GEA has long specialized in the field of filling and packaging applications, offering design, manufacture, installation, and start-up services throughout the world.
Recent innovations include the GEA SmartPacker CX400 D-Zip and GEA LeakCheck and OxyCheck.
The GEA SmartPacker D-Zip is a continuous motion vertical packaging machine that creates re-closeable stand-up pouches for retail and food service. It combines fast, high- quality operation with maximum flexibility and uptime. In addition to producing premium quality D-ZIP bags, this easy-to-use machine can produce more than 10 different bag styles for a wide variety of applications.
GEA LeakCheck and OxyCheck are inline quality-control systems that can be integrated into our thermoformers to verify the oxygen (O2) content of all MAP packages and identify leakages after the form-fill-seal process.
We also offer filling solutions for sensitive and non-sensitive beverages. Our GEA Visitron Filler ALL-IN-ONE is an ideal choice for small- and medium-sized beverage manufacturers wishing to carry out all necessary functions, on just one machine. Customers packaging sensitive beverages can rely on the variety of top-class sterilization technologies that are offered. As an example, the GEA ABF 2.0 combines an aseptic blow molding module with aseptic filler and capper modules and features dry hydrogen peroxide-based sterilization technology for preforms and caps.
Powder packaging is another GEA specialty. Our range of multi-wall bag/sack fillers is designed to pack powdered products at rates from less than 1 ton/h up to more than 12 ton/h with an accuracy better than 10 g (0.35 oz).
