Volumetric feeders help create chocolatey satisfaction
A confectioner needs reliable feeders to accurately dispense small amounts of ingredients in a new make-your-own candy bar production line.
In June 2010, The Hershey Company, Hershey, Pa., opened a new interactive attraction at its HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE WORLD attraction. Called HERSHEY’S Create Your Own Candy Bar, this hands-on attraction gives visitors the ability to create a customized candy bar with up to three inclusions, operate authentic factory equipment, and design individualized packaging for the candy bar. When designing this attraction, the company needed to ensure a perfectly made candy bar for every visitor, so it selected volumetric feeders to consistently fill the various ingredients into the base bars.
