Brabender at iba 2018: Smart workflows and world firsts

Duisburg-based Brabender GmbH & Co. KG is debuting its world food-industry firsts at iba 2018 in Munich in line with the Smart Transformation exhibition motto.

The world’s leading baking, confectionery and snack industry exhibition takes place every three years. iba will again be the venue for international exhibitors and their trade visitors from more than 150 countries from September 15 to 20, 2018.

What are smart workflows?
A demo lab and a series of innovative, digitally networked devices await visitors to the Brabender Booth 154 in Hall B5. This so-called smart workflow is reflected in this year’s exhibition motto. The automatic transfer of data that results from this smart interlinkage of separate devices increases reliability and at the same time saves time and money.

This is what Brabender is exhibiting at its iba booth
The technology leader in premium quality laboratory devices for the food and chemicals industries is operating a live demo laboratory consisting of the Brabender 3-phase system:

Phase 1 – Farinograph: makes statements about the water absorption and kneading properties of dough
Phase 2 – Extensograph: provides reliable information about the baking properties of a dough
Phase 3 – Amylograph: paints an accurate picture of enzyme activity in flours and whole grains

as well as the

GlutoPeak: a fast and reliable method of measuring gluten quality in whole grain, flour, vital gluten and baking mixtures (incorporating Brabender MetaBridge software).

Visitors can also look forward to seeing the Brabender Moisture Tester MT-CA in action – a proven device that can simultaneously analyze up to ten samples.

Innovation made by Brabender – an overview of the highlights
This device is also marking its world debut and will be demonstrated live – a user-friendly, flexible compact extruder that is ideal for developing products and formulations/recipes for food extrusion, protein texturization and TVP (texturized vegetable proteins) purposes.

A new, all-purpose viscometer will also be on show for the first time. This device provides a full picture of the viscosity and gelatinization properties of and enzyme activity in flour, starch, liquids, various viscose and paste-like mixtures used at various production and application stages.
