Pack 403 Horizontal Flow Wrapper

Best-in-class, robust and user-focused machine for high-speed applications. Ideal for full automation and system integration. Ready for Industry 4.0 applications. Features HMI 4.0.

 
  • Overview

    As the successor of the Pack 401, the Pack 403 has been significantly upgraded and is packed with powerful improvements to completely redefine machine operation. The machine and the HMI are perfectly aligned for a user-centered experience. Due to a narrow machine design it is ideal for wrapping high-speed application products like bars, bakery

    goods, chocolate, cookies and crackers/biscuits.

    Easier operation

    • Clear instructions showing the splice preparation process directly on the splicing table, significantly increase successful splices
    • Innovative feature to precisely measure and control film tension, resulting in fewer jams and consistent package appearance during production speed changes and during machine starts and stops
    • Manual hand wheel to rotate the cutting head, allowing easier service and maintenance while avoiding contact with the hot sealing surfaces
    • New film former which is significantly smaller and lighter while being completely tool-less, greatly reducing changeover time and improving the ergonomics

    Improved sealing

    • Refined crimper set-up to simplify the process of alignment and pressure adjustment for greater repeatability and accuracy. This was achieved by implementing repeatable locking mechanisms for the finer pitch gap adjustment on the cross sealing station and easy-to-read pressure gauges on the fin seal units.

    Easier format changes

    • Tool-less changeovers for most of the tasks or HMI based adjustments for different products and package configurations
    • Easy-to-read scale for each adjustment point for simple and repeatable product changeovers which can be easily saved in the HMI

    HMI 4.0 and Industry 4.0/IoT

    Bosch’s new HMI 4.0 , next generation of intelligent human-machine interfaces is the gateway to Industry 4.0 (I 4.0)/IoT and supports connectivity to Bosch’s I 4.0 solutions:

    • Operations Assistant: Create and store step-by-step instructions including text, images and videos to simplify daily operations and to minimize training for new and experienced employees
    • Maintenance Assistant: Communicates real-time information and instructions for upcoming maintenance and cleaning jobs
    • Line Dashboard: Provides real-time overview about machine and line status and KPI drilldown
    • Condition Monitoring: Allows for real-time monitoring of machine and line condition
    • Energy Monitoring: Provides real-time energy monitoring and helps to avoid costs caused by energy leakages, predicts failures through threshold setting and minimizes unplanned maintenance.
    • Virtual Remote Support: Supports remote diagnosis, administration, installation of software updates, software and parameter backup as well as review of machine settings.

    And many more.

    White Paper

    Product Distribution Conveyors vs. Robotic Feeding

    This white paper addresses the selection criteria involved in identifying an optimal feeding solution as part of an integrated packaging line. Many manufacturers face this decision when automating their packaging line to achieve higher outputs or lower costs. This paper will discuss the key considerations that should be kept in mind when making a decision and compare Delta robotics and product distribution conveyors. Both technologies have there place in modern packaging lines. The decision to choose one technology over the other often can often be made after evaluating the suitability of each versus the following three characteristics of the packaging line and product:

    1. Pack Configuration

    2. Product Characteristics

    3. Operating Environment

    More information on Product distribution conveyors versus Robotic Feeding solutions you will find in our white paper „Product Distribution Conveyors versus Robotic Feeding“.
