Bosch Packaging Technology is launching its upgraded WRF 600 Flex roller former for multilayer bars which enables customers to produce products such as those consisting of nougat topped with a layer of caramel, on the same production process.
The machine is designed to minimize or eliminate the trim when processing masses for cereal, candy, protein and fruit bars and can handle width changes without production stoppages.
The WRF 600 Flex gently forms the mass slab without applying any pressure, preventing product breakage. The working width ranges between 400 and 1500 millimeters. As a standard feature, the slab thickness can be continuously adjusted between 5 and 30 millimeters.
“Today’s manufacturers need technologies that can efficiently handle delicate products and decrease waste more than ever,” said Frank Jansen, product manager, Bosch Packaging Technology.
“The WRF 600 Flex is well positioned to meet these demands thanks to its flexibility and operator-friendly features.”
In addition to its bar processing technology, Bosch also provides primary and secondary packaging machinery for bars. Standardized interfaces allow for the balanced speed of all line components to eliminate bottlenecks, minimize downtime and optimize production flow, facilitating high Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE).
