In today’s competitive market, chocolate manufacturers need packaging that helps them better promote their brands and enhance shelf differentiation. Therefore, it’s important to have the right packaging technology to produce the desired look, while maintaining product quality and also meeting manufacturing efficiency goals. With decades of experience in processing, handling and packaging chocolate products, we know how to meet those key requirements.
Differentiating your product
Bosch’s extensive portfolio of processing and packaging solutions for the chocolate industry offers manufacturers a choice of the optimal technology for their product. For flow wrapping large volumes at high speeds, Bosch’s range of feeders for flow wrappers ensure gentle handling of fragile and delicate chocolate treats like multi-layer bars, toffee or chocolate with decorations. Die- and end-fold packaging technologies are designed to assure product safety and create a premium look. For smaller portions or multipacks, vertical packaging equipment is ideal. It allows for high speed operations with rapid changeover of product as well as various pack styles and sealing methods. Robotic technology for primary and secondary packaging can help chocolate companies increase output and minimize product waste, while advanced gripping technology guarantees gentle product handling.
Adapting to change
While high output is critical to meet growing demand, flexibility is important for shelf differentiation and brand appeal. Highly flexible machine design not only accommodates current pack style needs, but also allows for adaptation to future requirements. Multiple product types, sizes and pack styles can be handled on a single packaging machine or line.
To help increase operating profit margins, our equipment is designed for tool-less, fast and easy changeovers to maximize production efficiency. The open machine design with good accessibility and smooth surfaces further contributes to easy maintenance and simplified cleaning.
