What is the principle and process of the lollipop pouring machine
Lollipops can be made into four different types: solid, striped, layered, and filled. Regardless of the type, they are processed in specially coated molds.
Lollipops can be made into four different types: solid, striped, layered, and filled. Regardless of the type, they are processed in specially coated molds. The size and shape can be kept consistent and add a smooth coating to the surface. The candies processed by this process have good flavor release and smooth taste. A distinctive feature of shaped candy is the tiny needlepoints that remain on the surface of the candy when it is poured. Cast hard candy has become such a hallmark of high-quality candy these days that even some die-cut candies mimic the pinpoint.
The seemingly simple pouring process of the lollipop pouring molding machine actually requires a lot of engineering knowledge to ensure the reliability and product quality of the entire processing process. Boiling syrup is continuously added to a heated funnel, which is placed on a chain mould. Pistons in the hopper meter the syrup, which is placed one by one into the cavities of the mold and then into the cooling tunnel. Typically, the product completes a full cycle in the mold before being placed on a conveyor belt.
Pouring technology is a hard candy processing technology with high production efficiency and low scrap rate. For hard candies, pouring is one step in the process. Candy can go directly to the packaging process, usually individually packaged. The use of pillow packs or twist packs depends on climatic conditions and the desired shelf life.
