Bosch Packaging Technology is set to unveil a new application of its Elematic 3000 S case packer, which can handle and place glass jars into tray and hood secondary packaging.
The machine’s infeed is surrounded with protective covers, getting rid of the risk of jars falling to the floor and breaking. The wrap around technology of the machine allows jars to be gently but tightly packed, reducing the risk of product damage as they are transported to retailers.
According to Bosch, the case packer can pack a variety of different sizes including 250, 400, 500 and 750 gram jars and can be adjusted to match the preceding filling machine’s speed, without affecting the production line efficiency.
The machine also features a grouping system, which includes an accumulation area to help control the delivery of products to the machine, and ensure consistency of the product flow.
The Elematic 3000 S has a modular design that combines a packaging tray with lid and a full wrap around system, enabling the operator to shift between the two formats and speed up changeovers. The design is also transparent and allows operators to identify any issues quickly.
