Thermometer manufacturer TME received a record number of enquiries at this year’s Anuga FoodTec trade show in Cologne, Germany.
The British-based firm caught visitors’ attention with a 1972 VW Campervan on its stand, and the vehicle was kitted out with products from its thermometer range.
“The campervan turned out to be a great eye-catcher,” explained MD, Tom Sensier. “We found some interesting temperature problems to solve – from the complexities of fine coffee bean roasting to the fry-curve of the humble chip!”
Celebrating 25 years in digital handheld thermometer design, TME came to Anuga FoodTec to meet with food manufacturers and equipment distributors from all over the world. “We were delighted to meet so many potential customers and distributors from our target markets – not just in Europe but further afield, including India, Russia, China and the Middle East,” added Sensier. “We look forward to even more success in the future as we launch, in 2015, some of TME’s most innovative solutions to date.”
The firm’s newest innovation, the MM7100 ThermoBar Scan Thermometer, was on display, said to combine accurate temperature measurement and an integral barcode reader. As well as recording the temperature, time and date of each measurement it notes the unique barcode identity of the product or test point.
