Experience how the Heat and Control’s unique HeatWave Fryer operates by visualising animated 3D models of the equipment via the new Augmented Reality (AR) app that they have created. Using a drawing of the HeatWave Fryer—a specialised marker image—that acts as a trigger point to view the animation on the app, customers (and potential ones too) can try out and experience how the fryer works from 360 degrees, as one moves around the image with just a smartphone or tablet.
With the size and sophisticated nature of many of such equipment, like the HeatWave Fryer, it can be difficult to showcase these at tradeshows. The new AR app allows customers from anywhere in the world can now view the company’s equipment and experience it virtually first at their own convenience, simply by using their mobile device. Users of the app can interact with and learn more about the machines through the app, as well as send enquiries to get directly in touch with a local sales representative for more information.
The heated shelf merchandisers from Alto-Shaam now include individually controlled heated shelves that can keep food warm at different required temperatures for hours at the highest level of quality.
Featuring the Halo Heat fanless technology for precise, even temperature, these merchandisers give operators flexibility over their holding needs. Operators can merchandise a cross-section of menu items, such as grab-and-go products, including rotisserie chickens, pizzas, sandwiches, and more.
These can be presented in aesthetically pleasing displays while providing consumers with fresh, hot, and ready-to-eat meals.
What customers and end consumers want is most important in food processing, says Jim Strang, CEO, Asia/Pacific and Europe, Heat and Control. He elaborates on how food processors can meet these wants.
Heat and control’s business manager for packaging and inspection systems Robert Marguccio explores the inspection process.
