press release

MOSCOW, RUSSIA – At UPAKOVKA / UPAK ITALIA 2014, Bosch Packaging Technology, a leading supplier of processing and packaging equipment, is offering complete solutions for the Russian dairy, confectionery, bakery, chocolate and cereal industries. With more than 20 years in the Russian market, Bosch’s portfolio includes processing, filling, dosing and packaging equipment, giving manufacturers the benefit of a single-source solution provider for their entire production line. Designed to maximize product safety and increase production efficiency, Bosch’s portfolio for the confectionery market includes processing, distributing, feeding, flow and double twist wrapping, die-folding, vertical packaging, and robotics for both primary and secondary packaging. Specifically for the dairy sector, the company offers filling and packaging solutions with various hygiene levels up to aseptic. To provide flexibility for products with the need for extended shelf life (ESL), the portfolio features vertical form, fill and seal as well as thermoform machines, pre-made cup and bottle filling machines, PET bottle blowing and filling systems, as well as SurePOUCH stand-up pouch formats. Russian manufacturers also benefit from local service support.

“Russian food producers are increasingly looking for flexible packaging solutions that allow for rapid adaptations to ever-changing market needs,” said Aleksey Kokotov, general manager, Bosch Packaging Technology, Russia. “Bosch offers reliable processing and packaging equipment to help large manufacturers, as well as small- and mid-sized businesses, grow their production while ensuring high product standards.”

Complete vertical packaging solutions for streamlined production
With a production site in Tolyatti, mid-Volga region of Russia, Bosch is offering its small-, medium- and large-sized customers complete vertical packaging solutions for all types of pack styles available in the market. Format changeovers can be completed quickly without tools decreasing downtime for a more efficient packaging process. A wide selection of sealing technologies, including cold, heat and ultrasonic sealing, ensures product safety.

The ability to tailor packaging lines to specific customer needs enables Bosch to handle demanding and sophisticated applications. The company has recently supplied a bespoke vertical packaging solution developed in Tolyatti to a Russian cereal producer. The high-speed line allows the food manufacturer to mix three different grains in different quantities from three infeed systems in the same package. Streamlined production process coupled with equipment reliability resulted in increased uptime and output-enhancing performance.

The latest advancements for its vertical form, fill and seal machines focus on improved hygiene, cleanability and ease of use, as well as the ability to handle all existing bag styles. These will allow premium segment producers of coffee, chocolate, confectionery and bakery to meet strict hygiene regulations and product safety requirements.

Flexibility for chocolate manufacturers
Bosch also offers complete packaging solutions for chocolate producers, featuring advanced technologies specially designed for increased flexibility at the point-of-sale. Depending on product and shelf differentiation requirements, package types include flow wrap, die-fold, brush-fold, double twist wrap, as well as pillow, side gusseted, block-bottom, corner sealed and doy-style bags.

Tailored to gently handle soft, fragile, delicate or sticky products, Bosch’s distribution, feeding and horizontal flow wrapping solutions are ideal for versatile applications. With easy-to-operate electronic controls and mechanically reproducible adjustments for quick changeovers, Bosch’s portfolio of horizontal flow wrappers allows food producers to reduce downtime and increase production efficiency. To meet rapidly changing market needs and help Russian manufacturers stay ahead of competition, Bosch offers short lead time especially for its horizontal packaging lines.

To further enhance flexibility, Bosch presents die-fold and double twist wrapping technologies designed to assure product safety and a premium look of this traditional Russian market wrapping style.

Robots to reduce total cost of ownership
To help Russian manufacturers automate their production lines, Bosch is also offering robotics solutions suitable for a wide range of upstream and downstream applications – from picking and placing pralines for chocolate assortments, to placing vertical bags into display cases. Eliminating human error and direct product contact, Bosch robotics solutions strengthen product safety and allow food producers to meet strict industry regulations, while advanced gripping technology guarantees gentle product handling. Enhanced speed reduces cost per pick and therefore total cost of ownership, helping manufacturers promote growth.

Optimized product protection for dairy applications
Bosch also offers equipment for the Russian dairy sector that is based on the extensive experience and profound know-how. Aseptic solutions allow manufacturers to achieve long shelf life outside of the cooling chain for desserts and baby food, while machines with clean and ultra-clean hygiene levels enable ESL packaging for yogurts and other fresh products. Bosch offers multiple packaging options for a high level of flexibility, process integrity and shelf differentiation, including thermoform, fill and seal machines, PET blow-molding technology, Ampack filling machines for pre-made containers and SurePOUCH stand-up flexible pouch styles. Designed to provide product protection for sensitive food products, these solutions help Russian dairy producers reduce waste and stay ahead of competition.

Bosch experts will be on site at UPAKOVKA / UPAK ITALIA 2014, EXPOCENTRE Krasnaya Presnya, Moscow, Russia, from January 28 to 31, 2014. Visit Bosch’s booth 22C44 to learn more about its vertical packaging solutions, as well as packaging technologies for the dairy sector; or Polo’s booth 22B41 to learn more about Bosch’s horizontal, die-fold, double twist wrapping and robotics packaging solutions.
