During the 7 and 12 of May 2016 JK SOMME participated in the international fair IFFA (Frankfurt - Germany). This fair is held every four years and is considered the most important in the world for the promotion and sale of equipment for the meat industry (cutters, mixers, clippers, injection, stuffers, equipment for slaughterhouses, casing supplies ... etc). On this occasion the show was attended by more than 63,000 visitors from over 143 different countries. An authentic record being the 2016 edition the busiest of all previously made.
In the large booth of VOS SCHOTT GmbH (www.vos-schott.com) who is our exclusive agent and technical service for Germany - Austria - Poland we exhibited one irregular can seamerNEPTUN 120 able to seam up to 80 cans per minute. The can seamer had an efficient under cover steam injection and was equipped with a tooling to seam the classic rectangular cans used for canning corned beef - luncheon meat (dimensions of 93x47x92 mm - 340 grams). With this seamer a high degree of vacuum within the can is achieved. This is absolutely necessary for some canned meat recipes. Another highly valued advantage of the NEPTUN 120 is the possibility of seaming a wide range of round cans. Soon we will be showing and promoting the multiple other members of the Neptun family (40, 60 and 60R) plus adding new videos on our You-Tube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/SommeCanSeamers).
There were many customers and friends who visited our booth and we really appreciate their interest in our company and can seaming machinery. Finally special thanks to Volker Schott, Nina, Philipp, Claudia, Angelika and the whole team of Vos Schott GmbH. It was a very productive week in which we had the opportunity to know us better and delight ourselves with the varied German cuisine and great beers. Ein Prosit und viele Dank!
