Food Products

Most food products that we use no longer come directly from the producer. Rather, they pass through a number of industrial processing and packaging steps before they show up on the supermarket shelf or land in our grocery carts. Automation technology is a fundamental building block for all food product and packaging machines. Frequently changing packages in smaller and smaller batches, or larger production quantities , are some of the common challenges for machine builders. An additional requirement is the complete monitoring and record-keeping of all processes. Every manufacturer and process of food products wants to have safe, monitored production of their goods. Consumer protection must be strictly adhered to for all products, in terms of current hygiene regulations.

LinMot drives provide machine builders with optimal components for putting the manufacturing and packaging processes in motion in the food products industry.
Various models of linear motors with highly hygienic stainless steel designs have been developed especially for this purpose.
They can perform standardized, highly dynamic, linear or linear-rotary motions in the housing of a single motor type.
In combination with freely programmable motion parameters via the drive, the motors provide a high level of flexibility for applications such as:

  • Beverage filling
  • Placing products in packages
  • Weight products
  • Metering products
  • Sorting using pushers or pull noses
  • Reject products
  • Cutting food products
  • Packaging
  • Sealing
  • Compressing
  • etc.


Drinking has long been more than a necessity, becoming an expression of one’s lifestyle.
Fruit juices, plain or carbonated water, vitamin and mineral drinks, mixed drinks, energy drinks, or eco-drinks-–the range of offerings is unlimited.
For the beverage industry, this means constantly being able to adjust one’s own production strategy. One way to make beverage production more flexible and economical is increasingly thorough automation.

Hygienically designed LinMot linear motors provide the ideal solution throughout the entire production process:

  • Single and multiple closures
  • Unloading
  • Valve drives
  • Decorating
  • Labeling
  • Packing systems
  • Transport
  • etc.

Customers around the world use innovative LinMot drive technology, ensuring greater flexibility with shorter product cycles.
