Bosch Packaging Reveals New Vertical Bagger

It’s always nice to have options.

At the 2009 Pack Expo tradeshow in Las Vegas, Bosch Packaging Technology released its new Bosch SVI vertical bagger, complete with in-field upgrades that offer many bag style options for the customer, such as:

The machine’s low height and the numerous in-field upgrade options make the new SVI vertical bagger series from Bosch ideal for a wide range of food and non-food applications. This combination allows the intermittent SVI machines to produce bags with corner seal and doy style bags with optional zippers. For corner sealing, the manufacturer can upgrade the machine with an additional module. The production of a doy style bag can be easily performed by turning the machine cross seal jaws to a 90 degrees position. Whenever the package style is changed, there is no need to adapt the machine height or dosing platform This efficient changeover reduces machine downtime during format change and increases the overall performance of the equipment.

For the production of several standard bag styles the operator simply changes the forming set. This flexibility allows manufacturers to produce a high variety of packaging styles for point-of-sale diversity with a very short time to market. The SVI series is designed to package an unlimited range of food and non-food products, such as powders, bakery and confectionery items, tea, coffee, fresh pasta, as well as pet food and non-food products such as detergents.

The SVI series consists of two machines for packaging different format ranges: the SVI 4020 packages bag sizes with a maximum 400-mm width, while the SVI 2620 forms a bag with a maximum 260-mm width. The machines have an output ranging from 10- to 120-bags per minute.
