“We work closely with our customers to understand their needs and to stay informed on the emerging trends in the food industry. The top priorities in food production equipment right now are cleanability and durability,” said Matt Rodebush, global segment manager, food and beverage, ABB’s NEMA Motors Division. “If a motor is easier to clean and maintain, we increase the safety of our food supply. It’s that simple. But our customers don’t just want equipment that’s easy to clean; they need motors that can stand up to those harsh cleaning conditions and keep going. We’ve addressed both requests with the enhanced design of our Food Safe stainless-steel motors.”
