Candy, Confections and Gummies Take a Ride
Thayer Scale sanitary weigh belts (confectionery scales) are used in the manufacture of infused fruit confectionery, gummies and multivitamins. Filled molds are refrigerated and when the contents are solidified operators remove trays of molds out and release them onto a conveying system.
Thayer Scale weigh belts are used to move the product along the flat surface so it can be coated with a light powder sugar or glycerin applied to ensure individual pieces don’t clump together. The coating also keeps the texture smooth without it getting slimy. The balance is critical, too much coating can cause agglomeration problems.
The trend in Cannabis products and consumer interest in its health benefits is a positive thing for Thayer Scale. Some of its customers in the confectionery segment are getting involved in the manufacture of CBD gummies and health-based health products like vitamins and nutraceuticals. This is a terrific growth opportunity for Thayer Scale, the company’s expertise in weigh belt equipment for confectionery production can be transferred to support this emerging market.
