Woody Associates, Inc.

Providing automatic decorating equipment to the Bakery and confectionery industry for over 60 years.  As a staple in modern production, the Woody Stringer has the ability to produce zigzag, curved and looped design patterns to bakery and confectionery items in a fully automated system. 

Each Stringer is custom designed to meet the individual needs of the user.  We will utilize factors such as line speed, width and the desired decoration pattern to produce a machine that will exceed expectations and withstand the test of time. The Woody Stringer can be designed to decorate on a conveyor, over a gap or fitted in an enrober.

Many machines in use today are more than 40 years old. In 1954 Woody Associates was founded as George D. Woody Associates, a consulting firm specializing in production issues the confectionery and textile industries faced as they related to automation. Through his experiences as a consultant, George Woody recognized there was a need for automatic decorating machinery.

First produced out of his Atlanta home in 1956, the Stringer proved to be the solution.  This new automatic decorating device was capable of adding zigzag decorations in an array of thicknesses on top of confectionery goods.

Hand Operated Decorator

The Hand Operated Decorator is designed to replace the use of pastry bags or squeeze tubes when decorating with chocolate. The decorating material is pumped under controlled pressure to one or more operators and the only effort required by the operator is to gently squeeze and guide the hand held nozzle. The operator does not have to stop every few minutes to refill a pastry bag or bottle. Therefore, with the Hand Operated Decorator one operator can produce approximately twice as much with less effort.
The Woody Hand Operated Decorator uses standard decorating tubes, which are available with many different flutes. A box of various decorating tubes is included with the machine.

The basic machine is available as a self-contained unit and includes a cast iron pump with a pressure selector system, internal heating and control, pressure and temperature gauges, a sanitary stainless steel hood, double outlet adapter and valve, two high pressure hoses and a box of 48 different decorating tubes.

Alternatively, the Woody Hand Operated Decorator can be provided as an add-on design. Typically this unit is attached to a supply kettle and pump assembly and uses the hot water from the supply kettle for warmth. The add-on unit disassembles easily for cleaning.
