Bosch cuts through carton process

Process and packaging manufacturer Bosch has released a new cartoning machine, the Cut 1405, an advancement of its Cut 120 machine.

Daniel Sanwald, product manager at Bosch Packaging Technology, says the new horizontal cartoning machine offers higher flexibility as well as the latest servo and safety technology at reduced costs. He says, “As with all our cartoning machines, this new development is based on standard modules that can be flexibly combined, depending on product and packaging type. At the same time, line suitability is granted.”

Bosch says the Cut 1405 offers flexible choice for the appropriate in-feed systems, formats and closure options. The company says the machine can safely and gently handle different carton sizes and packages a wide variety of primary packaging such as bottles, vials, syringes, ampoules, tubes, blisters and trays as well as bags, stick packs and sachets in folding cartons. Inserts to single and combination products such as spoons or outserts can also be integrated into the modular in-feed system.

It has exchangeable modules for tuck-in, glue and combination closures. In addition to pharmaceuticals, the new CUT 1405 has application for packaging cosmetic and food products. Operators can equip the intermittent cartoner with diverse in-feed systems for customised line concepts as well as the packaging of different products and product combinations.

It also features optimised conveyor technology for its folding carton magazine. To prevent cartons from getting caught, the conveyor transports them into the magazine by a lifting motion of the rake. Through the folding carton carrier, the individual cartons maintain their shape as the intermittent transport system moves them through the machine. Bosch says this prevents damage to the product and ensures precise packaging results.

A mechanical gripper arm carries out leaflet in-feed, directly assigned to each product. A shift register checks and follows all products, to ensure that leaflets are only processed further if the outcome of all test results is positive. Sanwald says, “This technology has been successful for over ten years and was further optimised for the CUT 1405. Thanks to excellent accessibility, the folder unit can be conveniently operated from the front and, if required, also swivelled out.”

Bosch adds that all format data is individually stored, enabling easy and quick format changeovers and a safe re-start of the machine. The company adds that optional serialisation, aggregation and tamper-evident modules ensure additional safety.

Sanwald concludes, “The new development is based on the established and proven technology of our CUT 120 horizontal cartoning machine which we have upgraded with the latest state-of-the-art sensor, software, servo and safety technology as well as other features, leading to significant cost reductions for our customers.”
