Design simplicity for ease of use and high reliability.

Bosch Packaging Technology is debuting the SVC 4020, the first machine in its new hygienic and flexible vertical packaging machine platform at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013 and FachPack 2013.

The SVC 4020 is ideal for fresh and frozen food packaged in pillow bags, while subsequent machines in the platform will be available with additional pack styles to handle a wide variety of free-flowing dry, wet and frozen food products.

Bosch designed the SVC with simplicity, versatility and cleanability in mind, focusing on hygienic design to help manufacturers meet diverse food handling regulations.

“We designed the SVC vertical packaging platform to be uniquely customizable,” says Robert van Mol, product manager, Bosch Packaging Technology. “It can be tailored to meet the needs of numerous industries, as well as meet diverse hygienic levels. The SVC gives our customers a versatile and flexible solution to maximize business opportunities.”

Streamlined design simplifies production
Composed of a stainless steel frame, the SVC offers manufacturers a streamlined design for clutter-free workspaces, simplifying operations. Its electric cabinet has been incorporated within the machine frame to reduce the number and length of cords and cables.

Quick and tool-less format changeovers reduce downtime. The SVC is easy to operate via an intuitive Human Machine Interface (HMI) to reduce training time and improve productivity.

Versatility from product to package
The SVC gives food producers the versatility they need to package practically any free-flowing product and the ability to react quickly to changing end-user demands. Products can range from sensitive dry infant powders to nuts, confectionery products, mixed salads, cheese, protein, frozen food, as well as many other products.

The platform technology accommodates multiple bag styles, including pillow, side gusseted, stand-up, corner seal and doy, with various reclose and easy opening features in different sizes up to 400 millimeters.

Manufacturers can also choose their desired sealing technology, including poly heat seal (PHS), heat seal (HS), and ultrasonic.

Designed with hygiene in mind to ensure product safety
The SVC has been designed to simplify cleaning, as well as to offer a wide range of hygienic features to meet specific customer requirements. Its dry cleaning configuration allows for basic wiping when packaging most dry foods and powders.

For wet cleaning, the SVC can be wiped down with simple cleaning agents. In case product-specific characteristics require more intense cleaning procedures with foam cleaning agents, the SVC is available in a washdown configuration. Additional hygienic features include sloped stainless steel surfaces ensuring proper drainage and preventing food residue.

The elimination of holes and slots as well as the reduced amount of cables further supports a hygienic environment. Options for increased hygiene levels also include upgraded components, such as stainless steel film rollers and improved hygienic forming sets that offer higher protection.

Fast film speeds
The SVC’s film input is designed ergonomically, sloping at 45 degrees providing the operator optimum access and enhanced speed for threading and splicing in new film. There are fewer rollers compared to previous generations of packaging equipment, increasing bag per minute speeds. Total Preventive Maintenance (TPM) has been incorporated in the basic design philosophy, so producers are reassured that their production will continuously run at its highest efficiency.

The SVC vertical packaging machine platform will be on display at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013, in the Central Hall, booth C-1900 from September 23 to 25, and at FachPack 2013, booth 305, Hall 4A of the Exhibition Center, Nuremberg, September 24 to 26.
