This doesn't exactly look like a food-safe facility, but I guess the laws are a little more relaxed in whatever country this was shot in. Here's a 12-mold ice cream cone making machine in action:
While wafer cones like those are molded, the production methods for waffle cones and sugar cones are a bit more involved:
Interestingly, Japanese ice cream manufacturer Nissei Co. employs a fellow named Tsutomu Owada whose sole job is to design molds for ice cream cones.
Owada designed this fancy Laurel Top cone:
"Laurel Top," a Nissei spokesperson soberly told The Asahi Shimbun, "satisfied the needs of people who wanted more gorgeous cones."
That first video is sketchy af. What is that a mechanics shop pumping out ice cream cones? Yikes.
I think, because the machine is on a pallet, and because there's no packaging equipment, that this is a used equipment reseller who knows enough to demonstrate something they don't usually handle.
I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
