The heart of all fillings systems is the filling machine itself. To make a system requires a lot more. GEA offers complete filling lines which means that we also take care of the complicated task of line integration and control. In order to provide an efficient production line, it is important to consider all parts of the system together. Our experience and our “intelligent automation” enable us to guarantee the total line performance.

For our liquid filling systems into PET bottles we offer accumulation tables which provide FIFO operation whilst preventing pressure on the container. Our multi-lane fast dividers for non-round containers, elevator/lowerator and systems for case & carton handling through to shrink wrapping complete a fully integrated solution.

Our retail powder filling systems share much of this technology and also include de-palletizing, UV cleaning, de-ionizing tunnels, scoop dispensing, check-weighing and all down-line container handling right through to palletizing.

These individual systems are knitted together with our own conveyors and line control automation  to ensure a seamless solution for our customers.

Each line is automated to meet the specific requirements of the application through the use of a range of electronic synchronization devices and control systems.

Specialists in automation systems for high speed container and package conveying lines, GEA believes in the continuous development of line automation: an information network that transforms a group of machines into a high efficiency plant.
