Syntegon Sells its 300th Packaging System for Bars

Eleven years after its launch, Syntegon recently sold its 300th bar packaging system. As Syntegon focuses on continuous improvement of the line, the machines score points with their flexible and sustainable solutions.

The packaging line’s success is the result of seamless system integration and continuous improvement. This has also been recognized by Biscuits Leclerc, the Canadian food manufacturer and purchaser of the 300th system.

Seamless integration of proven machines

When Syntegon first introduced the bar packaging system at the 2011 interpack trade show, the company pursued an innovative approach: the individual machines were to be linked by a common operator interface to ensure optimal product flow. The original system consisted of a DFR accumulator, Sigpack HRM form, fill and seal machine and Sigpack TTM topload cartoner. Today, further components can be added seamlessly, such as an Elematic case packer – a combination of proven machines for the efficient packaging of bars at a maximum output of 1,500 products and 200 cartons per minute.

In 2014 and 2017, new product feeding modules based on the new and particularly flexible linear motor technology were added – the Sigpack FIT and the Sigpack PFI. Since the end of 2019, it has also been possible to add the new Sigpack DCIE gentle distribution station for sensitive products such as cereal bars. Most recently, the “paper-ON-form” retrofit kit for horizontal form, fill and seal machines was integrated into the bar system to provide food companies with sustainable paper packaging options.

Flexible changeovers for different pack sizes and shapes

Since the sales launch of the bar system, 300 lines have been installed, impressing customers with their high overall line efficiency. In addition to centralized control of all modules via a shared user interface, gentle handling is a key advantage; another is its flexibility.

Syntegon lays the foundation for smooth production processes for all customers, with 1,100 service experts and a comprehensive service portfolio throughout the entire machine lifecycle from spare parts management to digital line optimization. In the pharma sector, the company’s intelligent solutions enable the safe and high-quality production, processing, filling, inspection, and packaging of liquid and solid pharmaceuticals. In the food industry, Syntegon’s flexible and reliable technologies produce and pack confectionery, dry food, frozen food, and dairy products.

As a leader in the development of sustainable packaging solutions, Syntegon reduces the energy consumption of its machines and pursues ambitious goals to lower its emissions. Learn more at:
