NEW PARADIGMS FOR THE DESIGN
MANUFACTURING AND OPERATION
OF FOOD PROCESSING AND PACKAGING EQUIPMENT

Introduction

The project is aimed at developing and applying new paradigms to achieve a breakthrough in the design, construction and operation of machines and plants for the food industry:

Paradigm 1 (P1): "Design and manufacture by new technologies" based on the integrated use of net-shape (including additive) manufacturing technologies, new materials, unconventional joining technologies (eg. adhesive bonding, friction stir welding), aimed at the rationalization of components and cost, increase of yield and in the context of hygienic design

Paradigm 2 (P2). Read more


Objectives

The new paradigms are related to the design and construction and to the operation of food equipment, respectively. In the project, they will be selectively applied to the field of machines and plants for bottling and for thermophysical treatment plants and machineries. The final goal is the creation of a set of elements called "demonstrator" that exemplifies concretely the technical and economical benefits. The demonstrator for paradigm 1 "Design and manufacture by new technologies" includes the following elements: I) a rotary... Read more
