Bosch Packaging Technology will be showcasing a complete line of bar production and packaging systems at the Interpack 2014 in Dusseldorf, Germany.
Bosch’s innovations in bar production and packaging are all designed for simple integration with existing Bosch technology, allowing manufacturers to partner with a single-source solution provider for their entire bar line.
Key innovations to be presented at the Interpack 2014 include the new WRF 600 Flex roller former for bar production, the non-contact product distribution station Transver SDP, the Pack Feeder 4 infeed system with Pack 401 horizontal flow wrapper for primary packaging, and Bosch’s seamless bar line for high-speed primary and secondary packaging combined with the Elematic 3001 case packer.
The WRF 600 Flex roller former optimises or eliminates the trim when processing bar masses, including cereal, candy and fruit. To produce different bar formats the smooth slab former offers a flexible and steplessly adjustable working width. Bosch’s WRF 600 Flex enables width changes without production stoppages, maximising uptime and output while achieving maximum product usage.
Bosch will also conduct live demonstrations of its seamless system for the primary and secondary packaging of bars, reaching speeds up to 1,500 bars per minute. The bar line’s technology on display at the show comprises of the Sigpack DCI product distribution station, the Sigpack HRM horizontal flow wrapper with automated precision splicer, the Sigpack TTM toploader and the Elematic 3001 case packer.
Ideal for manufacturers supporting different brands and products, the Elematic 3001 case packer has the flexibility to handle a variety of pack styles, including tray, classic full wraparound and two-part, shelf-ready packaging.
Bosch will also display its non-contact product distribution station Transver SDP and Pack Feeder 4 infeed system, which allow bar manufacturers to increase line efficiency. Sophisticated product inspection on the Pack Feeder 4 detects and rejects misaligned products to ensure maximum productivity and less downtime. The Pack Feeder 4 will be showcased with the Pack 401 horizontal flow wrapper, now available with a narrower cutting head for higher packaging speeds for heat seal applications.
Bosch products will be on display at Interpack 2014, Dusseldorf, Germany from May 8 to 14 in Hall 6, Booth A31 – C58.
