Companies in this industry manufacture and/or process a wide variety of foods, including meat, seafood, dairy products, fruits and vegetables, milled grains and oilseeds, baked goods, and candy.
Technology employed in this industry allows for integrated network automation of the processing, baking, canning, freezing, packaging and quality control of food and beverages.
The challenge is made more difficult by strict hygiene requirements – with frequent, often lengthy washdowns and harsh chemicals that can quickly destroy ordinary machine components. This places demand on these manufacturers to update or buy new automation equipment for production. Electromate supplies a range of food and beverage control systems and food grade actuators & motors specifically designed for use in these harsh environments.
