Flexible Packaging System for Chocolate Products

Different Packaging styles - Large Product Variety - One Packaging System

A moulding line installed at the customer's site produces a wide variety of products, from 100 g bars to small chocolates and pyramid-shaped products. The flexibility of the processing line was the challenge for the packaging system to be installed. All products should be packaged under high performance with a packaging system directly connected to the process equipment.

Flexible Packaging System

Theegarten-Pactec designed a tailor-made packaging system that meets the flexibility of the upstream process line. A series of conveyor stages directly connected to the process line take over the product flow and transfer it to the packaging machines. The flexibility of the system is characterized by the possibility of diverting the product flow to the different types of packaging machines as required. If the chocolate products are to be packed in flow packs, these are fed to the FPC5 packaging machine. The changeover of the processing line to small chocolate pralines also involves the redirection of the product flow to the MCC packaging machines for double twist or top twist wrapping. This configuration of the packaging system is fully automatic by recipe selection and without mechanical interventions within the individual belt stages.

The packaging machines themselves also provide customers with a high degree of flexibility. For example, the MCC can be converted to different wrapping types and product dimensions. In this case, the customer is using this flexibility to package products in double twist wrap and top twist on the MCCs. And the FPC5 form fill and seal machine enables quick changeover to different product dimensions.
