Standard-Knapp Introduces Beaded Lane Guide for Jam-Free Packing Lines



Near-zero friction design protects containers, increases line efficiencies

Portland, CT-Standard-Knapp, a worldwide leader in the manufacture of innovative packaging machinery, introduces its unique Beaded Lane Guide for reduced friction and container damage in the packing line. Ideal for challenging applications in the beverage and personal care industries, Standard-Knapp's Beaded Lane Guide handles non-round, locking, and unstable-shaped containers with reduced downtime and damage due to line jams.

The Beaded Lane Guide's exclusive interleaved design provides a virtually continuous surface for significantly reduced side friction against bottles and containers, protecting pressure-sensitive labels and graphics from damage. Beaded Lane Guides on the inner packing line permit simultaneous motion on both sides of the line without friction, so multiple lanes can run side-by-side without bottleneck. The high-performance plastic rollers of the Beaded Lane Guide are also engineered with a specific ratio of outside and inside diameter for minimal roll resistance.

Offered in a range of heights to address any size or shape product application, the Beaded Lane Guide is ideal for hot-filled beverages in compressible PET containers, as well as glass, HDPE and aluminum containers. The Beaded Lane Guide's stainless steel assembly components allow for easy cleaning and maintenance-free operation and its low-deflection mounting plates make installation simple.

Standard-Knapp's Beaded Lane Guide is available with all the company's packaging machines, and is also available as a separate component.
