As of January 2021, 100 years after its foundation and again under its well-known original brand name, the HANSELLA GmbH is continuing to serve its worldwide customers. A century of experience and passion for the confectionery processing industry as well as decades of dedication to our filling & capping portfolio helped us to continuously improve and strengthen our reputation as a reliable partner for our customers. The company located in Viersen (Germany) was acquired by Robert Bosch GmbH in 1966 and with the integration of the filling & capping machine business of former Strunck in Cologne, a further very important pillar was added to the portfolio of the Viersen site. Beginning in 2021 the company joined the ROTZINGER Group .With this extension, the ROTZINGER Group provides processing, conveying, buffering and packaging solutions for confectionery, bars, chocolate and food plus filling & capping, track & trace and cartoning machinery for OTC products, diagnostics, dietary supplements and cosmetics.

The rolling and scoring production line consists of various elements. The starting point is the pre-extruder, where the texture is smoothed out, and transported to the pre-cooling tunnel. Inside the following extruder, infeed rollers transfer the mass to the extruding screws at a speed optimized for the processed gum product. The screw feeds the product to the extruder head, producing an endless slab. In the rolling and scoring mill, the slab thickness is continuously reduced to its final size.
