Established over 35 years ago, A.M.P Rose is one of the world’s leading machine builders, process and packaging solutions provider for the confectionery, chocolate and snack industries, all of which will be on display at this year’s Interpack exhibition.

The company continues to further develop new and exciting range of factory automation machinery, both with and without the use of robotics. The latest in linear transport systems, which combines the benefits of both rotary and linear systems, has been integrated to feed the company’s multipack wrapping machines. The main focus for this development is flexible format changes, where downtime is almost non-existent when a client wants to change the collations on their multi-packs.

Robotics

Robotics, and developing a system that works in conjunction with current automated systems is another area of development, this will mainly focus on case filling. Offering the complete packaging and boxing solution. With this expansion of factory automation machinery, the company will have more product lines to offer full factory solutions.

In addition to the automated systems the family owned business are further developing their machine and factory data solutions to give managers real data directly from their machines. A.M.P Rose will be integrating electronics, software, sensors and network connectivity to their machines so they can collect and exchange data from the physical machine to other physical devices where managers can see live data of their lines. Industry 4.0 and Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to allow a manager to not only monitor their lines but also remotely control them, whether that is from their laptop or mobile device.

As well as these exciting innovations the company will also display at the show; the company’s skill in the design, manufacture and operation of cut and wrap machinery. The AMP Rose ‘750’ is a versatile yet low cost cut and wrap machine, which has been designed for strength and durability, as well as ease of operation and low maintenance.

The machine sizes, shapes, cuts to length and wraps toffee, fruit chew, bubble gum, or high boiled sugar fed in rope form from a Batch Roller/Rope Sizer or extruder. Versions of the ‘750’ machine can produce square, rectangular, round or cylindrical shaped sweets and lollipops, in various wrapping styles.

Bar Forming

The company has seen in recent years that customers are increasingly looking for complete solutions to their bar forming requirements. A.M.P Rose are well equipped to supply complete lines for bar manufacturing, or single machines to add to current lines.

Bar forming lines can be supplied for single or multi layered bars. The equipment can incorporate a number of products into the bars this can be items like peanuts, pistachio’s, walnuts, dried fruit etc.

Complete turnkey lines can be supplied to suit the product you want to make, such as; energy and protein bars, candy bars, cereal bars, fruit bars, peanut brittle bars, nougat bars and many other pliable products.

Bar forming lines are very flexible for producing different products, you can change from slab bar forming to rope forming lines; the change overs can be quick and simple.

NR10 Neapolitan Wrapping Machine

Finally the NR10 Neapolitan wrapping machine will be on display, it is an adjustable high speed automatic wrapping machine for square and rectangle tablets. The machine can be supplied as a hand fed machine, or with an automatic feeding system.

The machine has been designed to use either single or double wrappers, with the outer paper taken from a stack of pre-cut labels rather than the more common reel fed systems.

By using pre-printed labels, this allows the manufacturer to pack small quantities of product, which is particularly useful for smaller volume clients such as marketing promotions, corporate gifts etc.

A.M.P Rose will have this new exciting machinery on display at the Interpack exhibition in Dusseldorf, located in hall 3, Stand 3 E29. For further information visit www.amp-rose.com.
