Thanks to their Product Innovation Center based at the WDS headquater in Rengsdorf/Germany, WDS is today a solution partner providing all services to transform a product idea into a successful product launch. Most projects start at the Product Innovation Center where the WDS team of food scientists tests new product concepts using the WDS lab equipment.
Globally, WDS is the only machinery manufacturer, who has been extremely successful in building molding plants for jellies and chocolates for decades. In addition to an innovative depositor that enables product development and innovative depositing processes, one can look forward to a modern generation of molding plants for gums and jellies as well as choco-lates which set new standards according to efficiency, hygiene, and product treatment: The demand has changed from large capacity lines for a dedicated product towards flexible lines which entertain multiple different products with a medium production capacity.
Another main focus at ProSweets: the consistent further development of the WDS services und support to become a service partner in confectionery production. WDS stands for excellent After-Sales Services providing life cycle care support, upgrades and retrofits of existing lines with new technologies.
Jellies, Fondant, Toffee
For most customers, WDS Mogul lines for the production of jellies, fondant and toffee are the first choice.
WDS Starch Mogul plants
WDS is experienced in the production of jelly and gum (on pectin basis, gum arabic, gelatine, agar-agar, carrageen), as well as liquorice, fondant, cream, marshmallow foam and similar masses. A core expertise is the depositing of centre-filled products with e.g. a fruit paste filling.
With the Mogul Type 660 WDS more than ever has focused on standardization as well as consistent modular design.The result is a highly efficient, long-lasting quality machine, which nevertheless can be offered cost-effectively due to its construction and design features.
For a couple of years now starchless production technology has been used very successfully for the manufacturing of toffees, fondant and pectin jellies.
Referring to the rapidly growing market for OTC gums and jellies with its high demands for hygienic production plants WDS has developed a new direction regarding the molding processes.
While a few years ago silicone technology with all its limits was clearly favored, a change towards polycarbonate molds allowed the development of a completely new, modern, clean and highly efficient plant technology for fruit gum manufacturing, which has its roots in the molding of confection-eries and chocolates.
