New integrated solution for packaging in flat bottom bags with clip

Rovema manufacturer of packaging machines, headquartered in Fernwald near Giessen, will be presenting a compact edge sealed packaging system for flat bottom bags with clip and the BVK vertical form-, fill and seal machine for standard bag styles at Fachpack 2016. High-grade confectionery and candies, premium pasta and selected pulses are increasingly packaged in flat bottom bags with a clip for reclosing. Typically the clip applicator is connected to the vertical bagger as a separate component, whereby the set performance is considerably limited.

We will also be exhibiting our SBS 250 packaging system including a vertical BVC continuously working form-, fill and seal machine and the integrated clip applicator. The operation of both components is done by the machine control Rovema P@ckControl. The filled bags are transferred by cycle chain, which holds the bags and transfers them safely to the closing clipper. Due to the direct infeed, a set performance of up to 80 bags/minute is possible, depending on bag style and weight. The vertical form-, fill and seal machine as well as the clip aggregate are very accessible so that size changes, cleaning and maintenance work can be shortened tremendously.

The packaging system allows the handling of nearly all mono and laminated films of various thicknesses and is also prepared for different sealing procedures such as heat sealing and impulse welding. The SBS packaging system offers high flexibility in the choice of film material as well as bag style. As the clipper is height adjustable, it is also possible to produce long fin seals, which cannot be produced with clippers customary in the market.

Needing a space requirement of approx. 9 m² the SBS packaging system with integrated clipper is a compact solution for attractive packaging styles with clip closure.

 BVK 260 Vertical form fill-, and seal machine – ideal for standard bag styles

Rovema will also be presenting the BVK 260 vertical continuous form-, fill and seal machine for standard bag styles like pillow bags and flat bottom bags. At a competitive price the machine offers extremely high production safety by proven and robust machine technology. The vacuum supported film draw down allows the processing of various mono and laminated films. The electro components are integrated in the machine housing by an extricable mounting plate. This allows good accessibility for electrical and pneumatic maintenance works to be carried out and the space requirement of the machine is reduced. With a set performance of up to 120 bag/min. and a format size range of 60 mm up to 260 mm the BVK 260 is the ideal vertical form-, fill- and seal machine for all standard bag styles used in the market.

As well as celebrating this milestone, Rovema will be demonstrating a bag-in-box Cartoning line on its stand at the PPMA Total Show. The line will consist of Rovema’s latest high-speed BVC VFFS machine feeding into a horizontal CMH-I cartoner. The line is perfect for rice, pasta, baby food or pet food amongst others. Although Rovema have been building high quality cartoning machines for decades this will be the first time Rovema has shown one at the PPMA show. They hope it will give visitors the opportunity to explore more of the extensive range of packaging machines now in their portfolio. Alongside this we will also be presenting information on their comprehensive range of fully flexible case packers. The range includes wrap around, high speed tray and lid, American case, drop packers and the new Flexpicker picker cell. Ease of use, reliability, flexibility and the obvious German build quality are a few of the factors that have seen this sector of Rovema’s portfolio see considerable growth over recent years.
