Nimo-KG Presents Bestselling Hydraulic Tipper and Belt-Driven Lift on IFFA, May 14-19

Nimo-KG returns to IFFA, the world’s leading trade fair for the meat industry, and will present two bestsellers that streamlines the production process for manufacturers in the meat industry. The Hydraulic tipper SKV 300 HA-T and the belt-driven lift SK 800 MKB.

“These are two of our newest machines that has been very popular in the past year, especially in the meat industry. The belt lift is suitable for companies with demanding production processes and high standards of hygiene, and the hydraulic tipper is an upgraded version of the company’s hydraulic tipping machine for trolleys”, says Martin Olsson, MD at Nimo-KG.

Over the years, Nimo-KG’s lifting and tipping equipment has made the company from southern Sweden a well-known name in the food industry, and in particular the meat sector. The previous year’s Nimo-KG attendance at IFFA have resulted in several orders, including from Hong Kong and Singapore. IFFA gathers more than 60,000 visitors from 140 different countries.

“IFFA is a unique meeting place for the international meat industry with visitors from all over the world. The goal is to network both with potential final customers and resellers on the international market. It’s also a valuable opportunity for us to receive feedback and suggestions from resellers and potential clients. Customized and tailor-made is our specialty, and therefore it’s valuable to get access to the opinions of the end users.”

Experts in customization

Nimo-KG supplies tailored solutions for internal product handling to customers all over the world. Since it began, the company has continually developed its range of machines and equipment, adapting them according to their customers’ widely diverse needs. Nimo-KG always takes part from start to finish and takes care of any adjustments and additions.

“Our strong side is customization. Because container sizes, emptying heights and accessible spaces are just some of the conditions that vary continuously, each and every machine is designed individually,” says Martin Olsson, MD at Nimo-KG.

Nimo-KG delivers third machine order to world-leading fruit preparation company

Product handling company Nimo-KG has now delivered a third repeat order to a world-leading Canadian fruit preparation company. The order consisted of three of Nimo-KG’s SK 800 MK2 double column lifts and a number of transport trolleys.

“The customer works with fruit preparation and is one of the world’s largest suppliers, for example to dairies. They have built an entirely new production line where our machines will be installed to lift and empty the product into their receiver containers. This being the third repeat order shows the customer is happy and that we can deliver high quality machines to world-leading manufacturing companies regardless of industry” says Nimo-KG sales person, Carina Thern. 

Nimo-KG received the first order from this end customer a couple of years ago, and now the company has delivered a third set of double column lifts to Canada. The lifts are specially designed to fit into the end customer’s production process.

“We came up with a customised solution with our SK 800 MK2 double column lift, where special large pneumatic funnels were installed to make the production flow as efficient as possible. Working on the basis of the customer’s specific needs and conditions to find the very best solution is something we excel at”, says Carina Thern.

Nimo-KG’s SK 800 MK2 double column lift is used in a number of different industries, including in food processing, where it is used to lift and empty products from large containers, for example into forming machines, fillers, grinders, and mixers. The lift comes in a number of different variants, and can be customised to integrate into all production processes. Read more about the SK 800 MK2.

Nimo-KG deliver custom made conveyor to one of Germany’s largest turkey producers in record time

The product handling company Nimo-KG have now delivered a custom made conveyor to one of Germany’s largest producers of turkey. The custom made conveyor was designed, built, delivered and installed in only eight weeks’ time.

“The client had built a new production hall and needed to transport products from ground level up to higher levels. We tailored the solution based on height and product, and they are very pleased”, says Peter Becker, Area Sales Manager at Nimo-KG.

Nimo-KG was recommended by an existing client in Germany, who had already installed a production line for the turkey producer. The recently delivered vertical conveyor is based on a previous machine design by Nimo-KG.

“Many clients request tailored solutions. In this instance we adapted the conveyor to the product and height. It consists of three components and was delivered in parts, to be mounted at the location. Furthermore, the delivery time was exceptionally short, progressing from quote to mounted product in eight weeks. The usual time frame is often twice as long.”

Nimo-KG, from Kågeröd in the south of Sweden, collaborates with most of the main machine providers in Europe. Germany has a strong and expanding market, where most new clients are found through recommendation and word-of-mouth.

“At the first meeting with the turkey producer we discovered that they already had several of our machines that they had bought through retailers. Everyone within the industry knows about Nimo-KG, which is fun since we are a small business from Skåne. We are growing world-wide”, says Peter Becker.

Nimo-KG launches new belt lift: “Great hygiene benefits for the food industry”


Martin Olsson, MD at Nimo-KG that recently launched a new belt-driven lift.

Better hygiene and easier maintenance. These are some of the benefits of Nimo-KG’s new belt-driven lift. The company from Skåne, Sweden, designed the lift following requests from companies in several different industries and countries, including a major German manufacturer of process equipment for the food industry.

“So far, we’ve sold the new lift to companies that produce salads and charcuterie. But it’s suitable for all kinds of production in the food industry, and the lift’s hygiene aspects are of particular benefit,” says Martin Olsson, MD at Nimo-KG.

Nimo-KG supplies several different kinds of lifts for use in e.g. the charcuterie segment. The lifts are well suited anywhere in the food industry where product in a container must be lifted and emptied. When a German process equipment manufacturer sought a belt-driven lift, Nimo-KG developed the new SK 800 MKB lift.

Instead of using a chain, the lift is driven with belts. This has many advantages, but also requires a more complex design. Belts lead to better hygiene and easier maintenance; they’re easier to clean, they can withstand harsh chemicals and need no lubrication or tensioning.

“The belt lift is suitable for companies with demanding production processes and high standards of hygiene. The German customer already had a belt lift, but one with major technical problems. We’re therefore pleased with the confidence they’ve shown in us and proud to have solved their problems by creating a new, reliable solution.”

“Our strong side is customisation. Because container sizes, emptying heights and accessible spaces are just some of the conditions that vary continuously, each and every machine is designed individually. This also applies to our new belt lift,” says Martin Olsson, MD at Nimo-KG.

Nimo-KG presents new generation of lifting and tipping equipment at IFFA, the World’s largest trade fair for the meat industry

IFFA

There is no better place to introduce the next generation’s product handling machine than at one of the World’s largest food trade fairs. Therefore, Nimo-KG will bring the newly developed single column lift SKV 300 C4 to IFFA, the World’s leading international trade fair for the meat industry, which will be held in Frankfurt between 4 and 9 May.

“Nimo-KG is a supplier of machines and equipment for all of the food industry, but meat and charcuterie are our major customer segments. Therefore, IFFA is a suitable forum for us to introduce the latest in product handling from Sweden and Skåne,” says Peter Becker, sales manager for Germany at Nimo-KG.

Over the years, Nimo-KG’s lifting and tipping equipment has made the Skåne company a well-known name in the food industry. The previous year’s Nimo-KG attendance at IFFA have resulted in several orders, including from Hong Kong and Singapore. IFFA gathers more than 60,000 visitors from 140 different countries.

“IFFA is a unique meeting place for the international meat industry with visitors from all over the world. The goal is to network both with potential final customers and resellers on the international market.”

I addition to the new single column lift Nimo-KG will go to Frankfurt with another newly developed machine – SKV 300 HA-T is an upgraded version of the company’s hydraulic tipping machine for trolleys.

“The trade fair is a unique opportunity to show and demonstrate the newly developed machines. Here, we will have the opportunity to receive feedback and suggestions from resellers and potential clients. Customised and tailor-made is our specialty, and therefore it’s valuable to get access to the opinions of the end users already during the development phase.”

All the staff from Nimo-KG will go to Frankfurt and IFFA, both to meet up with existing resellers, make contacts and to find new inspiration.

“It is important for our designers to be there in person to see the latest innovations and how food production is developing, since our machines are a natural part of this development. We look forward to a rewarding and inspirational week in Frankfurt,” says Peter Becker.

Requests for improved hygiene and safety behind Nimo KG’s increased sales in Canada

Nimo-KG is selling more single and two-column lifts than ever to the Canadian manufacturing industry. In 2018, one of this Swedish company’s distributors in Canada contributed to a considerable increase in orders received.

“It is primarily the Canadian foodstuffs and pharmaceutical industries that use our lifts. They regard them as the market’s most safe and hygienic machines,” explains Carina Thern, Area Sales Manager at Nimo-KG.

Nimo-KG has been delivering lifts to Canada for many years, however, 2018 turned out as a record year. The Nimo-KG distributors in the country report that increased awareness of hygiene and safety are deciding factors in the growing demand for single and two-column lifts.

“These lifts are designed to ensure uncompromising hygienic standards in a given production setting, which of course is an important element in the foodstuffs industry. By customising the machines to the specific production systems of our clients, we help them to always meet their demands on hygiene,” says Carina Thern, and she continues:

“In Canada, there are currently also efforts under way to reduce work-related injuries in the manufacturing sector. Production equipment upgrades constitute one part of this effort, and here our lifts stand out as one of the solutions since they guarantee a very high level of safety to the operators.”

Carina is confident that Nimo-KG will continue to increase its deliveries to North America, chiefly by maintaining a high level of satisfaction among its customers.

“As an OEM supplier, customer satisfaction is the best way to expand our cooperation with the distributors and this way deliver even more machines during 2019.”

The single-column lift is setting sales records – a new generation will soon be introduced

Nimo-KG is selling more single-column lifts than ever. In 2018, 110 lifts were delivered to manufacturing industries around the world and now the company from Skåne, Sweden is in full swing with the development of the next generation single-column lifts that are scheduled to hit the market by mid-year.

“We are capturing new market shares as a growing number of industries are becoming aware of our lifts, and the increase in sales will continue into the new year. Among other things, the new generation of single-column lifts has an updated design and several new features that will improve both ergonomics and safety,” says Martin Olsson, CEO of Nimo-KG.

Of the 110 lifts with the designation SKV 300 C3 sold by Nimo-KG in 2018, most were delivered to the food industry, in particular to the meat packing industry in Sweden, Germany, Norway and France.

“Europe is our biggest market, but we sell to customers all over the world and to a wide range of industries. One example is our recent delivery of a special solution with a single-column lift to a manufacturer of halogen lamps who needed a new way of handling discarded lamps without the risk of glass splinters being spread over the premises.

To meet the growing demand and to increase production capacity, Nimo-KG has implemented a number of measures, including the recruitment of Per-Erik Skeppstedt as new Electrical Manager of the company’s newly started department for industrial automation.

“Having that type of in-house expertise means that we can take on more projects since lead times can be shortened, but first and foremost that we now have full quality assurance even on this part of the product design process. Even though we are selling increasingly more machines, the most important thing is to always ensure that we maintain the highest quality in every machine we deliver.”

Some examples of new features on the upgraded single-column lift, SKV 300 C4, are the possibility of full-cover chain protection, a safer and more ergonomic trolley catch and a new solution for the chain tensioner.

“It is in our dialogue with our customers that we receive feedback about their specific needs and this is how we can further improve our machines. The upgrades we are now implementing are based on this feedback,” says Martin Olsson.

Swedish company equips Switzerland’s largest bakery

In the Swiss city of Schafisheim just outside Zurich, Coop operates the country’s largest bakery. When some of its equipment needed to be upgraded, the first priority was to install tippers that could handle the heavy, compact doughs. The assignment went via dealer Neumeyer AG to Nimo-KG, a company from little Kågeröd in Skåne, Sweden, that manufactures customized food processing machines.

“The challenge was to modify the machines to tip out the dough quickly and effectively and then remove all of the remaining dough from the container. After a visit to the bakery to see for ourselves what needed to be done, we came up with a solution the customer was very pleased with, and which streamlined the production line,” says Eva Johansson, a seller at Nimo-KG.

The Coop bakery in Switzerland produces 60,000 tonnes of bread every year. In this kind of production, all of the equipment has to work faultlessly every day. To handle the compact doughs in the best way, Nimo-KG fitted the tippers with two motors that constantly rotate the machine’s containers, which causes the dough to detach from the rims.

“Then we designed a special pneumatic dough scraper to remove the remaining pieces of dough from the tipper. It’s a solution we’ve used in earlier assignments, and it also turned out to be perfect for Coop’s production.”

Nimo-KG was founded 60 years ago, and every year it delivers more than 200 machines to customers all over the world. Even though every assignment is different, the company’s approach is always the same.

“No matter the size of the customer or the job, we always have the same approach and focus on customized food processing machines to suit every customer’s unique production environments and requirements. The machines work just as well in Switzerland’s biggest bakery as they do here in our local bakery back home in Sweden.”

When the specially adapted tippers were delivered to the Coop bakery in November, Nimo-KG was there to help with the installation.

“The machines are working as intended, and the customer is very pleased. Should any new requirements pop up for Coop in the future, we’ll do everything we can to meet them, too,” says Eva Johansson.

Lantmännen opts for tailor-made bakery solutions

After 20 years with the same machines and unrelenting disruptions to production, Lantmännen Unibake decided to update some of its production equipment at its bakery in Copenhagen. The goal was to find a supplier who could deliver tailor-made bakery solutions for Lantmännen’s unique production line; they found the solution at Nimo-KG in Skåne, Sweden.

“Many machine manufacturers have a fixed range of lifting and tipping equipment that cannot be adapted or modified. This is where Nimo-KG is far ahead of its industry colleagues; they took a look at our production and came with proposals for adapting their machines to our process. They took care of the entire process from concept and design to installation,” says Kenneth Staal, technical manager at Lantmännen Unibake.

Production is round-the-clock, seven days a week at Lantmännen Unibake’s bakery in the outskirts of Copenhagen. With the aim of increasing their production rate, they contacted Nimo-KG from Skåne, Sweden, which supplies tailor-made equipment for product handling to the food industry worldwide.

“Just like production companies in any industry, companies in the bakery industry have their own unique conditions and challenges, and therefore need tailor-made bakery solutions. Our challenge, which is the thing we find most rewarding, is to design solutions that ensure our customer’s needs are met,” says Anders Pålsson of Nimo-KG.

As technical manager at Lantmännen Unibake, Kenneth Staal has collaborated with many equipment suppliers. The reason they opted for Nimo-KG was not only its expertise in finding unique solutions for the bakery’s existing production line, but also the high quality of their machines.

“Since Nimo-KG installed the three new lifting and tipping machines a year ago, we have had no downtime at all,” said Kenneth Staal.

Lantmännen’s bakery in Copenhagen will very likely enjoy the company of more lifting and tipping machines in the future.

“We are extremely satisfied with the equipment and its tiptop reliability. If we need to expand our equipment pool or replace machines in the future, we’ll call Nimo-KG right away.”

IFFA participation pays off – new orders from Hong Kong and Singapore

Nimo-KG has during the last months delivered several single column lifts to Hong Kong and Singapore. The orders are direct results of the company’s participation at the trade fair IFFA.

– The two companies, one from Hong Kong and one from Singapore, first came in contact with us at IFFA in Frankfurt and then returned with order requests. We have for many years invested in our participation at IFFA and these orders show that it’s a successful strategy, says Eva Johansson, Sales Manager at Nimo-KG.

One single column lift was delivered to Singapore at the end of last year, and Nimo-KG recently received a new request from Hong Kong for five single lifts of the model SKV 300 C3.

– Nimo-KG offers tailor made machines for internal product handling. The fact that potential customers are able to see first-hand how the machines work and will fit into their production at exhibitions such as at the trade fair IFFA is therefore valuable both for us and for them, says Eva Johansson.

Nimo-KG:s lifting and tipping equipment

Nimo-KG designs and manufactures internal product handling machines. The company’s lifting and unloading equipment (KG lift) has made the company a well-known brand in the manufacturing and food industry over the years. Every year more than 200 machines are delivered to customers all over the world.
