Reliable gearmotors in confectione ry production
More than just a sprinkling of drive technology
Bruchsal, Cologne, Anuga FoodTec 2015: Wernigerode-based
Böhnke & Luckau GmbH has specialized in machines and systems
for confectionery production for many years. The company’s
strand extruders use SEW-EURODRIVE gearmotors for reliable and
energy-efficient drive technology.
Böhnke & Luckau manufactures end-to-end systems for producing
chocolate and other confectionery products. The company’s machines
are used in several countries all over the world – from Germany, Austria,
Switzerland and Eastern Europe to the Middle East and Asia. One
example of the products the Wernigerode-based company manufactures
is the machinery used to produce sugar and chocolate strands for
decorating cakes, pastries and other baked goods.
The STR 500 strand extruder is a compact solution for producing and
shaping different types of strand or “vermicelli”. It is available with
working widths of 600, 1300 and 1800 mm and has an output capacity of
100 to 1000 kg per hour. Capacity largely depends on the raw materials
used, which may be sugar-, fat- or chocolate-based.
Output is also affected by the hole diameter of the sieves used. Sugar
and chocolate strands can be produced with a diameter of 0.9, 1.1 or 2.0
mm. The extruder is available from Böhnke & Luckau as a stand-alone
unit or with twin or triple extrusion heads, and all options can be
combined with a cooling tunnel. The sieves can be changed quickly to
enable flexible switching from one product to another.
Drive technology from SEW-EURODRIVE is a major factor in these
machines’ high reliability and energy efficiency. The connected load is
between 10 and 30 kW with three-phase 400 V/50 Hz power supply in
each case. The modular SEW system provides the building kit for a wide
range of combinations of motors and gear units. Fast delivery times,
comprehensive customer service and the flexibility offered by an owner-

machinery and systems for the food industry.
