For both new and existing machinery, the use of plastic parts can help ensure food safety.
As food-borne illnesses become more common, the design of food processing machinery grows increasingly important. For both new and existing machinery, the use of plastic parts can help ensure food safety. However, only certain plastics are appropriate for food processing applications. With unparalleled expertise in plastics, Dielectric can be a valuable partner in selecting, designing and machining these parts.
Our application engineers work regularly with OEMs and food processors to identify parts and assemblies that can be made from plastic for long wear, easy clean-up and increased food safety. We identify food-safe plastics for applications, assist in the design of machinery and, through long-standing relationships with material sources, obtain raw materials at substantial savings. Finally, we machine parts, both simple and complex, with plastics that withstand the rigors of food processing environments.
Food retailers turn to us when they need customized plastic parts or components such as cutting boards. We design and machine cost-effective customized solutions that meet the specific needs of retail outlets.
Contact us to learn how we can help you optimize the price, performance and safety of your machinery.
There are a growing number of food-safe plastics that are extremely durable, withstand temperature extremes and are resistant to both chemicals and moisture. These plastics are excellent alternatives to metal for food processing machinery parts and assemblies.
