Bosch presents the latest vertical solutions at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2017

Bosch continuous motion baggers coupled with Ishida or Yamato weighers for optimal solutions for any industry

  • The most versatile VFFS machine now available for larger Doy Zip formats
  • Latest hygienic bagger to help food producers meet the FSMA regulations
  • A combination of Bosch and third-party equipment for any market need

Las Vegas, United States – Bosch Packaging Technology will introduce its two latest vertical solutions at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2017. For confectionery, bakery, nuts and grain producers, the Yamato multihead weigher ADW-O-0314S and Bosch’s SVE 3220 DZ vertical form, fill and seal (VFFS) machine safeguard both product and operations. The second solution combines the Ishida weigher CCW-RVE with Bosch’s SVC 4020 VFFS hygienic bagger to help food producers meet diverse food safety regulations.

“Our ultimate goal is to equip North American manufacturers with optimal solutions for their specific industry requirements and production goals,” says Kelly Meer, product manager at Bosch Packaging Technology, Inc., New Richmond. “At the show, we will demonstrate two of our latest vertical solutions featuring weighers from Yamato and Ishida. Our system competence includes processing, product handling, filling and dosing, primary, secondary and tertiary packaging that can be linked together with both Bosch and third-party equipment for system automation. The ultimate benefit of a single point of contact for the entire system makes this approach ideal for producers of all sizes.”

Maximum flexibility for free-flowing goods

North American confectionery, bakery and other free-flowing goods producers can now enjoy the premium quality and attractive shape of the larger Doy Zip bag thanks to the extension of Bosch’s proven SVE platform. Coupled with the Yamato weigher, the new solution offers high productivity, operational efficiency and format flexibility. The SVE 3220 DZ is capable of handling Doy Zip formats up to 320 millimeters high and 250 millimeters wide.

Additionally, the machine produces seven most popular bag styles, such as pillow, gusseted, block bottom, corner seal, full corner seal, 3-sided seal as well as Doy and Doy Zip, with changeovers from pillow to Doy Zip taking as little as 30 minutes. The bagger components also employ color codes to make changeovers clear and reproducible, eliminating operator errors and contributing to a Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) approach for maximized uptime.

New hole-punch feature brings more flexibility for different film types

Implementing a novel approach for a broader utilization of flexible films, Bosch has introduced a continuous motion process for punching holes and sealing the gussets of a doy bag together. The new hole-punching unit allows the gusset to be sealed inner layer to inner layer, providing wider options for packaging materials. The creation of the bottom gusset of the doy package is now matching the process of horizontal machines and can use the same popular film structures at a fraction of the footprint.

Hygienic design for frozen food

For producers of French fries, IQF, frozen vegetables, poultry as well as other free-flowing goods, Bosch will showcase its SVC 4020 vertical bagger together with the Ishida weigher CCW-RVE. This hygienic solution allows producers to meet strict hygienic requirements through easy cleaning while addressing individual production standards and demands.

Furthermore, the continuous motion VFFS machine is designed for high uptime, easy set-up, operation and maintenance. Changing pack styles and vacuum belts – as well as other adjustments – are quick and require no tools, thus reducing downtime. Bag style flexibility allows foods manufacturers to choose from pillow, block bottom, gusseted and corner seal pack styles with various reclose and easy opening features in widths of up to 400 millimeters.

As US manufacturers meet new challenges with reduced staffing, Bosch will offer continuous support, providing a single point of contact for the entire solution. To learn more about these solutions, visit Bosch at PACK EXPO Las Vegas from 25-27 September 2017, Central Hall, booth C-2800.
