R&D | Machines & Equipment | Food

In order to maintain your commercial advantage, research & development (R&D) is vital – both for the design of new food products and also to maintain or increase the quality of your existing output. Food R&D technology requires machinery that can exactly replicate the processes involved in a full-scale production environment, yet have a form-factor and footprint that’s suitable for lab and development work. R&D equipment requires the ability to process small batch sizes, to analyse and meter product quality and to enable pilot lines that can be scaled up accurately.

At Vekamaf we understand the importance of R&D to your success. Our engineers work with the world’s best suppliers of food industry R&D equipment to source the most suitable hardware for your requirements. We take the time to understand your needs and to ensure we provide solutions that not only fit seamlessly within your existing R&D operation but enable you to achieve superior results. We can help you to navigate through the complex options available to bring you the best development equipment for your production environment.

Technologies for food industry R&D environments

We can help you source the right equipment from a large number of options, including allowing complete replication of entire production processes, from testing and preparation of raw ingredients through to final product dispensing or packaging.

At Vekamaf we can supply lab-scale ingredient processing machinery such as grinders, millers, mixers and drum dryers that allow you to test the impact on product quality of different preparation processes. These small-scale machines will give you results that can be scaled up accurately in full-scale production, allowing entire lines to be designed and tested before commitment to implementation.

We’re also able to advise on product quality testing equipment, particularly for delicate food products where full-scale processes can have a dramatic impact on product look, taste, aroma or mouthfeel. For example, our range of chocolate analyzers, temper meters and powder testers allow you to design high quality confectionery production lines, and then allow you to continue to monitor for continuous quality assessment.

If your production process involves distillation or extraction, we can advise on a cutting-edge range of pilot distillation and extraction plants that will produce accurate and reliable results that are able to be easily scaled into full size production processes.

When testing it’s important that lab conditions mirror the production environment precisely. Our range of dehumidifiers, pilot freeze dryers and dryers ensure that your testing and design work will scale up accurately every time.

We strive to be an inspiring conversation partner for our clients and we are continuously on the lookout to spot new trends and innovations. We work closely with a select network of international partners. Our engineers are periodically trained in food production R&D technologies. We help production facilities to design and test new production methods and products, as well as maintain the highest levels of ongoing quality control and testing. We look forward to learning more about your challenge so that we can connect you with the right expert!
