Natec Network fires up innovations for Interpack 2023
Natec Network – an international network of companies comprising Hochland Natec GmbH, Gold Peg International Pty Ltd and Natec USA LLC – are preparing to showcase a range of innovative technologies at the upcoming Interpack expo (Dusseldorf, Germany – 4–10 May 2023).
Drawing on many years of experience in high-quality machinery and plant engineering for the industrial food production sector, the three well-known market players that make up Natec Network today offer an array of value-adding, specialised and unique solutions to many of the world’s leading food manufacturers.
Suitable for a wide range of products such as processed cheese, meat, sauces, babyfood, fruit & vegetable preparations, mayonnaise, and more, Natec Network solutions are for ‘more than cheese’, as its new marketing material emphasises.
Keen to demonstrate how Natec Network’s technologies can boost manufacturers’ food production performance, the team will be on hand at Interpack 2023 (stand #5A01) in Dusseldorf to discuss potential clients’ needs.
Below are a few of the key innovations that Natec Network will be showcasing.
M4E (Magnet 4 Enulsion) technology
Dissolving powders is important, but sometimes challenging. For starches and hydrocolloids, Natec Network’s M4E (Magnet 4 Emulsion) technology has proven to offer excellent results.
The innovative M4E technology is dedicated to products applications where high amounts of powders and/or difficult powders needs to be dissolved. With this technology, better and faster results can be achieved compared to traditional technology. Likewise, emulsions such as Mayonnaise have demonstrated excellent results.
FreeSlice 800 slice-on-slice solution
With the FreeSlice 800 we introduce a new size into our slice-on-slice production portfolio. It provides mid-size capacity in combination with versatility like slices sprinkled with herbs or individually shaped slices (for example, slices in a novel cow shape).
Hermetic sealed slices (HSS) technology
Natec Network’s FreePack range with its new HSS technology will now contribute further to sustainable packaging. The machine can produce 100-per-cent airtight individual wrapped slices worldwide. This allows for a secondary packaging without gas barrier (which could be paper or simple pe/pp film). Certainly, such a solution is more sustainable, whilst also potentially allowing for cost savings.
Natec Network’s new ‘Innovation Space’
Beyond such innovative technologies, Natec Network recently announced the opening of its brand new technology and test centre ‘Innovation Space’ at its headquarters in Heimenkirch, Germany. Natec Network made this investment to showcase its complete portfolio. Potential customers can either provide existing recipes to be run on Natec Network equipment, or develop new compositions using its technology. Start-up companies are welcome to use the Innovation Space to create new products. A further advantage is that all produced product samples are suitable for human consumption as the Innovation Space is an approved food production area, meaning that samples can be produced for market or consumer tests.
During and after the Interpack expo, Natec Network will be offering an ‘Open House’ for all interested parties to visit the Innovation Space. Please contact Natec Network for further details.
Meet the Natec Network at Interpack 2023 at stand #5A01 in Dusseldorf, to discuss your needs and learn more about how our technologies can boost your food production performance.
