Güdel's Intralogistics division will be showcasing its automation solutions for the food industry under the slogan "From wet to dry". At this year's Anuga FoodTec – the global trade fair covering all aspects of food production – Güdel will be exhibiting two very successful products from its extensive portfolio, covering both the wet and dry areas.
This will be Güdel's first appearance at a trade fair since it acquired WVG Kainz. Anuga FoodTec is being held between March 24 and March 27, 2015 in Cologne, and Güdel's stand design will highlight two of its core competencies simultaneously.
For the wet area, Güdel will be exhibiting its tried and tested, individually configurable deboning system. Visitors will be able to check out the system's impressive range of functions and processing capacity right there at the fair. The deboning system's key advantages are its patented, automatic cleaning facility and its individual design, depending on the desired capacities. An empty crate feed attachment and full crate removal attachment are included as standard. A bone conveyor belt and/or rind conveyor belt are available as optional choices.
For the dry area, Güdel will be showing a complete automation system for crate logistics. A Güdel 3-axis gantry with a mechanical gripper for crates, conveyor belts and de-stacker ensure ample motion. Up to four E2 crates are stacked by the gantry and then transported to the eccentric de-stacker. This separates out the crate towers at a speed of up to 800 crates per hour. The conveyor belts pick up the individual crates and transport them back to the gantry and gripper. Their maximum speed can even top 2,500 crates per hour. The belts can be easily accessed and cleaned. Their low noise levels and flexible applicability for a variety of re-usable containers make them ideal transporters for crate logistics in the food industry.
