Topic of the Bosch-symposium: Reducing of operating cost within dry food processing and packaging

Food waste is an ongoing issue. Manufacturers and suppliers are in search of technologies that enable food waste reduction and filling precision. To keep abreast of competitors, technologies have been developed to meet these demands.
 
Research shows that most suppliers volumetric dosing devices for dry food could only promise a five to eight per cent variance in over and under filling products into bags. Therefore customers are often forced to additionally procure heck-weighers leading to an increase of cost and footprint while  trying only to balance the inefficient volumetric doser. Bosch’s auger filler and belt weigher provides in most cases less one per cent variance on powder and/or granular foods.
 
Bosch’s FBW belt weigher is a gravimetric filler,  a completely new invention, created to reduce product waste. You are welcome to learn more about the advantages of this technology at the Bosch-symposium at agrofood & plastprintpack West Africa 2018 in Abidjan.
