It is a fact that Toblerone’s recognition value is incredible: at every airport, Toblerone’s striking packaging lures travelers into duty-free shops. Since its invention in 1909, Toblerone has been produced in the Swiss capital Berne, and nowhere else. Syntegon Technology GmbH has supported the brand with its comprehensive portfolio of secondary packaging technology since the Berne-Brunnen plant in Switzerland was opened in 1985. The Toblerone plant in Berne proved to be the ideal test environment for the newly developed, standardized Elematic 1001 SL sideload case packer.
Toblerone are available in different sizes and flavors which results in different packaging requirements. When Toblerone started looking for a new case packer for the plant, they turned to their partner Bosch Packaging Technology, now Syntegon. Driven by global market needs, the packaging technology experts were already working intensively on the development of the new Elematic 1001 SL sideload case packer for Regular Slotted Cases and were looking for a field test cooperation partner.
In the summer of 2017, Toblerone examined whether the Elematic 1001 SL could really deliver what the technical brochure promised during demanding continuous multi-shift production tests. The Elematic 1001 SL is designed for the medium output rate. It stands out for its small footprint, easy maintenance and user-friendliness. The sideload case packer was integrated into the production line at Toblerone’s factory within a few days and put into operation by Bosch Packaging Technology’s technicians. Since then, the case packer has been packing individual Toblerone bars and multipacks of Toblerone bars in Regular Slotted Cases, a simple folding carton with top and bottom flaps that meet in the middle.
