Whether chocolate, cereal or protein – consumers are increasingly asking for more individual bar products. In order to live up to manufacturers’ growing demands for maximum productivity, flexibility and quality, Bosch is unveiling its seamlessly integrated bar production system at interpack 2017. The latest innovation is the intelligent Sigpack FIT product infeed with linear motor technology, which allows for non-contact product feeding and easy format changes. The cross-sealing station of the Sigpack HRM flow wrapper is based on high precision direct drive technology and reaches film speeds of up to 150 metres per minute. With the same setup, bars of varying sizes can be packed.
A highlight in secondary packaging is the new intelligent Sigpack PFI feeding module using linear motor technology. The new module gently feeds the products into the Sigpack TTM topload cartoner, which loads up to 150 cartons per minute without the use of vacuum.
Industry 4.0 solutions of Bosch Packaging Technology support operators in their daily work. The biscuit system supports format changes using RFID-tags. If a different format is needed, operators can scan the part’s RFID-code and thus ensure that it is installed in the right spot. This increases efficiency and reduces potential errors.
Manufacturers can maximize productivity with a single-source solution. Combined with the bar packaging system, the Bosch Contiline encompasses the entire production process, from mixing and slab forming, crosswise cutting and coating to final cooling. Using Bosch technology, manufacturers can rely on one single source for their bar production process with a complete system solution.
Visitors to Düsseldorf’s interpack 2017 can experience innovations in bar production and packaging live at Bosch’s stand C30 in Hall 6.
