Our Expertise

TEKNOGUM team members provide chewing gum manufacturers to help them develop new products and manufacturing processes considering global trends or improve existing ones.

This is the most significant expertise we have which carries us to the different stage. Most of the chewing gum manufacturers buy gum base instead of producing because this is not a know-how which you can find easily.  

 

Chewing gum properties like elasticity, plasticity, hardness, texture and flavor release are all determined by gum base and in the market if you want your product to be identified than you need to have your unique gum base.

 

As Teknogum we have a win-win solution for the companies who would like to produce their own gum base.

As gum base mixing is new to our customers, we design the layout and infrastructure from the beginning according to our customers’ needs and standards. We identify all necessary utilities before production and target start up without any issue and delay.

At todays standards, only infrastructure and machines are not enough. We also share raw material suppliers and quality control procedures before start up.

Gum base compounding process is done by a kneader and then there are several options for cooling the product. We have two options on kneaders:

  • We manufacture new kneader depending your capacity requirement.

  • We can source and refurbish a second-hand kneader.

Please do not forget to visit our machinery page for further information.

 

After compounding process, you may cool your product either at an aging room, in a cooling tunnel or use an underwater pelletizer. We help you choose the correct option and contact the supplier with technical specifications.

If you are our gum base customer (either you produce or source) it is Teknogum’s responsibility to implement it in your chewing gum, considering your expectations. While implementing the gum base we focus on:

  • Chewing properties.

  • Target costs.

  • Process and packaging efficiency.

Even if you are buying gum base from the market and want to improve your chewing gum formula we would be happy to help you.

When it comes to efficient manufacturing, air handling and mechanical installation are very important. New investors usually try to start up with the information they learn from machine or raw material suppliers. Unfortunately, some new companies figure out the insufficiency of the current conditions just after start up.

As TEKNOGUM we can design and calculate air handling and mechanical installations considering your formulas and equipment. We share all our know how to provide smooth start up for your new facility. ​

When it comes to machinery and tools we provide tailor made service to our valuable customers. 

 

If you are going to invest for a new facility or additional capacity, first we learn your expectation and budget. We are capable of offering:

  • New well known brand machines

  • New high quality but lower budget machines

  • Second hand machinery as is or overhauled. 

 

We investigate all these three options and offer you most feasible option.

Chewing gum production is niche business and it is not always easy to find expertise when it is necessary. Machinery suppliers set up the machine and make it run but to keep it running in the same way is the critical point. You may require us to visit your facility and report any possible improvements. During our service we also train people, so they learn to keep it same way.  

Every geography has different tastes, structure expectations, packaging needs and currency units. We serve our wide knowledge of market expectations based on demographic information to our valuable customers. This information is the key to sell your product to new markets. We combine this information with our powerful distributor network to sell your products at the markets which you have not reached earlier.
