CEPI, provider of bulk handling systems, will showcase their latest turn-key and automation systems at interpack 2023
CEPI designs, manufactures and commissions bulk-handling systems for the storage, transport and dosing of raw materials, as well as fully integrated automation and technologies to complete all production processes. A family-run company with an international outlook, CEPI is based in Italy and operates globally, with offices in Malaysia to coordinate operations in the Asian market and a network of local partners spanning the five continents. Since 1985, we have worked with the most important companies from all sectors of food manufacturing.
CEPI’s vision has centered research, customisation and flexibility since our beginnings. Our mission goes beyond assembling food machinery: we build turn-key installations that manage the production line from storage to dosing, all the while developing specialised solutions to match diverse and ever-changing needs across the planet. CEPI brings to the table a global knowledge of materials, environments, and markets as well as the continued research that goes into developing around 300 unique systems every year.
Powders, granular products, liquids, fats. Macro, micro, medium volumes. Fermentation, cooling, fluidisation, milling, blending, rework. Our motto is: if your process needs it, we can do it. If we can’t do it yet, we will develop it, just for you. Our technologies evolve to match each individual demand from the manufacturer side, leading to unparalleled technological range.
CEPI’s offer includes multiple indoor and outdoor storing options, minisilos and dumping stations for medium production volumes and broad spectrum stations for the storing and dosing of micro ingredients. Dosing can be continuous or batch, positive, by loss of weight, by volume or by weight, in modular hoppers for powders and tanks for liquids. The 3 in 1 station weighs the ingredient, separates air from product during pneumatic transport and comes with vertical blender for the production of premix. Other applications include flour cooling, fermentation, sugar mills, invert sugar technology, salt solution systems, fat and liquid tanks, fat cold metering, bread and biscuit rework systems including liquid rework of sandwich biscuits, and CIP washing system for a complete hygienisation of tanks and pipes.
CEPI provides a turn-key system that includes fully integrated automation, with production management through touch panels and software for full traceability and warehouse management. Hardware and software design is done completely in-house. Each system is designed through a comprehensive study of the user’s processes that includes all operations from warehouse to marketing, and customised to match analysis of raw materials, site evaluation, environment and consumptions.
We believe in build lasting relationships for lasting projects, through an ongoing conversation which concerns all its aspects: from process and product analysis with hygiene and safety management and food technology support, to engineering and control, manufacture, installation and service. All these stages are managed internally and with continuity through all operations and all-encompassing support, we can give each project the care it deserves.
Having experienced continued growth through our history and after the exceptional results of the past few years, we have built a low-impact new facility in 2021 that tripled our productive area to a total of 15.000 m2.
We are bringing a wide selection of technologies to interpack, and we are eager to discuss all the new developments in CEPI since the last edition: our new home, the many optimisations in our process, and our long-term, organic approach to bulk-handling, which is discussed in the Ask the Expert feature of this issue.
