Food & Beverage

For food manufacturers, making a consistent product is an essential aspect of production.

A candy bar made by an international confectioner should taste the same in Detroit as in Dubai. The manufacturing process needs to preserve flavor and appearance and above all, maintain safety standards. Motion Solutions supports machine builders and end-users with a combination of quality food manufacturing equipment components and machine automation parts from reputable vendors and deep domain expertise from our engineering staff. Companies that build food and beverage manufacturing equipment have significant motion and automation expertise but they may need assistance to take their performance to the next level. They may want to find a way to lower the cost of subassemblies or simply outsource steps to free up their own engineers and technicians to focus on more food-centric tasks.

Proven Solutions

Food processing and packaging expose automation equipment to punishing conditions such vibration, caustic chemicals, moisture, and acidic food products. Even food-grade motors frequently fail after just months. We have sought out food manufacturing and automation components designed specifically to survive these harsh environments. In particular, our portfolio includes motors with vent tubes and specialized seals that enable them to operate for years without failure. This increases productivity and reduces cost of ownership, both important for the low-margin food market.

Washdown doesn’t just take place in the processing plant and factory. We have expertise in food handling at the production end, as well. Operations in the fields and packing houses present particular challenges. Lettuce, for example, is put into what is essentially a large washing machine and sprayed while it is spinning to clean it. Here, the challenge is not just moisture and contamination but ongoing vibration. We can provide food manufacturing equipment, machine automation components and sub-assemblies that operate well even in these tough conditions.
