Encrusting machine

Hi everyone,

has any of you had any experience with encrusting machines? I am looking to buy one for small productions (~40 pieces/min)

I could find some produced in US and Germany, but their cost is almost double that of - say - those produced by companies like Shanghai Papa.

Could you kindly share your stories in terms of how reliable they are (are there issues with non-stop operation?) and whether there is anything you would recommend to look out for (maybe how easy they are to clean - I guess that may affect their use in specific countries)?

Best regards,

Hi Andrea,

You might consider Anko Encrusting Machines; they make the smaller model that Rheon used to do I heard. We have a client that is considering it.

Another EU based company is Ferneto from Portugal where you could inquire for the smaller scale productions.

There are different suppliers from Germany whose cost is higher but very reliable and easy to use. Their efficiency is good and wastages are lesser. Try to take a good entrusting machine as minor weight variations and breakdowns will cause you bigger losses.

I just know some Company in Germany.  If you want I could give the contract address to you. Maybe they give you with acceptable and cheap  price.

You can rely on Rehon Machines from Japan or You can ask Haas Maincke for customised machine for your capacity.  These two people delivery of the product is good and definitely it will be outstanding in market with your competitor.  More over as other observed wastage and weight variation is less.  Even 15-20% encrusting liquid is possible with these machines.   Normally encrusting liquid is filled around 30% of the biscuit weight.

Thanks everyone for your answers. I was able to find a company (Bralyx) that sells encrusting machines at a reasonable price and has a showroom close to London. That was a deal-breaker for me, because I was able to go there and test the machine with my recipe.
