Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box launches innovative new triple head filling machine
Smurfit Kappa has launched a new high speed, triple head, automatic filling machine. The new machine is capable of filling up to 45 3L Bag-in-Box containers per minute on its three filling valves.
Designed for industrial plants, and optimised for efficiency and speed, the machine is the latest innovation in the BIB 700 range and has an easy to use touch screen and ergonomic design.
Rigorous testing revealed the best Total Package Oxygen values after filling with separate nitrogen and vacuum systems, which is an important factor for the improved shelf-life Bag-in-Box products offer, and a significant advantage for both customers and end users
Florent Neveu, BIB equipment manager at Smurfit Kappa Bag-in-Box, explained: ‘During the design and development of the machine, the focus was on high output rates, precision, ease of use and maximum hygiene.
‘These advantages, combined with longer shelf life and high performance, allow our customers to offer consumers the very best Bag-in-Box solutions.’
The BIB 700 Triple Head includes supply, separation of bags, opening, vacuuming, filling, capping, packing and release.
