Component for a pasta sauce filling machine

For a filling machine for tomato sauces, we were able to assist one of our customers in the food industry with our iglidur A 181. A kind of tappet would be needed, which is in direct contact with the sauce and therefore had to withstand various requirements (see above). The component was mechanically manufactured from a round bar stock.
