Bosch Packaging Systems’ new bar packaging line consists of the Sigpack HRM horizontal flow wrapping machine and the Sigpack TTM car toner and is designed specifically for the primary and secondary packaging of bars and bar-shaped products. The packaging line, including station, accumulator, flow wrapper, cartoner and all the interfaces, is designed as a single, seamless system rather than a chain of machines. To optimize production flow, the speeds of all components in the line are balanced to eliminate bottlenecks and minimize downtime. The cartoner was developed for speeds of up to 150 cartons per minute, enabling an overall output of 1,000 bars or more per minute. (715) 246-6511 www.boschpackaging.com/nrd
