Technology-packed bagger is engineered for frozen food applications

The BVC 400 VFFS Bagging Machine from Rovema North America, a subsidiary of Rovema GmbH, is a continuous-motion, dual-axis servo, vertical form/fill/seal machine offering  broad flexibility in product sizes and shapes demanded by the frozen-food sector.  Capable of running up to 150 cycles per minute at a maximum forming width of 400mm, the hygienic design BVC 400 is equipped with two new technologies that set it apart:

  • Sense & Seal is a patented quality control system that determines if product is present in the cross-seal area and, if so, discharges the bag without applying seal pressure. This prevents any excess product from being accidentally sealed in the seal area to reduce downtimes for jams and extends tool life.
  • Sense – Tack – Welding, (STW) applied to monolayer films used in the frozen food sector is claimed to offer advantages over Constant Heat Poly and Impulse Seal technologies. STW also seals laminated films to provide a repeatable, low-cost solution for sealing a variety of films used for frozen foods.
  • A hygienic stainless-steel design provides easy cleaning while a closed-frame structure keeps all product contact parts segregated from noncontact parts. Additionally, a slightly offset electrical cabinet simplifies cleaning.

    The BVC 400’s flexible configurations allow for packaging products including chicken nuggets, french fries, vegetables, seafood and more. This same machine also can be designed for fresh foods with ultrasonic welding requirements.
