Combines Stick Pack and Flow Wrap Machines

Packaging Solution Sigpack RA / HCM

30.04.2012 Bosch Packaging Technology offers a packaging system that integrates a stick pack machine and a flow wrapping machine. A seamless interface between the primary and secondary packaging machines maintains output quality, helps to eliminate downtime, and ensures that the system provides optimal performance. 


The system is suitable for the handling of a wide range of granulates, powders, and pellets, particularly for the pharmaceutical industry, and is designed to provide highly accurate dosing via sophisticated filling augers. The system‘s primary packaging consists of the 10-lane vertical Sigpack RA Stick Pack machine, which provides precise dosing through its servo-controlled filling augers. An in-line weighing system ensures that each processed stick pack contains the precise amount of product and provides feedback to controls that regulate and adjust dosing levels. These technologies help manufacturers to save costs through enhancing accuracy, which is essential for companies working with costly products such as pharmaceutical powders. In comparison with other pack styles, such as sachets, the stick pack allows manufacturers to use 30 percent less packaging material when filling. Additionally it enhances convenience for the end user.

In the system, the filled and sealed stick packs are counted and grouped before being moved through a seamless interface to the secondary packaging unit, the Sigpack HCM horizontal flow wrapper. This machine is capable of wrapping up to 1,000 stick packs per min, and provides manufacturers with flexibility, as the secondary packaging can be easily modified to contain varying numbers of packs. The provider has designed this turnkey packaging system for reliability and robustness, with easy access to working parts for maintenance and cleaning. The system is also compliant with GMP standards, featuring a cantilever design that completely separates process and drive units. Additionally its ergonomic operating height allows for a direct view into the packaging process while its casing provides safety and noise protection for operator safety benefits. Depending on application requirements, rejected product can be collected in lockable containers.
