Lödige as a partner for the
Lödige systems offer the required mixing and process precision for an ideal process design in a wide production range. Our customers include notable food industry brands. Our systems and solution concepts are used worldwide, based on decades of practical experience in the construction of mixers and treatment systems for food producers. It goes without saying that we provide a “Hygienic Design” of our machine engineering solutions and also implement extensive cleaning systems.
Our machines are built according to current international regulations for food-safe hygienic design and are adapted perfectly to your process through customer- and product-specific adaptation. Our range of services is supplemented by extensive after-sales support.
Process engineering solutions
Based on numerous process engineering options, Lödige systems can be designed and used for numerous products and production steps. For instance, in addition to the conventional mixing step, it is possible to combine the additional process steps usually required by the food industry in one Lödige system. This can make, for example, work-intensive pre-mixing unnecessary. All systems listed below are available both in production sizes and in sizes suitable for Laboratory work.
