The Sigpack VPF (Vertical Platform for Flat Pouches), the first freely scalable flat pouch machine from Bosch, has been honored with the German Design Award 2018 in the Excellent Product Design category. The German Design Council presents the prestigious award on an annual basis. The award is the second prestigious accolade for the Sigpack VPF following the German Packaging Award in 2016.
Production to suit changing customer requirements
The Sigpack VPF from Bosch represents a revolutionary concept for the filling of flat pouches with powder products such as sugar in terms of flexibility whereby food and pharma manufacturers will be able to scale production from two to 12 lines or to change pouch sizes quickly in order to meet current market demand. A further benefit of the Sigpack VPF is its innovative dosing system, whereby each line has its own dosing chamber and stock of product. This means, two products can be filled on the same machine at the same time.
