The key demands of the international production market can be summed up as optimum product protection and sophisticated presentation. The market for chewing gum sticks, in particular, is experiencing a boom on the strength of modern carton packs. Time for a new and innovative generation of modern high performance machines for stick packaging to ensure economic, efficient, and hygienic packing of the required production volumes. At high speeds, the integration of the interfaces to the upstream and downstream process and packing stages is crucial. Gum information center gic loeschpack will be presenting a wideranging display on all aspects of the subject of chewing gum at interpack 2011.the topics listed below will be explored with reference to the gw05 exhibit, complemented by technical animations, videos, and a wide range of fascinating product samples. &bull automation solutions for feeding chewing gum slabs into high performance packing machines&bull inline production cut wrap with new conceptual approaches the close linking of processing and packing is supported by collaboration with a partner company&bull the new gw05 high performance machine as the heart of modern chewing packaging lines the machine can be equipped with a range of addon modules for different tasks&bull innovative chewing gum packaging via production line concepts with components for wrapping, boxing and sealing multipacks in cellophane gw05 &ndash newly developed high performance fold wrapping machine for chewing gum sticks. For the first time at interpack 2011, a fold wrapping machine for chewing gum sticks which operates at maximum speed of 3,000 sticks per minute will be shown, the gw05. Thus begins a new era of technology for packing sticks. In order to achieve this, a new machine concept on the basis of the gw04 high performance machine was developed and enhanced with new components. The basic prerequisite for maximum performance is a continuously operating machine. The version for processing chewing gum slabs features zeroaccumulation feeding with a special servodriven double feeder transport. Cutting of the individual sticks then takes place via a newly developed separating device. Wrapping material infeed, stick conveyance and the wrapping drum are based on the principle of the gw04 &ndash but with many improvements. Particular account was taken of the aspects of hygiene, ergonomics and maintenance.
as a result, the gw05 is the heart of high performance packing systems. Configurable with a series of addon modules for processing chewing gum slabs, inline production, and for different types of further packaging. In combination, for example, with the lrmduo and, where required, a downstream wkm cartoning machine, it forms a complete packaging line with top performance and efficiency. 3.2 new lrm duo twin station fold wrapping machine for chewing gum and chocolate multipacks packing prepacked chewing gum sticks, tabgum or small chocolate articles such as napolitains or bars in cardboard box multipacks is the subject of the newly developed lrmduo twin station high performance fold wrapping machine.
The target applications of the new lrmduo machine platform therefore lie in the smaller size ranges with regard to multipacks. The triggers for the development of this highly flexibleuse machine are the requirements involved in compact modular construction, high hygiene standards, top performance, and multistage packaging. The lrmduo machine platform is designed in such a way that it can be fitted with applicationspecific feeder and grouping modules of many different types.at the first station, the content is packed in a carton using the wraparound method. A wide range of pack styles can be implemented here.
The outer wrap is then applied with conventional film at the second station.a version with hermetic sealing is available. In addition to the existing main fold wrapping machines for both chocolate and chewing gum, loeschpack offers matching supplementary equipment at high speeds of up to 250 packsmin for subsequent boxing and cellophaning with this product development. For example, in combination with the gw05 for chewing gum sticks, the gw04 for tabgum, or the lrm series for small chocolate articles.
At interpack, the lrmduo will be on display together with the upstream lrm2g fold wrapping machine for small prepacked 6.5 g napolitains. The pack formation consists of 2 x 4 8 napolitains per carton multipack. A complex feeder system enables grouping and stacking of the napolitains, which are collected on a ushaped carton in the form of a boat and transported to the first station. A carton band wrap is applied to the boat, and the complete carton pack is vacuumpacked in cellophane full wrap at the second station.
New lrm2gs double track high performance fold wrapping machine for chocolate napolitains and bars high performance is also frequently required for the wide range of smaller chocolate articles such as bars, mini bars, and napolitains to ensure efficient production and sale. For the first time at interpack, loeschpack is presenting a double track high performance fold wrapping machine, the lrm2gs. Processing up to 1,000 packsmin, the new machine crowns the performance of the successful lrm series it completes. Articles can be packed in envelope, cube or brush fold wraps.
a seal on the underside can be glued or sealed, and a very wide range of wrapping materials from the reel can be processed.the latest design in terms of hygiene and ergonomics goes without saying. Equipment features such as zeroaccumulation product conveyance, servodriven packing material feeder, automatic roll changes and more are implemented. The machine shown packs poured chocolate napolitains in a range of variants with nut fragments or solid. The articles are packed in full wrap as an envelope wrap with an adhesive seal on the underside. The packaging material is printed in sections. The lrm2gs is shown together with the lrmduo, although this machine combination is just part of a full system. The latter consists of the following components &bull automatic product infeed with 2axis robots&bull intermediate store for the separation of processing and packing&bull 2 lrm high performance coiling machines&bull lrmduo twin station fold wrapping machine for multipacks this configuration provides an impressive demonstration of loeschpack&rsquos line competence. New roll invent &ndash the reinvention of roll wrapping with rpms loeschpack is presenting a new generation in the roll wrapping of round pieces of chocolate and tabletshaped products at interpack 2011.
This is a completely new, modular, and ultramodern roll packing system with productspecific feeding systems and the rpms core machine. Tightly sealed roll packs, twice the performance, new and gentle product handling &ndash a true innovation. For round pieces of chocolate, up to 300 rolls per minute can be processed, for tabletshaped sweets up to 400 rollsmin. Productspecific feeder systems optimised product feeder systems are developed for every product. With round chocolate products, handling of the chocolate as bulk material very often causes product damage or marking. The picking of articles by robot directly from the belt or from plates and placement on the feeder transport enables extremely gentle product handling. The overall concept results in the consistent reduction of touch points productmachine and the advantages this brings. In addition, the articles are ordered and positioned in the same direction with this method. The position in a uniform direction gives a highquality appearance.
There is no variation in the length of packs, the lateral folds are particularly tight and attractive. For hard compressed tablets or sugarcoated products, a feed hopper, a vibratory feeder, or a belt system with feeder channels are used. Rpms high performance roll wrapping machine the rpms is particularly wellsuited to wrapping rolled products in one or two packaging materials in a single operation.all the required folds are carried out on a wrapping head.depending on the equipment, different types of fold wraps can be implemented. These include the traditional covering fold with five end folds as well as a hermeticallysealed pack with fin seals. Glue heat and cold sealing systems are used to seal the longitudinal seam.
the rpms core machine will be on display at interpack. The design takes account of the special requirements in packing pieces of chocolate.the product infeed is designed as a bar conveyor with two servo drives, representing an optimum equipment setup for feeding with the use of robots.the packing is carried out using cold sealable packing material with fin seals and is thus hermetically sealed.
New ltmduo fold wrapping machine for chocolate bars &ndash fourth generation loeschpack wants to make the best even better the successful machine design for twostage packing of chocolate bars meets the current requirements of the market with many innovative optimisations. In particular, the rising demands for optimum hygiene and sustainability, simplest operation and format changeover, high flexibility, high output and oee overall equipment efficiency, and a compact, spacesaving machine design have been implemented.
