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.

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.

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.
