Bosch wins design award for Sigpack VPF


The Sigpack VPF (Vertical Platform for Flat Pouches), the first freely scalable flat pouch machine from Bosch, has been honoured with the German Design Award 2018 in the Excellent Product Design category.

The German Design Council presents the prestigious award on an annual basis. The German Design Award is the second prestigious accolade for the Sigpack VPF following the German Packaging Award in 2016.

The Sigpack VPF represents a concept for the filling of flat pouches with powder products such as sugar. The equipment is said to break new ground in terms of flexibility. Manufacturers from the food and pharma industries will be able to scale production from two to 12 lines and/or to change pouch sizes quickly in order to meet current market demand. A further benefit of the Sigpack VPF is its innovative dosing system, whereby each line has its own dosing chamber and its own stock of product. This means for example two products can be filled on the same machine at the same time.

The German Design Council is one of the world’s leading competence centers for communication and brand management in the field of design. The organization presents the German Design Award on an annual basis. A high-profile, international jury honours innovative products, projects, their producers and their designers
