Doboy's Stratus SK machine a wrap, won't produce any scrap.

A horizontal wrapper for overwrapping with shrink or polyethylene films, which is so versatile it can pack a wide variety of products across markets as diverse as foods and paper goods, has been unveiled by Doboy, Inc.

This Stratus SK poly and shrink film rotary head wrapper is designed for packaging single piece items, multi-packs, trays, cartons for retail display, food and almost any regular shaped product within the machine size limits. Its advanced handling and sealing technology produces no scrap material.

The standard option of the Doboy wrapper features a one up rotary end seal unit, which is capable of an output of up to 90 packages per minute. This can be increased to 120 packages per minute with the two up version. For use as end seal, the Stratus SK provides continuous bead seal and cutoff. When used for longitudinal seal it can lap seal with static seal, bead seal or provide a combination of the two.

The Stratus SK comes with several other standard features. These include an infeed conveyer with snap-in pushers, one film spindle and power feed roll, a vacuum conveyer film feed and wiring style former.

Bosch Packaging Technology Team Will Make Big Stand at Interpack

The first joint appearance in Europe of the newly formed Bosch Packaging Technology group will take place during the Interpack Exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany, April 21-27.

Bosch Packaging Technology and the former SIG Pack Division, which merged last July 1, have already teamed up at a major show. "We exhibited together in November at Pack Expo in Chicago, where our equipment and integrated packaging systems were on display," said Bert Jan Hardenbol, general director of the Robert Bosch Verpakkingsmachines BV unit in Holland.

The union between Bosch and Sigpack created an organization employing 4,200 people with combined annual sales of 600 million euros.

Friedbert Klefenz, president of Bosch Packaging Technology, stated: "The acquisition of Sigpack is strategic, enabling us to round out our offerings ... Our expertise as a worldwide system supplier over the entire value-added chain has been significantly enhanced. In the future, our business partners will be able to obtain all of their line components from a single source, and 'one-stop-shopping' in the packaging sector will be a reality."

Bosch is well known in the frozen food industry for its vertical form, fill and seal machines. Doboy, which specializes in automatic wrapping and handling machines, is among Sigpack's high-profile brand names.
