Cracking is normally caused by either the cooling is to rapid or what you are enrobing is too cool in relation to the chocolate temperature.

Try the following:
Raise the tunnel tempertaures abit and slow down the tunnel speed.
Check the temperature of the wafer .. too cold will cause cracking.

You have to experiment.
Thank you for your suggestion! I will do some experiment later.
