Theegarten-Pactec confirms equipment showcase for Gulfood Manufacturing

Packaging specialist Theegarten-Pactec has confirmed it will be showcasing a selection of its latest equipment series at this year’s  Gulfood Manufacturing event.

The German business based in Dresden, will be exhibiting at booth B2-4 in Hall 2, and will offer visitors the chance to experience its present MCH machine . This has been designed to be flexible, high-performance, and allowing confectionery producers to switch between folding types within two hours, and between wrapping styles and product formats simultaneously within five hours.

As the company revealed, it is this level of adaptability which is now regarded as crucial by manufacturers, and the company noted that the flexibility of this series had saved its customers  investing in several different machines.

It was with this in mind that the management of Mzuri Sweets in Kenya, impressed with the German company’s expertise, ordered their new packaging machine from Theegarten-Pactec. Mzuri’s product portfolio, including ball gums, hard candies and bubble gums, calls for a packaging machine in the high-output area which allows the implementation of several changeovers every day. The experts at Theegarten-Pactec customised the machine to Mzuri Sweets’ specific requirements – a specialty of the German packaging machine manufacturer. After the show, the exhibition machine (featured below) will be delivered directly to Kenya.

The MCH’s continuous operating principle has been developed to be particularly gentle on the products, as is the large diameter of the individualisation plate, because this reduces the centrifugal forces which take effect on the product. The servo-driven wrapping material draw-off allows for exact draw-off lengths while ensuring economical use of wrapping material thanks to the “no product – no wrapping material” function. The stepless adjustment of the rotary gripper oscillation allows for different wrapping materials to be processed. The insertion angle is variably adjustable (up to 2.1 rotations). At the outlet, spliced products are automatically identified and screened out.

The changeover time between the different folding types and/or product formats is between two and five hours. Innovation driver Theegarten-Pactec thus offers the advantage of short downtimes combined with high flexibility. In addition to all these machine-related advantages, there is another key benefit: the MCH’s fully automatic operation means that a single operator can take care of several machines. Ultimately, the investment in a packaging machine made by the Dresden family business pays off several times over: it is flexible, high-performance, gentle on the product and very economical.

“The Gulfood Manufacturing trade fair is an extremely important international event for Theegarten-Pactec. It represents a unique opportunity for us to meet up with our customers face to face and touch base with potential new customers from the Middle East, Africa and Asia regions,” says Markus Rustler, CEO and President of Theegarten-Pactec (pictured at last year’s Gulfood).

“The 2019 show will be the sixth time the German packaging machine company Theegarten-Pactec is represented as an exhibitor at the leading trade fair. The specialist in high-performance, flexible packaging machines is presenting its MCH as one of the company’s most successful high-performance packaging machines at its 70-square-metre booth.
