The sensor-controlled product detection and adaptivity of the concept machine SVC 1820 BH from Bosch Packaging Technology has been honored with the German Packaging Award 2017. The award is presented on an annual basis by the German Packaging Institute (Deutsches Verpackungsinstitut – dvi). The vertical form, fill and seal machine SVC 1820 BH convinced the jury with sensors inside the forming tube. The machine is designed to package food. The jurors rated a total of 200 projects from twelve countries and rewarded the best innovations in ten categories.
“By winning the German Packaging Award, enterprises show their outstanding innovative power and make a strong statement,” says Dr. Bettina Horenburg, dvi Board Member and person in charge of the German Packaging Award. Senior development engineers André Philipp and Peter Langers from Bosch Packaging Technology in Weert, The Netherlands, accepted the award at the winners’ gala in the Humboldt Box in front of the Berlin City Palace on September 26, 2017.
