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.

 

1. Neutral universal frame UR-0116

 

2. Milled universal frame with individual prototype

 

3. Finished mould made of universal frame and 5 individual prototypes

 

4. Similar mould used for machine production

Zotter counts among the world’s best chocolate manufacturers, and is one of the most innovative and sustainable businesses in the industry. What experiences has Josef Zotter, founder and managing director of the chocolate manufacturers, amassed in recent years? What does he think about the use of moulds made from recycled plastic? He answers this question, among others, in our interview.

Everyone who develops their own chocolate products knows the problem: you receive one or more individual prototypes, in order to carry out casting tests and test the design. But as soon as you want to use them to produce a larger test series, the problems begin. They are awkward to handle and you need lots of patience to do so. BRUNNER has come up with a solution that makes this situation easier.

The topic of sustainability has been extremely important for us here at BRUNNER for many years now. Here you can read about what we have already successfully implemented in recent years, and also what we plan for the future.

To develop new articles, we're now cooperating closely with our subsidiary in Brazil. For evidence of the successful collaboration between our designers in Brazil and Germany, you need look no further than our new tiger lolly. In this way, Brunner is extending its guarantee of unbeatable quality and modern design to way beyond our national frontiers.

 

Our sustainability mindset has been very important to Brunner for many years. For this reason the residual materials left over from production have for many decades been separated on site and sent for recycling as part of the materials cycle. Thanks to their long service life, our high quality moulds also play a part in conserving resources. We've also provided a solution for the recycling of our used moulds for many years.

 

Each chocolate bunny has its own unique shape and face. "But they are all sweet to bite into." Just in time for Easter, an article about the design of the many different chocolate bunnies from the Hans Brunner company appears in the trade press. So you can start dreaming about Easter.

 

Jeder Schokohase hat seine ganz eigene Form und ein individuelles Gesicht. „Zum Anbeißen süß sind sie aber alle.“ Pünktlich zur Osterzeit erscheint ein Artikel über das Design der vielen verschiedenen Schokohasen der Firma Hans Brunner in der Fachpresse. Damit man schon mal von Ostern träumen kann.

Mould destroyer vibration – Formenzerstörer Vibration

A research project on the damage caused to moulds by vibration was launched in 2018. There are now significant new technical findings and approaches to solving the issue of how to reduce vibration-induced stresses and lengthen the service life of our moulds.

Seit 2018 läuft ein Forschungsprojekt zum Thema Formenschäden im Zusammenhang mit Vibrationen. Mittlerweile gibt es neue technische Erkenntnisse und Lösungsansätze, wie die Belastungen durch Vibrationen verringert werden können um die Lebensdauer der Formen zu erhöhen.

It's with great enthusiasm that we announce the operative launch of our first overseas subsidiary, Brunner do Brasil, in 2020. Our ability to communicate in the local language and the elimination of the hassle of time differences allow us to confidently predict advantages for all phases of our customer projects.

 

Mit großer Begeisterung sollte 2020 der Betrieb unserer ersten Auslandsniederlassung starten: Brunner do Brasil. Covid 19 hat uns leider einen Strich durch die Rechnung gemacht, die Tätigkeit konnte nur eingeschränkt aufgenommen werden. Trotz der Umstände war es uns doch möglich, erste Schritte in Brasilien zu gehen.

 

It’s quick and easy to arrange an online meeting with your point of contact at Brunner. Virtual meetings have proven themselves to be an outstanding tool. We use various platforms and do all we can to ensure that virtual meetings run smoothly.

 

Onlinemeetings können Sie schnell und einfach mit Ihrem Ansprechpartner bei Brunner vereinbaren. Das Treffen auf virtueller Basis hat sich als hervorragendes Instrument erwiesen. Wir setzen dabei auf verschiedene Plattformen und kümmern uns gerne um einen reibungslosen Ablauf.
