As the demand for new and more sophisticated ice cream products continues to skyrocket, medium capacity producers need an extrusion line with the flexibility to handle a wide product range and changeovers on the fly. Our new best practice medium capacity extrusion line helps medium capacity producers capitalize on the growing trends – handling everything from cones and wafer cups with sophisticated swirls and fillings to candy bars and enrobed bite-size products.
Consumers are looking for cones and wafer cups with two flavours of ice cream swirled high together, ice cream filled with swirls of marmalade or caramel and products with different flavours such as coffee or caramel core-filled into a vanilla ice cream. Consumers also crave tasty inclusions such as pieces of chocolate or candy. Our best practice medium capacity extrusion line is completely servo-driven, enabling these advanced swirling and filling techniques, inclusions of up to 10 mm in diameter and lets cones and wafer cups swirl up to new heights.
As the health trend continues to grow, we also see a huge demand on the market for smaller portion sizes such as candy bars and bite-sized products enrobed in chocolate. Our integrated system for handling chocolate enrobed products has the smallest footprint and is the best solution on the market, making it easy for producers to capitalize on this trend. The hardening tunnel in our best practice medium capacity extrusion line does double duty – first it hardens the ice cream, then after the product has been dipped in chocolate, it hardens the chocolate as well. This saves producers from having a separate stand-alone after-cooler that’s takes up valuable space.
