Bosch’s latest entry into the horizontal form/fill/seal market, the Pack 102, is a stainless steel version of the ubiquitous Pack 101 entry level horizontal packaging wrapper. Many food manufacturers in the U.S. are grappling with requirements for increased hygiene levels due to FSMA, and the same concept proves essential in Latin American markets. Also, the new 102 design allowed for a lower price point, attractive for developing markets in Latin American.

Horizontal flow wraps
Flow wraps are the means of packaging and protecting a product with a flexible material supplied in roll stock format, providing low costs per pack. Items can be wrapped individually, in groups, on cards or in trays. The packages can be equipped with easy opening and reclosability features. In many market segments flow wraps have been a popular pack style for decades.

Developing markets tend toward small- and mid-sized enterprises
The Pack 102 is an entry-level horizontal flow wrapper that packages products in flow wraps. With an output of up to 150 packages per minute, this machine is the ideal companion for mom and pop shops and medium-sized businesses who are taking their first steps in automation or need a flow wrapper to run small batches. 

A flexible machine for nearly any application
Due to the machine’s extremely wide product size range, the Pack 102 is flexible enough to wrap small and flat to very large and tall products. It is suitable for nearly any industry, ranging from bakery, bars, biscuits, cookies and crackers, fresh produce, medical devices and more. Changing over between different products is straight-forward and in many cases no change parts are required.
