Hygienic and efficient automation in the production of food
Correctly implemented, standards and directives guarantee safe conditions in the production of food.
The EC Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC is intended for the protection and safety of consumers and operators wherever food comes into direct contact with machine parts and components.
Standards and directives for design (EN 1672-2/EHEDG Doc 8 and Doc 13) and materials (FDA CFR Title 21, ISO 21469, 1935/2004/EC, for example for the use of NSF-H1-lubricants) provide additional support for food safety.
Your food safety goals:
- Avoid microbiological contamination
