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.

Special Design Stringers

Two Color Stringers

We have built special Woody Stringers to decorate with two colors at the same time. These special Stringers have included versions with an interlaced pattern of two colors, random patterns of two colors and Stringers where ½ of the belt is decorated with one color and the other ½ of the belt is a different color. These Stringers are specially developed to meet the customer’s needs and we would be happy to discuss the possible options with you.

Long Stroke Stringers

The typical stroke of the Woody Stringer is variable from zero to about two inches (50mm). A special design of the Woody Stringer permits a longer stroke up to about four inches (100mm), while maintaining the available options of single loop and double loop patterns. Exceptionally long strokes can also be made with the Woody Stringer. We have built machines capable of a twenty-four inch (24”) long stroke. This Stringer is suitable for certain customers, but there are some limitations.

Random Stringer

The Woody Random Stringer mimics the effects of hand decorating confectionery and bakery items. The Random Stringer can decorate truffles with a delicate thin string or a decadent cake with a heavy layer of chocolate.

High-Speed Stringer

The standard speed range of the Woody Stringer is 20 to 250 cycles per minute for the standard Stringer and up to 500 cycles per minute with heavy-duty construction. Special Stringers have been designed to handle speeds up to 1,000 cycles per minute.
