Cut products production line

Series: LC
Process: Layered chocolates production
Output capacity: Up to 500 kg/h

TECNO 3 manufactures complete lines of accessories for the production of layered chocolates, of which the cut cremino is certainly the most typical.
The chocolate is poured continuously onto a feed belt equipped with side guards. The plant is used with excellent results in the production of cut nocciolata, with the hazelnuts layered inside at the desired height (the classic nougat chocolate).
An efficient dosing mixer, which ensures a precise dosage of the chocolate and hazelnuts (or other solid ingredients), can be fitted before the grader choice for the casting.
The cut of the bars containing nuts or other inclusions takes place with precision, with smooth surfaces, without damaging the products added to the chocolate.

Shell Inspector mould control systems

Series: DCS
Process: Mould control
Output capacity: Step- or continuous movement up to 30 moulds per minute

Shell Inspector is an advanced industrial vision system that can easily be installed on new or existing chocolate moulding systems. It recognises the moulds containing products or parts of products that have not been de-moulded and allows you to exclude them from the production flow.
This permanently solves the issues relating to casting chocolate or cream into moulds that are not fully empty, reducing the resulting causes of stops (for example to clean the cold punch), line soiling and the presence of non-compliant outgoing products.

Multiprocess: the first compact Bean To Bar machine

TECNO 3, a company with over twenty-five years of experience in the chocolate sector, presents an absolute novelty in the field that will give a unique flavor to your business.
It’s Multiprocess, the first compact system for producing chocolate from the cocoa nibs to the bar.

Just 2 x 1 meters in size, it can be completely dismounted for quick and easy cleaning.
Multiprocess can be displayed in-store to allow customers to watch the fascinating process of creating chocolate, while conserving the high quality, aromas, and inimitable characteristics of the most noble cacao during all phases of production.
Every step is easily managed with a touchscreen command panel that is both simple and intuitive: cacao nibs are placed in the container and transformed into cocoa mass, then mixed with other primary ingredients.
The paste is then refined and transferred along a viewable belt to the innovative phase of conching, which eliminates excessive acidity.

The continuous cycle lasts about two hours and operates at a low energy level (8 kW), allowing a fi nal chocolate with a fi neness of about 20 microns.
At this point, after being finely sieved and tempered, the product is ready to be molded as desired and is then left to rest in an integrated refrigerated unit below the process area.

Multiprocess can open a world of possibilities for you and your customers to discover the pure goodness of chocolate in the form that you desire, personalized and with hand-chosen ingredients. Because the best cacao deserves to become something unique, exceptional, and yours.
