At the SOLLICH booth in hall 10.1 (booth B020-C029) a chocolate coating machine type Minicoater MC 420 with 420 mm belt width was on display with chocolate. For a greater variety of products, this enrober is equipped with the decorating device type Mini-Decormaticâ MD 420. This machine is running very successfully at small and medium-sized companies setting new standards in the sector of mini enrobing technology.

The special focus of SOLLICH’s research and development activities is on optimising the customer’s production process. In order to realise high machine availabilities and to meet at the same time the increasing hygiene standards, SOLLICH KG sets highest value on an efficient, easy cleaning of the machines. Further improvements have been made in the scope of digitalisation regarding the information exchange between machine operator and the SOLLICH KG. Together with other leading suppliers of confectionery machines, SOLLICH KG has founded the company SweetConnect GmbH. On this platform, users can manage all their integrated production machines at a glance. Documents such as operating instructions, spare parts catalogs and cross-manufacturer maintenance managers are just some of the basic functions made possible with the help of SweetConnect. In conjunction with the ‘Fast Lane’ remote maintenance system, data from the application process are transmitted to optimise services and increase machine availability. Referring to the subject ‘artificial intelligence’ SOLLICH introduced for the first time an approach to self-analysis of their tempering machines. In the future, the self-analysis of the machine will be combined with an automatic adjustment of the temperature values in order to reduce human working capacities and to increase the quality of the tempered chocolate at the same time.

The variety of the equipment featured at each machine has been increased and contributes to an improved quality. This includes, for example, the dew point display within the cooling tunnel or the automatic measurement of the degree of temper in the enrobing machine with the Tempergraph.

Together with its sister company CHOCOTECH GmbH, SOLLICH KG offered its customers the possibility to get the whole manufacturing process at one stop shopping. In this way machines for the complete process including cooking, forming and enrobing were be offered.
