Machinery highlights

GEA OptiSlicer 6000 – optimizingprecision

The new GEA OptiSlicer 6000 brings together all the latest developments in slicing technology into one machine. This high-speed slicing machine is intended primarily for products with regular shapes, such as calibrated sausage, salami, cooked ham and cheese. The new slicer’s advantages include high-qualityprecision slicing and portioning, increased productivity, reduced downtime, easier maintenance and minimaltotal cost of operation.

GEA OptiScanner 1200 – innovative scanning that boosts yields

This pre-scanning system for productswith log lengths of up to 1,200 mm increases yields, while keepingthe giveaway percentage exceptionally low during slicing. Using parameters,such as density distribution and the detection of any irregular outer contours as well as holes and undercuts inside the products, the system’s software calculates slice thickness and the number of slices per portion priorto processing in order to ensure that the portions fall within the target weight.

GEA PowerPak SKIN.50 – excellent package quality

With the new GEA PowerPak SKIN.50, GEA isexpanding its portfolio of skin applications to include an optioncapable of packaging products with a height of up to 100 mm or a product protrusion of up to 50 mm. Thanks to an index length of up to 600 mm, the new PowerPak SKIN.50 offers increased capacity based on the die set configuration. The result is very high package quality with minimal risk of wrinkles forming, which makes the GEA solution very attractive to food producers. 

Fully automatic GEA Slicing & Packaging Line Solution – peak performance from a single source 

GEAis showcasing an automatic line concept that combines a high-speed slicer with an automatic pick & place robot loading system and the GEA PowerPak PLUS thermoformer. GEA’s automation expertise is further in evidence on equipmentsuch as an integrated leakage detection unit and the new robot loader developed for sliced products. When combined with the optionally available line control, which grew out ofGEA’s long-standing experience with automatic line solutions,and the highly innovative new GEA SmartControlhuman machine interface (HMI) for monitoring and controlling all line components,the GEAsystem offers customers the highest possible functionality and production liability.

SmartPackerCX400 D-ZIP –smart in every sense

This continuous motion vertical packaging machine creates resealable stand-up pouches for retail and food service. Byeliminating the zipper material in the cross-seal, this revolutionary innovation reducesthe amount of plastic required for the zipper byapproximately 15 percent. The system features a new corner seal unit that simplifies setup and improves overall quality. 

SmartPackerTwinTube –packaging simplified

Thanks to a combined production output of upto 500 bags per minute and a new reinforced modular design, the GEA SmartPackerTwinTube high-speed packing system delivers major productivity benefits as well asgreater flexibility and operational efficiency. This plant boasts a small footprint and is purpose-designed for high-speed packing.

GEA solution lines for lollipop production

GEA production lines not only have a positive impact on production uptime, performance and safety but also further improve customer productivity.GEA will offer insights into its ball and flat lollipop line solutions as well as 3D solutions with additional coating options. Further innovations, such as label onstick and film that will benefit the product, production and businessare also part of the lineup.
