Bosch launches efficient vertical packaging system for ground coffee at Specialty Coffee Expo

Co-operation with Spee-Dee produces highest output per square foot in the industry

  • Cost-effective twin tube on single frame doubles output on small footprint
  • Up to 300 high-quality pillow bags per minute to address market growth
  • Integrated checkweigher reduces product waste

Seattle, USA – At Specialty Coffee Expo 2018, Bosch Packaging Technology, a leading global supplier of technology and services, will launch its new duplex packaging solution, enabling ground coffee manufacturers in North America to achieve the highest output per square foot in the industry. The unique combination of a Spee-Dee auger filler and a vertical bagger from Bosch produces up to 300 high-quality fractional coffee bags per minute on minimum floor space. The cost-effective design supports product and material waste reduction, while simplifying cleaning and maintenance. See the solution live on the Bosch booth 731 at the Specialty Coffee Expo, 19 - 22 April.

“We’re very enthusiastic about announcing the launch of this cost-effective compact system for ground coffee in North America”, says Alden Schiavi, Sales Manager at Bosch Packaging Technology. “The industry has been waiting for this unique combination of high speed, small footprint and affordable design”.

Small but mighty: the next generation of continuous motion machines

Spee-Dee’s 3600 Twin auger filler and Bosch’s SVE 1820 MR continuous motion bagger combine to make this duplex machine fit on just 36.6 square feet (3.4 square meters), doubling the output on a fraction of the production space. The new solution produces up to 300 consistently airtight bags per minute, with a maximum bag width of seven inches (180 millimeters) – the largest possible bag width for a duplex machine. Coffee manufacturers can produce a wide range of bag sizes for one- to eight-ounce packs (28 – 227 grams).

Efficient to the core

To protect such valuable product as coffee, the Spee-Dee auger filler offers high filling accuracy through tendency regulation with a checkweigher and thus cuts product waste. It also features a patented sliding key tooling lock for effortless changeovers, while a single hopper inlet simplifies the upstream product delivery system. The open vertical form, fill and seal (VFFS) machine design makes cleaning, maintenance and monitoring easy, improving overall equipment effectiveness.

Maximum product and material flexibility

No matter if ground coffee producers need to switch from decaf to regular or flavored coffee, tool-less hopper changeovers reduce downtime and minimize cross-contamination risk. Customers also profit from the optional nitrogen flushing feature, which extends the product’s shelf life. Furthermore, the high-quality seals work with various film materials – coffee producers can choose between two- and three-ply films without compromising on sealing quality.

Bosch’s full portfolio for coffee includes technologies from raw material weighing and dosing, protection valves to end-of-line packaging.
