Lödige Ploughshare® Mixer FKM
Lödige Ploughshare® Mixer FKM

Lödige Maschinenbau at Anuga FoodTec 2024

At Anuga FoodTec Lödige Maschinenbau will be demonstrating, how Ploughshare® and CoriMix® Mixers can be used in in the production of meat substitutes.
Vegan meat alternatives made from protein sources such as cereals or pulses require process engineering solutions that enable high throughputs and homogeneous component mixing. As Gebrüder Lödige Maschinenbau GmbH will be demonstrating at this year’s Anuga FoodTec (Stand 10.1 / G091), Ploughshare® and CoriMix® Mixers can meet this requirement at several points in the process chain.

The industrial production process for meat substitutes involves a number of stages, from the preparation of protein sources into a protein concentrate or isolate and texturised vegetable proteins: (TVP) through to the finished meat equivalent. Mixing dry additives before extrusion as well as liquids into the extruded TVP play a key role in the quality of the end product.
The manufacturing process can generally be carried out continuously or in batch operation. It is also possible to use a combination of both processes in a quasi-continuous operation. The ideal operating mode depends on the respective application and the customer’s individual situation. This means that a batch solution is generally easier to implement and offers greater flexibility, e.g. when integrating into existing environmental conditions Continuous systems, on the other hand, enable higher throughputs with comparatively smaller machines. The larger the production volumes, the more important these advantages become.

Proven batch and continuous mixers

Two model series from Lödige Maschinenbau are perfect for the production of meat substitutes – from laboratory scale to large-scale industrial realisation. The horizontal Lödige Ploughshare® Mixer offers an optimum solution for batch operation, while the Lödige CoriMix® Mixer demonstrates its strengths in the continuous process.
Lödige Ploughshare® and CoriMix® Mixers are available in different sizes and designs. The customised design of machines and systems is just as much a matter of course as strict compliance with current GMP guidelines and food regulations.
However, Lödige Maschinenbau does not only supply the mixer(s). As a solution provider, the company also realises entire systems to cover the entire process chain from the protein source to the meat substitute. Lödige Maschinenbau supports the customer in the realisation of the entire system, from planning to commissioning.
