Germany’s Bosch Packaging Technology is set to launch its integrated system solution for liquid, viscous and pumpable foods at Pack Expo International 2016, which will be held in November in Chicago, Illinois, US.
The wrap-around carton solution, known as Certiwrap Elite, has been developed by Bosch in partnership with fill and seal machinery producer Osgood and packaging equipment provider Kliklok-Woodman.
Designed to meet the demand for containers in wrap-around cartons, the new fill and seal equipment can reduce downtime for pre-made containers.
Compliant with 3-A sanitary standards (3-A SSI), Certiwrap Elite's innovative O-ring-free pistons help decrease cleaning-in-place (CIP) time and remove the risk of product recalls.
Bosch plans to conduct live demonstrations for the new solution, such as packing two yogurt cups in a cost-efficient wrap-around carton.
Bosch Packaging Technology (Kliklok-Woodman) product manager secondary packaging and marketing director Janet Darnley said: “One of the key benefits of being a part of the Bosch Group, is the ability to mix and match primary and secondary packaging offerings to create truly unique solutions, which answer specific market and consumer needs.
“The liquid food system we are presenting at Pack Expo International this year is testimony to such cooperation, offering our customers’ trouble-free integration straight into their existing production setups.”
Capable of filling at a speed of up to 1,000 containers per minute, the new solution enables liquid food manufacturers to reduce material waste.
Bosch Packaging Technology (Osgood Industries) North America sales and marketing manager Jonathan Viens said: “In addition to the streamlined, easy-to-operate and hygienic system solution, our customers now benefit from Bosch’s extensive service network in North America.”
Certiwrap Elite, when integrated with the Osgood S-series fill and seal machine, provides a complete system solution for North American liquid food producers.
