With the new Sigpack VPF (vertical platform flat pouch), Bosch introduces the first freely scalable flat pouch machine to the market.
With the modularization of the dosing and cross-sealing units, the Sigpack VPF is freely scalable from two to up to 12 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.
The Sigpack VPF can be fitted with Bosch’s new condition monitoring platform.
The software solutions provide real-time information about machines, systems or process status on site.
It does so through continuous data acquisition, which makes it possible to indicate upcoming errors before downtime occurs.
Based on pre-defined tolerance levels, for instance for temperature or cycle time, operators receive notifications of deviations via e-mail.
This way, the platform helps to prevent cost-intensive downtime and increase machine availability.
