Those chocolate bunnies? Most of them take life in injection molded plastic molds. Early this year, to get a jump on the Easter season, Hans Brunner GmbH (Glonn, Germany), a manufacturer of plastic molds for chocolate since 1949, installed a new 2300-tonne MX press from KraussMaffei (Munich, Germany).

Chocolate molds aren’t all that Brunner makes; the firm also processes molds made of plastics, especially polycarbonate and polysulfone, for the medical and laboratory technology markets. —[email protected]
