„We Create Know-How For Value-Added Foods!“ – this was the slogan of FESSMANN at IFFA 2019. The smoking specialists from Southern Germany convinced with innovative technologies and new developments in the field of smoking and automation. The latest systems for industrial and manual use were exhibited.

IFFA was a complete success for the world market leader in hot smoking. The booth, which was well attended throughout, attracted visitors from all over the world to linger and be amazed. In addition to the new FOOD.CON 2 control system, the highlights included the CLIMA.LiNE, FESSMANN's new drying and maturing system specially designed for craft businesses, and the second generation of the F.LOADER, the fully automatic loading and unloading unit for the TF4000 continuous production system. In addition, the smoking experts presented the T1900 and the T3000, their two all-rounders for the trade sector, as well as numerous systems for specific fields of application.

With the FOOD.CON 2, FESSMANN presented the successor to the well-known FOOD.CON control system for the first time at this year's IFFA. The newly developed controller enables the monitoring and control of up to four systems in parallel and is technically state-of-the-art. In addition to the overview of all important system parameters on the smartphone, e.g. for monitoring raw sausage processes running over the weekend, the modern fieldbus communication of important components with the controller via Ethernet connections significantly reduces the downtime of the machine, as possible problems can be identified in advance and eliminated by remote access.

In the maturing sector, FESSMANN presented a further innovation with the CLIMA.LiNE: a system specially designed for craft businesses, which is available in different versions for the maturing or pure drying of products. Thanks to special blinds for precise control of the air flow, the system is particularly suitable for mixed loads of hanging and laying products. In addition, all smoke generators of the RATIO family can be combined with the system. The proven CIP cleaning system ensures reliable cleaning results even with the most intensive smoke treatments.

A large area of the booth was dedicated to fully automatic production with the TF4000 and the F.LOADER. The automatic loading and unloading unit F.LOADER is the link between the filling machines of a production line and the continuous smoking, cooking and cooling system TF4000. In contrast to robotic solutions, the development focus was on offering a purely mechanical system that is both maintenance-friendly and cost-effective. With the F.LOADER, this has not only been achieved in an impressively simple manner, the award-winning system (winner of the FT-Award 2018) has also been further developed to the extent that space savings of 80 % could be achieved with the current version compared to the previous version.
