The Monaka wafers that are so popular in Asia are perfectly cast to create their unique shape using WALTER wafer machines. The MARS IC machine is the technology frontrunner in industrial Monaka production in terms of production capacity and process optimisation.
For unique products
The MARS IC machines for manufacturing bowls and snack wafer cups are designed for capacities of ca. 9,000 to ca. 20,000 items per hour depending on the recipe and dimensions. Originally designed for the Asian market, the machine is used to manufacture Monaka wafers. Two pressed wafer bowls assembled together form a three-dimensional shape that can be filled with ice cream or other fillings. There are virtually no limits to the creativity offered by these products in terms of design and filling.
Precision pays off
MARS IC is a fully automatic machine. The wafers are baked in individual nests with precision tools, reducing the waste rate and excess to a minimum. The foaming process takes place in a closed and locked forms in the oven part of the machine. The residue that evaporates as a result is automatically removed and collected in big bags for example. A synchronised vacuum collector machine picks up the products, lifts them from the nests and takes them to a flat belt conveyor, where, after being sorted, they are put down on the transport belt and stacked.
The MARS oven system is based on new IC technology, guaranteeing a uniform distribution of heat in the baking equipment and a low level of heat dissipation from the machine. Energy consumption is thus very low. Thanks to the external smooth surfaces and clean lines, the machine can be cleaned very effectively and quickly. The IC oven has been awarded a prestigious Red Dot Design Award.
