Make premium uniform products with inclusions up to 25 mm

A patented stick placement solution secures precise stick position and enables even distribution of inclusions around each stick. The filling nozzle fills each cavity completely and ensures even distribution of large inclusions. The patented wheel design, with its piston and cam system, ensures uniform product thickness, size and shape and eliminates the need for cutting. Instead, a thin heated blade positioned flush with wheel surface releases every ice cream product accurately and gently onto trays. This ensures a smooth product surface and exact positioning for pick-up and further processing.
