Visitors to the IBIE 2022 Baking Expo in Las Vegas can gain an overview on how bakery products are packed safely and sustainably at the Syntegon booth from September 18-21. With the Kliklok ACE carton erector, the Pack 202 horizontal form, fill and seal machine and the CBS-D band sealer, the machine experts present three machines that support bakery manufacturers in processing a wide range of different bakery products, such as cookies, cakes, donuts or bars, in a sustainable way.
“Visitors to the IBIE trade show will get an impression of the brands that come together as Syntegon: Doboy, Elematic, Kliklok, Osgood, Sigpack and Woodman. With our versatile portfolio, we offer solutions from standalone machines to complete packaging systems,” says Dave Wood, Product Sales Manager at Syntegon.
Syntegon values continuous improvement and addresses future-oriented topics such as sustainability in the bakery sector: Whether it is reducing material consumption, switching to alternative materials or modifying sealing processes – the experts facilitate the way towards more eco-friendly packaging.
Sustainability endeavours not only protect the environment, but also the products. At the IBIE booth, Syntegon showcases three technologies that combine sustainability with product protection for sensitive foods. Visitors can take a closer look at the Kliklok ACE carton erector that uses the innovative lock-style technology to fold glue-free paper trays for cookies – and enables manufacturers to replace plastic with recyclable paper. Afterwards, the cookie trays are fed into the horizontal flow wrapper Pack 202 that packages them in pillow pouches made from mono-material films. Alternatively, manufacturers can opt for paper flow wraps by integrating the “paper-ON-form” retrofit kit into their existing form, fill and seal machines.
When it comes to sustainability, not only do alternative materials play an important role, but also new sealing technologies are crucial to making food packaging more environmentally friendly. At IBIE, Syntegon demonstrates how the CBS-D band sealer for vertical and horizontal formats creates tighter seals and thus effectively reduces material consumption. It also features PTFE-coated fiberglass sealing bands that ensure high-quality sealing and minimize machine wear and maintenance.
The processing and packaging experts continuously rethink packaging and focus on Research and Development to make bakery production processes more sustainable. Besides technologies that reduce the amount of conventional plastic packaging, solutions such as the recently launched DCS discharge station for cookies, crackers and biscuits, also avoid product waste: thanks to its gentle handling using belt slides, manufacturers can prevent product breakage – and thus the waste of valuable resources.
