Nuremberg, Germany – To help food producers enliven their brands and stand out at the point-of-sale, Bosch Packaging Technology, a leading supplier of processing and packaging solutions, will debut several enhancements to its vertical packaging portfolio at FachPack 2015. Bosch will present a new corner seal option for its vertical form, fill and seal platform SVC, targeting market segments that have high hygiene requirements like salads, frozen food, milk powder or shredded cheese. For nut, chocolate and confectionery manufacturers, the company will also unveil the fastest vertical Doy Zip bagger on the market, producing up to 100 high-quality Doy Zip bags per minute with maximum output per square meter and high return on investment (ROI).

“At Bosch, we believe that taking a one-size-fits-all approach will not allow manufacturers to sufficiently address diverse and constantly evolving consumer preferences. While corner seal bags catch the consumer's eye in the fresh and frozen food aisles, the Doy Zip bag will win the hearts of snack and confectionery buyers,” says Robert van Mol, product manager, Bosch Packaging Technology. “Bosch technology lets manufacturers produce these popular bag styles for specific market segments while also offering pack style flexibility, hygienic design and ease of use for maximum production efficiency.”

Taking hygiene to the next level
At FachPack 2015 Bosch will present new corner-sealing capabilities of its SVC 2620 VFFS machine. The SVC platform was designed with simplicity, versatility and cleanability in mind, focusing on hygienic design to help manufacturers meet diverse food handling regulations.

The new corner seal option can be easily integrated into the existing SVC machine without increasing the floor space needed. The increased pack style flexibility supports the needs of brand marketers who are increasingly choosing stand-up pack styles to enhance product appeal at point-of-sale. By adding the corner seal functionality, the machine can now produce up to four different pack styles, including pillow bag, gusseted, block bottom and corner seal. With this new option, manufacturers of frozen foods can use film material other than the standard polyethylene traditionally applied for pillow bags.

Designed to excite – the new Doy Zip bag from Bosch
Bosch will also present the new SVE 2520 DZ vertical bagger. Based on Bosch's well-proven SVE platform, the new bagger provides high-quality output within a compact, six square meter footprint, fitting easily within manufacturing lines. Its continuous-motion operation is coupled with a unique, patent-pending zipper applicator that enables high-speed production and ultimately a lower cost-per-bag for increased ROI. The machine offers seven different bag styles: pillow, gusseted, block bottom, corner seal, full corner, 3-sided, and doy, with various reclosure options, including zipper.

Premium quality and the attractive shape of Doy Zip bags help drive greater visibility and consumer preference for food products at the point-of-sale. The standability of the bag protects the contents for future consumption as well as allowing for easy opening and reclosing, features that further contribute to consumer convenience and enhance brand loyalty. By being able to vertically form, fill and seal, the machine has also been engineered for easy operation, maintenance and maximum flexibility. Changeovers from pillow to Doy Zip take as little as 45 minutes. Manufacturers can visit www.doyzip.com to learn more about Bosch's technology and request a sample bag.

Show attendees are invited to meet with Bosch experts at FachPack 2015, Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, Germany, September 29 to October 1, hall 3A, booth 337, and attend live demonstrations of the SVE 2520 DZ and the SVC 2620. To learn more about the Doy Zip bag style, visit www.doyzip.com.
