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.

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.
