The power control system for the range of Weber slicers and infeeders has been granted a prestigious ‘Red Dot’ award in recognition of its outstanding design and simple operation for high-performance slicing lines.

The Weber range, available in the UK and Ireland from Interfood Technology, is widely acknowledged as a leader in slicing technology.  The Weber Power Control system, launched earlier this year at the IFFA trade show, was one of 6,800 products from 43 countries submitted to the 2013 Red Dot Design Awards, one of the world’s largest design competitions.  The competition is staged annually in Germany by the Design Zentrum NRW, with the Red Dot , recognised as an independent seal of quality, only presented to a select number of entries which are perceived as the best in their respective category.  Weber Power Control won its Red Dot in the Communication Design category.

The most important machine performance indicators are provided on screen to the operator, such as portion capacity, yield, giveaway and portion weights. The operating interface also guides the operator through pre-set trouble-shooting procedures to follow, if required, with the capability for easy adaptation of the power control system to meet customers’ specific requirements.
