Opening of the FREY „Technology Center“
Opening of the FREY „Technology Center“!
The managing directors of Heinrich Frey Maschinenbau GmbH, Martin Frey and Heinrich Frey could open the new „Technology Center“ in Herbrechtingen after the completion at the end of June 2020. The inauguration ceremony could not be held due to the Corona pandemic. On two floors with a total surface of more than 2,200 m², besides a 600 m² technical center, new office space for 25 workplaces, a showroom as well as training and event rooms have been generated. The company invested more than 4.5 million Euros in the new building. Sustainable and climate-friendly constructionThe most modern “Technology Center” in Herbrechtingen was largely implemented with regional construction companies from the Ostalb region. After 18 months of construction, our new “Technology Center” is finally ready for occupancy. The new building is equipped with meeting rooms and a technical center on the ground floor as well as office workplaces and a training room with the latest media technology on the upper floor. The building was designed in accordance with the latest EG55 energy standard. A PV system with 155 KW was installed on the roof and supplies electricity to the new building and a large part of our production facilities during summer. The cold storage rooms can be operated with low energy through heat recovery and most mordern MSR technology.
Demonstration of Frey filling technology and product development
In the future, our investment will give our customers and partners the opportunity to receive even more individual and personal advice and to deal with our variety of products. "In our new" Technology Center "we can work closely with users and partners to develop and demonstrate individual solution concepts," explains Heinrich Frey. Frey is pursuing the goal of continuing to meet the increasing demand for special machines and solution concepts for Industry 4.0.In times of digitalization, the requirement profile for filling machines is changing increasingly. At the same time, the new premises offer a modern and contemporary working environment for the employees. Frey has already reacted to this development and is intensifying the training measures for its worldwide sales and service partners. The new “Technology Center” offers the ideal platform for this. The new building will be used for dealer and product training, events and meetings. In our technical center, customer-specific product developments can be performed in order to achieve optimal results. Especially for our customers and those interested in vegetarian and vegan products, there is great potential for our range of machines and our attachments.The technical center was designed like a food company. From the refrigerated delivery of goods through cold and deep-freeze rooms to the storage of raw goods and end products. In the production facilities, the raw materials can be prepared for further processing with highly developed processing machines (mincer, vacuum cutter, mixer, etc.).Various filling lines are available for the filling and forming process. Here Frey shows the most modern filling technology in all its facets. Also integrated packaging technologies with many possible interfaces are demonstrated. Industry 4.0 solutions for process control and monitoring of course can be shown as an integrated component. The thermal treatment takes place in separate rooms with the most modern cooking, smoking, air conditioning and maturing technology.In our modern show kitchen the produced products can be boiled, cooked, grilled or deep-fried. Afterwards the final products can be tasted in a pleasant atmosphere. With the important taste and sensory assessment of the results, our customers can enjoy the fascination of our industry.
