NUPAC , Australian agent for the range of Bosch bag making machines, has announced that prices have fallen 10 to 15 per cent across most of the range.
Nupac managing director Peter Grant said the reduction was a result of streamlining design, and a more cost-effective manufacturing technique.
"These improvements have not only reduced the price, but have also made all bag makers in the Bosch range easier to service and more efficient, so it is a win-win situation whichever way you look at it."
Bosch has introduced a series of improvements of which the net effect is a price drop of between 10 to 15 per cent.
The improvements include a new servo drive that has simplified software requirements; the development of a universal longseal drive reducing the number of unique components across the range; and the development of a new modular pneumatic system that is smaller, faster and provides improved flow rates.
"Bosch really takes a holistic approach to design and manufacture and this has provided some great, if extremely simple design updates that directly effects the machine's sale price," Mr Grant said.
"My favourite of these would have to be the fact that all cables are now identified with printed labels, reducing assembly time and subsequently cost.
"It is the attention to detail that really makes the Bosch product stand out."
