Haas has announced it will be present at interpack, targeting a wide range of companies, including both small-scale producers with limited budgets and multinational buyers of complete manufacturing lines.
Several thousand hours have been invested by all Haas business units to develop what will finally be exhibited at this year’s show. More than 20 semi-trucks carrying equipment to Duesseldorf, Haas’ booth will have a floor space of 1,400m2 plus a double-storey area of 200 sqm space. Here, Haas’ 120 international staff will represent more than 1,000 years of baking and confectionery production expertise, demonstrating the vast variety of possible applications.
FHW Franz Haas Wafer will be presenting advanced equipment including baking and separating machinery for the production of wafer snacks, recently launched under the name of BIG BANG. Another focus will be on the latest generation of the Eco oven, which features significant reduction of gas consumption and emissions, as well as a superior, simple heating adjustment concept.
In addition, FHW will introduce the new and efficient HESZ systems for wafer cutting and gentle handover to packing machines. The EWB line will also be shown with a cream aeration system by Haas Mondomix, which can also be used for savoury and spicy applications.
Another highlight is the Free-Shape Cutter FF-AWD, a machine that meets industry demand for different forms. Freely moving cutting wires allow for easy cutting simple or complex forms. They can either be embedded in a square block or as completely interleaving figures.
Haas-Meincke is placing particular emphasis on hygiene at this year’s interpack. Its high-speed wire-cutter, type 6110, with a RollOff-RollOn (RO-RO) head is being presented at the booth alongside other high-end forming machines. It combines very heavy-duty and high-capacity specifications (such as up to 2m band width and 300 strokes/min) with the highest standard of hygienic design (including open design, separation zone between product seals and bearing seals, and RO-RO).
Haas-Meincke will also present a complete entry-level cookie line that will showcase the wire-cutter 6050, the IFC oven, and "Industry 4.0" on a cookie line presenting gap control in combination with the Spider system, a data collection and monitoring tool for all business units of Haas. Also being demonstrated is the high-end cracker line and a V60 with a new cross Cigar-cutter.
Franz Haas CFT will present the CAIMAN oven, which can produce 19,700 rolled sugar cones per hour, while requiring no more floor space than conventional ovens. The twelve or fourteen-track downstream equipment makes the production line compact, yet requires fewer personnel. A new two-circuit heating system enables better baking results and uniform product quality, while using less energy. Trials aiming to further increase the current capacity are underway.
HMM Haas-Mondomix, with focus on aeration, is focusing on recent trends in the sector including automation, high-efficiency, and reliability of lines, as well as flexibility under high outputs. Also on the booth are HMM Haas-Mondomix’s improved batter mixing systems, including weighing of flour and automatic dosing of water.
These comply with the latest Haas hygienic design rules and ensure a constant batter quality, with lowest possible down-time and operator friendliness. The High Speed Mixer HSM 2500 is the biggest machine for cracker and biscuit dough mixing in Haas’ portfolio. It pairs the company’s years of experience in the biscuit sector with the latest hygienic design standards.
The design includes the possibility for over and double tilt, opening a wide array of possibilities and solutions for Haas customers. The company ensures that by buying a complete package from the Haas Group, the customer will have the most efficient solution paired with an ease of mind from selecting a reliable partner.
A wealth of baking and confectionery industry innovation and expertise awaits visitors at the Haas Booth B22/B46 in Hall 3, where live demonstrations are to be presented during show hours.
