Market-specific challenges

In the food industry, display solutions are often exposed to particularly challenging environmental conditions. In addition to humidity, heat/cold, temperature fluctuations and contamination that occur during food processing, there are also very strict hygiene regulations and requirements for the safe operability of systems. Thanks to perfectly matched hardware and software components, we meet these challenges with confidence and realise products that are perfectly designed to your ideas and needs!

Challenges of the food industry

Our solutions & products

In accordance with the NSF/ANSI 169-2016 standard, our products meet the necessary requirements for handling and processing food.

Robust components

To successfully withstand the demanding environmental conditions of the food industry, the use of particularly resistant systems is crucial. We offer you a wide range of robust components, that effortlessly meet these challenges. Whether displays with extended temperature ranges, scratch-resistant cover glasses and PMMA/polycarbonate covers, IP-protected housings or special manufacturing processes, such as our bonding technologies – we offer you everything from a single source!

Highest hygiene standards in the production process

Strict guidelines apply to systems which are used in food processing to ensure high hygienic standards.

In order to prevent dirt, germs or liquids from entering the housing and to enable simple, hygienic cleaning, we offer various sealing concepts. Gaps created in the production process can be closed with our gap-filling process. We are also able to realise state-of-the-art systems with the currently highest ingress protection class IPX9.

When selecting the appropriate cover glass material, we carefully take care that the surface is not attacked by contact with food or cleaning chemicals. To avoid splinters in the event of a glass breakage, plastics such as PMMA or special splinter protection films can be offered as well.

We also react flexibly to your needs when it comes to the housing: whether it is stainless steel or plastic housing or a combination of both: we realise your individual enclosure concept.

safe operation in food industry

Easy & safe operation

In order to avoid potential false tripping due to external influences, e.g. liquids, strong temperature fluctuations or electromagnetic interference, the most modern PCAP systems, touch controllers and extensive expertise in tuning touch settings are crucial. If required, we adapt the touch settings of your application individually and implement multitouch function, palm suppression or enable operation with gloves.
