With the latest evolution of HDG RB-400 series, HDG is now providing a further high speed packing machine. With an output of up to 400 pouches per minute this machine combines maximum flexibility with respect to applications that have diverse pouch styles and sizes. Depending on the version, this machine type can handle a pouch format from 40mm x 40mm up to 400mm x 400mm. Thanks to the consistent and advanced quick change system, a tool-less format change can be implemented by one person within less than 60 minutes.

For a globally active confectionary producer, a 4 lane machine (quadruplex) for the filling of coated candies into flat and stand up pouches in a doypack style has recently been delivered. In this project an output of up to 360 pouches/min is achieved. The machine produces and fills both pouches with a 'zipper' as a reclosing system and pouches without this system. Functions also include metal detection with automatic product separation, as well as rejection of incorrect weights before the pouch filling, a fully automatic film splicer and an integrated station to close the zipper. This provides a very customer friendly system.

All HDG machines are built in a modular design and can be combined with dosing systems for dry and wet products. Various pouch sizes and styles can be retrofitted at any time. HDG machines are designed with the highest hygiene and safety standards that most multinational companies demand and can be delivered with the latest Pack-ML standards. All machines are capable of 24/7 operations and, depending on product specification, can be delivered with conformity to the corresponding ATEX regulations.

Announcing a new high capacity machine for the packaging of tablets and capsules

HDG Verpackungsmaschinen GmbH has developed a machine concept's for Vitamex Manufacturing AB, a well-known Swedish manufacturer of wellness products, setting new performance standards for the packaging of tablets and capsules into side sealed pouches.

The packaging machine type RB-400-4 used for this project handles 4 tablets and capsules, each of different size and form, and reaches an output of up to 240 pouches per minute. This corresponds to a capacity which is currently unique for packaging machines handling this kind of application.

For the operation of this machine only one operator is needed who fills the tablets and capsules into the reservoir. From this point on, the packaging process is fully automated and continued up until the packaged outer case. Furthermore, in order to guarantee the requested product quality, the specifically designed packaging machine allows production under pharmaceutical conditions, i.e. under cleanroom as well as the specific qualification regulations of the customer.

To enable the application of very thin film material, the film transport system of the RB-400-4 machine has been optimized so that the pouches are supported by a special vacuum technique during transport through the cutting stations. The packaging machine is equipped with the proven HDG quick-change features at the turret. This means that not only the change-over time of different formats can be reduced to a minimum but also the cleaning during product changes can be optimised.

The dosing technology for the tablets and capsules was delivered by Pharma Packaging Systems Ltd. This British manufacturer was, contrary to some of it's competitors, in the position to handle the variety of products within the requested customer specifications. Preceding attempts to dose the tablets and capsules with vibration feeders - which was common in the market up to that point of time - had failed due to the high capacity and product variety.

After a construction phase of eleven month, HDG moves from Kuerten to Lindlar into its new sales and production location. In Lindlar, a building complex with a floor area of 4,000 square meters has been constructed on a plot of 14,000 square meters within the last few months. Centre pieces of the new building are the assembly hall and the warehouse of 2,800 square meters, which enable HDG to extend the range of products and services offered as well as to realise more complex projects, such as complete production lines or new developments. The building project with an investment volume of five Million Euro also aims to improve occupational safety and quality. Employees are looking forward to modern office rooms, new social areas as well as a large canteen. Thanks to a better insulation and the use of a combined heat and power unit, all requirements for energy efficiency are met, so that energy savings of up to 20 percent can be achieved now. For both the shell and interior construction, HDG used local suppliers to reduce our carbon footprint further. The management sees the moving to Lindlar as a long-term investment. Thanks to the healthy order situation and increasingly complex packaging projects, the production and sales location in Kuerten reached their capacity limits. In order to meet highest quality standards without compromise and to further expand the strong market position, HDG urgently needed more space.

HDG implements ATEX-compliant packaging project

HDG_ADA_1.jpg
... More

Within the scope of a packaging project implemented in conjunction with the hotel cosmetics manufacturer and contract filler ADA Cosmetic GmbH, HDG Verpackungsmaschinen GmbH has developed a packaging line for side sealed pouches that is intended specifically for the packing of highly inflammable cosmetic products.

The packaging of alcohol containing cosmetic articles, such as creams, shampoos or face masks, places high demands on the packaging systems used. In order to be able to guarantee in an explosive atmosphere a safe and legally compliant packing process and the associated health protection of the employee, a packaging lines is required, that entirely conforms to the European Union's ATEX directives.

HDG met these challenges and in conjunction with the hotel cosmetics manufacturer and contract filler ADA Cosmetic GmbH, based in Kehl, Germany, designed a packaging machine for side sealed pouches that is particularly geared to the specified packaging of various cosmetic articles and counteracts the formation of an explosive atmosphere as well as effective ignition sources. In preparation for this design, a comprehensive safety analysis was carried out in which the precise product processing quantities and the explosion risk resulting from these were defined. Based on the findings obtained, the critical areas were sub-divided into different zones, in order to define the scope of the necessary measures and to adapt components, such as e.g. the sealing area sensor technology, accordingly. Moreover, the packaging machine was equipped with a mobile pump trolley with two different liquid metering systems: for one thing with a heatable funnel for greasy and pasty products, for another thing with an unheated funnel for alcohol-containing products conforming to ATEX guidelines. Altogether, not only a more reliable packaging process can be ensured but also a high level of flexibility in respect of the packaging of different products.

The packaging line

The HDG-RBK horizontal form, fill and seal machine in its duplex version that is already well established in the market was selected for this packaging project and produced in accordance with the requiremeints of the ATEX safety objectives at the company site in Kürten, Germany. The machine was designed in wash-down version for a format size range of 2 x 45 mm x 50 mm to 2 x 92 mm x 210 mm and for processing of up to 140 pouches per minute. In a first step of the packaging process, 3 and 4 side sealed pouches as well as double pouches, i.a. for enclosing as samples in magazines, are produced on the RBK line and filled with different cosmetic products. In line with its quality, the machine is equipped with the proven HDG rotary table with quick-change system. Hence not only the changeover times for various format sizes can be reduced to a minimum, but also the cleaning during product changes can be significantly improved.
