Bosch to debut Sigpack VPF scalable flat pouch machine at interpack 2017

Bosch's new flat pouch machine

The Sigpack VPF is the first freely scalable vertical flat pouch packaging machine on the market

The Sigpack VPF enables manufacturers to adjust quickly and economically to production volumes and product changes. Manufacturers from the food and pharma industries will, therefore, be able to tailor production to current market conditions. It is freely scalable from two to up to twelve lanes because of modularization of the dosing and cross-sealing units.

Powders such as instant coffee or sugar can be packaged in small, convenient and easily portioned flat pouches

Additionally, the 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 complete modularization of the dosing and sealing units allows for flexible lanes, making the new Sigpack VPF a future-proof investment for every manufacturer,” Buehler says.

Due to the variable number of lanes, the Sigpack VPF allows for optimal productivity. Its high dosing accuracy increases efficiency and safety

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
