Cleaning 4.0 in the meat processing industry – higher cleaning efficiency

21.02.2019

The upcoming international fair of the meat industry IFFA from 4 to 9 May 2019 in Frankfurt will see the Fraunhofer IVV present new technologies for the efficient cleaning of meat processing plants and machinery. A versatile, mobile cleaning robot is used for this, with concomitant time and cost savings. In addition, innovative simulation software is allowing the rapid and effective design of spray cleaning systems. It guarantees effective and precisely targeted cleaning and saves time-consuming tests in the plant design phase. Both technologies will be presented in the VDMA Technology Lounge in Hall 11.1, B41.

The Mobile Cleaning Device (MCD) allows the adaptive cleaning of plants and machinery. It is a self-driven system that can be used for fully automated cleaning in the whole production area.

The cleaning carried out by the MDC is precisely adapted to its position by virtue of an optical sensor for dirt recognition and other sensors for recognition of the surroundings. Inline monitoring indicates which regions need to be cleaned and when the cleaning has been successfully completed. Data are continuously logged.

Depending on the requirements, various nozzles such as flat fan nozzles and rotary spray heads can be chosen. They can be individually switched on and off.

Simulation software for intelligent cleaning

The Fraunhofer IVV in Dresden has worked with IT specialists to develop SIMKOR software for simulating complex, open, spray cleaning systems.

This software allows cleaning systems from designers to be simulated virtually and almost in real time. The components/machinery/plants to be cleaned are entered as CAD data. This enables the cleaning effect to be controlled in a customized way. In particular, this facilitates access to difficult to clean areas.

The SIMKOR software allows cleaning systems to be virtually tested and optimized in advance. There is hence no need for complex iterative modifications to prototypes or long and costly design and optimization processes at the customer.

Im Focus: Better thermal conductivity by adjusting the arrangement of atoms

Adjusting the thermal conductivity of materials is one of the challenges nanoscience is currently facing. Together with colleagues from the Netherlands and Spain, researchers from the University of Basel have shown that the atomic vibrations that determine heat generation in nanowires can be controlled through the arrangement of atoms alone. The scientists will publish the results shortly in the journal Nano Letters.

In the electronics and computer industry, components are becoming ever smaller and more powerful. However, there are problems with the heat generation. It is...

Im Focus: First-ever visualizations of electrical gating effects on electronic structure

Scientists have visualised the electronic structure in a microelectronic device for the first time, opening up opportunities for finely-tuned high performance electronic devices.

Physicists from the University of Warwick and the University of Washington have developed a technique to measure the energy and momentum of electrons in...

Im Focus: Megakaryocytes act as „bouncers“ restraining cell migration in the bone marrow

Scientists at the University Würzburg and University Hospital of Würzburg found that megakaryocytes act as “bouncers” and thus modulate bone marrow niche properties and cell migration dynamics. The study was published in July in the Journal “Haematologica”.

Hematopoiesis is the process of forming blood cells, which occurs predominantly in the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces all types of blood cells: red...

Im Focus: Artificial neural network resolves puzzles from condensed matter physics: Which is the perfect quantum theory?

For some phenomena in quantum many-body physics several competing theories exist. But which of them describes a quantum phenomenon best? A team of researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harvard University in the United States has now successfully deployed artificial neural networks for image analysis of quantum systems.

Is that a dog or a cat? Such a classification is a prime example of machine learning: artificial neural networks can be trained to analyze images by looking...

Im Focus: Extremely hard yet metallically conductive: Bayreuth researchers develop novel material with high-tech prospects

An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bayreuth has produced a previously unknown material: Rhenium nitride pernitride. Thanks to combining properties that were previously considered incompatible, it looks set to become highly attractive for technological applications. Indeed, it is a super-hard metallic conductor that can withstand extremely high pressures like a diamond. A process now developed in Bayreuth opens up the possibility of producing rhenium nitride pernitride and other technologically interesting materials in sufficiently large quantity for their properties characterisation. The new findings are presented in "Nature Communications".

The possibility of finding a compound that was metallically conductive, super-hard, and ultra-incompressible was long considered unlikely in science. It was...
