Sollich KG of Germany is a leading global supplier of enrobers, tempering systems, cooling tunnels, and bar forming equipment with a complete line of optional supplementary equipment.

Sollich will display their Enromat® M6-1300 enrober, Minicoater® Type MC 420 with a truffle ball feeder and a section of Thermo-Flow® Plus Cooling Tunnel Type KK 1050 Hybrid with PU Gullwing Covers. The Enromat® M6-1300 enrober boasts innovative design and incorporates the latest components available in building this state-of-the-art machine.  One example is the patented wire tensioned detailer system, which has eliminated the clips normally required to hold the detailer rod in place.  The detailer assembly, curtain trough, bottoming station and other components can be removed for maintenance and cleaning.  The newly designed coating weight control stations, such as the blowers and shaking unit, give excellent weight control and a hygienic design. 

Sollich’s Minicoater® MC 420 is a small-scale chocolate coater with a built-in chocolate tempering system.  The Minicoater has a separate frequency-controlled drive for the bottoming roller and a removable wire tensioned detailer system.  This enrober comes in either a 12- or 16-inch-wide wire belt.  This unit will be displayed together with a truffle ball feeder and an optional wire belt infeed table.

The Thermo-Flow® Plus Cooling Tunnel Type KK 1050 Hybrid with PU Gullwing cooling tunnel has PU-Covers in Gullwing design and is constructed for full wash down capabilities from the product zone down.  The tunnel’s frame and base are made of stainless steel and other non-rusting materials.  The covers are made from PU which is a lightweight, durable composite material.  Sollich’s Gullwing design with PU covers makes opening and closing the covers very simple.  This tunnel has excellent efficiency and is sealed on all sides without heat bridges.  The design gives operators easy access into the tunnel from all sides which gives the ability to inspect all areas.  Thermo-Flow cooling tunnels also features fewer critical control points by reducing the number of components in direct and indirect contact with the product.

Chocotech GmbH, the sister company of Sollich KG, offers state of the art solutions for confectionery kitchens producing caramel, fondant, aerated products, jelly, hard candy, fruit snacks, binders, brittle, and Halwa.  Chocotech’s chocolate division has lentil forming lines, mouldless chocolate shells and deposited centers for pralines.  

Chocotech will display their Princess Jellymaster® with a mixing station and a Volumetric Color, Flavor, Acid and Active Ingredient Dosing System.

The Princess Jellymaster® is a continuous cooking system for all types of jellies and marshmallow-based masses containing gelatin, agar-agar, gum arabic, pectin, carrageenan, modified and high amylose starch. The unit includes a mixing / slurry buffer tank, a Sucrotwist® pressure dissolver and a flash off and vacuum vessel. The Sucrotwist® special design allows for no dead space anywhere within the cooker. There are no restrictions at all in terms of the jellying agents to be used. The cooker features first-in first-out product flow with determined guidance of the turbulently streaming product, PLC control with synchronized components in a completely hygienic design that can be connected easily into a CIP-system.

Chocotech’s Color, Flavor, Acid, and Active Ingredient Dosing System consists of four holding tanks for liquid ingredients, four extremely accurate diaphragm pumps, and needle metering valves for injecting the liquids into the product flow. These systems can handle masses with a viscosity up to 1,000 mPas. Chocotech’s dosing system is constructed from 316 stainless steel, is very hygienically designed, and has a wash water connection for cleaning.

Dumoulin of France manufactures a complete range of automatic high-capacity panning systems in batch sizes up to 6,600 lbs. One important advantage of a Dumoulin machine is their innovative design resulting in the smallest bed depth of any similar unit. This in turn means that all Dumoulin drums are gentle on delicate centers. Shallow bed depth also increases the amount of surface area in contact with freshly conditioned air. This reduces the processing time, allowing the coating to be distributed very quickly and evenly over all centers.  Retractable spray arms make inspection easier. Solid drums are used for chocolate engrossing while perforated drums are used for hard sugar and hard sugar-free panning. Dumoulin will not be displaying equipment, but they will be represented, and brochures will be available.

Theegarten-Pactec is a leading manufacturer in the field of packaging technology with operations all over the world and international clientele that covers all continents.  In addition to high-speed continuous and intermittent packaging machines, Theegarten-Pactec’s portfolio also includes a variety of feeding and storage components.  This enables them to offer complete systems for primary and secondary packaging all from one source.  They provide packaging technology solutions for hard candy, pre-formed products, soft and hard caramels, chewing gum, chocolate products and more.

Theegarten-Pactec will not be displaying equipment, but they will be represented, and brochures will be available.

Booth # SU-7206 will be staffed by John Holland, Danila Daniloff, Sean Burns and Sarah Sheffield of Sollich North America, Klaus-Dietrich Franzmeier, Peter Koch, Sebastian Schultz, and Daniel Wajandt of Sollich KG, Volker Günnel, Andreas Janko, Paulo Coco, and Marie Heymann of Chocotech GmbH, and Markus Rustler, and Daniel Schibur of Theegarten-Pactec.
