“Packed with inspiration” is the theme for GEA at interpack in Düsseldorf. Highlighted developments include the GEA Aquarius Coating Line, a great way to distinguish lollipops by adding taste, color, texture or shine with coatings of powder, syrup or granulate. It forms, cools, coats and wraps ball and 3D lollipops at up to 600 per minute, and some of the possibilities it presents can be tasted at the Coating Bar on the GEA stand.
There are two continuous motion GEA SmartPackers on display as well: a CX250 with a multi-head weigher; and a CX400 that meets the highest hygiene standards. These machines can handle the latest stand-up packaging formats – including Quatro seal and Easy Doystyle – to ensure they stand out on shelves and counters.
Another standard-setting packaging solution from GEA is its SmartPacker TwinTube C, which achieves up to 500 bags per minute by packing two pillow bags in parallel — all in the same floor space as a regular bagger. GEA SmartPackers handle products smoothly, making it possible to bag fragile or gummy candy at high speeds. And thanks to the intelligent product-in-seal detection system, no product gets between the sealing jaws, so there’s no need to stop for cleaning.
