Flexible and Modular Machine Construction for Maximum Diversity of Variants

The increasing importance of packaging in the transport and storage of goods has made the packaging industry the most important actor between the manufacturer and the end consumer. Enormous demand for ever-evolving product and process innovations has made the market increasingly customer focused.

This market defines variant diversity (the range of possible variants) as a key factor in the requirements for packaging machines and systems. mk helps achieve this diversity with its one-of-a-kind range of components and modules – always flexibly and efficiently, even with small batch sizes.

For applications in the packaging industry, this means:

  • Fully automated packing of bulk product, piece goods, trays, pallets, etc.
  • Automated and precise handling of product at high cycle rates (buffering, storing, labelling, weighing, discharging, tracking, testing, etc.)
  • Optimal machine utilisation and maximum reliability in processes (24/7/365)
  • Machines and systems with high adaptability & compatibility with IT systems
  • ESD safety

Solutions from mk

Whether it’s primary, secondary or tertiary packaging, our extensive portfolio of modular components in the areas of profile, conveyor and handling technology lets you achieve virtually any packaging task.
