Engineered to eliminate line jams during the packaging process, Standard-Knapp’s new Zero-Gap II Infeed uses electronic sensors to monitor and control product movement, maintaining a constant low line pressure and maximizing machine uptime. The company recommends the Zero-Gap II for applications in the soft drink, beer, wine, food and household product industries. The Zero-Gap II Infeed operates at speeds of up to 2000 bottles per minute with round containers of all sizes. Changeover is accomplished by initial setup parameters which allow operators to complete changes with repeatability and without the need to adjust settings during production. The Zero-Gap II Infeed is compatible with a variety of platforms, including tray packers, shrink bundlers, intermittent motion case packers and rotary packers. Constructed with robust stainless steel and a narrow profile, the Zero-Gap II Infeed features an easy-access configuration with no moving parts.
