Rovema manufacturer of packaging machines will be exhibiting at Fachpack 2018 with a sophisticated solution for packing sweets. A typical application for packaging into attractive point of sale display boxes will be shown, each containing 12 scaled lying 25g bags. Rovema as Touchpoint for the confectionary industry.

The packaging line will include a high speed vertical Form, Fill and Seal BVC 250 Compact machine with a final packaging system EC, which combines a box erector, a pick & place unit including grouping and a closing unit on a footprint of just 10 m². This shows a compact and complete system in which all components can be operated via the central machine control.

The compact BVC 250 vertical Form, Fill and Seal machine is equipped with the proven product detection Sense & Seal, which detects products in the sealed area.

Defective bags are discharged directly or lead out of the bagging machine downwards, by up to 240 bags per minute.

The bags are lying with the longitudinal seam upwards (face down), allowing the orientation of the bags to be ready for how they are stored in the tray. Across a conveyor belt the bags are transported into the buffer indexing chain and then in individual single cases, ensuring safe and fast transport under the pick & place unit. There, two complete layers of bags are sucked with a vacuum gripper and positioned in the tray according to a defined scheme.

The motion profiles of the delta kinematics, the speeds of the box erector and the box closing system are calculated by the company's machine control Rovema P@ck-Control. So, the individual units are optimally balanced. The packaging process is characterized by an energy-efficient and wear-reduced process, which ensures a high level of product protection at the same time. The finished pack is provided with a tear-open perforation, which turns the transport packaging into a cargo-friendly, high-end display package at the point of sale. Up to 30 units can be produced per minute.
