The Gram Equipment LIFE and LIFE-3D units add extra value to the already delicious extruded ice cream category by enabling you extrude ice cream with large inclusions and shape it in one unit.
Large inclusions to stick and stickless extruded products
Large ratios of ingredients to ice cream are possible
A roll-up addition to any extrusion line
Incorporate any inclusion that can be run through an ingredient feeder
Large cookie pieces can now be added to a stick product
The addition of large inclusions into extruded ice cream products – stick or stickless – is now possible with 3D stamping with LIFE-3D.
Life-unit end products
With the LIFE unit, ice cream producers can now meet the demand for extruded ice cream products with exciting new combinations and designs.
Any large inclusion, even whole biscuits that can be processed through an Ingredient Feeder, can be added to extruded products. The inclusion integrity is kept intact, and the inclusions in the finished products have the nearly same size as initially, before running through the Ingredient Feeder.
The LIFE unit is based on the patented Cryo-ZAT™ (Zero Adhesion Technology) when forming, cutting, and stamping the extruded ice cream.
The LIFE system can run stick products up to 120 pcs/min.
Stickless products can run at similar capacities, depending on the downstream capabilities of the existing product handling systems.
