BRUNNER presents opportunities for producing very small runs

Every business owner who develops their own chocolate products knows the problem:

If you want to design your own chocolate items, you receive individual samples for testing, and then have to order a complete mould set, including tool costs.

Businesses with large production systems then have the problem that they can only test the sample manually.

And businesses with small-scale or manual production systems have the problem that the tool costs are too high, meaning it’s not economical for them to design their own products.

Hans Brunner GmbH has developed solutions for both cases:

  • Universal frame UR-0116 (size 275mm x 175mm)

  • Blueflex Carrier UR-0109 (size 380mm x 295mm)

Both frames have standard sizes, meaning they are suitable for many production systems. In each case, individual samples are placed in the respective frame.

A manufacturer with large-scale production facilities can use it to run small test series (for example in the lab).

It now also becomes economical for smaller manufacturers to design their own products, because the universal frames are flexible in their use, with businesses only having to bear the low tool costs for one individual sample. The Blueflex Carrier can additionally also be used for multiple individual samples. And the Blueflex Carrier is also available with different recess sizes, meaning it can be used to manufacture both larger and smaller products.

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.
