Flaking machines

Back to overview


The SNIPPER I and II are the smallest and most compact Prefamac flaking machines for flaking one chocolate block into a specific type of flakes, also called -snippers-. The blocks can be up to 47 centimeters long. Different lengths of flakes can be obtained with different blades. The result with type I and II is identically the same. Compared to type I, type II is a design model, in which all parts are built-in. As a result, type II is larger and heavier than type I.
