Ice cream cones

A smarter cone dispenser

Performance in every detail

  • Easy loading

  • No double feeding

  • No sensitivity to twisted tips

  • Less sensitive to cone quality and shape

Thanks to:

  • Rings that support and guide stacks of cones

  • Pullers with adjustable rubber pistons for reliable cone separation

  • Plug-and play sub-units

  • Open stack design

Cone dispenser

How it works

Two holding rings support and guide the stacks of cones. Two pullers with rubber pistons are adjusted to the right pressure to separate the bottom cone from the stack and gently release it onto the lamella. The dispenser is not sensitive to spacing errors in the stack. And it prevents jamming in case damaged cones are loaded into the dispenser.

Accurate chocolate sprayer

The accurate chocolate sprayer

Exactly right – every time

  • Exact and desired amount of chocolate in each cone

  • Even layer covering entire cone interior

  • Consistent cone quality with minimized chocolate waste

  • Easy operation

  • On-the-fly adjustments

  • Less maintenance – lower cost

  • Hygienic design

  • Top-of-the-line performance at modest investment cost

Thanks to:

  • Airless nozzle and individual pumps for each lane

  • Flush feature

  • Integrated optical sensor and calibration

Chocolate sprayer

How it works

The chocolate sprayer uses individual pumps with high quality pressure valves for each lane – with adjustable volumetric dosing that ensures a high degree of repeatability and that the specified amount of chocolate is very evenly sprayed into each cone. An airless system eliminates the messiness of systems using air pressure. The unit is enclosed to prevent chocolate mist in the surroundings.

Trouble-free lid dispenser

Trouble-free lid dispenser

Gets it right the first time

  • Reliable operation

  • Controlled lid dispensing – gets it right every time

  • Line capacity can be changed without adjusting lid dispenser

  • No need for extra calibrator

  • Great changeover flexibility for different lid sizes and –types

Thanks to:

  • Vacuum suction cup

  • Vacuum controller

  • Plug-and play sub-units

Lid dispenser

See how it works

Lids are placed in stacks (separated by pins) and pulled down individually using a vacuum suction cup. The lids are then rotated 180 degrees to invert them, in short, stable and optimized steps. Lids are correctly positioned every time and there is no need to reposition them.

A simplified two-step vertical movement allows changes in line capacity without adjusting the lid dispenser. Operation is extremely reliable. There is no need for an extra calibrator after the lid dispenser.
