Our solu­tions for bird feed & fat ball production

Since GK Indus­tries GmbH started its business activ­ities, the wild bird feed industry has been one of the most important sectors for us. With the imple­ment­ation of ultra­sonic tech­nology in net pack­aging machines in 1994, Gekupack® suc­ceeded in pen­et­rating more and more into the bird feed sector. Over the years, the existing solu­tions were con­tinu­ously optimised and the service port­folio sig­ni­fic­antly expanded, which ulti­mately led to us becoming the market leader in this segment with our Gekupack® brand. Our product range now includes a variety of solu­tions for bird food man­u­fac­turers: from dosing and mixing raw materials and doughs, to pressing tit dump­lings / fat balls in dif­ferent sizes and cre­ating dry food and grain mix­tures, to pack­aging machines for species-pure net pack­aging, various bag, bucket or card­board pack­aging. We have always strived to advance the auto­mation pos­sib­il­ities for the pro­duction and pack­aging of bird feed and to implement new tech­no­lo­gical devel­op­ments in our machines and systems, so that we can guar­antee our cus­tomers effi­cient and com­pet­itive pro­duction according to the latest standards.

While Gekupack® ini­tially developed mainly indi­vidual machines and compact systems, we are now in a pos­ition to present our cus­tomers with integ­rated solu­tions for their pro­duc­tions and thus meet the many requests for pro­duction lines to be designed and imple­mented from a single source. We now plan, man­u­facture and install complex, highly auto­mated systems — e.g. for the pro­duction and pack­aging of fat balls or feeding sticks.

Solu­tions for every process step

Dosing

Precise dosing of raw materials

We offer solu­tions for dosing chunky, granular or powdery products, such as nuts and grains, flakes and other seeds.

Mixing

Automate mixing plants

We install reliable weighing units to cent­rally control and automate the product supply of your mixers with dry raw materials and liquefied fat.

Pressing

Powerful fat ball presses 

Our presses make it pos­sible to produce balls of dif­ferent sizes, such as 90 g, 250 g or giant dump­lings with 500 g at high speeds.

Cooling

Cus­tomised cooling sections

For cooling fat balls and other products such as feeder poles, we design custom-fit cooling tunnels for your premises.

Pack­aging

Ver­satile pack­aging options

Whether resource-saving net pack­aging without a metal clip, tubular or indi­vidual bags: we will find the right solu­tions for your product packaging.

Counting

Counting & Portioning

We stock a variety of machines for counting products and automate your pro­duction by auto­mat­ically por­tioning your products — also in tray packs — with our placement machine.

Repack­aging

 

Repack­aging & Labelling

Increase the effi­ciency of your pack­aging pro­cesses and reduce costs in the long term with cus­tomised solu­tions for pack­aging in pails or boxes.

Pal­let­ising

Robot-based pal­let­ising

Com­plete your pro­duction lines with robot-based pal­let­ising systems and take the next step towards unmanned production.

New Buildings, Exten­sions & Upgrades

New Buildings, Exten­sions & Upgrades

No matter whether you want to build a new pro­duction from scratch, expand your existing pro­duction with addi­tional lines and indi­vidual machines or upgrade with indi­vidual com­ponents and con­ver­sions: With us, you have the right partner at your side.

We will be happy to support you in your planning pro­jects and provide you with advice and assistance in organ­isation and con­ception — regardless of whether you only want to ret­rofit indi­vidual com­ponents or equip empty halls with pro­duction and pack­aging machines.

Cus­tomised special solutions

Cus­tomised special solutions

Pro­duction facil­ities grow over time and often the available space is scarce. When designing new facil­ities, expan­sions or con­ver­sions, we therefore place a high value on responding to and real­ising the wishes and needs of our customers.

Our latest products & further developments

Laying Machine GKV 4012 

In order to increase the degree of auto­mation of pack­aging plants in the field of wild bird feed pro­duction, we have developed the GKV 4012, a fully auto­matic depos­iting machine for por­tioning and placing 4, 6 or 8 fat balls as standard. The fat balls can be dropped and packed in trays provided by an auto­matic tray dis­penser or sealed without trays by a form-fill-seal machine.
