Preparation for gingerbread production 2023

Revision of an Expanding conveyor system

In many industries, the Advent season is a busy time. Not so for this customer from southern Germany - because as a gingerbread producer, the Christmas season starts much earlier for him.

Various treats for the holidays are produced, packaged and delivered to retailers many weeks in advance. Therefore, there is quiet immediately before and after Christmas. But it is not completely quiet, because the break is used to prepare the annual production for 2023.

At our customer, a manufacturer of gingerbread, the annual inspection was therefore now due. Two Märtens colleagues were on site for several days to assist with the maintenance work. All components of the Expanding conveyor system used were thoroughly checked for wear and replaced if necessary. This preventive maintenance is necessary because it must be ensured that the equipment will function trouble-free for the coming production period.

The Expanding conveyor system is used by this customer before the packaging process. It ensures that the individual products are separated from each other so that they can be packaged correctly and without any problems.
