Fokus on Food

More exhibitors, more visitors and more countries – the Anuga FoodTec in March was very busy. Brabender Technologie took the opportunity to show new and proven feeder technology.

The new weigh belt feeder in hygienic design stood in the limelight of the trade fair. Have a closer look in detail on pages 14 and 15. The company already received inquiries for this model. The food industry  is one of the core industries for Brabender Technologie. Therefore, the company’s knowledge and expertise is readily available.

Particularly, interest was aroused by the FlexWall® feeder in hygienic design, which is able to feed difficult flowing powders without using a stirrer. Designed for the food industry is the innovative fruit feeder which is ideal for dried fruits such as raisins. Often, the automatic addition of dried fruit in mixing processes requires frequent cleaning and maintenance. This feeder can therefore solve a lot of problems with minimal downtimes.

International customers and
employees on-site
Sales representatives from Canada, Italy and the Netherlands came to Cologne to meet and support their German colleagues. The international orientation of the trade fair got even stronger compared to last year. Katharina C. Hamma, General Manager of the Koelnmesse GmbH, explained to the press: “This year's increased number of visitors was above all attributable to the rise in the number of trade visitors from abroad. We were particularly able to register significant growth from the countries China, Italy, Korea, Poland, Russia and South America.“

Brabender Technologie took the opportunity to meet new and existing clients. “Especially our innovations met the expectations of the market“, relates Horst Vohwinkel, General Manager Brabender Technologie. Even alleged “small“ achievements in Hygienic Design like new machine feet have significant effects on the cleanability of a feeder. Practical solutions especially in the food industry like visual checks, tool free access, intelligent surface design for passing liquids has a significant hygienic advantage.
