  • Production volume

    The higher and faster the production volume, the higher the power supply voltage required.

  • Custom needs

    Custom candy cutting machines may require a lower or higher supply voltage depending on your production needs.

    Essentially, there is no fixed supply voltage for this particular machine as it depends on many factors, such as the few mentioned above.

    However, most standard candy cutting machines require a supply voltage range of 220-380 V for best performance and efficiency.


6.Are candy cutting machines expensive?

Generally speaking, investing in candy production equipment is a significant investment in itself.

An entire candy production line requires careful consideration, as candy production has expensive initial costs.

It is worth noting that if you have more additional needs, the manufacturer can usually accommodate them, but your price may be a bit more expensive.
