GKM goes digital and offers virtual factory acceptance tests 15.10.2020
n the Corona crisis, GKM is breaking new ground and offering customers the opportunity to participate in virtual factory acceptance tests online
I Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the travel restrictions that apply as a result, GKM Siebtechnik organizes its daily business in virtual space. Since customers are currently not allowed to travel to the factory acceptance tests of their new screening machines in person, GKM Siebtechnik conducts the Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) virtually instead. Nothing has changed in the course of the FAT, except that the customer is not physically present. In accordance with the FAT protocol, all production and safety-relevant tests are carried out together with the customer at the machine and are transmitted live via webcam. Also appointments / arrangements with customers are carried out digitally in order to remain in contact with the customers despite the difficult situation.
Heatable Control Screening Machine for Screening of Chocolate Mass 25.08.2020
During the production or treatment of chocolate, the use of a control screening machine is one of the key elements of the process. During this step, it is guaranteed that no foreign particles or impurities will remain in chocolate mass. It is essential for the entire process that the chocolate does not cool down and remains liquid during screening. A constant temperature of approx. 40°C must be granted during production to ensure the gloss and high quality of the end product. For this application the GKM control screening machine type KTS-VS2 has been further developed. For a permanent water circulation with a temperature of 35 – 65°C this screening machine is equipped with a double-walled cone in order to maintain a continuous screening of the viscous chocolate mass. Certainly the machine can be equipped with other important features and characteristics especially designed for the requirements of the industry such as: Complete stainless steel design, all kind of food-grade surfaces, etc. This control screening machine can be easily integrated into the production process.
