Data-based review of hygienic component design at IPPE


Exhibiting its motion solutions for food and beverage manufacturers, Kollmorgen will be at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), 31st January – 2nd February 2017, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, in booth 5716.

Visitors to the booth are invited to ask for a copy of Scientifically Hygienic: Improving Machinery Design Through Improved Component Design, a white paper that discusses the findings of a recent study conducted by Kollmorgen and the Virginia Tech Department of Food Science and Technology.

The study evaluated whether following industry hygienic design guidelines improved sanitation effectiveness. Personnel involved in the study will be also available for discussion at the booth.  

Bill Sutton, Market Development Manager at Kollmorgen said: “We believe show attendees will be very interested in our study with Virginia Tech. The goal was to find out how hygienic design at the component level – in this case, servo motors – impacted sanitisability of the entire machine.”  

Sutton added: “The results are important for any company focused on reducing contamination risk, as well as the costs associated with additional sanitising time and cleaning interventions.” 

Throughout the show, Kollmorgen will demonstrate its AKMH Hygienic Servo Motor. The AKMH was developed based on research that included over 100 food processing companies. It is designed to deliver the ultimate cleanability and reliability in even the toughest wash-down environments.
