Meet the RFS-Series at Pack Expo Las Vegas

Next generation rotary filler for dairy and food products

  • All servo fill and seal equipment for pre-made containers reduces downtime
  • Efficient, accurate dosing with simple and quick product changeovers
  • HMI 4.0 for simplified workflows and easy operation

Las Vegas, North America – At PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2017, Bosch Packaging Technology will debut the next generation Osgood RFS-Series rotary in North America. The machine hygienically fills, seals and caps dairy and food products into premade cups.

Rich Mueller, sales director of Osgood Industries says: “This machine is a perfect example how the North American market can benefit from Osgood and Bosch collaboration on product development. The best solutions from teams across the globe are brought together, making the products better, more efficient, and complete product line solutions from one service provider, much easier to deliver.”

Dairy and food filling for compact spaces

The Osgood RFS-Series servo rotary machine offers abundant features while keeping its footprint to a minimum. The four lane RFS-4001 fills cups at speeds of up to 160 cups per minute (9,600 cups per hour) and is a good alternative for producers with limited production space. Available in both clean and ultra-clean execution, the machine can fill a wide range of dairy and other food products into different pack styles – for example, round or square cups, trays, and heat seal using pre-die cut foils or roll stock film plus overcap.

The RFS-4001 filler is shown with a harmonized pump design, which provides high filling accuracy and easier interchangeability between different machines. Just four basic dosing parts cover nearly all dosing principles and applications making product changeovers faster and easier. Upgraded servo motors allow quick and easy adjustments to the set-up, enabling changeovers in less than 15 minutes. The RFS-Series filler can utilize one of three different machine controls (Bosch Rexroth, Rockwell or Siemens), allowing customers an easy integration of the machine into their existing production lines.

Finally, the Osgood RFS can be equipped with the latest HMI 4.0, which automatically leads operators through each of the production steps for easy operation and report functions. With the new HMI 4.0 as gateway to connected industries, it’s the first step to an intelligent, completely coordinated production line.

To see the Osgood RFS-4001 live, visit Bosch at PACK EXPO Las Vegas from September 25th to 27th, 2017, Central Hall, booth C-2800.
