Amcor and Bosch Packaging Technology have jointly unveiled ZipSpeed material for Bosch's Doy Zip baggers, to accelerate production and boost product appeal.

ZipSpeed has been specifically developed for Bosch's new SVE 2520DZ vertical Doy Zip bag machine to manufacture zipper packages.

The developers will be demonstrating the material and the machine in Bosch stand at FachPack in Germany from 29 September to 1 October.

"To maximise performance on the machine, we developed a clever sealing application that eliminates the need to punch holes in order to form and seal the bags."

Claimed to be the fastest Doy Zip vertical bagger in the market, the SVE 2520DZ machine can speed up the production process of the brands by offering quicker product packaging services.

Bosch has coordinated with research and development team at Amcor to come up with ZipSpeed, which is a PET/PE laminate that is easy to run, offers excellent seal strength and a smoother appearance when applying reclosable zippers, the companies said.

Amcor Flexibles R&D director Joachim Pietzsch said: "To maximise performance on the machine, we developed a clever sealing application that eliminates the need to punch holes in order to form and seal the bags. This creates simplified and faster processing.

"The ZipSpeed seal temperature range is from 100°C to 180°C, which allows customers to use lower seal temperatures.

"At the same time, the material has high heat-resistance for the application of recloseable zippers."

Bosch introduced SVE 2520 DZ in May. The vertical bagger produces seven styles of bags at the rate of 100 units a minute.
