New ice cream filler 'could save €69,000 per year'

22 February 2016

Tetra Pak has launched an ice cream filler that produces up to 18,000 cones an hour. 

The company’s Ice Cream Filler A3 is also able to handle different cone and cup sizes. It comes with an accurate, easy to operate chocolate sprayer, and a lid dispensor. 

“The ice cream market is extremely competitive,” said Peter Lindstrom, Category Director at Tetra Pak. 

“Our customers face the challenge of providing quality products to consumers while keeping costs down. Our new filler offers an effective solution which improves cone handling and delivers different products on one machine. 

“This significantly cuts operational costs – our pilot tests show that customers can save up to 69,000 Euros per year on the cone dispenser alone, thanks to reduced wastage.” 

These features help manufacturers boost efficiency by reducing waste, minimising stops and increasing overall speed, while ensuring product quality. Furthermore, the modular design of the machine offers significant production flexibility with simple setup and easy equipment changeovers. This allows customers to switch smoothly between different cone sizes or cups, as well as ice cream flavours, in just a few minutes.
