Hedstrøm describes a new method of feeding chocolate to the enrober that allows 50% energy savings compared to earlier machines when an Energy tempering machine is put into the energy enrobing circuit 

Products that can be coated by chocolate (enrobed) are wide-ranging; from biscuits and doughnuts to bars such as Mars' Twix.
