Bottling, Filling and Conveying
Whatever you’re producing – juices, milk, beer, wine, soda or maybe an entirely new beverage category – the packaging can be as important as the product. Your packaging processes can make the difference in terms of controlling volume, eliminating waste, maximizing throughput and ensuring quality. Even more, better packaging can strengthen your brand reputation, improve your competitive position on the shelf and increase consumer satisfaction – driving higher sales and profitability.
Uncork Innovation and Performance.
To compete effectively today, beverage manufacturers are looking to wow customers with new products in innovative containers. At the same time, they’re looking to maximize profitability by increasing bottling line uptime and throughput. They can’t afford sluggish performance or wasted product during changeovers – let alone the “Monday Morning Shock” of a machine that won’t run after an extensive cleaning performed over the weekend. Kollmorgen removes the barriers to full performance and true innovation.
Mechanical Systems Are Stuck in the Past. Look to the Future.
With servo control of each axis, your machine can deliver far greater uptime and throughput, along with the configuration flexibility to enable innovative package designs, fine-tuned portion control, pushbutton changeovers and more. There’s no backlash and slop from transmission components, and no limitation on your ability to program motion optimally for each independent process – from beverage preparation to filling, capping, cleaning and labeling.
Clean It Faster. Make It Last Longer.
Kollmorgen’s food grade, washdown-ready motors and gearheads make it easy to clean the machine and keep it productive over an extended lifetime with minimal maintenance. With a smooth cylindrical design and sealing systems that allow us to double the industry’s standard warranty period, our stainless steel servo motors and AquaTRUE™ planetary gearheads last longer and reduce your cleaning time by as much as 85 percent.
