Any one can guide on which chocolate spray gun to purchase?
Which one is recommended:
Prefamac Guitar Cutter, Bakon USA, Martellato, Dedy, JKV ?
i see plastic guitar cutters everywhere.. any example of steel one?
is the base of steel in this ?
This states - High qualityaluminum alloy Base delivers precision
tcflsales.com guitar cutters are expensive ones... Further they offer only domestic shipping
Hi! Any website for it?
Can anyone recommend a Good Guitar Cutter to purchase?
Should i purchase with stand / Without Stand?
How many frames do we need?
Looking for urgent revert from Seniors..
Thanks for your reply. I have already read that post and its a very useful one. Do you think if we are using a good packing with thermocols on the sides and top/bottom, we still have a requirement for aluminum bubble wrap?
We didn't used an aluminum bubble wrap insulator. That seems to be the only difference. Further how about Techni Ice from Australia. Any knowledge on that?
We want to sell chocolates online. However, not able to figure out if chocolates can survive for 48 hours even with gel ice.
I have tested this with Techni Ice gel ice, however chocolate melts in 48 Hours and remains good only for 24 hours.
Does any one has any other solution? We tested with good insulated packing box properly sealed. Ice was good enough as per box space.
Is it better to use compound chocolate for courier purpose?
What about this
" Their experience is that the pump mechanisms in the Semis (Colors and Pluses, can't talk about Tops) are underpowered and they are having problems getting consistent doses out of the measured depositors. I don't know if this is a problem with other makers' machines but it is certainly something I am looking into.?"
I don't see comments from anyone about any other machines...
every now and then i blow with compressed air the elements, the cooling system and check that all the electrical connection are tight (if you understand engineering a bit you will know that electricity "vibrate" and heat expand /contract cabling so something, sometimes could get loose)
I had asked these questions with Pomati and Selmi and they wrote - Machine is maintenance free and infact Pomati even wrote, they have never got any complaint related to machine break down
What kind of maintenance is required for FBM machine? For how long have you been using?
Haven't seen replies from people using Selmi or Pomati..
"Definitely they use the same concept, but the technology behind is complex and each of them have their own style. I have read in this forum that if a Selmi breaks (seldom) it is a lot of "computerized" things to change..."
This makes those machines more superior than FBM machines.
Still waiting for replies from chocolatier.
As far as my research goes, i believe only price is the factor between all these machines without taking into consideration the accessories. Rest all these machines are the same.
I am inclined towards FBM as it can support accessories. However, Selmi and Pomati looks more professional but they can't support enrober. However, enrober is not my requirement initially. So don't know whether i should buy FBM which supports enrober or buy a second machine later to get enrober equipment.
Any reasons for selling..
This sounds good.. Even i am finalizing FBM..
Waiting for more comments before i finalize..
You have faced so many issues in FBM in a year... ?
Also, am i right, that it takes lot of time in the morning to start and lot of time in tempering the chocolate?
Waiting for replies from Chocolatiers
I would also like to add Bravo Tempering Machine and Pomati T8 / T10 in the above
I am sure, this question might have been discussed many number of times. However, every customer has got it's own requirement.
Our 1st concern is: Machine should be Good in Working, Should be Easy to Handle, Operate, Clean and Should give best results.
Our 2nd important concern is: Machine should have longer durability for all parts. There should be a good Technical Support when required, Quick and Reasonably Priced parts. I don't know if i should focus on this or not.
Our 3rd concern is: Machine Accessories.
We would like to know which machine we should go with:
Selmi One / Color Ex
Selmi Plus or Selmi Plus Ex (Only because of enrobber attachment)
Wheel Machines (say Mol D'art or Bacon USA or any other)
I have mentioned Selmi Plus only because of enrobber attachment. Otherwise i believe above mentioned FBM and Gami support enrobber attachments for the above models
I am simply confuse as which machine i should go with. We believe at a cost of $10000 we can only get automatic tempering machine with a capacity of around 10-15kg. Further some machine may not offer enrobber attachment which may be required in the future.
I have mentioned Selmi Plus and Ex above because they offer enrobber attachments from this machine onwards. In case, users recommend this, we can think of increasing the budget or the other way out is to buy small machine initially and then to go with a bigger capacity one once the business is established and good operations are there.
Looking for urgent replies from users.
Company owners / Distributors please don't participate in this forum.
Which Tempering machine do you suggest is better when compared FBM , Semi or Pomati in 10 -15kg range ?
I am finding this strange
"The only other option, is to approach local manufacturers / suppliers around you for a similar part. It goes without saying that the part would need to be as close to the original as possible."
Why not to use original parts from the company.
Is there anything wrong with the machine? Can you please share your experience with Pomati Machine?
Is styrofoam box a good option instead of insulator bubble wrap or inserting thermocols on sides / tops / bottom serves the purpose?
Can you please clear this
and the product being shipped was wrapped in plastic bags to protect it from condensation.
Sorry, the price $10,000 quoted by me does not includes enrober or any other accessories. My aim, either to get a machine at around $10,000 or +/-$3000 and get enrober and other accessories later or to buy a machine currently which does not supports enrober and get a 2nd machine with enrober after a year of business establishment.
Looking for opinions of the best machines and best options.
