Can and jar handling

Canned food production line? Reduce your Total Cost of Ownership with a high output solution

With a sweep

Your business is moving.


If you use cans or jars, handling based on linear motion with magnetic or sweep solutions may well be the best option. A linear system typically consists of a loader/unloader, conveyor belts and a shuttle for the transport of stacks into the steriliser. You can expand your canned food production line with a basking turning unit to efficiently dispose of products left behind. Or a de-water unit (tilt-angle up to 80 degrees) to remove excessive water left behind on the sterilised products.

Up speed

With linear handling you generally achieve higher speeds


than with robot handling. The system delivers a very high output – up to 1,200 units per minute.

How it works?

We pick up your cans or jars directly from the filler. Then position them to form a nested layer. Each layer is separated from the product supply and swept to the basket. A lift unit lifts the layers into the basket. The standard capacity for baskets is up to 9 layers per minute.
