Bosch eco-friendly cartons protect fragile products

Including syringes, needles and pipettes

The Bosch Packaging Technology division has introduced an eco-friendly tray carton for the packaging of fragile products.

The EcoSavePack will be produced on the CUT 120 horizontal cartoning machine at speeds of 120 pieces/min. Bosch designed the pack in co-operation with carton manufacturer Faller.

The EcoSavePack is suitable for medical devices

The new packaging protects the contents from transport damage caused by impact, falls or pressure. The inlay provides optimal protection due to its chambered design, which locks the products in place while preventing shifting and contact between products and therefore damage.

The re-closable, folded carton and the easy removal of the product from the inlay make the packaging easy to use, says Bosch. Additionally, patient information leaflets, booklets, outserts, or pre-folded inserts from a roll or sheet can be inserted into the packaging. It is also possible to use the EcoSavePack for syringes, needles and pipettes.

The mono-packaging material used for the tray carton makes plastics obsolete and therefore saves additional process steps and machinery.

The CUT 120 horizontal cartoning machine erects the tray carton, fills and then closes it. Depending on the project, single, multiple or combination packaging can be processed. The CUT 120 can also be easily retrofitted for new applications.

The Bosch Packaging Technology division, based in Waiblingen (Germany), is a leading supplier of packaging technology.
