Bosch Packaging Technology has opened its new customer solutions centre at Weert in the Netherlands, to help food and non-food producers maximize the value of their operations when selecting a complete vertical system solution for their packaging operation. At the centre, Bosch displays a selection of systems for the confectionery, chocolate, nuts, snacks and powder industries, while the company’s experts are also available for on-site consultation. The new interactive microsite www.solutions4value.com allows users to explore Bosch’s systems capabilities and book a visit to the customer solutions center at their convenience.

“The opening of the centre at our Weert site marks a new era in customer relations and service for Bosch,” says Leon van de Wiel, general manager at Bosch Packaging Technology. “Well known for our bespoke vertical packaging equipment that is used in the most challenging applications, we are now applying decades of experience and expertise to developing standardized, almost “off-the-shelf” system solutions for value. We are linking Bosch’s proven standard modules into complete solutions for specific industries such as confectionery, bakery, snacks and powders, and various requirements from high-hygiene to entry-level automation. The ultimate benefit of a single point of contact for the entire system makes this approach ideal for producers of all sizes.”

Confectionery and nuts
The new customer solutions center displays three standardized system solutions for nuts and confectionery manufacturers, depending on their key production and marketing objectives. For producers looking for shelf differentiation and convenience at the point-of-sale, the system solution with stand-up bag styles in shelf-ready cases is showcased. For those looking for maximum bag and case style flexibility to address ever-changing consumer tastes, there is the flexible system solution offering nine bag styles in various cases. If speed is required, then the efficient system solution equipped by the vision-guided robot is able to pack up to 500 pillow bags per minute.

Powders
For manufacturers of various powder products, such as baking, infant milk, flour, soya, maizena and non-food powders, there is a choice between the entry-level system solution and a high-hygiene option. Thus, Bosch delivers solution for customers taking the first steps in automation or striving to meet demanding food safety standards.

Snacks
In the customer solutions center, Bosch has also combined its own wide portfolio for snacks with offerings from Kliklok-Woodman, acquired by the company in 2015. On display is Woodman’s legendary reliability system solution, which is specifically configured for the efficient packing of salted snacks, such as potato chips and tortillas, while crackers and cookies producers can benefit from Kliklok’s protective system solution for snacks that require gentler handling.
