Bosch Bar Production Technology - The Bosch Contiline

Bosch’s Packaging Technology Division is, in our minds, the undisputed innovator in the packaging equipment field. Their Bar Production Technology team recognized the growing worldwide market for confectionary, cereal and muesli bars and has developed the Bosch Contiline to address the production difficulties associated with these sweet, sticky bars.

As always, the Bosch machines and related systems represent the highest technical standards, flexibility and efficiency. They can be inherently adapted to individual customer needs as well as specific market requirements.

The Bosch Contiline provides bar makers with leading bar production capabilities. The technology is progressive and state-of-the-art and, it allows producers to realize incredibly quick mass and product changes. Stable production and the newest hygienic standards insure the highest quality of the final product. The machines are extremely reliable and provide great flexibility for effective operation.

As always, from the beginning of a project, Bosch works with the team at Charles Downer & Co. to offer our customers comprehensive technological support and the most competent consultation.
