Sweet on strong technology
Metal bellows couplings for the food industry
The more tender the result has to be, the more reliable, even, gentler and more sensitive the technology has to handle the ingredients in order to make delicacies possible. Particularly when it comes to the production of products that are as delicate and desired as chocolates and sweets, the safety couplings of R+W make a decisive contribution, on the one hand, to guaranteeing consistent quality and, on the other, to avoiding expensive failures in the production lines.
Absolutely uniform torque transmission to the grinder is indispensable for the grinding and pressing of cocoa beans; even the tiniest changes in the drive can reduce the quality of complete batches.
Or the rolling and conching of the chocolate mass, where the unique creaminess first arises, along with the even cooling off of the chocolate mass on the conveyor belt: even the smallest irregularities in the belt's running influence the consistency of the temperature and change the sensitive product.
Absolute process reliability across the board is just as important here as the most sophisticated recipe of the chocolatier, whose refined taste we would nevertheless be happy to possess.
And since the highest hygiene requirements rightly apply in the food industry, R+W uses only the highest quality rust-free stainless steel for its couplings. Optimal torsional stiffness, precise torque transmission and exact positioning are a matter of course for R+W.
All of this maintenance-free and durable – even in the smallest miniature bellows couplings of the MK series from 0.05 to 10 Nm and bore diameters from 1 – 28 mm. Precision is after all everything. Precision is R+W.
