GEA Group is one of the largest system suppliers for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. The Food Solutions division manufactures components for packaging machines at its Wallau site. There, a well thought-out automation concept has significantly increased productivity. Two Grob G751 5-axis machining centers produce the same amount of parts as five machines previously did – and almost exclusively in batch size 1. And this is thanks to the automated loading of the Liebherr PHS 1500 Allround pallet handling system.
