GEA approach to cookies and biscuits production

Precision and efficiency in the production of bakery products represent fundamental pillars in the bakery industry and, in particular, in the production of cookies and biscuits. GEA is distinguished by its meticulous and careful approach; from the design of production lines for cookies and biscuits, to their specific implementation based on the needs of individual customers, every detail is designed to ensure maximum precision, enabling high productions of high-quality cookies quickly and with minimal waste. Moreover, in our technologies, we always strive to maintain hygienic designs to ensure safety in the finished products and streamline the cleaning processes.

lob depositors and extruders

There are hundreds of different types of cookies in the world, all from the different consumption needs found in world markets. For this reason, ensuring flexibility and the ability to easily change from producing one type of cookie to another are key elements to ensure continuous production and cost minimization. With this in mind, we at GEA have developed lobe depositor and extruder systems that can handle different processes based on requirements, minimizing costs and increasing efficiency.

In the case where the cookie type is a sandwich,the dedicated sandwich cookie system automates the processes of biscuit overturning, depositing the filling and then capping, to optimize efficiency and throughput.
