll drums. While doing that, the exact thickness is indicated in the center of the handle.




Cutter Unit

Multipurpose cutter for various kinds of noodles

With the multipurpose cutting unit you can make any type of Ramen noodles by inserting the blade set with the appropriate width. You can make straight, curled, thick and thin noodles and even some variations of Udon and Soba!


Infinite Options With Various Cutter Blades!

Infinite possibilities for noodle types, thanks to a range of different blade sets and the ability to exactly control the ingredients.

You can easily adjust the thickness or curling of the noodles by changing the blade set.

It is also possible to make flat noodles like Tagliatelle or Pappardelle and with the included device which is mounted below the blade set, you can make curly Ramen noodles just like the ones from the supermarket, only they’re fresh and contain no chemical additives!
