Frischli invests in SIG Combibloc technology.

Dairy company frischli has opted for filling technology from SIG Combibloc. With the installation of two CFA 512 filling machines, including a Food Option filling machine, frischli is putting things in place to enable it to launch a wide range of innovative products in aseptic carton packs from SIG Combibloc. frischli is one of the biggest dairies in Germany, and internationally markets its dairy products and foods for retail sale, food service and industry.

Dr. Timo Winkelmann, General Manager, frischli: "By choosing filling technology from SIG Combibloc, we have created a strong basis to enable us to respond flexibly and efficiently to shifts in the market, which are dictated primarily by the requirements of our food industry customers and the buying public. With the two filling machines from SIG Combibloc, we are now highly flexible for product range, print version or design and for volumes".

With the CFA 512 filling machines, a change of sleeve with different finish or design can be implemented without interrupting production flow and with no wastage at all. All that has to be done is to switch the carton sleeves in the filling machine hopper. This flexibility makes it possible to fill a product with a range of different designs, ie for different brands, different languages, or different regions.

High performance and low overall system costs are the outstanding features of the high-speed filling machines from SIG Combibloc. With the CFA 512 filling machines that are now in operation at frischli, up to 12,000 CombiblocStandard carton packs can be aseptically filled per hour. This speed is combined with an unrivalled low wastage rate and one-of-a-kind flexibility in formats, volumes, decor and products. Their robust, well-engineered construction ensures the machines will continue to run for many years.

One of the filling machines is a Food Option filling machine. It is based on SIG Combibloc's standard filling technology, but is additionally designed to fill a whole range of further pasty and highly viscous food products, and products containing particulates. For this purpose--before delivery to the customer--the machine is adapted so that products with up to 10percent chunky ingredients can be aseptically packaged. Individual particulates can be up to 6mm in size. Fibres can be 1 x 15mm, with viscosity potentially up to 3,500mPa*s.

With the Food Option filling machines, SIG Combibloc is applying its know-how from the field of aseptic food filling technology, with its unique product variety and flexibility, to standard filling machines. SIG Combibloc has done this in a very straightforward way, without bringing additional complexity into the whole system and without high investment costs. The flexibility of the filling machine technology, which enables operators to fill a wide range of food products, is also the key to products that allow higher margins.

For frischli, a well-established owner-operated company founded in 1901, the new filling machines offer the chance to further expand the company's extensive range of long-life dairy products. With the filling machines from SIG Combibloc, frischli is able to fill not only milk, cream and milkshake drinks, but also more viscous dessert sauces, puddings and custard.

Michael Dokel, Production Supervisor at frischli said: "We were impressed by the outstanding service the team from SIG Combibloc provided when they installed the new filling machines and brought them into service. The special challenge in that task was to keep the regular production process running. The team made sure everything worked smoothly, and the machines were able to be brought into service on schedule". A total of around 100 different frischli products are set to be available in carton packs from SIG Combibloc.
