For candy masses, Syntegon Technology is unveiling the BDS weighing, dosing, and mixing system for batchwise production with energy savings of 50%. The portfolio now comprises two systems with low energy consumption – the BDS system for batchwise and the BDK system for continuous production. In addition, the BMV mixing system will be on display at the fair, featuring a hygienic magnetic stirrer. For the production of jellies, Syntegon Technology is showing the Makat mogul system with new components, including an inline weighing system, a newly designed chain-free de-stacker, and innovative rotation nozzles for more effective cleaning processes. “Cleanability, ease of operation, and resource efficiency play a key role for confectionery manufacturers. These values feature in all our process solutions,” Frank Jansen, product manager at Syntegon Technology, explains.

Energy savings in candy production

Syntegon Technology sets its focus on intelligent and sustainability solutions, in particular concerning resource efficiency. With the innovative BDS weighing, dosing, and mixing system, confectionery manufacturers can produce sugar masses in an energy-efficient manner. Traditionally, water has to be added to the mass during mixing and then boiled out again later. This step is now largely eliminated, resulting in energy savings of around 50%. As an alternative to the continuously producing BDK system, the new BDS system doses the candy and binding masses in batches, which allows for more individual mixtures and thus offers manufacturers a higher degree of flexibility.

Syntegon Technology will also be showing the new BMV mixing system, which features a magnetically coupled stirring element. Compared to attached stirring elements, this method increases hygiene, cleanability, and accessibility. The new hygienic design rounds off the BMV and the BDS and ensures an even higher standard of hygiene.

New de-stacker and quality control concept for Makat mogul 

Syntegon Technology is also exhibiting the Makat mogul in stainless steel execution, featuring new components. These include the newly designed de-stacker that feeds the trays into the mogul. “This new development offers jelly manufacturers an attractive system that stands out for its easy operation, minimal troubleshooting times, and significantly reduced maintenance requirements. We have also paid special attention to accessibility and ergonomics,” Sandra Link, product manager at Syntegon Technology, explains.

The new inline weighing system is another highlight on the Makat mogul. It continuously monitors the product weight throughout the production process, which constitutes an integrated quality control concept.

New rotation nozzles simplify cleaning processes

The new Makat-specific rotation nozzles come into play in the mogul in several places. The RNC 6000 tray edge cleaning system cleans the tray edges accurately without brushes. In the spirit of sustainability, it not only reduces starch loss significantly but also minimizes production waste, cleaning efforts, and costs. The RNC 3000 product cleaning system, based on the same technology, removes starch from the products in preparation for the finishing process. The two RNC systems stand out for their significantly reduced maintenance requirements and long lifetime. They are also available as upgrade kits and are therefore suitable for retrofitting existing machines.

System provider with consulting expertise

Syntegon Technology, formerly Bosch Packaging Technology, has been developing machines for confectionery production since 1921. Customers can develop and test new products throughout the entire process chain – from the kitchen to forming and packaging – in close cooperation with Syntegon Technology at several product development centers. A comprehensive global service network complements Syntegon Technology’s line competence.

Syntegon Technology’s innovations will be shown at interpack 2020 from 7 to 13 May in Duesseldorf in Hall 6, Booth A30-C30.

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.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
