Gulfood Manufacturing 2019

Theegarten-Pactec presents flexible, high-performance packaging machine

When it comes to packaging machines, flexibility is more than just a buzzword. And Theegarten-Pactec will be clearly demonstrating this at the Gulfood Manufacturing food & beverage processing & packaging show. At booth B2-4 in Hall 2, visitors will have an opportunity to experience a flexible, high-performance packaging machine that allows confectionery producers to switch between folding types within only two hours, and between wrapping styles and product formats simultaneously within only five hours. The trade fair will be held between October 29 and 31 at the Dubai World Trade Center.

Today, wrapping styles and products are changing more quickly than ever in the confectionery and snack sector. To meet all these requirements, the machines have to be highly flexible. Theegarten-Pactec’s MCH offers manufacturers both high performance and the flexibility to respond quickly to market demands with only one packaging machine. This saves customers of the Dresden-based packaging specialist investing in several machines. It was with this in mind that the management of Mzuri Sweets in Kenia, impressed with the German company’s expertise, ordered their new packaging machine from Theegarten-Pactec. Mzuri’s product portfolio, including ball gums, hard candies and bubble gums, calls for a packaging machine in the high-output area which allows the implementation of several changeovers every day. The experts at Theegarten-Pactec customized the machine to Mzuri Sweets’ specific requirements – a specialty of the German packaging machine manufacturer. After the show, the exhibition machine will be delivered directly to Kenia.

Gentle treatment of delicate sweets

The MCH’s continuous operating principle is particularly gentle on the products, as is the large diameter of the individualization plate, because this reduces the centrifugal forces which take effect on the product. The servo-driven wrapping material draw-off allows for exact draw-off lengths while ensuring economical use of wrapping material thanks to the “no product – no wrapping material” function. The stepless adjustment of the rotary gripper oscillation allows for different wrapping materials to be processed. The insertion angle is variably adjustable (up to 2.1 rotations). At the outlet, spliced products are automatically identified and screened out.

A machine with many advantages

The changeover time between the different folding types and/or product formats is between two and five hours. Innovation driver Theegarten-Pactec thus offers the advantage of short downtimes combined with high flexibility. In addition to all these machine-related advantages, there is another key benefit: the MCH’s fully automatic operation means that a single operator can take care of several machines. Ultimately, the investment in a packaging machine made by the Dresden family business pays off several times over: it is flexible, high-performance, gentle on the product and very economical.

“The Gulfood Manufacturing trade fair is an extremely important international event for Theegarten-Pactec. It represents a unique opportunity for us to meet up with our customers face to face and touch base with potential new customers from the Middle East, Africa and Asia regions,” says Markus Rustler, CEO and President of Theegarten-Pactec. The 2019 show will be the sixth time the German packaging machine company Theegarten-Pactec is represented as an exhibitor at the leading trade fair. The specialist in high-performance, flexible packaging machines is presenting its MCH as one of the company’s most successful high-performance packaging machines at its 70-square-meter booth.
