These lines are used to produce big chocolate or compound blocks up to 5 kg weight. Bohnke & Luckau block moulding lines feature highly precise weights with cooling times of up to 150 minutes to provide gentle cooling in several zones. This prevents the buildup of fat blooming for masses with real cocoa butter.
This tablet moulding line is used for the production of chocolate tablets of all kinds. Filled, fruit-and nut inclusions, or plain, there are no limitations. The line is equipped with a heavy ribbon depositor. Spot depositing or one-shot with different masses is possible as well and therefore guarantees maximum flexibility.
Bohnke & Luckau’s shell moulding line can help you achieve the highest possible filling ratio of chocolate products in the industry. The integrated shell maker allows the production of chocolate shells with adjustable thickness. These moulding lines additionally can be equipped with a book-mould and book-demould station to manufacture filled and hollow figures like eggs and balls. The variety of infeeder options make this line one of the most flexible solutions on today’s market.
The One-Shot method is known in the confectionery industry as the process of moulding a filled chocolate piece in one working step. On a Bohnke & Luckau One-Shot line, filled pieces like pralines, tablets, bottles, balls, and many other shapes can be produced. These chocolate products can be filled with fatcream, caramel, fondant, chocolate, liquor, nougat, gianduja, truffle masses, and nut inclusions. What makes this line so special is the precise mould clamping unit and the servo lifting station, which allows filling rates of 70%.
Drop lines are a combination of a drop depositor and a cooling channel. Bohnke & Luckau Drop Depositers offer exact dosing weights through their servo-controlled piston stroke. The cooling channel can be equipped with bottom water cooling, radiation cooling, convection cooling or a combination can be selected by the user.
This line is specifically suitable for the production of jellies and fondant masses. The line is especially designed for the higher temperatures that are needed when dealing with these masses. The plant is based on the circulation of silicon molds. The special feature of our Jelly and Fondant Line is the possibility to mould jelly and after a short changeover time chocolate. This provides maximum flexibility for customer to put jelly products on the market during the hot summer months and concentrate on chocolate during the cold winter months.
The NOUGAMA roaster is especially designed for the processing of croquant brittle crumbs made from calibrated hazelnuts, peanuts, almonds e.g. in combination with sugar. During the processing the sugar is not melted but heated so that the nuts are covered by the sugar to maintain the flavour. This croquant brittle product finally can be ground to a praline filling mass, or can be used for cake or ice cream decoration. A treatment in the Bohnke & Luckau Nougama Roaster improves the flavour of the product and increases its shelf life.
o Bohnke & Luckau offers enrobing machines that are often used to enrobe products that were made on a Bohnke & Luckau Forming Line. Real chocolate and compound chocolate can be used. Other products that can be covered are pastries, chocolate centers and bar centers. They can be enrobed fully, partially, or only from the bottom. A sanitary design provides easy cleaning of the machine. The enrobing line is equipped with a touch screen panel. All settings are easily adjustable. A chocolate circulation system provides a constant tempering degree and an even coating
