Dies and moulds world covers various pasta formats, including long-cut, short-cut, soup-size pasta and lasagne. Not only do we provide inserts for regular pasta, but also for gluten free pasta in order to satisfy all customer needs.

Shaping, Coloring and Appealing

Inserts play a big role in product shaping but also in the coloring and general appeal of the pasta at the end of the process. In fact, pasta made with teflon inserts has a glossy appearance and a bright colour, whereas the use of bronze inserts gives the product a greater porosity and a lighter shade.

The inserts provided by GEA cover the following pasta formats:

  • Long-cut: spaghetti, vermicelli, bucatini etc. 
  • Lasagne: lisce, ondulate, ricce etc. 
  • Nest: tagliatelle, fettuccine, pappardelle etc.
  • Short-cut: penne, fusilli, cavatappi etc. 
  • Soup size: quadretti, routine, tubettini etc. 
  • Filled short-cut: tufolo, cannellone, lumaca etc. 
  • Quick cooking and pre-cooked: pennine rigate doppie, cornetti rigati, eliche etc.
  • Fancy shapes: inserts to reproduce every shape you can think of. 
  • Gluten free: a selection of inserts for every category of pasta shape that can be used in the production of gluten free pasta.
