Packaging Solutions
Among an array of industries serviced, Bonfiglioli meets the requirements of the food and packaging industry. “We offer solutions for grain, handling and milling, baking processing as well as fruit and beverage processing,” says Broglia.

Bonfiglioli offers specific products for hygienic, explosion-proof and enhanced protection, developed to deliver the reliability and durability typically demanded by the food and beverage sector. “Our products are typically found in meat and fish, poultry, diary and packaging industries and can handle anything from delicate food packaging to large grain mills and crushers.”

“For grain handling and milling, we offer the F series – a shaft mounted gearbox and geared motor. To name but a few benefits it offers easy installation, quiet operation, high torque capabilities and energy saving.”

“Another great product for handling, particularly for bucket elevators, is our HDO series of heavy-duty gearboxes and geared motors. It acts as a one-stop complete drive solution, and offers highly transmissible power, extensive customisation, an external cooling-system and quiet operation.”

Bonfiglioli’s A series of helical bevel geared motors with an auxiliary drive is ideal for handling and storage in the packaging industry. “It’s efficient, cost-effective, compact and modular and offers flexible mounting,” said Broglia.
