Schaaf's new color printing process for snack extrudates

Direct expanded products such as cheese balls, onion rings or peanut flakes have a highly expanded, soft texture that has a loyal fan base.
In the snack sector, however, many consumers prefer crispier, harder crisps, tortilla or pretzel textures, which can be reproduced on Schaaf extruders with optimised dies and recipes as well as the thin-wall technology.
To achieve the desired visual appeal of the snacks, a colour made from natural raw materials is applied to the strand surface using a newly developed offset printing process.
The printing tools used are made of food-grade materials and can therefore be used without restriction.
The new printing process is particularly suitable in combination with the thin-wall technology introduced a few years ago and well established on the market.
Printed patterns of different lines, grids or dots now give the texturally convincing chip-like extrudates the finishing touch.
The same applies to normal strand extrudates, since the printing unit can be combined with all products that are further processed with a cutting or embossing machine.
In particular, it is able to print different strand widths with patterns.
After printing, the strands or thin-walled extrudates are further processed in a cutting or forming machine, dried and finally flavoured.

Soft Peanut Flips

Flips are already available in many different shapes: curved, straight, long, short – the super soft texture combined with a tasty peanut slurry makes this corn product particularly attractive.
The nozzle is available for all our extruder models.

Spoke wheel shaped snacks

We haven't reinvented the "wheel" - but we are proud of the extraordinary shape definition of this new generation of wheel nozzles, which can be used with a classic corn recipe, a tasty potato recipe or other recipe variants.
The nozzle is available for our extruder models 6400 and 9250.

We say thank you!

After a 2-year Covid break, we finally had the opportunity to meet customers and partners in person at SnackEx Hamburg and present our products live.
We were very happy about the constructive exchange, the talks and meetings.
Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved and especially our customers for this successful trade fair!
