Beverage and Food are production processes, in which gearboxes are widely used. In-plant intralogistical tasks such as storing, washing, and classifying raw materials, as well as mixing, kneading, shaping, cooking, and bottling/packing units, are common in facilities where food and beverage products are manufactured.
Raw materials used in the beverage industry are stored in high-volume tanks, and additives for product content are dosed using reliable driving systems before being sent to mixing tanks. Packaging containers, such as foil cardboard boxes, metal boxes, or glass bottles, depending on the product quality, are conveyed to filling units.
In the food industry, agricultural products used as raw materials undergo cleaning, separation, classification, and washing processes based on their quality. Several steps are performed before the product packing process, including slicing, mixing, kneading, moistening, shaping, and cooking of raw materials drawn from silos. Hygiene and energy management are critical considerations throughout these stages.
