Bosch Packaging Technology wins Red Dot and Swiss Packaging Award

In spring 2018 Bosch Packaging Technology was honored with two awards:


The international Red Dot design award compares the best in the industry. The Bosch Packaging Technology site in Crailsheim participated in the product category “Industrial equipment, machinery and automatization” with the newly developed filling and closing machine AFG 5000. Product manager Dieter Bandtel is proud of the Product Design Award received in March 2018. “Our latest innovation is crowned with this success,” said Bandtel. The hard work put in by the entire team paid off. The fill and sealing machine for highly precise dosage of sterile powder was launched successfully within an in-house event on the site in Crailsheim in September 2017.


The Swiss Packaging Award is the Swiss platform for creativity and innovation in the packaging industry. With this award, the Swiss Packaging Institute honors outstanding services and packaging solutions. Among them Bosch and BillerudKorsnäs’ collaboration on Sealed Paper Packaging which has won the 2018 Swiss Packaging Award in the Technology category on April 11 in Zurich, Switzerland. The jury recognized Sealed Paper Packaging specifically for its unique combination of mono-material Axello® paper from BillerudKorsnäs and the ZAP-Module from Bosch Packaging Technology, which together enable the production of 100 percent dust-tight yet fully recyclable packaging for dry products such as sugar, grains and flour. The solution is currently available on vertical form-fill-seal as well as mandrel wheel machines, providing an attractive alternative to the traditional paper bags in this segment. “Thanks to our long-standing cooperation with Bosch we can challenge conventional packaging and transition towards a more sustainable future. We are honored that our passion for innovation is being recognized by this award”, says Ole Paulussen, sales manager at BillerudKorsnäs.
