NETZSCH Confectionery exhibits at ProSweets 2015

Over the past few years, NETZSCH Confectionery has established itself as an innovative, economically-oriented supplier of machines and systems for processing confectionery masses and their raw materials.

Mambo® –  the absolutely innovative solution for the production of confectionery masses, such as fillings, compounds and spreads, designed to achieve the highest level of hygiene and efficiency. Quick product changeover and an integrated cleaning system make this compact system unique on the market.

Rumba®  – the efficient solution for the production of chocolate masses and premium compounds.

Salsa® – the cost-effective line for the preparation of compounds, fat-based glazes and icings, fillings and spreads that also provides for a high level of quality and productivity.

Tango® – the new solution from NETZSCH for grinding cocoa nibs to cocoa mass is a result of the integration of the company Dr.-Ing. Bauermeister. The compact system combines a beater blade mill and an LME agitator bead mill in single passage operation, with clear advantages with respect to economic efficiency and handling.

We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to discover our innovative products and learn about our technologies at ProSweets!

The ProSweets 2015 exhibition will be held in parallel with the ISM Trade Fair at Koelnmesse in Germany from 1-4 February 2015. We look forward to welcoming you to our Stand No. G040 H049 - Hall 10.1.

Mambo® – The innovative processing system combines economical production of confectionery masses with small batch sizes

With its Mambo® processing plant and its integrated design, NETZSCH Confectionery was focused on the highest possible quality standards and hygienic requirements. The plant components are completely enclosed and operate under a constant slight overpressure. Therefore, no contamination can enter from the outside and no foreign matter can get into the production cycle. The Mambo® has a two-level design and can accommodate all of the required equipment in a space of about 13 square meters.

Equally important for a high level of product safety is the capability for fast and uncomplicated, but nonetheless thorough internal cleaning: the more often, the better. A good prerequisite for short intervals is the Mambo®'s pipeline system, which interconnects its components. Due to the compact design of the plant, the pipeline is 20 to 30 percent shorter than for other plants of comparable size. After each transfer process, the pipelines are cleaned via a two-circuit pigging system.

With the regular cleaning of the entire system integrated into the production process, the time required for changing products is also drastically reduced. In the CIP mode (Cleaning in Place) only very small amounts of fat, which are part of the relevant confectionery mass anyway, are pumped through all components of the plant in defined sequences. For this process, a total of 25 to 100 liters is sufficient and can be used again later in another production batch. Depending on the size of the plant, the time required is reduced from several hours to a few minutes; and it doesn't have to be disassembled or cleaned by hand.

With the innovative design of the Mambo®, NETZSCH Confectionery has squared the circle: the hygienic standard and product safety are significantly higher than before, and at the same time, the required expenditure of time and costs are considerably lower.

About NETZSCH Confectionery

The NETZSCH Group has 140 years of experience in the development of technologies for crushing challenging raw materials and their machines and equipment are among the best in the world in this area. It is no accident that this is especially true for the processing of sugar and cocoa.

Ten years ago NETZSCH Confectionery introduced the first system to the market that was specifically designed for the production of compounds and chocolate – the ChocoEasy®. Both the plant design and the name still exist today, but ChocoEasy® now designates the machines for the craft and very small batch sector, while the plants for industrial production are marketed under the trade name Rumba®. Included in the NETZSCH Confectionery portfolio are three processing systems for confectionery production – ChocoEasy® / Rumba®, Mambo® and Salsa®.

In March 2014, NETZSCH acquired the Hamburg company Dr.-Ing. Bauermeister, specialist for the development and construction of beater blade mills. The company will operate under the name NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH in the future and will expand and focus its machine portfolio on the production of cocoa mass from cocoa nibs. NETZSCH has combined the beater blade mills developed and manufactured by Dr.-Ing. Bauermeister with its own LME agitator bead mills to create the Tango® processing system. Up to four tons of ultrafine cocoa mass can be produced per hour from pre-crushed and finely ground cocoa nibs.

NETZSCH at Interpack 2014

NETZSCH Counts on Innovation: The Mambo® is introduced at Interpack 2014

Selb, 28 May 2014 - Every three years, Interpack takes place in Düsseldorf, Germany. It is the leading global fair and most important driving force for the packaging industry and all related process technologies. In particular, Interpack is the most important show for suppliers to the Confectionery industry. This year, 2700 exhibitors from more than 60 countries presented their latest ideas, innovative concepts and technological advances.

The Business Unit Grinding & Dispersion displayed their machines at three different stands, primarily because of the different applications that were covered. The NETZSCH Vakumix stand was for customers in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry. The NETZSCH Confectionery booth was for customers in the cocoa and chocolate processing industry, and the third stand was the NETZSCH-Dr.-Ing. Bauermeister booth. All three exhibits received a high number of visitors.

The highlight of the NETZSCH Confectionery booth was the newly developed Mambo® production plant which was introduced to the public for the first time at Interpack. New and existing customers alike were highly interested in the Mambo® with its completely enclosed plant design, and coordinated machine components with integrated cleaning processes. The presentation was supported by living doll actors with the theme, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”. This was a big attention-getter.

The Confectionery department is particularly happy about the placement of two orders during the show. The Conche CE 1500 and the PreCutter were sold on the exhibition grounds. In addition to the Conche, an LME 60 was also sold. A model of this machine type, the LME 30, was displayed together with Beater Blade Mills from Dr.-Ing. Bauermeister in the booth NETZSCH-Dr.-Ing. Bauermeister.

NETZSCH Vakumix is also more than satisfied with the exhibition. A considerable number of high quality leads were collected. And, after the takeover of Vakumix by NETZSCH only as recently as March, many long-standing and partly uncertain customers could convince themselves that NETZSCH Vakumix is a reliable partner for their future business.

At present, all exhibition reports are being evaluated and many offers are being written. We can easily say that the exhibition was very successful for the Business Unit Grinding & Dispersing.
