Ice cream molding – We offer equipment both for rotary and inline molding, depending on the customer’s priorities. Rotary molding has the main benefit of reducing product waste, while inline molding enables more process steps when producing complex products like multiple flavour fillings.
What’s unique about ice cream molding machine is that we could fill product at minus 3°C – 5°C employing a filling nozzle which starts in the bottom of the mold and gradually rises since the mold is filled. Since the liquid is extremely viscous, it could easily carry inclusions. Furthermore, more air could be incorporated, passing it on a pleasantly smooth mouth feel and much less mix consumption. Actually, this technique makes it possible to generate a molded soft ice cream of similar quality for an extruded or filled product. Filling such cold product also boosts capacity of the line!
In addition, we offer the most efficient stick inserter on the market! A smart investment in precision that quickly provides you with instant payback by reducing produce waste.
Production is rendered a lot more efficient by our smart automation solutions, which sound the alarm if you have a malfunction inside the automatic popsicle making machine, enabling the operator to intervene rapidly and correct it.
The first molds were produced in copper, a material very malleable and extremely easy to work with. But due to its rapid oxidation was quickly substituted for the stainless.
The very first molds produced were the basket molds, simply because this is how they produced soft ice cream during those times. All across Italy ice cream manufactures installed several tanks of freezing, with normally more hyoagy 50 basket mold on each tank.
Inside the mid-sixties, the first automatic inline machines were designed and installed in Italy and for this reason innovation the business started the creation of the inline molds.
Early in 1983 Sergio Ranieri began in the organization and began a business relationship using the main machine producer in Italy (Mark-Cattabriga-Otem-Carpigiani etc.). Within a few years the commercial ice lolly making machine increased significantly and at the same time the range of the mold type produced was expanded with the creation of the rotary molds along with trays for oval machines.
In 1987 being a natural step as a result of increase of orders, the welding processes were automated with the development of mechanical procedures, a couple of years later the very first group of freezing mold cup in 254 SMO was produced.
