Equipment & Options

Special features

  • Two stage stainless steel in-feed rope sizing and calibrating unit for precise adjustment of the rope speed and dimension with air jets to cool and clean the sizing rollers from starch and product residues
  • Water-cooled guillotine knife
  • The pieces are cut vertically from the (normally round) mass rope and are then turned by 90° to be pushed horizontally into the mould wheel. Thus, the cut surface (different colours and designs) becomes visible.
  • Pneumatic core locking and reel tensioning devices
  • Automatic splicer to change wrapping material reels without stopping the machine
  • Servo-driven wrapping material feed rollers and wrapping material knife
  • Variable adjustment of the twisting angle to match the wrapping material memory
  • Variable adjustment of the twist gripper oscillation to match the wrapping material elasticity
  • Servo control with PLC functions
  • Central lubrication of all gear parts including oil pressure control/temperature control
  • All electrical and electronic components are located in a separate switch cabinet
  • Excellent accessibility for operation, maintenance and cleaning purposes
  • Easy operation due to the touch screen
  • Due to the automatic operation, several machines can be handled by one operator
  • System of protection: IP 54


  • Depending on the product, the machine can be synchronized either with a batch roller and rope sizing machine (toffees, hard and soft caramels) or an appropriate extruder and cooling tunnel (chewing gum, bubble-gum, chewy candy)

Optional extras

  • Electronic speed control
  • Photo-electric print registration
  • Ejecting unit for unwrapped products
  • Detection system for manufacturer foil splices of the wrapping material
