VACUUM TECH by Vetromeccanica

Vacuum Tech is the right solution to convey lightweight, unstable, empty containers.

VACUUM TECH – FEATURES AND ADVANTAGES

– SUCTION UNIT AND VACUUM TRANSFER SYSTEM 
The suction unit is installed beside the conveyor that presents a pierced chain made of a plastic material. Through this chain, the air is drawn from the base of the container.
The power of the electric motor ranges from 5,5 to 7,5 kW according to the type of container to be conveyed.

– CONTROL SYSTEM 
To optimize and control the vacuum system functioning there is a pressure control unit for each suction unit.

FEDEGARI ACADEMY TRANSFERS KNOWLEDGE TO THE NEW GENERATIONS

Fedegari Academy – Alternanza Scuola-Lavoro – is promoted by Confindustria Pavia in collaboration with Istituto Tecnico Industriale Statale G. Cardano of Pavia

“It is crucial to address the demand of the companies for professionally prepared young personnel”, stated Nicola de Cardenas.”With this initiative we want to give them the opportunity to build a professional future here, in our territory”, completed Paolo Fedegari.

On the Morning of May 14th 2019, Confindustria Pavia, The Cardano Institute and Fedegari Group signed the agreement launching the project. It contemplates the promotion of growth paths for the development of transversal skills and guidance. ITIS Cardano is promoting this goal through the recommendation of eight students to Fedegari chosen among the most motivated ones. This indication allowed the young talents to enter immediately the world of work once they conclude their studies at the Institute.

On the other hand, the Fedegari Academy project provided to the students a training course in the areas of “welding” and “mechanical design”. Confindustria Pavia, represented by its reference officer Fabio Fugazza, coordinates the activities and released a certificate of the acquired transversal skills.

“The project is fundamental to enrich the path of young people who want to face the labour market with appropriate preparation and tools. Fedegari is a leading manufacturer of machines and systems for the pharma industry in our territory, with a strong attitude to internationalization and digitization. Our ultimate goal is to engage other member companies to improve the relationship between education and business”, explains Nicola de Cardenas, President of Confindustria Pavia.

Paolo Fedegari wishes this initiative could be an example for other companies in the Province and expects the project to impact positively the entire production system. “Companies in Pavia are looking for prepared young people and are pleased to contribute to the construction of their professional future. Training people means creating a system in which new generations could be motivated and valued. This is part of the recovery process on competitiveness, necessary to our ecosystem”, said Fedegari.

“Students had the opportunity to experience the working environment through this important project” stated Giancarla Gatti Comini, School Principal, supported by Elio Guastalli, tutor in charge of the project. “In addition, during the project, our young talents were able to discover the value of theoretical knowledge acquired so far in class. This practical course motivates students and encourages them to continue studying”, concluded Comini.

“Training is one of the pillars for the growth and development of our territory. The opportunity to collaborate as a technical partner with Confindustria and ITIS Cardano, creating value for the community of Pavia, makes us proud,” said Paolo Fedegari, CEO of Fedegari Group.

“Investing in this relationship is fundamental for those who, like us, believe in the importance of training young people. The agreement signed goes in this direction: a new concept of collaboration to actively contribute to the growth of our resources. We hope this project will inspire many entrepreneurs to believe in the strength of our young people to build the future” added Fedegari.

One of Fedegari strategic goals is to create knowledge and transfer the company know-how to future generations. This project will contribute not only to the growth of our company, but also to the participants and to our region.  Fedegari and SolidWorld provided this group with training courses following the activities of staff, specifically in the “welding” and “mechanical design” areas. 

Last July 11th, the eight students concluded the first part of the training course at Fedegari Academy organized in collaboration with Confindustria Pavia. They presented the pressure vessels entirely designed, manufactured and inspected by themselves in Fedegari headquarters. A great experience to be continued after summer.

Turn-key integrated solution Case Study

Case Study: when one of the biggest European tuna can producers was losing cans to uneven heat distribution in processing, Fedegari developed a turn-key integrated solution that resulted in 0 rejected cans.

The challenge

Overcoming undesirable temperature fluctuations and overheating, guaranteeing homogeneous heat distribution throughout the load. · Developing a fully integrated solution for treating different tuna can formats, increasing productivity and, consequently, reducing operating costs.

The context

The nutritional quality of the products as well as microbiological and sensory quality are essential factors in the food industry. The thermal processing of canned food is the most important step in the canning procedure1 . Currently, a large quantity of canned goods is rejected during production and has to be destroyed or reprocessed due to inefficient performances of sterilization. This increases the energy consumption and other significant food processing costs. 1 Ibrahim M. Ismail, Alaa Fahmy, Ahmed Azab, Magdy Abadir, and Seif-Eddeen K. Fateen. “Optimizing the sterilization process of canned food using temperature distribution studies”IOSR Journal of Agriculture and Veterinary Science (IOSR-JAVS). For example, overcooking may cause a weight reduction of the product which obligates the manufacturer to complete the cans with additional product in order to comply with the weight indicated on the labelling. Such practices are costly. Sterilization plays a vital role in the food industry as the final product is intended for human consumption. It also represents a critical process since it may influence the quality and safety of the food. In this context, only optimal processing conditions through the proper application of the F-value approach in sterilization allows to optimize the balance between food safety and quality requirements. It assures an appropriate and homogeneous thermal treatment, thus avoiding over- or undercooking, and consequently maintaining the highest standards for uniformity of texture, flavor, and retention of nutrients.

The solution

Process knowledge applied in the development of a fully integrated solution for food preservation and throughput maximization. Fedegari superheated water sterilizers – FOW series (Fig.1) were chosen for improving process performance and throughput. The choice focused on the simplest, most robust and cost-effective solution for sterilizing at a wide range of temperatures with the shortest process time. Fedegari designed an unique, but completely integrated and accurate system. The key for an outstanding performance is the effective control of temperature and F-value which guarantees the highest uniformity to the sterilization process. Control efficiency eliminates errors and rejected loads while operating cost-effectively. The goal was to guarantee the microbiological target along with thermometric performance, through a new process design capable of offering competitive advantage over conventional alternatives. Besides, an additional concern was raised regarding the packaging quality.

The results

Fedegari has supported the customer, one of the biggest European tuna can producers, with in-depth knowledge in sterilization processes, developing a turn-key integrated solution focused on throughput maximization. The customer has increased its productivity at the end of every cycle and the number of rejected cans has been reduced to zero.
