ibonharts complete automated bread slicing and bagging system on show at the worlds largest bakery fair

Munich IBA World Market for Baking: 16th - 21st September 2012

The IBA is a massive triennial exhibition and a superb opportunity for bakers and confectioners to check out the latest technology and trends in the commercial baking industry.

With twelve halls ram-packed with exhibitors from all over the world, it attracted around 70,000 visitors from 177 countries over the six days, all keen to see gadgets, machines, display units, cake decorations and plenty of mouth-watering produce to enhance productivity and increase sales.

We had use of a 60m2 stand and whilst offering the delights of English real ale and the quintessential afternoon tea to passers-by, we did actually get some work done - exhibiting a complete automated system bread slicing and bagging system LB270 with a B51 Slicer and RP Clipper, we also had a bit of room left over for a semi automatic system featuring the IB30 - Ibonharts bag flattening system and heat sealer.

The exhibition can only be described as a complete success with several large sales and lots of enquiries as a result. We really enjoyed sharing our ideas and new additions to the bread slicing and bagging machinery: the embossing printer on the RP Clipper which applies a date without an additional ink ribbon and the bag flattening and vacuum device which is ideal for bread roll and confectionary products.

We have taken away lots of feedback and inquries from the IBA in Munich and we will be working on implementing and creating new innovations before the next Munich IBA in 2015.
