Flexible and FDA-approved handling of food products
In today’s food industry, vacuum technology is absolutely indispensable. Vacuum is not only important for hermetically sealing food products, but is also already used to sort products on conveyor belts and package or repackage goods quickly and efficiently.
In order to ensure that food products such as muffins, waffles, cookies, chocolates and even eggs can be handled with the necessary care, suction cups must be able to flexibly adapt to the surface characteristics of different foods. This helps to prevent leakage and also ensures that products can be handled quickly and reliably.
The food industry places exacting demands on the suction cup materials used in order to prevent contamination of the food products being handled. Schmalz suction cups for the food and beverage industry are made using FDA-compliant materials and also comply with EC Regulation No. 1935/2004.
