World-leading supplier of processing and packaging solutions, Bosch Packaging Technology will be launching several new packaging innovations at the upcoming Interpack 2014 exhibition in Duesseldorf, Germany.
With consumers and manufacturers placing an increased emphasis on food safety, Bosch’s packaging innovations are designed to meet global hygiene standards ensuring product quality. Some of these solutions include a state-of-the-art vertical bagger and auger filler for enhanced cleanability; liquid sachet packaging machine with easy cleaning and quick product changeovers; and horizontal flow wrapper for high seal integrity and extended shelf life.
Designed as an integrated solution for hygienic powder packaging, the FVS auger filler and SVC 2620 vertical bagger are both designed for enhanced cleanability, versatility and ease of use. Bosch’s new SVC 2620 is the latest addition to its new SVC platform, which has been designed with simplicity, versatility and cleanability in mind. Both the SVC machine and the FVS auger filler allow for easy accessibility to all product-contact parts, enabling quick product changeovers, and significantly reducing the risk of cross-contamination, which is important for products such as milk powder, infant nutrition, gluten and gluten-free flour and other powdery substances.
Bosch will also introduce the new liquid dosing capabilities for its Sigpack RN vertical sachet machine for packaging four-side-seal sachets for the food, pharmaceutical, healthcare and cosmetics industries. Designed to handle a wide range of packaging materials, ensuring hermetic sealing with high efficiency, the machine is capable of producing 1,000 packs per minute with high filling accuracy on up to eight lanes. The standard machine features the clean-out-of-place (COP) function, with its machine parts designed for easy disassembly and cleaning. An optional clean-in-place (CIP) function allows for automatic and simplified wash down without machine disassembly.
Pack 301 ID, the inverted horizontal flow wrapper will also make its European debut at the Interpack. Developed for the packaging of soft, sticky, flexible or difficult-to-handle products, the inverted horizontal flow wrapper transports the packaging film from below, while the product is fed directly from the feeding system onto the film. To protect freshness and extend product shelf-life, it features long-dwell cross sealing technology. Based on the Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) principle, the hygienic and open design of the Pack 301 ID facilitates fast cleaning and easy operation. The machine automatically detects products located between the cross-seal jaws and makes sure that these packages remain unsealed and are rejected.
Bosch will also highlight its tailor-made after-sales services for enhanced hygiene and optimised overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) at the Interpack show.
According to Martin Tanner, director marketing and business development, product division confectionery and food, Bosch Packaging Technology, food safety has never been a more critical concern for manufacturers. Bosch designs all their machines to meet application-specific hygiene requirements, while enabling customers to achieve their production goals.
Bosch’s solutions will be on display at Interpack 2014, Duesseldorf, Germany from May 8 to 14 in hall 6, booth A31 – C58.
