Whatever shape you would like to make, whether ball, flat or three-dimensional, GEA Aquarius has with the FlexFormer range the right machine for the job.

The Flexformer machine has a sugar rope detection system which ensures that when no sugar is entering the format set no stick is feeded towards the die set. The solid or center filled ball lollipops or fancy or 3D lollipops are formed in the format set. The format set and forming machine are designed to enable a very flexible, quick changeover between sizes or shapes. With an easy exchange set you will be able to change from size or shape within 1 hour.
Very flexible, quick changeover between sizes or shapes of lollipops are possible as well as easy adjustment for different stick lenghts.
