Wrapping cardboard around flowpacked chocolate bars

The Lareka BTB25 can now handle flowpacked chocolate bars. Until now, this bar wrapper could exclusively be used for single-stage foil/film and paper wrapping and double-stage cardboard packaging. This upgrade enables running flowpacked chocolate bars through the machine. The customer can choose to wrap a cardboard box or sleeve around the flowpacked tablet.

Wrapping bars with toppings

Packaging chocolate bars with rough inclusions. The Lareka BTB25 meets the demand of the artisan, bean to bar chocolatiers which want to add raw ingredients to their chocolate. With its big size range and versatility, our packing machine is able to wrap all sorts of chocolate tablets. The advantages of the BTB25 are:
• Perfect for crafted, artisan chocolate bars
• Big size range
• Versatile, easy and fast size conversion

NP60 napolitain wrapper

Buffer Belt for NP60 and BTB25 - Greater Convenience and Efficiency

As demonstrated in the video above, the buffer belt facilitates the improvements described because of the bigger surface area available to the operator when preparing chocolate bars and tablets to be fed into the machine. The buffer belt measures 2 x 0.70 metres, which means that the machine will be able to run uninterrupted for 10 minutes if the buffer belt has been filled with a typical NP60 product (a 5g napolitain, for example). These 10 minutes will free up the operator to do other work, like processing the wrapped chocolate products. To summarise, the buffer belt paves the way to consistently achieve maximum output with just one operator - that’s efficiency at its best!

If you want to achieve higher and consistent output from the NP60 or BTB25 with just one operator, the buffer belt is the product for you!

Wrapping small chocolates with inclusions

This versatile chocolate wrapper wraps different sizes of artisanal small chocolates in traditional wrapping styles.

• Perfect for (personalized) napolitains
• The speed could be increased to 60 tablets/min. because of the smaller size range compared to BTB25.
• Versatile, easy and fast size conversion.
