Cover story In the food industry, flexibility is becoming an increasingly important characteristic. At the same time, companies prefer security systems that offer operational efficiency and cost advantages in addition to the necessary security function. The machine for processing cold cuts from Weber Maschinenbau shows how these requirements can be implemented. They were secured with a modular safety controller from Schmersal. The service package included commissioning and validation by the Tec.nicum service division.
Nord Drivesystems offers reliable drive technology for the grain industry around the world. In 2019, Lachenmeier Monsum A / S installed a grain terminal in Fredericia, DK, with a storage capacity for 40.000 tons of grain. They chose Nord as the partner for the drive solutions for operating the terminal.

The system enables safe, flexible and fast processes when loading and unloading boxes or cartons. "Air Grip World" combines the patented Air Grip gripper technology not only with the appropriate Motoman robot, but with the complete required system environment:
FMB Hall 20, Stand C31; SPS Hall 4, Booth 278 User report The cheese production facilities are as mature as the delicatessen itself. The French manufacturer of production lines for the production of cheese and milk products Chalon Mégard relies on reliable linear brakes from Mayr Antriebstechnik in its machines. The corrosion-protected brake systems easily withstand the conditions of use in the food industry and ensure, for example in a vertical conveyor system, that the heavy ones...
Braubeviale Hall 7, Stand 439 trade article Nord Drivesystems presents its new synchronous motor, which combines a significant improvement in energy efficiency with the “NSD Tuph” surface finish. It is therefore suitable for the demanding environmental conditions and high hygiene requirements in beverage logistics and production. Also to be seen: the standardized drive concept for lauter tuns and the new switch cabinet converter "Nordac Pro SK 500P".
FMB, Hall 20, Stand C31 Cover story The traditional family company Beyer Maschinenbau plans, develops and builds efficient packing and palletizing systems for the beverage and food industry. The patented "Roba-DS" multi-plate pack couplings from Mayr power transmission transmit precise torques in these systems. In lifting applications, the “Roba-linearstop” safety brakes reliably ensure the safety of people and materials.
The "Novego" weighing module from Minebea Intec was specially developed for the high demands in the food industry. The hygienic all-in-one solution is easy to install, reliable and reliably provides precise measurement results in weighing processes, even with shear forces of up to 20% of the nominal load.
Specialist articles There are different laws in the freezer zones than in environments under normal temperatures. The VB14N-T barcode scanner from Pepperl + Fuchs ensures optical identification at temperatures down to -35 ° C. It offers very good reading performance even with a low contrast of the bar code, can be put into operation quickly thanks to a quick warm-up phase and is energy-efficient and compact.
