Affordable automation for small chocolate startup companies

Secondhand Sigpack DSN

With success comes increasing production volume. Processes, such as packaging the chocolate bars, need to be automated. This is often a hurdle for small businesses, as it involves considerable investment. How can machine manufacturers support smaller companies in this crucial phase?

We spoke with Antonio Pagliarulo, area sales manager at Bosch Packaging Technology, about affordable alternatives to automate the packaging process.

Antonio, what is the new secondhand offer all about?

So far, we have only been active in the new machine market. Our customers have been buying Sigpack DSN diefold wrapping machines from us for more than 50 years. In addition, we now offer completely modernized secondhand Sigpack DSN. These modernized diefold wrapping machines are very attractive in terms of costs, especially for smaller companies that plan to take their first steps towards automation. The affordable price is matched with a short delivery time of 3 to 4 months.

Alternatively, manufacturers who already own one or more DSNs can send their machines to us for rework and can thus considerably extend the service life of these machines.

What are the advantages in buying directly from Bosch?

We are the machine’s designers and have not stopped building new machines of this type to this day. We have installed more than 1,000 Sigpack DSNs – a large base that backs up the success of our machine. As the original manufacturer, we have technical expertise, experience and quality on our side – clear advantages over third-party suppliers. Our customers not only receive a machine, but also competent advice, training, service and original spare parts.

Where do you find the used machines?

Some of these machines will be replaced by the new Sigpack DSN. The used DSN machines are refurbished thoroughly and are then offered for resale as secondhand machines. Of course, we also keep an eye on relevant secondhand websites and subscribe to corresponding newsletters. We only buy machines after a detailed inspection.
