Theegarten to unveil new packaging machine
Theegarten-Pactec will unveil its CFW-D packaging machine for moulded or coated chocolate products, which has an output of up to 1,400 products per minute, at Interpack.
The CFW-D is suitable for fold wrapping napolitains or small pralines with or without sleeves. Thanks to the machine’s twin-lane design, up to 1,400 products can be produced per minute. Product tolerances are compensated through the use of spring retainer jaws on the packing head – a feature which is particularly important for coated confectionery products so as to wrap them without causing damage.
In addition, sensors detect the rate of delivery to minimise backlogs and set an optimum machine speed depending on the products being fed.
The company will also present its U1-D-CW in combination with an F3 stick packer for the first time at Interpack. The space-saving system packs products such as chewing gum in side fold, bottom fold or envelope fold at up to 2,000 products per minute, and then overwraps them in multipacks.
Intermittent operation allows a compact design with high performance, Theegarten says. Output per minute has been doubled compared with the U1/F1, with virtually the same space requirement, operating personnel and energy consumption.
Other machines on show will include CMW2 with an extended range of applications, MCC and MCH, as well as HCW4/FPC5 with an output of up to 1,500 products per minute.
Theegarten-Pactec will be exhibiting in hall 4, stand A21, at Interpack, which takes place from 4-10 May in Dusseldorf, Germany.
