Navigating the booth is easy. Simply click on the left or right arrows to move around the booth and then select the machine or kiosk that is of interest to you.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) recognized Bosch’s commitment to superior environmental performance by awarding the New Richmond and Shell Lake, WI facilities with Green Tier 2 Status on August 14 and 15, respectively.
As one of only four companies to receive Tier 2 status, Bosch’s environmentally friendly projects and its new partnership with the Wisconsin DNR demonstrate a commitment to maintain and improve sustainability efforts within the company, making a significant impact on the environmental health of the company and the community. Bosch received this recognition due to its environmental record, willingness to exceed regulatory requirements, implementation of an Environmental Management System and ideas for improving performance that would benefit both the company and the environment.
Some of the key projects that have helped Bosch achieve the Green Tier status include:
- Significantly reducing the amount of industrial waste, energy storage and water usage
- Implementing recycling waste streams for manufacturing processes
- Continuous improvement projects to further eliminate paint related to hazardous waste
- Achieving significant reductions in CO2 emissions
To commemorate this recognition, Bosch will plant a Wisconsin state tree, the Sugar Maple, at the New Richmond and Shell Lake facilities. The tree itself is another step toward helping the environment, due to its ability to release water into upper, drier soil layers, helping itself and the plants around it. To Bosch, every small step to help the environment makes a big impact.
In addition to planting the trees, Bosch has selected three community organizations to receive cash awards toward environmental projects, including:
- Shell Lake School District – The district will receive $10,000 toward its Edible School Yard Project, a sustainable garden growing organic vegetables that will be incorporated into the school lunch program. The project will help teach students about farming and nutrition.
- New Richmond School District – The district will receive $15,000 toward The Weather Bug project, a weather station to help students learn about meteorology and the science of weather and data collection.
- City of New Richmond – The city will receive $10,000 toward the City Stock Purchase Program, which allows concerned citizens and business to invest in the city for special projects. The funds will be directed to an environmental or technology project.
About Green Tier
Green Tier provides an opportunity for Wisconsin to combine and achieve economic and environmental goals. Building on the leadership of business, environmental and government communities, the program supports the Department of Natural Resources’ mandate to protect and enhance the environment, while setting the stage for economic growth. Green Tier has two tiers, or participation levels. Tier 1 is designed to encourage innovation, collaboration and new environmental goal setting. Tier 2 involves more rigorous participation requirements, placing greater emphasis on superior environmental performance contracts as a means of giving customized regulatory flexibility proportional to environmental performance.

The fresh produce industry gathers this week in Dallas, TX for the annual United Fresh show. This year the show is co-located with AMI’s International Meat, Poultry and Seafood Convention; drawing an expected crowed of over 25,000 attendees. We invite you to visit the Bosch booth (#12300) in the United Fresh Tech section to see our new Pack 301 IN inverted horizontal flow wrapper. The Pack 301 IN automates the packaging of fresh produce like spring onions, carrots, romaine lettuce hearts, celery, cucumbers and other fresh produce that have a size and shape conducive to flow wrapping. Its film backstand has a modular design that allows users to customize the film path to optimally transport produce into the flow wrapper while maintaining control of the product, minimizing jams and ensuring superior package appearance. Also on display at the Bosch booth will be the Doboy B-550 band sealer and the SVE 2515 vertical form-fill-seal bagger with ultrasonic sealing.
If you’re unable to attend the show, you can watch video from the show floor at United Fresh TV. Last year, Bosch’s Doboy Stratus flow wrapper was highlighted by United Fresh TV. Watch the clip below to see Jon Otto, product manager, explain the flexibility of the Doboy Stratus and demonstrate the machine by packaging a tray of two bell peppers.
We decided to do something a little different for the Holiday season this year at the Raleigh office. Although we almost always work with a children’s charities around the holidays, this year our Charities and Activities committee figured out a way to get everyone even more involved.
As part of our end of the year group activity we broke up into small groups to build 6 new bikes for Toys for Tots. The rules were this: build the bikes according to the directions, have them quality checked, and then race them. Yes, that meant that the adult associates of Bosch Packaging Services rolled up their pants, and raced children’s bikes through our obstacle course! Congratulations to our winners, the Bosch Red Riders, and thanks to everyone for their participation!

We are currently finalizing the preparations for our Track and Trace Open House event in Raleigh, NC later this months. We were able to invite the following speakers to the event:
- Harald Hermann, Rockwell Automation, Inc.
- Kris Bierbaum, Cognex Corporation
- Mike Griffin, Videojet Technologies, Inc.
- Daniel Sanwald, Bosch Packaging Technology
We will also have our CPS 800 machine set up for test runs. The CPS 800 integrates all necessary components of a track and trace solution in one machine that allows for quick integration in existing packaging lines with only minimal footprint requirements. To sing up to attend the event or find out more, please visit our track and trace page.
Based on the success and interest that our Track and Trace solution received at the PackExpo trade show last November, we wanted to provide our customers with another opportunity to see our solution in action and have in-depth discussions with our technical experts and salespeople.
The event is scheduled for February 23–24 and will take place in Raleigh, NC. Find more information here as well as a registration form to sign up for this exciting event. More details and a schedule of events will be posted on this blog at regular intervals.
