 Easy in-field upgrade to corner sealing
 Low machine height enables higher production speed and increases Overall
    Efficiency Equipment (OEE)
 Economic entry model with multiple in-field upgrade options

The machine’s low height and the numerous in-field upgrade options make the new SVI
vertical bagger series from Bosch Packaging Technology ideal for a wide range of food
and non-food applications. This combination allows the intermittent SVI machines to
produce bags with corner seal and doy style bags with optional zippers. For corner
sealing, the manufacturer can upgrade the machine with an additional module. The
production of a doy style bag can be easily performed by turning the machine cross seal
jaws to a 90 degrees position. Whenever the package style is changed, there is no need to
adapt the machine height or dosing platform This efficient changeover reduces machine
downtime during format change and increases the overall performance of the equipment.

For the production of several standard bag styles the operator simply changes the forming
set. This flexibility allows manufacturers to produce a high variety of packaging styles for
point-of-sale diversity with a very short time to market. The SVI series is designed to
package an unlimited range of food and non-food products, such as powders, bakery and
confectionery items, tea, coffee, fresh pasta, as well as pet food and non-food products
such as detergents.

The SVI series consists of two machines for packaging different format ranges: the SVI
4020 packages bag sizes with a maximum 400 mm width, while the SVI 2620 forms a bag
with a maximum 260 mm width. The machines have an output ranging from 10 to 120
bags per minute.

“The uniqueness of the SVI series is its combination of low machine height, and bag
format flexibility due to its versatile upgrade capabilities,” says Michael Gensheimer,
Product Manager Vertical at Bosch Packaging Technology. “The series is the most cost-
effective and competitive solution for customers looking to increase their production
efficiency and differentiate their products at point-of-sale with a diverse choice of bag
shapes and styles.”

The flexible SVI series offers heatsealing and polysealing options, with freely adjustable
sealing temperatures according to product specification. The various up- and downstream
interfaces are part of Bosch’s modular machine design concept (Module ++), which
allows the easy integration with other packaging machine modules into an efficient
packaging line.
