Whether for crunchy smoked sausages, refreshing ice cream or sparkling wine, Festo has helped many food and beverage producers create the right taste.
A Swabian recipe for success
Soft pretzels are one of the most popular breakfast treats in southern Germany. It takes skill, practice and time to achieve the perfect symmetrically twisted shape with a fat belly and thin arms. Or simply a clever automation solution.
Exactly the right dose
Coffee, sugar, pharmaceuticals—nowadays, virtually everything is packed in small, low-cost sachets. The new, flexible flat pouch machine Sigpack VPF from Bosch Packaging Technology ensures correct packaging and a precise mixing ratio. The world's first freely scalable sachet machine uses the new flexibility provided by the digital pneumatics of the Festo Motion Terminal.
The Doypack® brand has been synonymous with practical stand-up pouches for over 50 years. The patent is held by French company Thimonnier, which is increasingly moving towards mechatronics and ultimately Industry 4.0 for the development of its filling and packaging machines. Pneumatic and electric automation technology from Festo provides a solid foundation for this development.
With fluid processes to a sparkling future
Tradition has a name: Kessler. Since 1826, the oldest sparkling wines producer in Germany has been placing its faith in high-quality champagne and other wines – and intends to continue growing in the future with traditional methods and ultramodern production systems. Experts from Festo Training and Consulting are helping to make the new processes as smooth as possible.
An acquired taste
With 100,000 smoked sausages produced each day, it is an art in itself to continuously maintain a consistent taste, colour and consistency, depending on the product type. Bösinger Fleischwaren has been doing this for decades using globally well-known smoke generators and smoke houses from Germos. In the latest product generation, standard components from Festo are increasing system availability.
Maximum pleasure, minimum consumption
Energy-saving measures are a cornerstone of the corporate philosophy of global firm Unilever. The company is now significantly reducing its compressed air consumption on a machine producing Magnum ice creams by using the new energy efficiency module MSE6-E2M.
