Ampack Technikum opens its doors


Bosch Packaging Technology unveils its first technical research, development and testing center for filling and sealing liquid and viscous products in Koenigsbrunn, Germany. At the official opening event on 30 th November, guests could explore the 450-square meter building and experience the three dedicated test rooms for food products, production lines and packaging materials first-hand.

“With over 40 years’ experience in hygienic pre-made cups and bottles filling, we want to share our knowledge and help our customers address market needs and industry trends at this state-of-the-art facility, as well as further improving product safety and production performance,” said Rico Randegger, general manager at Ampack GmbH, Centre of Competence at Bosch Packaging Technology for aseptic filling. “To emphasize the importance of innovation and knowledge, we have employed a doctoral student at our Technikum who will work with our experts and external partners.”

The Ampack Technikum is divided into three separate sections, each dedicated to a different stage of testing and analysis based on the customer’s products, production and packaging needs. The first is a microbiological laboratory for chemical and technical assessments, as well as the evaluation of the sterility of selected packaging materials and machine components. “By evaluating the sterility of containers of different types (cups, trays and bottles) we can find the ideal decontamination method that ensures the maximum safety for customer-specific products,” explains Randegger. The Ampack team runs several sterilization tests, for example with hydrogen peroxide or pulsed light, and carries out research on new decontamination methods for sustainable packaging materials.

“In the second room, our team runs mechanical tests, including the inspection of the dosing and sealing process in sterile conditions. At this stage, we technically fine-tune the dosing and sealing process with customer products to ensure an optimum dosing result and sealing quality. Additionally, customers can fill product samples for advertising and marketing purposes (such as consumer tests) on our aseptic lab filler,” adds Randegger.

The last room is a typical research and development center, where Bosch professionals complete the testing phase and develop new functions for the selected packaging materials, machine modules or applications. “Here we have enough space to test run a complete filling machine to validate machine performance under realistic conditions,” said Randegger. Additionally, we optimize the production process with regard to handling and usability, and offer other services, such as hands-on training for improved maintenance.”

As of November 2018, both existing and new Bosch clients can benefit from Ampack’s Technikum and their expertise in the field of filling machines for dairy and food industries.
