    The Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV, Dresden, has developed the new “Pack Peel Scan” measuring device for testing peelable packaging. Equipped with artificial intelligence it allows the effective evaluation of easy opening packaging systems. The opening forces for peelable, thermoformed packaging can thus be measured and tested in accordance with the relevant standards.

    The upcoming international fair of the meat industry IFFA from 4 to 9 May 2019 in Frankfurt will see the Fraunhofer IVV present new technologies for the efficient cleaning of meat processing plants and machinery. A versatile, mobile cleaning robot is used for this, with concomitant time and cost savings. In addition, innovative simulation software is allowing the rapid and effective design of spray cleaning systems. It guarantees effective and precisely targeted cleaning and saves time-consuming tests in the plant design phase. Both technologies will be presented in the VDMA Technology Lounge in Hall 11.1, B41.

    Innovative solutions for efficient and adaptive cleaning of machinery in the beverage industry will be presented by the Fraunhofer IVV Dresden at the drinktec fair in Munich from 11-15 September 2017 on the stand of the VDMA (Hall B3, Stand 113). The new mobile cleaning robot is versatile in its use and realizes time and cost savings for cleaning processing machinery. Easier and more thorough cleaning of tanks is also realized using a novel jet cleaner. In combination with simulation tools, they also guarantee effective cleaning in a production environment without the need for time-consuming cleaning tests on machine prototypes.
