Smurfit Kappa has produced 150th automatic Bag-in-Box filling line machine for the liquid and semi-liquid industry.
The automatic web filling line, which was used for Bag-in-Box and Pouch-Up products, was manufactured by Smurfit Kappa’s BIB Equipment division.
The automatic web filling machines feature advanced technologies, including filling valve with separate vacuum and nitrogen circuits that reduce the oxygen pickup during filling.
The soft drop feature of the machine’s bag will help to reduce multiple leakers, while raised buffer tank enables a better flow and more accurate filling.
The automatic machines are available in four different versions, which will be used for different production requirements.
The BIB 700 and BIB 900 machines are available in single or double head versions.
Since 20 years, BIB Equipment has been offering automatic web filling lines for the liquid and semi-liquid industry in Europe, Russia, Latin America, North America and Asia Pacific
Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box also offers customised filling solutions for each project ranging from semi-automatic and complementary machines to complete the whole filling system.
BIB Equipment manager Florent Neveu said: “Following extensive research done by our in-house experts and using the experience we have built up over the years, filling is one of the most important steps of the whole Bag-in-Box process.
“To succeed, it is important to define the characteristics of the project from the beginning, and make sure all the steps are approved by the customer. By reaching this milestone, we once again have proven our efficiency, flexibility and responsiveness.”
