Hefestus Challenges Vacuum Technology

24.04.2008
If your customers are not already pressuring you to stop using vacuum packaging for your products, they might soon start. Hefestus Ltd., Israel, will exhibit an innovative new concept for packaging with modified atmosphere (MAP technology) at Interpack 2008.

This new worldwide patented method of sealing trays with modified atmosphere (MAP technology) SLB™. – Shelf Life Booster, is the best alternative for the vacuum packaging that was traditionally used in the food industry. It extends product shelf life without using synthetic preservatives or freezing, thus enabling storage and delivery of food products either at room temperature or chilled.

Traditionally, food processors use vacuum packages for their products, even though many food products such as processed meat, fish and ready meals tend to change their texture and appearance in vacuum, which causes the consumers to prefer fresh products instead.

“The ready meals trend fits the hectic life style of the Western consumer. Consumers seek foods that look and feel fresh and now we can help food manufacturers achieve this target easily,” explains Oded Shtemer, CEO of Hefestus. “We anticipate a dramatic increase in demand for our Shelf Life Booster equipment during 2008-2009.”

Hefestus's unique solution combines advantages for the food processors as well as for the consumers. It keeps the food product fresh, tasty and prevents rancidity. Hefestus' sealing machines provide the lowest oxygen levels of 0.5%, or less, for extended shelf life and are easy to operate and maintain.

Hefestus is a developer and manufacturer of top sealing packaging machines. Hefestus specializes in supplying unique and complete packaging solutions for the food, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. It provides a wide variety of standard and custom-made machines, from manual to fully automatic arrays, to meet the sophisticated packaging requirements of the processors and of the consumers alike.

Im Focus: Temperature-controlled fiber-optic light source with liquid core

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.

Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...
