Standard-Knapp Eliminates Lane Jams and Reduces Downtime with Zero-Gap Infeed Technology
Yields 98% Packing Efficiency
Portland, CT-Standard-Knapp, a worldwide leader in the manufacture of innovative packaging machinery, introduces its Zero-Gap infeed technology for balanced, jam-resistant packing lanes. Designed for a variety of applications in the soft drink, beer, wine, food, and household product industries, Zero-Gap is a more precise, efficient and low-maintenance alternative to conventional laning systems. Zero-Gap increases efficiency to 98% or greater and operates at speeds from 100 to 1600 bottles per minute.
Unlike traditional infeed designs, Zero-Gap does not require costly compressed air or damaging mechanical oscillation to guide containers to their lanes. Zero-Gap incorporates precise geometry and sensors to ensure a continuous container supply to the downstream lanes and grouping section.
Low line pressure and gentle handling properties make Zero-Gap ideal for compressible or hot-filled PET, lightweight glass, and aluminum. Compatible with a variety of platforms, including tray packers, shrink wrappers, intermittent motion case packers and rotary packers, Zero-Gap can be programmed to handle round containers of all sizes.
Changeover is easily accomplished by initial setup parameters which allow operators to complete changes with repeatability and without the need to adjust settings during production.
