GEA Packaging Equipment at Interpack 2017 Helps Turn Ideas into Realities

“Packed with inspiration” is the theme for the GEA stand at Interpack, where it will present systems for packaging of food, confectionery and baked goods, beverages, medical and technical items, and pharmaceuticals. The world’s leading trade fair for the processing and packaging industry will take place from May 4 to 10, 2017 in Düsseldorf. The most recent Interpack was visited by more than 170,000 trade visitors from 190 countries.

GEA has designed its processing solutions to match the trends of the times – for a highly regulated industrial sector, for highly sensitive package contents, and for highly critical consumers. These solutions support manufacturers in realizing ever more reliable, flexible, efficient, and imaginative packaging. New developments will include an entry-level thermoformer model and an ultra-hygienic vertical bagger system, as well as a coating and wrapping line designed to revive the lollipop market. One highlight at the fair will be a revolutionary non-destructive quality control system for modified-atmosphere packaging (MAP) – the extraordinary GEA response to the questions as to how we can prevent food waste.

GEA PowerPak with Powerguide and EasyCheck.

Getting started

One of the headliners is a new thermoformer configuration developed as a basic machine with restricted functionality. The entry-level GEA DeltaPak provides access for smaller-scale packaging operations to the quality and reliability of the proven GEA PowerPak platform. It is part of the recently re-defined GEA PowerPak range, which makes specifying a thermoformer for a particular application much easier and more cost-effective by omitting functions that are not required. There will likewise be a PowerPak for medical and technical packaging at the GEA stand.

Moving up to large-scale operations

GEA DualSlicer 1200.

PowerPak presentation will also feature an integrated slicing/packaging line for larger-scale operations. The line includes an OptiScan, a pre-scanning system to minimize give-away and increase the yield of sliced portions, a DualSlicer 1200 with Interleaver and Check 4000 weigher designed to slice raw ham, and a ShingleLoader to load portions automatically into the PowerPak packaging unit. This thermoformer is fitted with a new labeler, end-of-line lane convergers, and a revolutionary new, non-destructive quality control system for MAP packaging. For vertical bagging users, there will be two continuous-operation SmartPackers, a CX250 with a multi-head weigher, and a CX400 that meets the highest hygiene standards.

Sweet? Sour? Sweet-sour!

GEA BunchWrapper with Label Unit.

GEA recently launched its Aquarius BunchWrapper: the world’s first fully automatic line that forms, cools, coats, and wraps lollipops. GEA has now equipped the Aquarius BunchWrapper wrapping machine with labelers for inserting labels inside the wrapper film or directly on the stick. This enables manufacturers to set off their products from their competition by adding information such as barcodes or promotional information such as logos and campaigns. Powder, syrup, or granule coatings provide additional taste, distinctive coloration, and special gloss. Visitors to the GEA stand can take along samples of the lollipops with sweet-sour coating and can draw inspiration for their future products.

In addition to medical and food packaging, as well as slicing and lollipop equipment at the more than 1,000 square-meter stand (hall 7a, stand B09/B31), GEA at Interpack will also display equipment serving the bakery, beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries.

GEA Service – For your continued success

Tailor-made service addressing the customers’ needs help to maintain and even improve the performance of packaging technology in the long run. With several options out of the new service concept “GEA Service – For your continued success” GEA supports customers throughout the entire life cycle of their installed systems and components – from project engineering, installation, and commissioning to production. There will likewise be an information desk on the GEA stand at Interpack, where customer service personnel will be available to provide more info on the recently introduced customer-care concept.

You can find the GEA 1,047 square-meter stand B09/B31 in hall 7a at Interpack.
