Handtmann at IFFA 2022
latest technologies from product preparation to packaging
Handtmann will be presenting the latest technologies in the form of integrated process solutions at the IFFA in Hall 12.0 Stand A80/A81: from product preparation including mixing and grinding, to cutting-edge processing technology for pumping, feeding, portioning, linking, forming, dosing and separating as well as product handling including weighing, feeding and depositing into packaging solutions. Handtmann Line Solutions (HLS) are responsible for the development, planning and implementation of these integrated production lines. Handtmann Customized Solutions (HCS) provide tailor-made customer solutions for individual needs. Handtmann Digital Solutions (HDS) offer optimum support for these complex production processes as well as for state-of-the-art production management based on the latest Industry 4.0 essentials. This new and comprehensive service offer is now complemented by original Handtmann consumables such as cutting sets for the first time. New product ideas and trend products can be found in the Handtmann Food Innovation Centre on the exhibition stand, measuring approx. 2,000 square meters.
In the area of product preparation, Handtmann Inotec grinding technology will be on display as well as the BC140-iT-300 automatic processing unit and the VarioMix mixer. These universal processing units can be used for the simultaneous heating, cooling, mixing, grinding and emulsifying of firm, pasty and fluid products, and as all-rounders can be perfectly deployed as stand-alone machines but also integrated in modern, complex production processes. At the trade far, they are presented as part of a dosing solution from product preparation to tray packaging, comprising BC140-iT-300, VF 820, DS 552 dosing system, transfer system and tray sealer. The dosing process is generally possible on 2 to 24 lanes directly into thermo-forming packaging, trays or onto a conveyor belt. The innovative dosing principle with return suction without filling pistons and valves can dose fluid to semi-viscous filling products precise to the gram and with great process reliability.
On the stand, interested parties can also find a new modular overall solution for the fully automated production of formed products, comprising VF 828 S vacuum filler, GD 451 inline grinding system, FS 525 forming system for either free forming or forming and separating, WS 910 weighing system in the new advanced version and the new Handtmann transfer system for product depositing into the packaging solution. In addition to a variety of other forming solutions, the new FS 507 1- or 3-lane forming system for premium steak haché burgers and premium meat or hybrid burgers will be introduced.
Innovations will also be presented in the area of sausage production, from the new length unit for sausages in natural casing in artisan production to the new hanging unit for industrial high-performance production. The highlight of this segment will be the new PTH portioning, tying and hanging line for the automatic filling, portioning, tying and hanging of products in natural casing. The ConPro systems for sausage-shaped products in alginate casing will also make up a part of the trade fair presentation, as will Handtmann Inotec’s tying machines and link cutters.
In Handtmann’s core competence of filling and portioning technology, the two new VF 806 S and VF 808 S vacuum fillers and the GD 455 inline grinding system, newly developed to fit this category, will be presented in Frankfurt for the first time. Flexible performance adjustment to increasing production capacities and the combination with either Handtmann sausage linking lines and forming and depositing systems render them suitable for use for small-scale through to industrial producers. The new, advanced VF 608 plus edition of the vacuum filler with numerous new auxiliary devices, such as the new DV 85-10 dosing valve for the automated production of skinless sausage specialities, soup add-ins and fillings, will be on display for the butchery trade. The new VSP-1 skewer machine meets the increasing demand for formed barbecue and convenience products from meat, meat substitutes or vegetables.
