Depositing & moulding

01

Cluster Depositors

Cluster depositors are used to manufacture chocolate clusters or bars, with inclusions.

These units can produce moulded products or achieve a handmade cluster look with the benefits of automation.

The inclusion depositor offers the flexibility of being able to deposit chocolate with inclusions directly onto a belt, or into cups or moulds.

These units can deposit high inclusion rates, and large whole-nut inclusions.

PTL cluster depositors can be supplied as part of a moulding plant, or as  standalone depositors.

They use servo drives for all deposit actions.

The cantilevered design enables the unit to be moved to different cooling tunnels to provide flexibility.

Chip Depositors

A unique feature of these units is the ability to change from dark to white chocolate in 20–30 minutes.

Chip depositors and lines are used to manufacture chocolate or compound chips, wafers, buttons or drops in a very precise and controlled manner, onto a constantly moving belt.

They deposit ribbons onto a belt, where they can then be cut or broken to size. Multiple-colour ribbons can be achieved.

They create a ‘carpet’ of chocolate, which can then be slit and cut to size.

Changing from one size of chip/wafer/button to another is simple, with parts that can be changed quickly and easily.

The mesh deposit configuration ensures optimal belt usage.

Chip depositors use servo drives for all deposit actions.

Moulding Plants

Moulding plants are designed for the automatic production of chocolate bars/tablets and pralines.

The moulding plants can consist of plain chocolate depositors, inclusion depositors and one-shot depositors, as well as cooling sections, plaque feeding and demoulding.

The design includes the ability for simple cleaning and fast changeovers on the line, minimising downtime.

The operation of the line is via a very user-friendly graphic control system.

PTL oneshot depositors are used to create chocolates centre-filed with creams, truffles, caramels, nut pastes or fondants.

One of the unique features is the colour graphic display, which gives operators the control to alter the product on-screen – prior to or whilst in production – simplifying operation and increasing product accuracy.

PTL inclusion depositors are used to manufacture chocolate bars, with or without inclusions.

PTL depositors can be supplied as stand alone machines or as part of a line.
