Loynds drop roller machinery lines given key design revamp

UK-based confectionery machinery business Loynds has revealed an updated version of its drop roller systems, in response to customer demands, reports Neill Barston.

As the business explained the series is suitable for low volume artisan candy manufacturers, or for recipe development in candy laboratories. The brass rollers are quickly interchangeable meaning a variety of shapes can be made on a single piece of equipment.

Drop Roller Candy Machines are considered a low cost solution to producing die-formed hard candy sweets, with the Loynds system capable of being used to produce either solid single colour candies or two-colour layered candies. A set of brass rollers with the candy design engraved into them continuously forms a ribbon of candy into the required shape.

As the company noted, the formed candy is then left to cool before the sweets can be broken up, sieved and then processed further or packaged. The brass rollers can be engraved in various shapes including ovals, rounds, balls, oblongs, pears, lemons, flat drops or various other novelty shapes.

Furthermore, some bar products can also be made on specially designed rollers, and additional machines can be added to make this a more automated process if required. The system works on an output of upto 150kg of products per hour, depending on types of sweets.

Speaking on the equipment series, the company explained that it held particularly strong potential for the business looking for flexible production equipment lines: “The Candy Drop Roller has become one of our most popular machines next to the mini candy depositing machine, for use in the production of hard candies, sugar free lozenges and candies infused with THC & CBD in the USA.

“After speaking with our customers we have redesigned the machine, it now requires no tools, variable speed. The roller dies can be quickly changed over to different designs in less than two minutes during production, this also makes it easier to clean.”
