Bosch Packaging Technology has introduced a new cracker and cookie packaging system. The company designed the Pack 301 LS (Length Slug) system for efficient and flexible packaging of cookies and crackers. The machine joins the company’s line of Pack Series horizontal flow wrappers.
According to Bosch, the new system can pack rectangular, square and round products. The complete system can be operated by a single human-machine interface, improving fast changeovers for different formats and sizes, Bosch said.
Bosch designed the system’s Smart Measuring Loader to handle delicate and brittle cookie products at high speeds. According to the company, the Loader’s full-servo execution allows smooth placement of cookie portions into the cross chain from the loader.
According to Bosch, the machine’s Smart Transfer Unit features pre-acceleration for optimal synchronization with the infeed chain, thereby ensuring safe handling of the product when moving it from the cross chain into the machine infeed.
Technology Horizontal Packaging Global Product Manager Andreas Schildknecht said:
“We have developed the Pack 301 LS to further enhance Bosch’s biscuit packaging portfolio and to give manufacturers a competitive edge in the marketplace. Bosch provides unlimited possibilities of linking its proven standard modules to create adaptable and scalable end-to-end solutions.”
