With a knack for sensitive raw materials
Especially the handling of sensitive bulk materials, such as milk powder or alternative proteins, requires comprehensive know-how of the raw material properties. Thanks to our expertise in raw material analysis and our 70 years of experience in plant engineering, we are able to handle even these demanding raw materials safely.

Batch purity, continuous tracking & tracing and hygienic product safety: Come to our booth and find out more about our AZO solutions - we look forward to meeting you!

Find out about the following key topics at our booth:

Do you need gentle conveying over long distances with a high conveying capacity?
Then AZO®MULTIAIR dense phase conveying is the right choice for you! 

The injection of secondary air drastically reduces the friction between the conveying line and the product, which guarantees that the fluidization state of the product is optimally maintained - even over long conveying distances. This makes AZO®MULTIAIR dense phase conveying ideal for handling sensitive raw materials, such as milk powder or alternative proteins.

Your AZO advantages at a glance

  • Gentle on the product
  • Low wear
  • Low level of dehomogenization
  • High conveying capacity
  • Long transport distances
  • Energy saving due to targeted transport air supply



Some micro-quantities are difficult or inefficient to automate. But it is precisely these micro-quantities that often have a decisive influence on the recipe. For this reason, we have developed AZO ManDos - an operator-guided, manual weighing center that combines all the necessary components.

Scales, surge bins, desks, suction systems, barcode readers and label printers, including the necessary software - all combined in one smart system!

Your AZO advantages at a glance

  • Can be used as a stand-alone system
  • Can be expanded to a comprehensive, networked batch production system
  • Logical user guidance
  • End-to-end documentation
  • Identification of raw materials
  • Order, recipe and article management
  • Storage place management
  • Creation of calibration data
  • Host interface
  • Can be validated

Manual weighing of minor and micro components bears risks and is prone to errors. The more components and batches come together, the greater the risk to product safety and quality. 

With the AZO COMPONENTER® Step, we make it possible for you to automatically weigh in these minor and micro components, such as pigments, dyes or flavors, to the exact gram. This enhances product safety, increases production efficiency, and ensures the hygiene and batch purity of your products. All in compliance with strict, industry-specific requirements.

Your AZO advantages at a glance

  • Maximum product safety thanks to tracking & tracing
  • Process steps and weighing results are reproducible
  • Consistent, strict adherence to formulation
  • High levels of accuracy and cycle times
  • Rigorous batch separation, resulting in prevention of cross-contamination
  • Can be expanded with further modules, providing flexibility when changing over products
  • High throughput rates thanks to fully automatic filling and transportation within the plant
  • Allows effective production planning
  • Less outlay for cleaning 
  • Target containers can be provided with liners if needed
  • Compliance with stringent hygiene requirements
  • Reduction of physical strain and mental stress in staff
