Industry 4.0, the fourth industrial revolution, is heralding intelligent, networked production systems. This will mean more efficient, rapid and flexible work processes in companies. The new era requires changes in and optimisation of the value-adding chains of all producers in the sectors of cement, building materials and minerals, chemicals, foodstuffs, petroleum and gas. Standardising and modularising many individual process steps is required. HAVER & BOECKER is taking on this challenge and is welcoming visitors under the motto: "Time to chain" to INTERPACK in Düsseldorf, Stand D08, Hall 12, May 8-14, 2014.

HAVER & BOECKER and its leading technology brands of IBAU HAMBURG, BEHN + BATES, FEIGE FILLING and NEWTEC BAG PALLETIZING conceptualise customised solutions for transporting, stocking, filling, packing and palletising cement, building materials, minerals, chemicals and liquid and pasty products. At INTERPACK, HAVER & BOECKER will show how the innovative machine technologies of different brands can be linked together to form complete systems. This allows modules within the customer's process to be maximised, or total systems to be newly defined and set up.

"Time to chain" also means that it is time for new service concepts in the world of HAVER & BOECKER. Initiated by the fifth generation of management taking the helm at the family-managed company early this year, HAVER & BOECKER aims to mesh the linking of HAVER technologies more strongly with the success of its customers through new and innovative services. HAVER & BOECKER offers an automation platform that enables the networking of various process steps within the customers' production process. This allows the chance to optimise the entire product flow by using countless analysis possibilities.

HAVER & BOECKER presents the FFS ADAMS® as a main feature exhibit. This Form-Fill-Seal system fills powder-type products - even those with difficult flow properties - into air-tight and compact PE bags. Now that the ADAMS® has established itself in the building products industry, customers in the chemical and foodstuffs industries are discovering its advantages.

BEHN + BATES, the specialist in the foodstuffs sector, seamlessly integrates systems into the process chain of foodstuff manufacturers. BEHN + BATES introduces the INTEGRA® system in addition to the ADAMS® technology. INTEGRA® technology allows dust-free and reliable filling of loose, bulk products into valve bags using the integrated Plug & Pack concept.

Innovative palletizing technology is offered by NEWTEC BAG PALLETIZING. The challenge for the palletizing specialist is the production of clean and compact stacking of filled bags that is in precision harmony with the upstream packing process. To represent the performance capability of the system, NEWTEC BAG PALLETIZING is presenting the 1800 palletizing series.

FEIGE FILLING is now introducing new paths when it comes to filling liquid and pasty products. The new generation PAILFILL® will be making its debut at INTERPACK 2014! Thus FEIGE will be launching a variable bucket-filling system onto the market. The concept offers a high level of flexibility through the use of individual modular planning, an intuitive operator concept, and simpler possibilities for expansion.

HAVER analysis machines, analysis sieves, and the revolutionary CPA technology are yet another essential link within the HAVER customers' process chain. Exact knowledge of the product's properties is critical for quality control during and after the process. And to allow customers to precisely measure the efficiency of their value adding chains, HAVER & BOECKER offers them a complete range of analysis technology.
