Variety for trade and industry

Handtmann is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of innovative system technology used in the confectionery industry and in the food processing industry in general. The modular product range includes portioning machines with different performance levels. These become complete process solutions for the production of confectionery and snacks in combination with auxiliary devices for cutting/dividing, forming, dosing and co-extruding. The outstanding feature of the Handtmann systems is the extremely precise portioning accuracy owing to the vane cell feed system. This is a key cost advantage, especially when processing high-quality products. Due to their excellent versatility, these complete systems are suitable for a vast diversity of applications, from soft product consistencies to firm products. Product examples for confectionery are rolled fondant, bars in all variations, cookies, muffins, biscuit bars, chunks of fruit paste, fruit pastries, marzipan, marzipan stars, hearts and other shapes, quark balls, herb bread, ginger bread, confectionery, magdalenas, nut/chestnut/date paste or candies in collagen casing. Examples from the snacks range are bread chips, vegetable sticks, crackers, chin-chin, pão de queijo or energy balls. But it is also possible to implement innovative product ideas such as snacks in alginate casing, and much more. At the ProSweets in Cologne, Hall 10.1., Stand E-009, we will be presenting the latest technology for the production of confectionery and snacks.
