1. Autofeed

Weighs and mixes up to 16 dry and liquid confectionery ingredients into a homogeneous slurry. Individual ingredients are fed via a weigh hopper into the mixer and mixed during the fill cycle to produce a consistent slurry. Batches are fed from the Autofeed mixing tank to two reservoir tanks to facilitate a continuous feed to the cooker.

2. Microfilm™ Cooker

Firstly, sugar slurry is dissolved and partially cooked in a plate heat exchanger. Secondly, cooking to final moisture takes place in the Microfilm™ rotor. This creates a thin film of syrup which cooks rapidly without process inversion or burning of dairy ingredients.

3. Colour / Flavour Incorporator

Incorporates colours and flavours into the cooked syrup via a gravity split feed system. Each colouring and flavouring system is specified to match the level of automation required by the customer and the characteristics of the depositing system.

4. ServoForm™ Lollipop Depositor

Sticks are accurately placed then positioned in the solid moulds by an automatic insertion system. The ServoForm™ then deposits syrup at final moisture onto the sticks using a starch-free process, ahead of cooling.

  • Flat Lollipops

    Baker Perkins’ completely automated, high capacity lollipop depositing technology produces a higher quality lollipop, gives the potential for an almost unlimited product variety, and offers greater production flexibility compared to die forming processes.

    The ServoForm™ lollipop depositor can produce a wide range of lollipops in up to four colours, with a multi-component capability providing solid, layered and striped options for a variety of flat and 3D shaped lollipops.

    Flat and shaped lollipops allow one side to be embossed for character merchandising, and a range of profiles – such as rounds, ovals or animal shapes – can be developed.

    Centre-filled lollipops, introducing fillings such as toffee or chewy centres, can be deposited to add a new range of textures to a product portfolio. 

    All products can be produced in sugar-free varieties, and there is also the ability to add medicinal or nutraceutical elements.

    Sticks are accurately placed then positioned in the solid moulds by an automatic insertion system. The ServoForm™ then deposits syrup at final moisture onto the sticks using a starch-free process, ahead of cooling.

    As well as the ServoForm™ lollipop depositor, Baker Perkins’ lollipop systems include automatic weighing, feeding, dissolving, and colour / flavour / acid addition, plus the Microfilm™ Cooker - the industry standard for sugar and sugar-free high boiled lollipops and candies.
