WDS at ProSweets 2022

Winkler und Dünnebier Süßwarenmaschinen(WDS) shows innovations of the confectionery industry, OTC sweets and service solutions at ProSweets 2022. 

Winkler und Dünnebier Süßwarenmaschinen GmbH (WDS) is an international manufacturer of confectionery machines and well known for permanent development and innovation of its production plants.  With its extensive machinery program, they can cover the entire spectrum of deposited sweets with different applications and throughputs and stand for high quality and reliability. 

Winkler und Dünnebier Süßwarenmaschinen GmbH will be present again at ProSweets 2022 in Cologne.  

Globally, WDS is a machinery manufacturer, who has been successful in building molding plants for jellies and chocolates for decades. 

Thanks to their Product Innovation Center, WDS is today a solution partner providing all services to transform a product idea into a successful product launch.  

In addition to an innovative depositor that enables product development and innovative depositing processes, one can look forward to a modern generation of molding plants for gums and jellies as well as chocolates which set new standards according to efficiency, hygiene, and product treatment: The demand has changed from large capacity lines for a dedicated product towards flexible lines which entertain multiple assorted products with a medium production capacity.  

Another focus at ProSweets: the consistent further development of the WDS services and support to become a service partner in confectionery production. WDS stands for excellent After-Sales Services providing life cycle care support, upgrades, and retrofits of existing lines with modern technologies. 

Jellies, Fondant, Toffee 

For most customers, WDS  lines for the production of jellies, fondant and toffee are the first choice. 

WDS Starch Mogul plants  

WDS is experienced in the production of jelly and gum (on pectin basis, gum Arabic, gelatin, agar-agar, carrageen), as well as liquorice, fondant, cream, marshmallow foam and similar masses. A core expertise is the depositing of centre-filled products with e.g., a fruit paste filling. 

With the Mogul Type 660 WDS more than ever has focused on standardization as well as consistent modular design. The result is a highly efficient, long-lasting quality machine, which nevertheless can be offered cost-effectively due to its construction and design features. 

Starchless plants  

For a couple of years now starchless production technology has been used for the manufacturing of toffees, fondant, and pectin jellies. 

Referring to the rapidly growing market for OTC gums and jellies with its high demands for hygienic production plants, WDS has developed a new direction regarding the molding processes. 

While a few years ago silicone technology with all its limits was clearly favored, a change towards polycarbonate molds allowed the development of a completely new, modern, clean, and highly efficient plant technology for fruit gum manufacturing, which has its roots in the molding of confectioneries and chocolates. 


WDS serves small to large sized businesses with capacities from 200 kg/h to 7000 kg/h.  

The ConfecECO is the start-up line for the production of plain, center-filled bars, pralines, and masses with inclusions – also suitable for jellies! 

The ConfecPRO is a chocolate production plant for confectionery manufacturers who want to target a medium to high output quantity. Its modular design together with the decentralized electrical control ensures an easy future growth-oriented expansion at small expenditures. 

These and numerous other topics taken from the diverse world of confectionery are waiting for you at the WDS booth on ProSweets Cologne.
