All PTL equipment is designed for your particular factory to enable easy cleaning and lightning-fast changeovers. Each module comes with picture-mapped sanitation details.
Yes. We supply single (modular, integrated, or engineered) machines and can also collaborate with you to automate existing equipment.
All our equipment is designed to make it easy to use. From forming to packing, you’ll typically need only two or three operators, and some lines can be operated with just one person.
We can create machinery to suit any barline size, but our most common slab widths are 16”, 24”, and 36”.
Yes – our slab line machinery and full slab lines are modular and can be adapted to suit your existing space, lines, and workflows.
Your site will need electricity, chilled glycol, factory heating (depending on the forming-process requirement), compressed air, and hot potable water for belt washers.
You can make almost any bar type on PTL machinery including nut, protein, granola, and candy – with, or without chocolate coatings or bottoms. If you have a product in mind, we can help you create it.
Yes. We take pride in designing slab line machinery and full slab lines that are user-friendly and easy to operate, from the engineer to the operator.
