The innovations we will display at Interpack 2014 are created with maximum flexibility in mind and aim to support manufacturers of all sizes, from small start-ups to large, globally established firms.
Flexible solution for retail-ready packaging
Making its debut in Europe, we will present its new CCM 3100 case packer, which handles up to 180 products per minute. Designed for shorter production runs and increased flexibility in secondary packaging, the CCM 3100 enables quick and tool-less changeovers between vertical (stand-up) and horizontal (lay-flat) bag orientation. Additionally, the case packer integrates easily with vertical form, fill and seal (VFFS) and horizontal form, fill and seal (HFFS) machines and handles a wide range in both bag and case sizes and styles, including Regular Slotted containers (RSC), Half Slotted Containers (HSC), and all common retail-ready packaging styles.
Entry-level VFFS technology for a wide range of industries
Bosch’s entry-level SVI 2600 VFFS machine is now also available for European manufacturers. The machine caters the needs of small to mid-sized manufacturers seeking to automate their packaging processes, while providing large manufacturers with a cost-effective option for small-volume processing or for test marketing new products. For reliable, high-efficiency packaging, the SVI 2600 incorporates the same proven technology employed on higher-end baggers, such as servo-driven cross-sealing units, vacuum belts, and Bosch/Beckhoff controls. The intermittent motion bagger can be easily combined with existing equipment and produces pillow, side-gusseted and block-bottom bags at rates up to 120 bags per minute.
Quick product changeovers for coffee makers
Tailor-made for coffee manufacturers looking for high flexibility, Bosch’s PME 4161 BN is a VFFS package maker with a top closing unit designed easy integration and superior product protection. The PME’s modular design enables quick changeover of top closures and package styles, while achieving an output of up to 55 bags per minute with optional corner sealing. A highlight of the exhibit is the new FVS auger filler with hygienic execution, allowing for quick product changeovers, for instance from decaffeinated to caffeinated coffee. For increased product protection, the PME offers inert gas flushing and an integrated valve applicator for inside valves.
Multi-format chocolate wrapping on the same machine
The Starpac 600L wrapper now provides all three options for die-fold, brush-fold and double twist wrapping on the same machine, with changeovers accomplished in as little as 45 minutes. This enables a new level of packaging flexibility for premium chocolate wrapping. Bosch can also offer its Starpac 600HL wrapper with the unique option of switching hermetic sealing on and off for die-fold operations.
