275x175mm frame for holding multiple individual prototypes

Anyone who develops their own chocolate products knows the problem:
You often receive one or more individual prototypes for moulding tests, in order to test the design.
But if you want to produce multiple chocolate castings, or even a small test series, it becomes a real test of patience. They are also often difficult to handle.
We currently offer the BLUEFLEX® CARRIER in the size 380mm x 295mm, in order to house multiple individual prototypes in one frame and so cast them at the same time.

But as well as the BLUEFLEX® CARRIER, we now offer a new frame, in the standard mould size of 275mm x 175mm. This new frame too also makes it possible to simultaneously produce multiple individual prototypes. 

To achieve this, suitable recesses are milled into the neutral frame design, into which the individual prototypes are then welded. This mould is virtually as stable as a complete chocolate mould, and its size enables the usual manual or machine handling.

This system is ideal for smaller test series in the development stage or development lab, but also for very small series, in particular for products such as filled chocolates or chocolate bars. 

The frame is also suitable for other applications:
With its smooth, neutral top surface, the frame can be used for open metering of chocolate, such as for example using the one-shot procedure. You can also use the frame as a container for collecting chocolate remnants from dosing systems. To do so, when emptying the dosing system, simply lay the container on its smooth side and position it beneath the dosing nozzles.

The UR-0116 universal frame is therefore flexible to use, and perfect for many applications for which there has until now not been an economical solution.

The Fipan fair is taking place in Brazil from 19.07. - 22.07.22. We are looking forward to participating together with our Brazilian colleagues! Free tickets for the fair are available for the first 20 persons who send an email to sales@hansbrunner.de with the subject line: "Free tickets Fipan 2022"! More information about the programme can be found here.

Our subsidiary BRUNNER DO BRASIL has been in existence for more than two years now. Since the early years coincided with the pandemic, getting started was very challenging. Since then, however, there have been a large number of joint projects and the cooperation between specialist departments from both countries is also working extremely well. Read more about the benefits of the cooperation.

Have you ever been annoyed by the fact that delivery times are so long and freight costs so high? Of course, this is especially true for customers in non-European countries. BRUNNER intends to tackle this problem with a new project.

Aeschbach is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. We would like to offer our sincere congratulations and are delighted that Jürg Rogenmoser, the Managing Director of Aeschbach Chocolatier, agreed to be interviewed by BRUNNER.

Here you can watch the Interview of Jürgen Rogenmoser:


Would you like to produce hollow figures yourself?  Or would you like to produce more chocolate Easter bunnies at short notice and you don't have enough production capacity? BRUNNER will be happy to help! We can lend you two centrifugal machines, each with 25 different centrifugal moulds, to increase your productivity or so that you can try this system out.

Gulfood took place from 13 - 17 February in Dubai. BRUNNER was there with two of our representatives on the stand of our new sales partner Aramtec. Here you can read what benefits this brings, especially for customers in the United Arab Emirates.

January of this year sees BRUNNER start a long-term research project with external partners. The aim of this project is to establish a recycling procedure that receives EU certification, so that moulds certified for use for contact with foodstuffs can be produced from used chocolate moulds.

2022 marks a milestone in the partnership between BRUNNER and our subsidiary company Brunner do Brasil. Here you can read what benefits this brings, especially for customers in Brazil and South America.

In one of our recent newsletters we presented BRUNNER’s new universal frame. As well as this universal frame, there is also now another possibility for manufacturing very small series.
