Rovema GmbH, a designer and provider of packaging machinery for the food industry, received a prestigious German Packaging Award for “Best Machine of 2014” for its BVC Series VFFS (Vertical Form-Fill-Seal) Bagging Machine equipped with the company’s innovative “Premium-Seal” system. For the first time, Premium-Seal offers the option to pre-heat and then compress multilayered seal seam packing material for optimum tightness. Developed by Rovema specifically for the BVC Series, the versatile, programmable and sensitive sealing technology can be used for other applications as well.
The dual-axis servo packaging machine can produce up to 260 bags per minute, and is equipped with real-time control technology that is fully programmable and highly user-friendly. The BVC also is highly flexible in terms of the sizes and styles of bags it can produce, which include pillow, flat-bottom, Stabilo (quad-seal), stand-ups, zipper recloseable and more. It offers energy efficiency as well as flexibility – especially in its wide range of compatible packaging material, high process reliability and minimization of downtimes in the high power range.
In addition, the BVC Series incorporates a patented “Sense and Seal” quality control solution that determines, for example, if product is present in the cross seal area and, if so, discharges the bag without the application of sealing pressure. The intelligent system thus prevents any excess product from being accidentally sealed in the seal area which, in addition to immediate product defects, could also decrease sealing tool efficiency and life expectancy. In addition to the automatic bag discharge of defective packages, this reduction in down-times for jam clearance and reduced wear and tear on cutting blades help ensure high efficiency and long, uninterrupted machine runs.
A leading food industry machinery supplier, Rovema GmbH manufactures and supplies equipment for dosing, vertical form-fill-seal pouching, cartoning, and final packaging operations, primarily for the bakery, confectionary, coffee, dry powder, snack and frozen food sectors.
The annual award from the Institute of German Packaging is coveted in Europe, drawing scores of entries amounting to the best and most innovative developments from the packaging sector. Under the patronage of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy, an independent panel of experts from industry, research, teaching and trade press select winners using five criteria: functionality; innovation; consumer impact; economic viability; and environmental aspects.
