Explorer / Apollo Forming Lines

The Explorer line has been specifically designed for companies who require extremely high capacity in the hard, hard filled candy, and toffee market. The line interfaces well with today’s continuous cookers, while its unique design allows excellent flexibility for customer specific requirements. Nuova Euromec’s Explorer can produce such diverse shapes as simple oval drops to the more complex bar forms. 


  • Wide product range capabilities from simple oval drops to complex bar and novelty shapes. 

  • Engineered to allow easy maintenance of the line and quick change-over times. 

  • Reduced friction in the die chain assemblies results in longer usable lifetimes. 

  • Electronic Speed Controls 

Production speeds: 
EXPLORER 200 - 1800 kg / Hr 
EXPLORER 1500 - kg / Hr

  • Facility of use (operator friendly) 

  • Greater forming die longevity due to pneumatically operated forming cam system 

  • Rapid die change over (Uses Uniplast forming dies) 

  • Higher forming speeds 

  • Total line speed synchronization from filling pump through cooling tunnel. 

  • Hygienically designed for pharmaceutical production applications. 

    Production speeds: 
    MERCURY LINE: 900 - 1,200 Kg/Hr.* 
    MERCURY JUNIOR LINE: 600 – 900 Kg/Hr.* 

    *Depending on candy shape & weight.


Nuova Euromec’s model 119 LAB is specifically designed for use by customers requiring research & development of new products. The system can duplicate typical production runs made on higher capacity systems, but only in small quantities. Expensive raw materials (typically found in pharmaceutical production) will not be wasted. System advantages include: 

  • Compact design making it ideal for those with limited space 

  • Flexible rope sizer capable of operating in either vertical or horizontal mode 

  • System can be quickly re-positioned as the line is furnished with lockable wheels. 

  • Can be supplied with an available cooling tunnel
