Keeping it clean with powders

Sigpack VPF – a revolutionary concept for powder filling
Bosch introduces the first freely scalable flat pouch machine to the market at interpack 2017 (hall 6, booth C30). Thanks to the modularization of the dosing and cross-sealing units, the Sigpack VPF is freely scalable from two to up to twelve lanes. In addition, pouch sizes are easily adjustable. The new decentralized stock of product makes it possible to package different products, such as salt and pepper, at the same time on one machine. Exact dosing, deep pouch filling and hermetically tight seams reduce product loss and waste in the packaging process. This has a positive impact on the manufacturer’s business success. For the pharmaceutical industry, these qualities contribute greatly to patient safety, as over- or under-dosing of powdered medication can be avoided.

Zap-Module for Sealed Paper Packaging- a sustainable revolution

pulverFurther to the launch of the world’s first Sealed Paper Packaging on a vertical form, fill and seal machine (VFFS) in 2016, Bosch Packaging Technology and BillerudKorsnäs are bringing their latest innovations to interpack 2017 (hall 6, booth C58). On display for sugar manufacturers will be the SVE 2520 ZAP, Bosch’s first continuous-motion VFFS machine now capable of producing dust-tight, sealed paper bags. Flour producers will benefit from the new PME mandrel wheel machine with ZAP-Module.

Until now, the production of mono-material paper packaging was only possible with glued pre-made bags or formed paper bags on mandrel wheel technology. The VFFS technology, more flexible regarding formats and pack styles and thus popular on the market, previously only allowed bag production using polymer film or fully coated paper. With the ZAP-Module from Bosch it is now possible to process mono-material paper on VFFS technology with dust-tight sealing. The secret lies in the characteristics of the Axello®ZAP paper from BillerudKorsnäs, which was specially developed for this application, as well as in the ZAP-Module from Bosch Packaging Technology. Thanks to the partial application of the sealing agent with the ZAP-Module, throughout the supply chain no dust can enter the surroundings and the product cannot be contaminated once the packaging process has been completed.

Now, this new Sealed Paper Packaging is also available for the mandrel wheel technology to improve the traditional paper bags produced on this type of machines by making them dust-tight. As a result, retailers and consumers profit from clean shelves, high product protection and thus improved product quality. The combination of the robust mandrel wheel concept with the modular closing unit allows high size flexibility as wells as high production outputs. An added value of both technologies is the sustainable character of the paper material, which allows to save on production costs while preserving natural resources.
