Unique Metal Chain Transfer Moves Meats in Sanitary Environment

For a recent application, a customer needed to move cooked foods between machines, but needed to address issues such as product temperature, sanitary requirements and maintaining product orientation.
The customer was moving cooked sausage patties and sausage links from the oven and delivering them to a spiral freezer unit.

A stainless steel wire belt was used for this application due to the need for the belt to withstand the high temperatures of the product coming out of the oven.
New Employees

Dorner has added Enrico Berlenghi to our management team as Managing Director – European Sales.

In this new position, Berlenghi will be focused on sales development for all three Dorner Holding Companies: Dorner, FlexMove, and Geppert-Band. Prior to joining Dorner, Berlenghi held various sales and marketing business director positions at Span Tech Europe, Kuhn Holding, and D&D.
