Modular principle

Molding machines made by trikno

We specialize in the design and manufacture of molding equipment for the confectionery industry. This allows various processes to be combined as desired to expand your product variety.

Performance expansion or concept changes possible at any time
Our modular system offers you many possibilities: the machines can produce different end products and they can be easily integrated, combined or even expanded by "plug-and-play". All machines are intelligent units and are interconnected in a network. New machines can thus be easily integrated into the system.

The production machines can be designed for one of the following specific processes:

The transport system moves the molds freely through the plant on a continuous belt. This allows a plant to be built up step by step.

Our mold machines are defined by three building steps, which describe the degree of automation of the machine in question:

Step 1: Molding machine, vibrating table and cooling spiral to enter the production equipment
Step 2: Additional return belt and heating of the molds to enable a continuous production run
Step 3: Additional automatic forming station to enable fully automated production.

Our machines can be integrated into existing third-party lines, on a oven band or in a coating line, regardless of the age of the existing line.
