An integrated fill and seal platform for liquid and viscous foods – like yogurt – will be shown for the first time in November by its developer Bosch Packaging Technology.
The new line combines machinery from two US subsidiaries – Osgood and Kliklok-Woodman – that Bosch bought in 2015 (see Food Contact World 3.18, 5 October 2015).
The Germany-headquartered parent reports it has been developed to meet an evolving need for containers in wrap-around cartons. The new platform combines an Osgood S-series fill and seal machine – which can operate at speeds 1,000 containers per minute – twinned with a Certiwrap Elite wraparound cartoner
developed by Kliklok-Woodman. The latter unit has a maximum throughput rate of 400 units per minute for twin packs. This translates into a maximum throughput rate of 800 containers for the Bosch line.
Janet Darnley is director of marketing and product manager for secondary packaging at Kliklok-Woodman. She says: ‘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.’
