Danfoss – the leading drive specialist for food, beverage and packaging Advanced system solutions born of 40 years of experience Danfoss is one of the leading suppliers of advanced drive systems in all sectors of the food and beverage industry. In 1968 the company launched the first frequency converter products – at that time already on trial in a large brewery. From the start, Danfoss concentrated on certain sectors and developed its products with a focus on the special requirements of individual targets. Through many years of close cooperation with our F&B customers, Danfoss has developed a profound understanding of the characteristics of this sector and has consequently been able to follow the right trends and to set new ones. The VLT® FlexConcept®, which has been providing innovative drive solutions for conveyors and machines since 2009, is a recent example. Benefits of the innovation process With the opening of the F&B and Packaging Innovation Centre in Bruchsal, Danfoss has concentrated its expertise in these sectors in one place. Now the specialists can concentrate on the key tasks side-by-side, so that they can develop innovative interdisciplinary solutions to meet the sector’s specific requirements for hygiene, energy efficiency, ambient conditions and reliability. The Innovation Centre unites experts in motor and servo technology, frequency converter technology and control technology, who work in teams and encourage each other to come up with new ideas. Along with the global research & development centres and production facilities in Denmark, China and the US, there are now additional R&D and special test facilities available in the Innovation Centre in Bruchsal to enable rapid testing and optimisation of new solutions. Last, but not least, assembly facilities for VLT® OneGearDrive® geared motors and VLT® Integrated Servo Drive systems are also now located at the Bruchsal site. Innovation, precision and high quality from a single source, under the same roof! In focus: Our customers’ requirements Concentrating specific application knowledge in a centre of competence and innovation improves both internal and external communications. Only in this way can specific requirements be understood better and fulfilled more quickly. Time to market Food, Beverage & Packaging Innovation Centre Regardless of whether a development project involves a standard product or a user-specific product, minimising development time is crucial in rapidly evolving markets and difficult economic conditions. With this new Innovation Centre, Danfoss offers its customers an ideal platform for achieving faster innovation cycles and shorter time to market . Danfoss currently has a wide range of drive products specifically developed for machines and transport systems in the F&B sector. Danfoss constantly emphasises optimisation and concentration and on that basis has now established the F&B and Packaging Innovation Centre in Bruchsal. 2
