Gearboxes for the food and pet food industry

In the food industry it is imperative, that for the factories and components used meet or exceed high hygienic and safety regulations.

Special environment factors, such as high/low temperatures, moist or dry air, as well as special requirements for a wide variety of end products, flow directly into the design and development of KACHELMANN GETRIEBE gearboxes for the food industry. During a standard factory cylce in the sugar industry the gearboxes, in the sugar mills for example, run in 24-hour, 3 shift operation, while guaranteeing that bearings, sealing elements and the gear tooth systems of the gearboxes withstand the high stresses.

In addition to sugar mills, the areas of application of our gearboxes stretches from pasta processing to chocolate and candy production, all the way up to drives for Leuterbottiche in breweries. The animal food industry also has high demands on technology, therefore KACHELMANN GETRIEBE gearboxes are also used in the area of animal food production and processing.
