Packaging, delivery and automation: Vuototecnica wins the challenge

Packaging in recent years, and even more in the first few months of 2020, had to face new challenges arising from the increasing importance given to the delivery sector.

Robotic warehouses and long shipments, of all kinds of products, even perishable ones, become everyday life for many industrial realities.

For this reason, greater emphasis is placed on the design of resistant packaging, on accuracy and speed in product handling, and on packaging and logistics automation.

Here on the blog we have seen several cases where Vuototecnica has won the challenge, helping companies in these increasingly fundamental tasks for every production chain.

We talked about solutions in plastic packaging and flowpack gripping thanks to our Vacupredators. Able to take flexible films without creating occlusion, quickly and without damaging the products.

We have repeatedly emphasized the characteristics of the Octopus vacuum gripping system in the handling of packages and in the management of goods on pallets.

We have deepened the in-line handling of food liquids bottles from the conveyor belt to the trays for the packaging of the finished product, thanks to the Maxigrip suction cups, which do not slip on the glass and guarantee a perfect grip.

Simply browse the blog to read the latest applications and find inspiration for your needs.

On the site you will find the catalogue, downloadable free, with all technical specifications and drawings.

Vacuum drawer for tasty and healthy cooking

We are all forced to quarantine and we have become best housekeepers, now, we have really started to use household appliances, while, instead, we usually reduce to essentials the household experience, during the year.

We have been cooking, till now, and we’ve produced excellent dishes, at least we tried.

So we’ve been working with mixers, blenders, immersion blenders, ovens, and whatever else! We think, however, that only few people still own an appliance that is becoming more and more popular, that can be integrated in any kitchen: the vacuum drawer.

The best brands are now implementing it for the preservation of natural food under vacuum, but also to experiment with vacuum cooking, a way of preparing healthy and tasty dishes, and one of the most appreciated techniques by chefs, because of the cooking at low temperatures that maintains the flavors and healthy properties of the ingredients.

Everything is done in special containers (or bags) emptied of the internal air through a professional vacuum machine. The bags are then immersed in hot water for cooking or in the steam oven. The flavour of the spices, thanks to the reduced loss of humidity, is enhanced and the meat is cooked softly.

A further advantage is that, once cooked, the food can be immediately consumed or stored in the fridge.

For the simple preservation, the vacuum prevents food deterioration, oxidation and the proliferation of bacteria, because since there is no oxygen, the food lasts up to 5 times longer.

Vuototecnica has been working in the vacuum field for decades and it is able to offer vacuum pumps, solenoid valves, measuring and control instruments, also to produce these types of smart, new generation appliances.

Vuototecnica, Fip and Dallara together against Covid-19 for the Maggiore Hospital in Parma

In these times, there is news that gives hope. Dallara engineers in Parma designed a system to control the flow of air mixed with oxygen. Vuototecnica, through Fip, its local distributor partner, has contributed to the project by recommending and supplying a Coanda effect venturi for the desired air-oxygen mixing. After some video calls on Skype and some great ideas, with the help of 3D printers to test the good resolution of the intuitions, they were able to transform Decathlon snorkel mask into a life-saving device, working as a mechanical ventilation with continuous positive pressure, the now infamous C-pap. A system capable of restoring breath to unintubated Covid-19 patients in need of hospitalization.

So the project was useful to the Maggiore Hospital in Parma. With this mask, which has a filtering on exhalation, it is possible to block the emission of contagious droplets of the breath and also to guarantee pressure support with an oxygen cylinder. Once we had the idea, however, there were to optimize the inlet and outlet connections of the mask and all with a minimum economic impact, considering the urgency and lack of means. So the engineers worked day and night to manage the inlet and outlet flows and ensure vacuum and oxygen supply.

This teamwork, almost entirely carried out remotely, demonstrates that research and knowledge, sharing in industry, when coordinated with the territory and the social sector, can work wonders.

Coronavirus. That’s all we talk about. To avoid the pandemic, it was decided to postpone some events and meetings. This is the case of MECSPE fair postponed from 29 to 31 October. Measures to avoid crowds.

Despite the relative stalemate, however, Vuototecnica is not stopping. The activities of normal administration, which include meetings, research, customer relations do not stop.

The generalised panic fuelled by the media and dangerous misinformation triggered behaviour that has contributed to a plague like in Manzoni’s novel, I promessi sposi (The Betrothed).

You can still have human and business contact. There is no prescription for this.

If you read Manzoni’s book, the famous passage dedicated to the pestilence in 17th century, you can see described all the hysteria that somehow have caught us in these days: fear for the foreigner, searching for patient zero, distrust of specialists, uncontrolled rumors, absurd remedies, pillaging of basic necessities, health emergency and much more. But the most interesting thing is that this hysteria, already at the time of Manzoni, and also in the seventeenth century, was seen with lucidity by those who had understood that some behaviors besides being illogical are counterproductive for economy, society, common good and for the individuals.

If we think that the coronavirus is certainly not a pestilence, we realize that to look at our fellow human beings as a threat, to stop living and stop our daily activities is not human. It’s unhealthy. That’s the real disease, maybe. The one that must scare us the most.

That is why Vuototecnica continues its activity, respecting the rules provided by the WHO and the government, but with the same passion and competence as always.

Take advantage of freetime you could have these days to study, read our news, do training.

Food and drinks: the exponential growth of Italian Food sector

The Food sector in Italy is growing rapidly, from different points of view.

First of all, there was an export boom. In fact, Italian-made food has a new record in international markets: in the first six months of the year, our food and beverage export grew by 6.9%, to 35.3 billion (2% of GDP) the value, on an annual basis, of our food sales abroad.

Despite the questions on duties between US, EU and China, and Brexit, 2019 seems to have started in a good way.

The first export market is Germany (+ 1.6%) followed by France (+ 4.3%), the United States (+ 4%) and the United Kingdom (+ 1.6%).

Furthermore, consumers are increasingly eco-friendly and are looking for organic products. Sales of organic products in 2018 exceeded 4 billion euros. Made in Italy organic exports exceeded 2.2 billion euros (first in the EU, second in the world after the US). Last year, again, 86% of Italians bought an organic product at least once a year, while 51% said they eat organic food at least once a week.

Italy is also a global leader in terms of number of companies that process organic products (18,000 companies, 3,000 more than France and Germany) and is at the European top for the number of organic farms (75,000).

Different data show that consumers are increasingly looking for healthy and sustainable alternatives: 49% of consumers choose products / brands that pay attention to sustainability; 37% research products with eco-friendly packaging; 41% declared to avoid the use of plastic as much as possible; 44% of consumers are attentive to the origin and transparency of the supply chain and want to know if the product was produced ethically.

Finally, the impact of food delivery and consumption habits is equally strong. A sector of 566 million euros and a growth of + 56% compared to 2018. In recent years, there have been many operators in the sector who invested to activate the service in new cities and to strengthen the available offer. Today 93% of Italian cities with populations exceeding 50 thousand inhabitants are covered by home delivery services (it was only 74% in 2017). About one inhabitant out of two (47%) can order ready meals online, while in 2017 this service was only accessible to one third of the Italian population.

Consumption changes and also the ways of shopping: online, click & collect in store, drive-in, subscription formulas, meal-kit services.

So, encouraging data.

Vacuum techniques for the production of carbon fiber seats and brakes on F1 cars

In recent years, automotive companies in F1 sector developed new production techniques for more ergonomic and lighter racing car seats and better performing brakes. Many of these techniques involve the use of vacuum.

Some brake discs are made, for example, in specially treated carbon fiber and silicified in a vacuum process at about 1.700 degrees. The result is a significantly higher degree of hardness and greater resistance to thermal overloads compared to cast iron gray discs.

The minimal thermal expansion avoids the onset of deformations in case of strong stresses. Furthermore, carbon ceramic brake discs provide protection against oxidation and improved soundproofing. Especially with heavy loads: excellent conditions to guarantee reduced braking distance.

As for the seats, on the other hand, forming takes place by compression molding or by infusion. In both cases, an excellent vacuum seal is fundamental for the success of pieces and for composition and strength of materials. Without underestimating lightness that makes cars more competitive.

Vuototecnica always works in collaboration with best car manufacturers, providing vacuum systems suitable for these cutting-edge productions.
