It all starts in the kitchen. Here’s where candy masses such as nougat, caramel or binder masses are created. Precise measurements of wet and dry ingredients are added, mixed and heated automatically according to your recipe. Additional ingredients such as nuts or cereals can also be incorporated to your specifications.
The next step is forming. Our range of double and single slab formers deposit layers of candy on the infeed of the cooling tunnel. These layers have a thickness of between 3 and 25mm, resulting in accurate and uniform bars of one or more layers.
After the slab has been formed, it’s time for conditioning. The slab is transported through the cooling tunnel so that the mass is thoroughly cooled and stable.
The final step is the cutting of the candy bar. A Tanis slitter, spreader and cutter can create perfectly sized candy bars. If clients require any final enrobing of the product, Tanis works together with reliable partners to provide the equipment for this.
This, in a nutshell, is the T-Bar process for candy bar making.
Tanis offers T-Bar equipment in different capacities, tailored to your needs. Equipment for slab ranges from 300mm up to 1200mm can be offered to our customers.
