Gebo Cermex, part of the Sidel Group, showcased its AQFlex product handling technology at drinktec claiming it is responding to sophisticated consumption trends that present challenges to the production and distribution of goods.

AQFlex packaging line offers agility and smooth contactless product conveying and accumulation, in a compact space.

Smarter technology

AQFlex is the new IQ in product handling, encompassing all the advantages given by the existing conveying machines in a much smarter way​," said Ludovic Tanchou, VP, Strategy, Products and Innovation, Gebo Cermex.

"Moreover, for greater product traceability and continuous control of production quality, the technology works on a ‘first-in, first-out’ (FIFO) operating principle​.”

The machine can operate at speeds from 1,000 to 100,000 containers per hour, and can accommodate any product, whatever the application, in all container materials, formats and shapes, full or empty.
The single-lane, contact-free product handling and accumulation system can also process fragile, unstable or premium containers.

Production diversity

Marc Aury, president/MD, Gebo Cermex, said with packaging quality playing a key role in brand recognition and production diversity, manufacturers are looking for improved flexibility and responsiveness from their existing packaging systems.

Easy re-engineering of existing lines is also important if producers want to adapt to big changes in demand​,” he said.

As all conveying and accumulation is carried out as a single-file process, the usual peripheral conveying functions associated with mass accumulation such as deceleration, de-grouping, combining and laning are eliminated​.”
