Our expertise in food packaging technologies

Robotic automation

The automation of packaging and processing is a fast-growing trend. Especially during the Covid-19 pandemic, many manufacturers began replacing manual work with fully automated solutions. In the food industry, pick and place robots are now helping to reach production targets at high levels of efficiency and quality.

Horizontal handling

Learn more about the huge gain of linear motors (XTS) for high-performance packaging machines. Due to the increased high degree of flexibility demanded by our confectionery customers, we recognized the potential of XTS technology from Beckhoff early on.

Sustainable packaging technology

What if food packaging could help preserve our planet? Let us challenge our view on conventional packaging – for a more sustainable world.

Paper packaging for bars

Confectionery and plastic flexibles go together like a horse and carriage – or at least they used to. Times are changing, and so are the materials that bars are wrapped in. Today, consumer goods companies are looking for more sustainable materials. Together with Mars Wrigley, we are investigating the flow wrapping potential of paper.

Topload cartoning with integrated delta robot

The robotic solution's camera-based vision control system detects products on the infeed belt. The delta robots pick single or multiple products arriving in random order and reliably place them in cartons, trays or other containers according to specifications.

Liquid food filling

Meet our new filling machine for liquid food and dairy, the LFS. Its modular design offers maximum flexibility and adaptability to changing market demands, while its hygienic machine design complies with the most stringent product safety standards (3-A).

Chocolate paper packaging

Nestlé R&D in York has successfully shown how to switch their UK SMARTIES® tablet from conventional packaging to paper packaging: by approaching us and installing our new upgrade kit “paper-ON-form” on their existing flow wrappers.

Coffee packaging solutions

The focus of our innovative packaging solutions is to preserve the unique aroma of coffee and its premium quality. We have developed valve technologies that allow a residual oxygen content of less than 1%, so none of coffee’s thousands aroma components are lost.

Material testing services

Sustainability has many faces – environmentally friendly packaging is one of them. We support you from the initial idea to the finished product to find the best packaging solution using sustainable materials.
