GEA Procomac launches new palletiser at Open House event

From 4 – 8 July 2011, GEA Procomac hosted an Open House event at the GEA Procomac Packaging factory in Collecchio, Italy, to launch its Fluens 2000, the new low in-feed, non-robotised, palletiser, single head and single pallet.

PRLog - Sep. 21, 2011 - The company believes that this completely redesigned palletiser is the fastest of its kind in the world.

The new palletiser, which is considered to be much easier to operate than its predecessors, was shown in operation and, while the guests looked on, out-performed even its expected production rate demonstrating that it is capable of continuous operation at a rate of over 8 layers a minute. This is a rate that, until now was only possible using high level machines.  Using newly patented technology, the Fluens 2000 achieves this high productivity with less stress on the key mechanical components thereby keeping maintenance costs down and reducing the chances of unscheduled downtime.

The design also reduces the costs of the conveyor system between the shrink wrapper and the palletiser and has a much smaller footprint than its rivals.

Despite the economic restrictions that is curtailing travel for every company, over 50 customers and potential customers attended the event from more than 30 companies throughout Italy.  In addition to the new palletiser, guests were able to see the GEA Procomac pack manipulator Polaris, patented layer preparation system.  

Also on show was a conveyor ring designed for square bottles equipped with the new  Ventilo 2000 bottle dryer and a lane bottle divider manufactured by GEA Procomac.  The system achieved running speeds of 40,000 bph with 0.5 litre bottles. By comparison with other systems on the market the GEA Procomac system benefits from higher efficiency, reduced footprint at a competitive price.

GEA Procomac is a member of GEA Process Engineering, a business segment of the GEA Group.  It is a world leader in the design, manufacture and installation of complete aseptic filling lines for juices, teas, isotonics, still soft drinks, milk and dairy products and water. The products of GEA Procomac’s packaging division are also widely used in the food and chemical industries.
