Zero-Gap infeed technology from Standard-Knapp helps achieve balanced, jam-resistant packing lanes. Designed for applications in the soft drink, beer, wine and food industries, Zero-Gap is an alternative to conventional laning systems. The company says it increases efficiency to 98% or greater and operates at speeds from 100 to 1,600 bottles per minute. The technology does not require compressed air or mechanical oscillation to guide containers to their lanes. Instead it 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 suitable for compressible or hot-filled PET, lightweight glass and aluminum.
