Fricke presents flexible filling systems for liquid products

Fricke presents filling systems for liquid products at Fachpack 

Visitors at this year’s Fachpack in Nuremberg can look forward to a wide range of topics about sustainable packaging concepts, the latest packaging trends and the packaging of the future. The Minden-based mechanical engineering company Fricke will also be exhibiting at the event from September 27 to 29, 2022. As a longtime partner of the chemical industry, the company will be presenting its filling systems for liquid products.

Fricke Abfülltechnik GmbH & Co. KG guarantees the fast and reliable filling of low- to high-viscosity liquids – be they coatings, varnishes, paints or adhesives. The flexible filling systems allow for fast switching between different types and sizes of containers. Whether fully or semi-automated, the systems are constructed based on customer requirements and ensure a process-optimized workflow. Fricke’s filling systems are easy to handle, intuitive to operate and ergonomic in construction.


Ergonomic filling station helps against back pain

Not only is back pain uncomfortable. It also results in absences from work, creating extra costs for employers. Fricke offers an ergonomic solution with its FFS 21 filling station – designed for the filling of low-viscosity liquids, such as cleaning agents, solvents, mineral oils and glazes. The equipment was constructed in a way that allows the filling to take place directly on the pallet, and the machine operator can control it with a single hand, making the process much more ergonomic. Once the program number has been entered, the equipment automatically adjusts itself for the corresponding container size, helping reliably prevent damage to the machine and the containers.

Fricke’s systems are extraordinarily high performing and cover a broad range of applications. This applies both to new systems and when systems need to be integrated into existing production areas. Fricke’s systems are perfectly aligned with each other as custom solutions designed precisely for the particular application. This allows for the best possible use of resources and the utmost reliability. Systems for use in potentially explosive atmospheres are, of course, compliant with ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU.


German-made engineering expertise

As a longstanding family-run company, Fricke is in its fifth generation of development and manufacturing German-made filling and dosing systems for many different industries, along with the corresponding software solutions. Thanks to its clear brand positioning and strong sales concepts, the company today serves clients from around the world. This consistent branding resulted in Fricke being recognized twice in this year’s German Brand Awards – winning in the category “Excellence Brands – Industry, Machines & Engineering” and receiving a special mention in the category “Excellence Brands – Product Brand of the Year.”

“Come and see our strong performance for yourself as we present our ergonomic FFS 21 filling station at this year’s Fachpack in Nuremberg,” shares Dirk Novak, Sales Engineer at Fricke. “We look forward to connecting with you at our trade fair stand 3C-305.”


Fricke Abfülltechnik GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 1870 in Rehme (North Rhine-Westphalia) and began by producing decimal scales that mainly helped dealers to weigh agricultural products correctly. The product portfolio was gradually expanded, Fricke then developing bagging scales for coal and briquettes, and soon afterwards the first dosing and filling systems, which are still used in numerous industries.

Today, the company offers fully and semi-automatic dosing and filling systems, together with the associated control software, for a variety of industries, including perfumes and aromas, coatings and paints, care und cleaning products, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics, foods, chemicals, adhesives, and construction chemicals and auxiliaries. Family-owned since it was founded, Fricke is currently led by a fifth-generation Managing Director and employs a staff of about 110 in Minden – 34 of whom work in support and software development.
