Highlights include results of hygienic component design study with Virginia Tech and product demonstrations

 

RADFORD, VA – March 3, 2017 – Kollmorgen invites ProFood Tech attendees to visit booth #2840 April 4 – 6, 2017, at McCormick Place in Chicago to learn more about its industry-leading motion solutions for food and beverage manufacturers. Kollmorgen will also be sharing the results of a recent study conducted by the Virginia Tech Department of Food Science and Technology. The study evaluated whether following industry hygienic design guidelines improved sanitation effectiveness. The results are available in a new white paper: Scientifically Hygienic: Improving Machinery Design Through Improved Component Design. In addition to obtaining a free copy of the paper, Kollmorgen personnel involved in the study will be available for discussion.

“We are excited to share the results of our study with Virginia Tech. We looked at how hygienic design at the component level effected the sanitizability of the entire machine,” said Bill Sutton, Market Development Manager at Kollmorgen. “The results will be interesting to any company focused on reducing contamination risk and the cost of additional cleaning and sanitizing time.”

Kollmorgen will also be demonstrating the AKMH™ Hygienic Servo Motor. The AKMH was developed based on research that included input from 100+ food processing companies. The AKMH delivers ultimate cleanability and reliability in even the toughest wash-down environments.

ProFood Tech attendees are invited to discuss specific application needs or other Kollmorgen products at booth 2840. Meetings with a Kollmorgen expert can be scheduled by contacting Bill Sutton at Bill.Sutton@Kollmorgen.com.
