The association FERA (Forschungs- und Entwicklungsverein für Robotik- und Automationslösungen e.V.) brings the know-how of specialists and market leaders in the field of automation and mechanical engineering together. The aim of the association is to integrate innovations into existing plants by modular automation solutions. Target of the fusion: transformation of entire value-added chains. Market trends can be integrated into concrete solution concepts and innovative companies can play a pioneer role in Industry 4.0.
On January 1st 2018, ViscoTec joined the FERA. With this membership ViscoTec will have synergy effects and a high exchange of experiences with other members of the association. The customers advantage is an individual and perfect solution for their processes – developed by the companies operating in the packaging and food sector. The bundling of the respective core competences in a project, a machine or a plant makes it possible to implement the perfect way with the best components.
With many years of know-how and expertise ViscoTec represents FERA in the field of dosing and filling technology. With the proven endless piston principle on which ViscoTec’s technology is based, even complicated applications with highly viscous, solids-laden and shear-sensitive materials can be implemented as part of a complete system.
Another advantage of the FERA membership for ViscoTec is the cooperation with research institutions and scientific institutes. This aspect is an important approach to generate improvements and innovative processes in the food sector around dosing and filling in combination with robotics and automation.
