Automation of packaging & logistics

Flexible, accurate and durable integrated drive solutions with high torque density reduce downtime, minimize wear and increase productivity.

BEGE: automation partner for the logistics sector

BEGE supports machine builders, manufacturers and other players in this sector with optimal automation solutions. Our extensive knowledge of the industry enables us to always deliver a suitable drive or controller.

Co-engineering for drives in the (intra)logistics and packaging industry

We are one of the few suppliers on the market that works closely with our customers’ professionals. Through co-engineering, we work together to create smart and efficient drive and control solutions for optimal (intra)logistics processes.

It’s not about what we make, but about what we make possible.

Automation for the packaging and logistics industry

Custom drives for the packaging & logistics industry

We develop and manufacture custom drives and automation solutions. Together with our customers in the industry, we have already developed many tailored solutions. A number of applications are shown below. Move over an area to read more details.

Servo solution for optimal storage systems

Intralogistics & distribution

Servo solution for optimal storage systems

Wish: Optimize productivity, space utilization, inventory management and real-time load tracking.
Solution: A servo system with smart controls ensures exceptionally high throughput in fully automated storage systems.

Carefully packing confectionery products

Food & preserves

Pack confectionery products

Wish: Fill boxes or trays with delicate confectionery products without damage.
Solution: An accurate pick-and-place servo system fills boxes with high stability. This reduces the risk of damage from vibration or falling and allows careful packing.

Automatic bottle labeling

Non-food packaging

Automatic bottle labeling

Wish: Automatically align pre-printed adhesive labels on plastic bottles.
Solution: An electrically driven massage belt presses the label around the bottle. During labeling the bottles move on a VFD conveyor with adjustable side guides.

Efficient luggage handling systems

Intralogistics & distribution

Efficient luggage handling systems

Wish: Handle baggage at airports efficiently, quickly and with high capacity.
Solution: Robust baggage handling systems driven by integrated drum motors that can run 24/7. Maintenance free.

VFD stretch hooder

Non-food packaging

Operating stretch hooder

Wish: Stretch film wrapper with controlled film feed for sustainability.
Solution: The VFD worm gear motor controls film feed from the winder. The feed rate is synchronized to the packing speed and can easily be adjusted to suit the product dimensions.

Efficient hermetic packaging

Food & preserves

Efficient hermetic packaging

Wish: Efficiently package delicate products (wraps, cheese, pancakes) in plastic or film.
Solution: An efficient drive for hygienic filling and closing machines. The MIG encoder control system of the film line ensures accurate bag length to avoid waste.

Driving and steering AGVs

Intralogistics & distribution

Driving and steering AGVs

Wish: Load, unload, store and retrieve products, pallets or boxes automatically.
Solution: Drive and control automatic guided vehicle (AGV) drive and steering unit with outstanding precision and constant speed.

Pick-and-place robot arm

Non-food packaging

Pick-and-place robot arm

Wish: Quickly pack products in boxes with a robot case packer.
Solution: Robot box filler with pick-and-place arm. Integrated direct drive servo motors for high torque transfer. A lightweight, efficient and flexible dynamic drive.

Precise palletizer positioning

Intralogistics & distribution

Palletizer positioning

Wish: Automatic bag stacking in different patterns and on different pallets.
Solution: MIG encoder position detection for precise gripper positioning. Together with VFD motors, this enables stacking in different patterns and on different pallets.

Molding bottles with extruder drives

Food & preserves

Molding bottles

Wish: Drive an extruder for extrusion blow molding.
Solution: Special extruder drives heat the thermoplastic. Servo technology precisely positions and clamps the nozzle so the air or gas can be optimally blown into the tube segment to form the parison to the die shape.

Sustainable automatic custom packaging

Non-food packaging

Sustainable variable packaging

Wish: Drive a sustainable packaging machine to make custom boxes for individual orders.
Solution: The machine quickly scans the dimensions of each order with optical sensors. The highly dynamic servo drive processes the input and folds a cardboard box matching the product dimensions.

Parcel sorting machine motion control

Intralogistics & distribution

Parcel sorting machine motion control

Wish: Unload parcels from trucks in a distribution center automatically in the right place.
Solution: Complex dynamic drive systems intercommunicating through multi-axis motion controllers with route calculation, speed control and position compensation.

Reduce waste with multi-head weighers

Food & preserves

Multi-head weighers

Wish: Prevent waste in the packaging process.
Solution: Multi-head weigher with individual servo-driven weighing heads. Multi-axis motion controller for automatic feedback to weighing heads, enabling product adaptation to avoid waste.

Hygienic ampoule filling

Non-food packaging

Hygienic ampoule filling

Wish: Fill ampules for injectable medicines without risk of bacterial contamination.
Solution: An aseptically driven conveyor guides the ampules smoothly to the feed auger, where they are lined up for hygienic opening, filling and closing. The fill volume can easily be set via the HMI control panel.

Filling stickpacks with servo drive

Food & preserves

Filling stickpacks

Wish: Fill stick packs with on-the-go consumer goods (coffee, drink flavors, sugar, herbs and sauces).
Solution: Servo-driven process sequence. The bags are accurately filled with the right amount and the film is carefully sealed on three sides, then the individual stick packs are cut and separated.
