Customers and other market players can engage in the current and fu-ture issues facing the sector - initially in virtual live sessions from 8 March, then subsequently from 22 March in face-to-face events in small groups under strict corona-compliant conditions. The technical presentations and individual discussions with experts, as well as the practical live demonstrations in the Training & Innovation Center or our new Application Center, all take place in either morning or afternoon sessions. From April onwards, the contents of these sessions will also be available on the MULTIVAC City platform.
- Sustainability & Digitalisation
The focus of the "Sustainability & Digitalisation" event includes the megatrends in the packaging sector and MULTIVAC's sustainable pack-aging solutions. There will be a live demonstration in the Training & In-novation Center of food being packed in recyclable cardboard trays, as well as MultiFresh™ vacuum skin packs being produced with paper fi-bre-based pre-cut board. In addition to this, there will be demonstra-tions of applications featuring attractive but also sustainable pack presentation.
The agenda will also include MULTIVAC's digital products and services, among them the new "myMULTIVAC" customer portal, as well as smart services and live support, which ensure that maximum productivity and a high level of added value are achieved.
- Slicing & Packaging in Meat Processing
One highlight of this second event on all types of solutions for the meat processing industry is the fully automatic slicing and packing of pro-cessed meat products on two slicer lines in the new Application Center. The centralised control of each packaging line via MULTIVAC Line Con-trol (MLC) ensures that the maximum process reliability is achieved. Par-ticipants will also be able to learn, how they can improve output in the labelling and marking of thermoformed packs, as well as raising effi-ciency in the packaging process through automatic label and print in-spection. The program will be rounded off with examples of applications from the meat and sausage sector, as well as a comprehensive presen-tation of MULTIVAC's after-sales support.
And last but not least, participants can also register for an exclusive "Meet the experts" appointment, where they can discuss their individual questions on all aspects of packaging, food and current trends with the MULTIVAC experts from the Innovation Center.
The series of events will be continued with further sector-related ses-sions in the following months on "Line expertise & Automation", "Pack-aging solutions for proteins, fresh produce & convenience foods", "So-lutions for the meat processing industry" (TVI), "Solutions for small and medium-sized companies and businesses producing hand-crafted prod-ucts", as well as "Solutions for bakery companies" (FRITSCH).
