Carugil Preforming line

Production and sizing of a great variety of ropes

The CARUGIL pre-forming line has been conceived to deliver a continuous and consistent rope, either solid or center-filled, to the down-stream lollipop Forming Machine.

It is composed by the following machines:

  • Laminator model CLC-70.

  • Extruder model CSTR (optional).

  • Batch roller model CBC-120. Rope sizer model CRC-4.

  • Main control cabinet for all the machines above.

Laminator CLC-70

Laminator or hard candy

The automatic laminator CLC-70 is designed to receive batches of hard candy, chewy candy, toffee or caramel and deliver them in the form of continuous leaf to one or more horizontal batch rollers for the production of solid or centre-filled hard boiled sweets.


  • Maximum capacity:  70 Kg/batch

  • Water jacketed hopper and laminating roller, both covered with teflon.

  • Settled on turntable to feed multiple batch rollers.

  • Inclined conveyor belt with regulation to discharge on the batch roller.
