Our solutions for transport technology

Transport technology connects machines

The term transport technology is used to describe all the materials handling technology between machines in the beverage industry. A particularly high level of flexibility is important in system design for this field, since specific customer requests must be taken into account. Reliable, energy-efficient drive solutions are what's required, along with pioneering digital networking of all components.

Key goals

Reducing CO2

The increasing pace of climate change has made reducing CO2 a key issue. Energy-efficient solutions are required to achieve greater sustainability and reduce costs.

High system availability

With condition monitoring, you get transparency about the status of the drive system and forecasts about critical changes in status, enabling predictive and needs-based maintenance.

Hygiene requirements

A long service life and easy cleaning thanks to special options for wet areas, such as hygienic design with smooth surfaces and no horizontal areas.

Our solutions

Beverage industry – Transport technology numbered

Container transport

Container transport is responsible for transferring containers between beverage filling machines, and is therefore the element of transport technology that connects every part of the production side. The conveyor line consists of various elements, such as the slat-band chain conveyor, pressureless accumulation, mass transport and the buffer track.

Your requirements

  • Precise control of the containers for careful transportation
  • Lower energy requirements
  • Drive solution for challenging ambient conditions such as wet areas
  • Fast installation and startup

Packaging unit transport

Packaging unit transport is responsible for transporting, positioning, distributing and turning packaging units in the filling system. Various elements are involved in the conveyor line: link-chain conveyors, roller conveyors, distribution stations and turning stations before palletization.

Your requirements

  • High control quality for fast, dynamic speed control
  • Low noise emission levels
  • Lower energy requirements
  • Simple cleaning

Pallet transport

During pallet transport, pallets of packaging units are transported from empties receiving to filled goods dispatch. The conveyor line consists of various elements, including the roller conveyor or chain conveyor, the corner transfer unit for changing direction and the pallet loading and offtake station.

Your requirements

  • Control of high breakaway torques in heavy-load transportation
  • Sturdy technology due to tough ambient conditions
  • Lower energy requirements
  • Positioning during lifting and placing of packaging units
