Carrier system Type PGC for the pre-grouping of products

The carrier system Type PGC is designed to pick one or several products in a carrier and form predefined carrier groups. Thanks to individually controllable carriers with electromagnetic drive, all imaginable group formations are possible. Applications are to be found particularly in robot cells in the packaging area, where it is all about high tact cycles or where there are frequent formula changes and with that various packaging patterns. Packing the carriers in intervals is dependent on the cycle performance over one or multi-lane conveyor systems.

Areas of application

  • In the food, non-food and pharma branches
  • Primary and secondary packaging
  • Pre-grouping for picking / placement of complete layer patterns
  • Grouping multiple row and multi-lane layer patterns
  • Grouping in vertical and horizontal alignment
  • Requires high flexibility due to a large number of formats / groupings


  • Stable construction with perfectly adapted guide rails
  • Execution according to branch-specific requirements for food, non-food, pharmaceuticals and medicine
  • Individually customized carrier trays that suit the product
  • Symmetrical structure with 90°-curves


  • Quick-change systems for format change or cleaning
  • Design according to branch-specific requirements for primary packaging area
  • Depending on your application, adapted track layout with direction reversal in the case of curves with minimal angles of 22,5°
