AC Horn Manufacturing

1269 Majesty Drive Dallas, TX 75247 United States

Our vision today is to fuel the snack food industry by providing best-in-class products coupled with outstanding customer support. We will continue to grow and broaden our product lines to meet the demands of the industry we serve, while always remaining committed to the quality, product longevity and integrity that are a part of our heritage. Since the inception of AC Horn, we have built exceedingly dependable products – backed with a dedication to our customers that is second to none. That will never change. We will always want to be known for having integrity in everything we do. Our business has changed though. At one time, AC Horn was seen primarily as a “job shop” that also happened to have a line of proprietary equipment. Now we have evolved into a worldwide leader of processing equipment for snack foods – and our equipment is in use in more than 80 countries. We’ve done this while staying true to who we are, using good, honest craftsmanship and thoughtful design.

Food & Beverage Processing Equipment

AC Horn Manufacturing offers a wide range of food processing equipment including roasters and dryers, blanchers, granulators, coaters and seasoning equipment, with a focus on snack foods, nut and seed processing. Batch roasters, designed for nut processing companies seeking a low-cost, high-quality solution, ensure uniform roasting for maximum flavor development. AC Horn’s granulator is designed to granulate any and all nut varieties, forming defined, sharp-edged granules with minimum production of fine product instead of crushing the product. The M320 cooker/coater for caramel corn, peanut brittle and kettle corn features a uniquely engineered single-process design whereby operators preprogram temperature set points. Once the proper temperature is achieved, an alarm activates signaling the time to add the necessary ingredients. Company also designs entire lines for nut butter processing.

AC Horn makes collating conveyors, pack-off conveyors, and pack-off tables. The single lane collator accepts bags from the packaging machine, gently conveying them into a collating conveyor. The collator then aligns the bags for easy packing. The collator can also count and group the bags to the customer’s case configuration. AC Horn’s Smart Pak conveyor gently conveys bags from the packaging machine to the pack-off table or individual case. The loose pack adaptation allows the packer to easily convert to the flipper option, which automatically counts and distributes bags at speeds up to 140 bags per minute.
