At interpack 2014, Theegarten-Pactec will be showcasing a new unit that groups individual products for secondary packaging and completes any product formation. Defective products are rejected without affecting the grouping operation. The grouping unit buffers any empty cycles until the right number of products for transferring to the secondary wrapping machine has been reached.

The company developed this technology for the new generation of the HCW4/FPC5 packaging machine, which is premiering at the trade fair. Theegarten-Pactec has a total of twelve exhibits at its booth, A21 in hall 4. Visitors to the stand can experience the latest developments in the machine range for the wrapping of small-pieced confectionery items.

This year, Theegarten-Pactec is presenting the FPC5 horizontal flowpack machine, thereby bringing to bear one of the HCW4’s new features, which enables it to be linked up with continuous-operation wrapping machines such as the FPC5.

Normally, entire product formations have to be rejected if a single product is found to be defective when it reaches the secondary packaging machine interface, resulting in the loss of perfectly good products. For manufacturers, the HCW4/FPC5 combination means they no longer need to write off any rejects during grouping. Any individual products that are not wrapped or spliced will already have been rejected by the HCW4 during full machine operation.

Theegarten-Pactec is also bringing its CWM2 wrapping machine for chocolate products to interpack. Compared with the previous model, this one provides a much higher level of user accessibility.

At interpack, Theegarten-Pactec and its partner, LoeschPack, will again be demonstrating their expertise as system suppliers for confectionery wrapping. The FPC5/280 horizontal flowpack machine from Theegarten-Pactec wraps chocolate bars in flow packs before transferring the products to an LTM-K from LoeschPack, which adds secondary packaging in the form of individual cardboard boxes.
