The Weber Power Control system has been granted a ‘Red Dot’ award in recognition of its outstanding design and simple operation for high-performance slicing lines.

The competition is staged annually in Germany by the Design Zentrum NRW. Weber Power Control won its prize in the Communication Design category, illustrating how the complexity of the slicers and infeeder lines is overcome through a graphics- based touchscreen system.

Jim Sydenham, joint md of Interfood Technology, said: “Flexibility is key to many slicing operations and the many different functions and options available in the Weber range is certainly one of its major selling points in that this enables the slicer to be configured to meet the needs of very specific slicing criteria. However, it is vitally important that this can be achieved easily, without the technology becoming too difficult for the operators to work with.

“In its new Power Control technology, Weber has come up with an approach that is familiar to many through its use of smartphones and tablets. It employs graphics that are swiped on a touchscreen to bring up the various options. The system’s in-built intelligence reduces the number of parameters, thereby significantly simplifying operation, with all important settings available via a single touch.”
