Dosing and Sealing More Performance per Square Meter
Bosch will present its new Sigpack VPF (Vertical Platform Flat Pouch). With a variable number of lanes and high dosing accuracy, the Sigpack VPF offers a high performance by combining modular flexibility with high production speed.
Flat pouches are the trend among all ages. Whether it is coffee, sugar, toiletries or food supplements, nearly everything today can be packaged in small, convenient and easily portioned flat pouches. With the new Sigpack VPF (Vertical Platform Flat Pouch), Bosch introduces the first freely scalable flat pouch machine to the market.
Frank Buehler, product manager at Bosch Packaging Technology says: “In 2016, we won the German Packaging Award with the prototype of the Sigpack VPF. We are pleased to present the unique advantages of the machine to manufacturers in the food and pharmaceutical industry, for the first time, at interpack 2017.” The Sigpack VPF offers the best performance per square meter of floor space by combining modular flexibility with high production speed at a low overall operating cost.
With highly flexible design equipped for future market requirements
The Sigpack VPF stands out with its unsurpassed flexibility enabling manufacturers to adjust quickly and economically to production volumes and product changes according to market needs. Thanks to the modularization of the dosing and cross-sealing units, the Sigpack VPF is freely scalable from two to up to twelve lanes.
In addition, pouch sizes are easily adjustable. The new decentralized stock of product makes it possible to package different products, such as salt and pepper, at the same time on one machine. Frank Buehler explains: “The complete modularization of the dosing and sealing units allows for flexible lanes, making the new Sigpack VPF a future-proof investment for every manufacturer.”
