Stuttgart, March 2023 – At this year’s Interpack (4-10 May 2023, Dusseldorf), Coperion, Coperion K-Tron and Gabler Engineering will jointly present their efficient process solutions for food manufacturing. New at booth 4D25 in hall 4 at this year's Interpack is Gabler Engineering. With the acquisition and integration of Gabler in 2022 Coperion expanded its food manufacturing portfolio. For over 115 years, Gabler Engineering has represented the perfect combination of experience and innovation, offering machines and systems for the development, construction and manufacture of complex, tailor-made processing systems for the confectionery and pharma industries. The company provides innovative technology and highly flexible machinery such as extruders, molding lines, coating machines and spray cabinets. At Booth 4D25, Gabler will exhibit the KM-40 extruder for manufacturing viscous masses, used for the manufacturing of chewing gum or chewable candy.
Visitors can also learn about the technologies and process expertise for manufacturing plant-based meat substitutes. Coperion’s ZSK Food Extruder in Hybrid Design provides one solution for manufacturing various TVP and HMMA-based meat substitutes on a single machine. Together with high-accuracy Coperion K-Tron feeders and efficient bulk material handling solutions, Coperion offers not only the ideal technical foundation for the production process but also supports companies in developing new recipes using various proteins.
Additionally, Coperion will be showing products for gentle and hygienic conveying of powdered ingredients with the WYK dual channel diverter valve as well as the ZRD 150 rotary valve. The rotary valve is equipped with intelligent RotorCheck 5.0 technology which provides reliable contact monitoring for greater safety in the conveying process. Coperion K-Tron will present two intelligent feeding solutions for high-accuracy ingredient feeding into the process: the QT20 twin screw loss-in-weight feeder as well as a representative of the new vibratory feeder line.
