Unrivalled performance: EK4 still absolute leader for wrapping boiled sweets

Theegarten-Pactec at the Gulfood Manufacturing 2017 in Dubai

At the Gulfood Manufacturing 2017 in Dubai the German packaging machinery specialist Theegarten-Pactec will show the EK4 from their wide product range of highly efficient packaging machines. This high performance packaging machine wraps up to 2,300 boiled sweets in double twist style per minute, a peak value which is still unmatched today. The company offers packaging machines and complete packaging lines with a broad performance spectrum for a variety of different wrapping styles.

The EK4 combines all the features that stand for high availability and top performance. The continuous operating principle is particularly gentle on the products, as is the large diameter of the individualisation plate, because this reduces the centrifugal forces which take effect on the product. The servo-driven wrapping material draw-off allows for exact draw-off lengths and minimises material consumption. Paper cutting blade and roller holder are servo-driven. The stepless adjustment of the rotary gripper oscillation allows for different wrapping materials to be processed. The insertion angle is variably adjustable (up to 2.1 rotations). For different wrapping materials rotary grippers are available in the matching format.

Inside the multi-stage vibration delivery feed, broken products, twin products, and product fragments are screened out. The product hopper with permanent filling level monitoring serves to regulate the machine speed and provides an automatic product requirement signal for the pre-process. At the outlet, spliced products are automatically identified and screened out, and the “no product – no wrapping material” function ensures an economical use of wrapping material. Thanks to the simple operating procedure and the fully automatic working mode, including automatic roll change, one person can operate several machines.

“As we know from experience the Gulfood Manufacturing trade fair is a very important event for Theegarten-Pactec. There we meet our customers with whom we have a trusting business relationship for many years and we meet potential new customers from this region but also from India and Pakistan. The export share of our machines is almost 90 percent and we are glad to use the possibility to present the EK4, one of our top high performance packaging machines”, says Markus Rustler, CEO and President of Theegarten-Pactec.

For the seventh time German packaging machine company Theegarten-Pactec GmbH & Co. KG is represented at the leading trade fair for the Middle East, Africa and Asia region as an exhibitor. On 60 square meters, the specialist for high performance and flexible packaging machines is presenting its EK4 machine. After the trade fair the showcased machine will be delivered to Al-Seedawi Sweets Factory Co., a confectionery manufacturer from Kuwait.
