At interpack 2020, Syntegon Technology, formerly Bosch Packaging Technology, will showcase two innovations, including its “paper-ON-form” upgrade kit for horizontal flow wrapping machines to form cold-sealable barrier paper.

The solution was engineered in the company’s own development center in Beringen, Switzerland, and consists of a patented flow-wrap forming unit and sealing jaws for paper cold-sealing applications. The new kit is already being used on existing lines from international manufacturers for packaging chocolate bars in paper.

Syntegon Technology will also present an extended stroke length for Amplified Heat Sealing (AHS) applications on new horizontal flow wrappers. Syntegon says that this innovation helps to optimize the thermal heat input and enables faster processing of monomaterials.

“Sustainable paper and mono-material packaging is trending. As an innovation leader, we act in a future-oriented, sustainable way. Our upgrade kit allows customers to transition to sustainable packaging materials like cold-sealable paper on their existing horizontal flow wrapping machines – without any restrictions regarding speed or format,” says Christoph Langohr, Project Manager of Sustainability Horizontal Packaging at Syntegon Technology.

These innovations will be on display at interpack 2020 in Düsseldorf, Germany, May 7 to 13, 2020 in hall 6, booth A30-C30.
