Food industry

Reliable automation technology for the food industry

From farm to table: In order for food to get from the producer to the consumer in undiminished quality, the entire process and supply chain must also be of the highest quality and reliability possible. This is particularly true in dairy and meat processing, but also applies to beverage and confectionery production. Even slight contamination or small deviations from the standardised process can reduce the quality. The consequences range from expensive downtimes to reputation-damaging recalls of entire batches.

ifm supports the food industry and agricultural sector with holistic solutions and a broad product portfolio specially developed for process automation in food production. The products are distinguished by a hygienic housing design, a high ingress resistance to protection class IP68 and IP69K as well as a high temperature resistance and protection against high-pressure cleaning with aggressive agents.
