Theegarten-Pactec and WDS set for iba showcase

Theegarten-Pactec packaging machinery specialist will be showcasing its latest developments alongside fellow German firm, Winkler and Dünnebier (WDS), at this year’s much-anticipated iba event, reports Neill Barston.

The bakery and confectionery showcase, which takes place in Munich between 22-26 October, will see well over 1,300 companies from around the world exhibit, as it returns after five-year pandemic-enforced break.

Theegarten has developed tailor-made packaging machines for small-sized confectionery and snacks, used by manufacturers around the globe. The  business offers a selection of more than twenty folding types and covers all performance ranges from low-speed (up to 500 pieces per minute) to 2,300 pieces per minute with its continuous high-performance machines.

The company’s president and CEO, Markus Rustler was among businesses that spoke to Confectionery Production at this year’s recent Interpack event – see our exclusive video interview here.

Notably, the high-performance machines from the Dresden-based packaging specialist are characterised by their ease of use and high degree of flexibility. The packaging systems from Theegarten-Pactec can easily be converted to other product formats or folding types. As a result, changes in the product format and folding type can be effected without significant downtime.

As a driver of innovation, Theegarten-Pactec works with state-of-the-art technologies to continuously develop its packaging systems. The latest packaging machines for snacks include e.g. the FPC5, which packages products in flow packs. Within the packaging process, paperbased packaging materials can be used, but also modern recyclable mono films. TheegartenPactec also supplies the BLM cartoner, which is designed for direct connection to the flow wrapping machine.

With its modular design, the BLM can also reportedly process different product sizes, carton dimensions and product configurations at a range of different speeds. A single machine can handle a wide range of product configurations inside the cartons, be it singlerow, multi-row, multi-layer and even upright pack formations. At iba 2023 (22 to 26 October) in Munich Theegarten-Pactec will be present at the joint booth of its longstanding partner Winkler and Dünnebier Süßwarenmaschinen GmbH, a manufacturer of confectionery machines. Both companies have been working together for decades and have completed a large number of joint projects. As system suppliers, Theegarten-Pactec and Winkler and Dünnebier construct complete solutions for snack and confectionery producers upon request, from the manufacturing of the product to primary and secondary packag
