Bosch Packaging Technology has been rewarded with the German Packaging Award (Deutscher Verpackungspreis) in the ‘packaging machines’ category. Granted by the German Packaging Institute (Deutsches Verpackungsinstitut), the award recognizes the company’s innovative two-in-one biscuit packaging system, first presented at Interpack 2014 in Duesseldorf earlier this year.

The two-in-one packaging system allows food manufacturers to switch from slug to pile packs and vice versa in less than three minutes. Additionally, product count changes can be completed quicker now than with conventional slug or pile packaging machines. Thanks to this flexibility, manufacturers are able to run special promotions with short notice and react quickly to market changes, for example for seasonal or promotional campaigns. What is more, the two-in-one system presently occupies a smaller production area than two separate conventional machines for both packaging types.

The whole line is designed to be a single, Seamless System, from product discharge through to primary and secondary packaging. The speed of all components is balanced to optimize production flow and eliminate bottlenecks. The packaging line therefore contributes significantly to increasing overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).

The German Packaging Award are presented annually by the German Packaging Institute in five different categories. To be nominated, a machine or technology must improve quality, profitability and efficiency in the packaging process. All winners of the German Packaging Award are entitled to take part in the WorldStar international competition, a prize awarded by the World Packaging Organization since 1970.
