I'm in the market for a continuous tempering machine with a tank capacity of 25kg or higher that has the capability to add on an enrober in the future. I've read all of the posts here from 2012 and 2013, but don't see anyone that has mentioned the Bakon Choco-lution. Does anyone have experience using this machine in their production facility? I'm mostly looking for opinions from users, not sellers (unless you're one and the same!).
My understanding is that the Bakon tempering machine has only been available for a little over a year, so it probably just hasn't worked its way into enough hands yet. That having been said, I've also found it a bit curious that no one ever seems to even mention it. Really, there are people in the witness protection program who get more attention that this unit.
When it comes to continuous tempering machines FBM and Selmi always seem to get the lion's share of attention. They're both solid companies. But I just find that odd. You would think people would talk about other tempering machines from other companies (Savy Goiseau, Sollich, LCM, Bravo, Pomati, GAMI, Frichoc, etc) at least a little. Perhaps Selmi and FBM have just been significantly more aggressive with their US marketing? I don't know.
If you didn't know better, you couldn't be blamed for thinking that this is a 2-horse race. Except it's not.
