Theegarten-Pactec forms special R & D team specifically for horizontal flowpack systems
Theegarten-Pactec, manufacturer of machines for small-pieced confectionery items, reports an increasing interest in the program for horizontal flowpack machines, and in response, a special team will be formed in the Research and Development Department for flowpack systems.
Overall, the company's Research and Development department currently employs 75 members of staff. At Theegarten-Pactec the topic of Research and Development has traditionally taken a very high priority. Extending beyond work for concrete customer requirements, regular projects are conducted in cooperation with the Technical University of Dresden.
"We are committed to remaining in the forefield of the competition for the best ideas. And to achieve this, copying will not suffice. You must also invent new things - and that is the daily routine of our engineers", reports the head of the Development & Construction department, Bodo Förster.
From the viewpoint of confectionery producers, but also for other food and non-food applications, flowpack packaging offers, among other things, a high degree of security with its tamper-proofness. The welded packaging minimizes the ingression of dampness and odors.
