Introducing the New Bottle Conveyor From Gebo

Bottle conveyor manufacturer Gebo has unveiled the K110 universal guiding system. Gebo’s new bottle conveyor builds on the company’s acknowledged expertise in the field, offering a robustness which far outstrips that required for the PET business, as well as two innovative features which set a new standard for conveying expertise.

This new bottle guidance mechanism represents a major improvement on the existing technology, offering superior robustness, flexibility and hygiene.

The guide rail’s low contact point allows for maximum bottle stability, with the ability to handle all major bottle formats. Crucially, this profile height of 110mm avoids any potential damage to the labels. The new conveyor also offers greater flexibility than ever before: not only can the K110 system handle all glass bottle formats, it can also be easily and rapidly adjusted to convey cans and PET containers.

The Gebo bottle conveyor is calibrated for smooth, continuous and symmetrical bottle handling. Its simple, flexible geometrical design allows for easy bending on-site, allowing users to tailor the installation to fit the layout constraints of their production facilities. The component materials have also been selected for their superior technical performance, with enhanced use of PEHD 1000 M-Slide plastic for optimal thermal and mechanical stability.

The conveyor has been designed and constructed with impeccable hygiene in mind, with no visible threads on the guide supports and potential fluid retention zones kept to a strict minimum.

This commitment to flawless hygiene is also reflected in the Gebo bottle conveyor’s intelligent new leg design, with minimised retention zones and channels ensuring that lubrication water is rapidly and efficiently drained away to the drip trays.

This new leg setup also offers an unprecedented level of stability, with super-sturdy cross-triangulation and optimized weight distribution allowing for smooth, symmetrical conveying in even the most challenging conditions.

Product manager Vincent Piron is looking forward to introducing clients to the next generation of Gebo conveyors: “This system represents a major step forward in our glass bottle conveying capabilities, a sector that is still at the very heart of our company’s identity. At the same time, the superb flexibility and durability of this unit goes to show just how broad Gebo’s expertise is: we now offer can, glass and plastic solutions across all categories, capable of delivering excellent results in any conditions.”

With this conveyor, brewers will once again enjoy the high standard of quality and solidity they require and for which Gebo was historically renowned, in an industry where the robustness constraints are higher than in the PET business. Easy to set up, hygienic and extremely flexible – the new Gebo bottle conveyor looks set to become an indispensable tool for busy breweries worldwide.
