Anuga 2015

"Kronen presents: "No more destemming grapes by hand"

Beside many other machines, KRONEN GmbH presents its Traubenentstielmaschine GMD 35 (grape-destemming machine) at this year's Anuga in Cologne. "With this machine, table grapes no longer need to be destemmed by hand," CEO Stephan Zillgith explains. "The machine is perfectly suited for removing the grape stems - it happens automatically and accurately."

The CEO describes the functionality of the machine: "The grapes come into the machine with the stem attached. The soft pads rub the grapes from their stem. The grapes are neither squashed nor damaged by this gentle rolling motion." Depending on the grapes' size, the machine can process up to 240 kg of table grapes per hour. "An adjustable gap width enables the machine to effortlessly adapt to the size of the grapes," Zillgith continues. "Then the grapes fall onto a conveyor belt, which carefully transports the fruit for further processing or the final check."

New approaches
"Being the world's leading trade fair of the food industry, the Anuga offers us the possibility to present ourselves to a somewhat different audience," Zillgith explains. "An audience that offers different approaches than Fruit Logistica might. The Anuga is very international and besides Germany, France, Holland and England, the American market is also a very important market to us."

To the catering, convenience, delicacy, and food industry, the firm KRONEN belongs to the world's leading suppliers with means to process lettuce, vegetables and fruit. It develops and produces individual machines, special purpose machines and complete processing lines for preparing, cutting, washing, drying, peeling and packaging of foodstuffs.
