Packaging machinery manufacturer Theegarten-Pactec has developed a new modular concept for packing chocolate products.
The new design-optimised CWM2 packaging machine has an infeed belt with a separate servo motor to enable easier speed adjustment after format changes. This allows packaging materials to be cut at different lengths for inner and outer wrappers.
The machine can produce a wide range of wrapping styles such as double twist, top twist, side twist, top clip and bunch wrap, as its modular construction simplifies the changeover between wrapping styles and formats.
With a capacity to process all conventional wrapping foils, CWM2 can wrap up to 500 chocolate products a minute.
Theegarten-Pactec's CWM2 is also equipped with a touchscreen for simplified operation, error diagnosis and data collection.
This is capable of providing several functions, which include no product - no packaging function, automatic changing of wrapping material reels, remote diagnostics and automatic ejection of double-wrapped products.
Theegarten-Pactec will present the new CWM2 packaging machine at IPACK-IMA this year.
Headquartered in Dresden, Germany, Theegarten-Pactec specialises in the design and construction of packaging machines for small pieced confectionery items.
The company combines more than 20 different types of packaging with a broad performance spectrum.
Apart from individual machines, the company also offers complete packaging lines as a turnkey partner to pack or wrap hard candies, toffees, chewy sweets, chewing gums, chocolate products, and various other food and non-food products.
