    Bosch's new topload cartoner.

Process and packaging technology supplier Bosch has added a new topload cartoner to its TTM portfolio.

The Sigpack TTMP offers an efficient and flexible cartoning solution for pharmaceutical customers who need packaging for ampoules, vials, syringes, and pens.

Features include a simple and safe changeover concept, high process safety, and a broad format and product flexibility.

Due to its modular design, the machine layout can be adjusted to different product infeeds.

With an output of 30-200 cartons, the TTMP provides individual solutions for both small and large production batches.

The Sigpack TTMP can be seamlessly combined with the Sigpack TTMC case packer, offering customers a uniform, user-friendly operating concept for the entire line.

Due to a patented format changeover concept, tool-less format changes with vertical restart can be carried out within a few minutes.

The open and easily accessible machine design provides for a very fast line clearance.

A wide range of product infeed solutions and loading possibilities ensure the gentle handling of sensitive products such as vials, ampoules, syringes and injection pens, and various gripper technologies provide for smooth packaging of the products.
