Bosch SPC and TFC liquid food filling machines
Bosch Packaging Technology has released two products for liquid food filling: the SurePouch clean-fill (SPC) machine and a thermoforming clean-fill (TFC) machine.
The SPC machine is a roll-fed vertical form, fill and seal (VFFS) machine that produces the SurePouch, a line of reclosable, flexible stand-up pouches with multiple shape and fitment options. The SPC can create four pouch formats, including the stand-up EZPouch, EZGable and EZSquare formats. The pouch formats range in filling volume sizes from 100 mm to 5 L.
Bosch claims the machine achieves hygiene standards up to ultra clean-fill. The pouch packs are fitted with reclosable spouts that are ultrasonically welded to the exterior of the pouch. As the product is filled directly into the pouch and not through the spout, they offer better hygiene, claims Bosch. The closure only comes into contact with the product when the package is opened.
The TFC machine clean-fills fresh products and foods requiring a cooling chain, such as yoghurts and desserts, and single-serve portions of butter, margarine, condiments, microwavable convenience foods and pet foods, in a variety of sizes. The production of multiple cup and label heights without tool changes means the machine can be adapted to different production and market needs. The machine has an operational height of 1 m.
The cylindrical thermoforming mould can be adjusted by the user and is then synchronised with the labelling system. The wraparound labelling system has a central cutting blade, allowing the operator to adjust sizes by changing the label reel. The system positions the labels so the front is always facing the outside of a multipack.
