13 October 2011 – Bosch Packaging Technology has launched the WRQ 0400 US ultrasonic cross cutting guillotine device for bar production. The device is particularly suitable for products that are difficult to cut such as bars and cakes. The device uses ultrasonic technology to cut product arriving in mass ropes into individual bars and applies minimum stress and pressure while cutting to preserve product quality. “Due to its high speed micro vibration, the ultrasonic technology results in clean cuts with sharp edges and smooth surfaces for further quality benefits,” explains Frank Jansen, product manager at Bosch Packaging Technology.
The ultrasonic powered knife ensures that the product does not stick to the surface of the blades. Thus, the system is ideal for difficult cutting applications such as sensitive, sticky, laminated or layered products. The machine’s hygienic, open design allows easy access to all parts with product contact. Good accessibility enables quick cleaning after production as well as easy inspection before the start of production. This feature produces aesthetically pleasing products and also results in reduced cleaning times and minimal product waste.

“For sticky and layered bar products, traditional cutting challenges can be quickly overcome with ultrasonic technology,” says Frank Jansen, product manager at Bosch Packaging Technology, and explains, “Our machine combines this innovative cutting technology with the benefits of flexibility, hygiene and ease of use.”
