For the first time in the Middle East and North African Region, Bosch will display its Pack Feeder 4 in combination with the Pack 401 horizontal flow wrapper for efficient and flexible packaging of bakery and confectionery products. The sophisticated full product inspection of the Pack Feeder 4 detects misaligned products in order to be rejected. As a result, machine stops are minimized and productivity is increased. Depending on the product being packaged, the feeding system can be equipped with side belts for optimal product positioning and stability, enhancing reliable and efficient packaging. The low-pressure design allows for gentle handling of products like biscuits, chocolate, cakes and bar-type products. With its reliability and robustness, the Pack Feeder 4 can be operated 24/7. Thanks to the modularity and standardized interfaces, the feeding system can be easily integrated with Bosch’s flow wrapper portfolio. At Gulfood Manufacturing, it will be showcased with the Pack 401 horizontal flow wrapper, now available with a narrower cutting head enabling higher packaging speeds for heat seal applications.
Developed for full automation, this machine is available with options such as automatic film splicing and tracking, as well as product inspection and rejection technology. Changeovers can be performed quickly and easily and the machine can be integrated with a wide range of feeding solutions, such as the Pack Feeder 4.
At Gulfood Manufacturing, Bosch will also present further solutions of its comprehensive portfolio for food, non-food and viscous products. “Whether manufacturers need a stand-alone machine or an entire packaging system, Bosch’s complete range of equipment and extensive technical knowledge can help meet the increasing demands of the food and non-food markets in Africa and the Middle East,” says Mazen Touban, general manager of Bosch Packaging Technology office in Cairo. “With a regional office in Cairo, Egypt, our customers benefit from a local presence backed by an international knowledge network and world-class expertise to meet the specific challenges of this market.”
The technologies will be on display at Gulfood Manufacturing 2014, Dubai World Trade Center, 9-11 November 2014 in Sheikh Saeed Hall, booth E84.
