5.How does the lollipop maker work?

Ideally, the working principle of a lollipop making device is quite simple. In other words, it needs to integrate multiple aspects to provide seamless operation throughout the manufacturing process.

It is worth noting that the machine works with many other integrated devices to perform various functions at different stages.

An overview of how the machine works requires the following.

In general, however, the process begins with melting components, which consist of sugar-containing elements such as sucrose. Other ingredients include water and glucose.

Heating is performed in the candy cooking machine at a set temperature to form a uniform syrup.

Essentially, this is to enhance the flavor of the lollipop while reducing the moisture content of the syrup.

After cooling, it then goes into the molding unit. Molds come in different shapes, sizes and designs depending on your preference.

The next step is to stuff the lollipops into the molds using a stick stuffing machine.

Finally it goes to the lollipop wrapping machine for the final stick.


6.What is the standard capacity of a lollipop machine?

Each candy making machine manufacturer has different product specifications. The standard capacity of ESM's lollipop production line is at 280Kg/h, and the servo lollipop depositing line is higher with a minimum specification of 500kg/h.

There are a number of important factors that go into the capacity of lollipop manufacturing machines and lines, including

  • Power rating

    Power rating is one of the variables that determine the specific production capacity of a lollipop machine. A machine with a higher power rating is likely to have a greater production capacity and vice versa.

  • Size

    Most candy making machines are designed for high volume production needs and therefore may have a higher capacity.

  • Automation

    Technically speaking, fully automated units are bound to produce more than semi-automated units.

  • Customization

    You can get custom designs that are customized to your production requirements.

7.What is the cost of a lollipop making machine?

As with standard capacity, there are very different factors that influence the price of a lollipop making machine.

  • Customized requirements

The price of lollipop manufacturing equipment ranges from about $15,000 for a simple machine, or you can find high-end manufacturers, each candy making machine manufacturer will give their quotation, it is recommended to ask them directly for the relevant price to get the most accurate information.

8.Why source lollipop making machines from China?

Many Chinese manufacturers of candy manufacturing equipment combine American, European and domestic technology with Chinese manufacturing advantages.

This alone gives Chinese companies the upper hand over all their competitors worldwide. As a result, most Chinese candy manufacturing machines are cost competitive with American and European made machines.

You will find that most European and American companies have OEM partners in China. However, with this business model, you will pay more for your candy making machines.

In short, it is cost effective to source candy machinery from China. Always strive for the best deal.

  • Never take shortcuts in any aspect of operating the machine. Instead, always adhere to the correct procedures.


17.How do I insert the lollipop stick into the lollipop machine?

Typically, lollipop making equipment is integrated with a stick insertion machine filled with specific types of sticks. The rods are configured in the machine to ensure that they are placed in each cavity of the hard candy mold.

Technically, the hot syrup flows into the mold cavities of the jet and the stick inserter immediately places each stick on each cavity.

When finished, the syrup is cooled at room temperature to allow the syrup to cure properly so that the sticks are properly wedged.


18.What factors should I consider when buying a used stick machine?

For many customers who do not have a large budget, choosing a used machine is a good option. But buying a used lollipop machine is a very difficult task that requires a specific study and analysis of the used machine and a very large number of factors to consider. And there is no follow-up corresponding guarantee in quality and maintenance, so we prefer to recommend you to choose to buy new equipment, especially with a candy making machine manufacturer with years of experience and good reputation like us.


19.Can you customize a lollipop making machine?

In most cases, customers have their own unique needs.

You can choose the machine that will meet your design and customize your unique machine based on the equipment already available.

In this case, you can always consider providing the manufacturer with a blueprint of your preferred custom machine design.

The manufacturer evaluates the feasibility of the design and approves or makes the necessary adjustments to the provided blueprints.

Once approved, the manufacturer proceeds to build the machine according to the custom design specifications.
