Best-practice high-capacity extrusion lines

Highest performance at lowest cost

With the highest capacity in the world, our high-capacity extrusion lines can produce up to 43,200 ice cream products per hour.

The lines allow great flexibility in switching between sticks and sandwiches, as well as handling up to 4 flavours and up to 12 different coatings.

60% more products can be produced with only 44% more energy which give reduced operational cost as well as improved environmental impact.

With our high-capacity extrusion lines, manpower costs are also reduced by 40%. Thanks to automation of previously manual operations, thanks to easy supervision and thanks to easy machine access for cleaning and maintenance, only 3 operators are needed

Our new, robust lines are based on the best proven solutions in the industry. And these new lines reach a whole new level of extrusion technology innovation, with:

  • Optimal hardening thanks to intelligent product placement and evaporator design

  • A smart combination of robot technology and mechanical design

  • Computer-based synchronization of machines High process repeatability thanks to the computer controls

Tetra Pak Dip and Transfer unit A3 for ice cream

Tetra Pak® Dip and Transfer unit

A whole new level in dipping technology

The new Tetra Pak® Dip and Transfer unit – one of the cornerstones of our new high-capacity extrusion lines – represents a whole new level in dipping technology, with high precision for exceptionally consistent product quality, great flexibility to change products, and trouble-free operation.

Accurate dipping means full control of every dipping parameter: time, temperature and position, which is a key to securing consistent product quality. All kinds of coating processes are possible – from a single chocolate dip to special multi-dips.

With full control, you can make adjustments on the fly, you get gentle handling of dipping media, and no aeration in the dip. There’s even an optional dip-tip control, so you avoid getting a chocolate tip on top of the product.

And the temperature control is maintained even during shutdown, thereby reducing waste.

How it works, ice cream extrusion line

How it works

The lines consist of well-known modules such as the Tetra Pak® Continuous Freezer A2, the Tetra Pak® Automatic Stick single unit, combined with new modules mostly built on well-known technology such as our Tetra Pak® Multilane Wrapper A2 (which now has additional lanes), Tetra Pak® Extrusion Tunnel A3 (which features an additional row of products, making a total of 4 rows), and the Tetra Pak® Dip and Transfer unit A3, where robustness and operator-friendliness are outstanding.
