Process steps of our cosmetic filling machines

Stockpiling and feeding

We always plan the stockpiling and feeding of items with our customers within the framework of an individual concept that is tailored to the type of container as well as to the way in which the items are delivered.

In this area we use, for example, hopper conveyors, dosing elevators, plate conveyors or disc sorters. In our systems, these technologies are increasingly being replaced by robot applications, which we have been using and developing for many years.

Bottles, closures and other packaging components are then fed in as bulk goods or by means of trays (also reusable systems); the robot places the items in transport pucks, transport systems or directly in a downstream machine in an extremely product-friendly manner.

Filling and cleaning

Our cosmetic filling equipment can be used in a variety of ways - for small and large quantities, for liquids with very different viscosities.

From semi-automatic small fillers to fully-automatic high-capacity fillers, our they are convincing in all areas of the cosmetic industry. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes - with an output up to 240 units per minute our filling solutions can process perfume, cream, lipgloss, mascara and many more cosmetics. We use a wide variety of filling systems: Rotary piston pump, linear piston pump and mass flow meters. This way, low to high-viscosity products can be filled as required. At the same time, we guarantee maximum process reliability for both small and large filling volumes.

The filling systems of our cosmetic filling equipment can be cleaned with the required method as needed, whether cold cleaning, hot cleaning, sanitizing or sterilization with CIP/SIP. Manual cleaning is possible without any problems due to a pump change trolley: The filling system can be cleaned due to the easy removal from the line.

We also make it possible that filling and cleaning can take place on the line at the same time. Redundant filling systems make it possible to achieve the highest possible line efficiency.

Filling and cleaning


Gentle pressing and exact screwing with a large number of different closures: This is how we are able to guarantee you the highest quality with our closing machines. We distinguish between two types of closing:

  • Intermittent capping machines are suitable for press-on and screw caps, spray and dispenser pumps as well as for multi-part closures.
  • High-performance capping machines for round, flat and shaped bottles run continuously and offer the possibility to process different closures.

Thanks to the latest servo drives, the intermittent modules can be used flexibly on the basic machine and can also be combined with one another. They offer different screwing modes (torque, stop and angle) and rely on careful container closing.

The servomotors, an exact and reproducible torque can be guaranteed during screwing; with all movements it is ensured that future formats can also be set up and run on the machine without any problems.



Suitable for your product: Depending on the line, we offer either continuous or intermittent item transport--or a combination of both.

We prefer to use walking beams with a hygienic design for the filling and closing machine. On the conveyor belts, gentle movements are definitely ensured for smooth passage.

Our lines also offer the option of transporting items that are not stable and cannot be stowed in the transport puck, should this be necessary for your purposes. Through the use of intelligent transport systems with freely programmable transport carriers, we also increase the flexibility of our processing lines.


Labeling and marking

Labeling and marking can also be integrated on our groninger equipment. The containers are guided precisely to the labeling station via the precise star guide and are labeled exactly by the massaging belt. As a result, a completely finished product is yielded at the end of the process. Strip end and strip tear-off monitoring is part of the process reliability.

Depending on the need and application, the printers that are suitable for the label can be used; thermal transfer printers and laser printers are generally the standard.

To ensure reliable control of labeling and marking, we rely on the use of vision systems to provide an optimal result.

With their compact design, our labelers can also be used in confined spaces, integrated as a stand-alone machine or permanently into the line.

Innovative processes for future challenges

Our research and development are the basis for new perspectives. We want to develop and implement an optimal concept individually based on your needs; to achieve that we work closely with all our customers and suppliers.

By joining project management and service together, we ensure that we are able to achieve excellent results together with you - even at short notice. This also includes the extensive documentation and validation of our lines.

Now, we also offer some digital services such as automation, improved analyses or personalization. Talk to us!

Body and hair care products, creams and makeup, perfume and fragrance, color care and nail polish

Always the right solution, always the right process: With excellent product management and excellent service from planning to long after line commissioning, we ensure that you will receive exactly the groninger line that is right for your purposes and challenges - the desired efficiency for your product variety.

For us, the latest standards in the field of technology are just as much a part of a GMP-compliant design as hygienic design in the sensitive areas of the line. Documentation and validation are an integral part of this.

Especially in the field of cosmetic lines, we develop creative machine concepts for the requirements of the future. Of course, continuous improvement of what already exists is also part of this. Whether shampoo, body lotion, mascara, perfume or makeup - we always create the right solution for all products to be processed.

All processes can be carried out safely, effectively and precisely thanks to servomotor drives for all line movements. Testing stations for weighing, torque checking or camera systems for visual inspection ensure optimum quality assurance. So you can be sure that your customers will always receive impeccable products.
