GEA at IFFA 2022 | Hall 8 Booth G20 | The future starts today.

A global player in the food industry, at IFFA 2022, GEA will showcase its most recent developments in the food processing, freezing and packaging areas, bringing important benefits in sustainability, digitalization, product quality and productivity. GEA will also feature application excellence in poultry, meat and plant-based foods. Join us at IFFA, Hall 8 Booth G20, and discover how we can empower you today to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

Our Innovation Highlights

Be the first to discover the latest technological developments. We are proudly introducing:

GEA at IFFA 2022 | Hall 8 Booth G20 |  GEA CutMaster Gen 3

GEA CutMaster Gen 3 | The newest, third generation bowl cutter

At IFFA we will showcase our latest generation bowl cutters, renowned for their excellent performance for the cutting, mixing and emulsifying of a wide range of food applications, specifically mixes and emulsions for meat, sausage, fish, plant-based, vegetarian and processed cheese. The new range brings customer-driven technology benefits, including integrated AC drive, improved hygienic design and an online condition monitoring system, part of GEA’s PerformancePlus service program. The new condition monitoring system continuously registers the performance of the CutMaster, delivers performance reports and helps food processors optimize productivity, plan maintenance and prevent interruptions.

GEA at IFFA 2022 | Hall 8 Booth G20 |  GEA CookStar 1000 Gen 3 | Spiral oven for industrial cooking

GEA CookStar 1000 Gen 3 | Pushing the art of industrial cooking

The inventors of the spiral oven have pushed the limits for industrial cooking with the introduction of the 3rd generation GEA CookStar 1000. Giving you the possibility to cook, roast, and smoke food products with more power, unbeatable precision and better performance.  

It’s what you need every day: higher capacity, better yield, better quality and consistency, increased flexibility, greater efficiency and the lowest lifetime cost. That’s the GEA CookStar 1000.

GEA at IFFA 2022 | Hall 8 Booth G20 |  GEA ProEdge Drive | A new alternative to traditional freezing systems

GEA ProEdge Drive | A new alternative to traditional freezing systems 

The GEA ProEdge Drive is a spiral freezing solution with a robust, drum-free design, that offers superior hygiene, easy maintenance and seamless integration into your processing line. The innovative GEA patented sprocket is built for top performance under a wide range of cooling, chilling, and freezing conditions. By removing the drum, we have reduced the height of the freezer giving you more flexibility to add tiers, allowing up to 12% extra vertical capacity at the same footprint. The system also accommodates wider belts, further increasing capacity if required.

GEA at IFFA 2022 | Hall 8 Booth G20 | Fully automated GEA Slicing and Packaging line with robot loading

Fully automated GEA Slicing and Packaging line with robot loading

We will exhibit a complete, fully automatic, slicing and packaging line for calibrated products, running with recyclable mono-material film. The line includes the new GEA OptiSlicer 6000, integrated robot loading, PowerPak PLUS thermoformer with a new and unique heating system, the new TiroLabel PLUS labelling equipment and a new, end-of-line converging system developed by GEA. Key equipment is also digitally enhanced by the new GEA SmartControl HMI (Human-Machine-Interface) platform which offers easy operation based on user roles, increased process safety through version control and logs, access to historic data, and open interface integration with other line equipment. 

In addition, the exhibited slice-pack line will demonstrate GEA LineControl, a digital management platform which can automatically orchestrate the process across the full line based on pre-programmed scenarios, accessible from any control panel of the line. Therefore increasing safety, reducing downtime, rework and waste of energy and resources, with the ultimate goal of enabling food processors to work better, and help them deliver better quality.

GEA PowerHeat Z

Innovations in Thermoforming Packaging Systems

We will exhibit as a part of our GEA PowerPak PLUS Thermoforming Packaging Machine innovations to increase the sustainability and recyclability of the packaging process. The first, GEA PowerJet, is an innovative, highly efficient evacuation and gassing system without the need of side hole punches. It achieves extremely low and uniform residual oxygen content in any food package with very low operating costs. The new heating system GEA PowerHeat M is a revolutionary, energy-efficient matrix heating system for controlled, targeted, flexible heat distribution in the forming station. GEA PowerHeat Z is a zone heating system for controlled, targeted and uniform heat distribution in the forming station. Both heating systems meet the most important sustainability requirements, particularly through the use of mono-materials and thinner films.

GEA at IFFA 2022 | Hall 8 Booth G20 |  GEA SmartPacker CX400

GEA SmartPacker CX400 with innovative Smart Sealing system 

In vertical packaging, the renowned GEA SmartPacker CX400 with hygienic design will be equipped with an innovative Smart Sealing system featuring recyclable sealing strips with a substantially longer lifespan than any other technology currently on the market. In addition to mono-PE materials, the GEA Smart Sealing System is ideal for a wide variety of laminates, including many recyclable materials such as paper laminates.
