Tetra Pak has launched an ice cream filler designed specifically for small to medium producers looking to lower operating costs with minimal investment.
The Tetra Pak Ice Cream Filler A3 produces up to 18,000 ice cream cones per hour and features three enhanced components:
- A cone dispenser with high reliability and capable of handling different cones and cups;
- An easy-to-operate chocolate sprayer with exceptional accuracy;
- A precise lid dispenser improving standardisation.
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.
Peter Lindstrom, category director at Tetra Pak, says, “The ice cream market is extremely competitive. 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 per year on the cone dispenser alone, thanks to reduced wastage.”
The company sees particular demand for the line from customers in Southeast Asia and South America where new producers are entering the market, and also in Eastern Europe where existing manufacturers are looking for more production flexibility.
The cone dispenser, chocolate sprayer and lid dispenser are also available individually for customers who want to upgrade their existing ice cream filling lines.
