MINNEAPOLIS - Oct. 11, 2010 - Thiele Technologies is pleased to announce a new complete washdown package available on its
tray and bliss forming machines. An industry leader for more than 60 years, Thiele's SWF product line of tray and bliss formers has built
a solid reputation for their durability and operational excellence.
Originally designed for produce boxes, these machines have made their way into nearly every industry that uses corrugated packaging.
Thiele's dedication to continuous improvement has resulted in improvements to the design, operator interface, maintainability and
longevity of the tray and bliss formers, making them adaptable to a variety of industries. This newest improvement comes in response
to a need from Thiele's food industry customers. With a washdown package, it's possible for the tray or bliss former to be located inside
the clean area of a packaging room. This allows customers to decrease their floor space and reduce costs by eliminating lengthy
conveyors which bring corrugated trays into the packaging room through an opening in the wall.
