Working principle

After forming the solid or center filled ball lollipops or fancy or 3D lollipops a unique take-over transfer wheel has been developed to take the lollipops out of the die set towards the wrapping area. This servodriven wheel makes it also possible to change-over to a different width/diameter lollipop. Together with the easy exchange set for the die set you will be able to change between ball lollipops and/or 3D lollipops in approximately 2 hours. With the new feature steady positioning of the lollipops, from transfer unit via grippers towards the wrapping area, the lollipops will be smoothly taken through the sealing roles. The latest feature we developed is the preheating system which will ensure a lower sealing temperature of the film and avoid the sticking of the film.
