Bosch Packaging Technology offers one-stop, customised solutions for the production of confectionery, muesli and cereal bars. The Contiline bar forming system brings advances to the forming, cooling, fanning-out, cutting and coating of bars.

The Contiline bar forming system starts with a two-roller-former which smoothes the cooked bar mass into a flat layer. In the cutting area, the Contiline is able to produce shaped bars with unique profiles, as well as regular rectangular-cut products. A new fanning-out system positions freshly cut bars in a crosswise direction to prevent the lateral cut surfaces from sticking together, while simultaneously achieving the optimum distance between the bars for the coating process. After fanning-out, the cross-cutting machine cuts the ropes into individual bars. Two separate servo axes guide the cutting knife for optimal cutting quality.

The bar forming system delivers high productivity and operational availability, offering several beneficial features. Line stops for cleaning purposes are not necessary, as soiled machine parts can be cleaned without the need to stop production. Mass accumulations on machine surfaces are prevented by special surface coatings or easy-to-handle strippers. The machine operator does not need any tools. All removable, or adjustable, parts of the machine are equipped with quick-release mechanisms. This makes the Contiline easy to handle and flexible for different applications and formats.

In case of malfunctions in upstream or downstream processes, or in the case of smaller interruptions of production, the Contiline need not necessarily be stopped. The line speed of all of the Contiline’s units can be changed in seconds from the central control panel.

For maintenance and cleaning operations, an integrated quick-release system ensures easy and fast access, without tools, to all parts of the Contiline system.
