GEA Aquarius FlexFormer XHC

Are you ready to bring your lollipop production into the future?

Boost your productivity with the world’s fastest lollipop forming machine. If you want to produce flavorful lollipops faster, the FlexFormer XHC (Extra High Capacity) is ready and waiting to meet your highest standards. This cutting edge flexible forming machine produces lollipop diameters from 20 mm to 35 mm, with up to an amazing 2770 lollipops per minute – offering delicious gum, chewy candy, powder and paste fillings and shapes.

Easy change overs

The FlexFormer XHC doesn’t just offer increased speed and flexibility – it’s also our most efficient, reliable lollipop former yet, keeping you running for longer. Change over times are limited to approximately just 1,5 hours thanks to the new easy change tools, and a turnable stick hopper facilitates easier access to sticks and smooth flows within 5-10 minutes.

Higher outputs – fewer cleaning cycles

The FlexFormer XHC’s polished forming set ensures reduced cleaning cycles, less water usage when running Clean In Place (CIP) and longer production runs per day, depending on your production circumstances. CIP substantially reduces downtime and labour costs, with only 20-30 minutes cleaning after each production run.

Efficient continuous operation

With the FlexFormer XHC’s automatic lubrication system, we ensure an efficient and continuous operation, with less wear and tear due to lubrication on the forming set flaps, and lubrication of the stamp shaft and press bridge via PLC control.

Extensive machine protection

Our machine protection system ensures no damage to the parts during a standard production run, with temperature monitoring of the forming set and motor consumption, as well as an automatic-stop pressure gauge.
