Food Technology

Engineering components for the food and beverage industry must primarily be clean, safe and durable! Products from the LiNNOTAM brand meet these requirements to the fullest extent. The addition of special additives has made Licharz one of the few companies able to manufacture „food grade“ cast polyamide.

Licharz semi-finished products and engineering components made of cast polyamides such as LiNNOTAM or conventional plastics such as PET, POM or PEEK are an effective and economical alternative to stainless steel designs for the food industry. They are also distinguished by the high strength, corrosion resistance and light weight of the engineering components. They have multiple applications for the food and beverage industry such as conveyor technology, in plant construction or apparatus engineering.

Engineered components for food technology

Extremely durable with a long service life!

Applications: Processing, transportation, packaging of food and beverages.

Whether for packaging machines, slaughterhouses, transportation or bottling plants, bakery, pasta and confectionery processing machinery, meat, fish and poultry processing machines or machines for cutting and portioning: we meet your most demanding standards with engineering components that we manufacture for you from LiNNOTAM and other plastics.

Parts such as grippers, guide elements, track rollers, support rollers, guide rollers and return rollers, cutting boards, and even general engineering parts and components from LiNNOTAM are highly regarded in the food industry because of the following properties:

  • light weight
  • colour stability
  • low cost of production
  • high corrosion resistance
  • chemical resistance (acids/alkalis)
  • high wear resistance (abrasive materials)
  • long service life and dimensional stability

We are happy to accompany you in the implementation of migration tests to assess an application according to your specifications. In addition we develop our own materials and test their suitability for contact with food. We are also pleased to offer training on „Topic EU/10/2011 – Plastics in contact with food“.
