Extrusion Equipment

Forming Extruders
Extrufood forming extruders are especially designed for the extrusion of various viscous masses, such as:

  • Licorice
  • Fruit gums
  • Fruit snacks
  • Sugar paste
  • Chewy candy
  • Toffees
  • Caramels

These twin-screw, co-rotating extruders have a strong and versatile design in order to adjust to, and process multiple variations of mass. The intermeshing screws are self-wiping, making them easy to clean. The infeed section has the option to be fitted with a twin-screw, counter-rotating design, offering a stable, de-areated infeed which results in a constant mass flow from the extruder.

Furthermore, additional types of infeed units can be designed, depending on the mass in question. The extruder is built onto a single base frame. Additionally, all parts that come into contact with the product are made out of stainless steel. In cases where a multi-colored product is desired we offer two possibilities:

  • If the product mass is still mixable, we can supply a Diemix®. This mixes the mass with color and flavor right after the forming extruder, prior to the die.
  • We can supply a twin-forming extruder which basically consists of two extruders on the same frame. These then feed into a common forming die in order to produce any two-colored product.
