SMC, the world’s leading pneumatics provider, will be raising
a glass to its beverage industry partners at this year’s Drinktec,
Taking place at Messe München, from 16 to 20 September, the exhibition is billed as the world’s leading trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industry. And SMC will showcase its extensive range of pneumatic and electrical solutions for PET blowing, filling and packaging processes from its custom designed 108sqm stand in Hall 3, Stand 506.
SMC’s [insert job title and name] said: "Drinktec provides us with a great platform to showcase our market leading and energy saving solutions for the beverage manufacturing sector. We have a team of industry experts, who work in partnership with our customers and understand the key challenges they face on a daily basis, such as continuous 24/7 operation, complying with the latest hygiene regulations, continual wash downs and managing the extremes of heat and cold."
The toast of SMC’s display will be the new SY solenoid valve with IP69K enclosure for chemical control applications. This innovative product addresses the beverage sector’s costly use of stainless steel cabinets to protect valve manifolds against detergents and high pressure steam cleaning. Its modular and flexible design delivers reductions in the machine’s carbon footprint as fewer cabinets are required. The shorter tubing also reduces energy consumption.
Also on display will be the simple to operate, lightweight ZH20-X185 air amplifier which multiplies every one unit of compressed air entering the device by three times for suction and four times for blowing. It offers up to 70% less air consumption, due to a decrease in pressure making it ideal for open air applications that require high flow blowing or suctioning.
There will be a wide selection of other products on display from the latest electric actuators with an IP65 enclosure offering the very best in the blow moulding process to digital flow switches.
A selected team of multinational and multilingual experts will be on-hand at Drinktec 2013 to welcome visitors to SMC’s stand in Hall 3, Stand 506 to answer any queries. Further information about SMC’s beverage sector solutions can also be found at www.smc.eu.
