Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum offers food options


Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum is supplying the Food Processing Industry with advanced vacuum solutions.

Apart from applications in food packaging, other food applications including vacuum baking and freeze drying are gaining more and more momentum, now requiring increased focus on fast and energetically effective vacuum solutions that are replacing aging and high-maintenance equipment at older food processing plants.

Beginning in 2015, Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum received a larger order from a Swiss equipment manufacturer. The company is a world leader in food technology and developed various methods of food processing under vacuum, providing substantial improvements in product and process quality.
