Our solutions for food and beverages

HELIFLEX Storage System

To increase product line efficiency, it is necessary to intercept system-bound faults. By using the HELIFLEX Storage System, the effectiveness of an entire production line can be increased by 5% to 20%. The system independently identifies process faults and fully automatically stores the products. Once the fault has been rectified the intermediately stored units are synchronised back into ongoing production.

Fast and uniform cooling of warm filled products

In the DMA HELIFLEX Continuous Flow Cooler products are rapidly and uniformly cooled to the desired temperature after filling. In the process they are transported in an upward and downward travelling tower on a special endless chain. The cooled products can then be immediately boxed, palletised and stored or dispatched. The efficient cooling process not only saves energy and time, it also has a positive effect on the taste, quality and shelf life of the products.

  • Energy-efficient cooling
  • Process reliability at high product volume
  • Variable features relating to chain width
  • Stop and start possible at any time
  • Demand-driven manufacture
  • Simple Integration

Flat-top chain conveying systems

Fast and uniform cooling of warm filled products

The products conveyed on the four arriving lines must be transferred optionally to four outgoing lines. Every product supplying line can be linked to every product outgoing line.


                                                                                                                                                 Vertical conveyors

Delivers products to a new height level safely, quickly and in a space-saving manner

DMA vertical conveyors are used to overcome height differences on production lines. Our pusher chains allow the transport of both narrow bottles, jars and cans as well as wide containers such as crates and boxes. Moreover, DMA vertical conveyors can easily cope with product weights of up to 40 kg and height differences of up to 12 metres. Vertical conveyors gently and quietly raise and lower the products in a continuous material flow.

  • Especially hygienic
  • Food grade
  • Gentle on materials
  • Continuous sequencing
  • Low maintenance requirements
  • Flexible integration

                                                                                                                                                Stacked crate storage system

Space-saving storage and optimum feeding of the production line

DMA stacked crate storage systems allow the space-saving storage of up to 60,000 crates, thereby facilitating the optimum use of space. Fully automatic crate transportation, without manual intervention, from the return station through to order picking guarantees the optimum feed of crates to the production lines. Cleaned crates are transported directly to production. In the event of over supply crates are held in storage, while additional crates can be quickly fed into the production line from the stacked storage system in the event of under supply.

  • Especially hygienic
  • Space-saving
  • In-process reliability
  • Energy-efficient storage
  • Low maintenance requirements
  • Easy expandability

Feeder and discharge belts

When there are faults in the packaging area, the products are diverted from the main line through the small roller conveying systems and fed to the HELIFLEX storage system. After the fault is eliminated, the units are rolled out of storage and fed to the main line. They are synchronously fed into gaps in ongoing production while avoiding collisions.


The arriving multi-lane product lines are combined to one line.



Special constructions

We would be pleased to demonstrate our flexibility and comprehensive expertise during the design and construction of individually customised special plants. For instance, the plant shown here rotates blocks of cheese through 180 degrees in order to orient the weld seam upwards, as required for subsequent steps in the production process.
