press release

At FachPack 2012 in Nuremberg, Germany (hall 4A, booth 304), Bosch Packaging Technology presents a new application of its Elematic 3000 S case packer, which is engineered to handle and place glass jars into tray and hood secondary packaging. This version of the machine was designed by Bosch to meet the needs of Rapunzel Naturkost, the German manufacturer and supplier of organic products. It suits manufacturers’ needs for an efficient and reliable secondary packaging system for their glass products.

High product protection
Designed to protect fragile and easily breakable glass jars, and reduce the risk of downtime, any machine parts that come into contact with product are made of plastic. In addition, the machine’s infeed is surrounded with protective covers, eliminating the risk of jars falling to the floor and breaking. Thanks to the wrap around technology, jars are gently but tightly packed, minimizing the risk of product damage as they are transported to retailers.

Maintaining production line efficiency
The case packer Elematic 3000 S can be easily adjusted to match the preceding filling machine’s speed, without affecting efficiency on the production line. Jars are transported from the filling machine to the Elematic 3000 S via two lanes, with each lane carrying a maximum of 95 jars per minute. The machine also features a special grouping system, which includes an accumulation area to help regulate the delivery of products to the machine, and ensure that product flow is consistent.

Quick format changeover and easy accessibility
The modular design of the Elematic 3000 S combines a packaging tray with lid and a full wrap around system, enabling the operator to switch quickly between the two formats and speeding up changeovers. The machine is capable of packaging a variety of different sizes, including 250, 400, 500 and 750 gram jars. The design of the machine is transparent, allowing operators to quickly identify any issues. To facilitate repairs when necessary, all parts of the machine can be easily reached. The MIS (maintenance information system) informs the operator about pending maintenance jobs and when they will need to be done.
