  • Out hot-air sealing system

    Our hot air welding machine is a device for non-contact, continuous welding of thermoplastic films. The film is welded by strongly heated air which is directed onto the film.

    The special feature of our hot air welding device is, due to the contactless mode of operation, the system works almost wear-free and is therefore extremely maintenance-friendly.

    You can find out more about our hot air welding unit HERE.

  • Changes

    A lot has changed over the years. The engineering industry has not remained unchanged either. Today we have put together a picture for you which shows the changes well.

    On the first picture you can see our hall a few years ago. There you can see very well how the machines have changed over time. The machines have evolved from a bulky and impractical design to a more minimalist design that can be customized. This has been made possible by modern technology. This also offered many advantages over time. This made simple and individual operation as well as a customizable design possible.

  • Hygiene-friendly CUBIX machine housing

    Another trend-setting milestone is the servo motor “CUBIX” machine series, which was first introduced in 2008. We were the first machine manufacturer to develop a machine concept that implemented the hygienic requirements. The CUBIX housing implements a consistent, hygiene-friendly design in machine construction. The absence of horizontal surfaces (all surfaces are slanted) and the use of stainless steel ensure very good cleanability.

    The form, fill and seal machines are developed, designed, assembled and tested at our headquarters in Großen Buseck with the customer in mind. On-time delivery as well as a structured commissioning by our own service team, which works closely together with our customers, complete our competence.

    That was our part 4 to “PREWA History”. Next week we are already at part 5 and thus the last part of the series.

  • High-end machine with “Cubix” design

    The high-end form fill and seal machine from prewa Verpackungsmaschinenbau is characterized by a robust tubular frame and a high quality in the selection of mechanical and electrical components.

  • Family-run comany!

    Unfortunately, the words family-run company are no longer heard so often today. Fortunately, this is different with us! Our part 3 on “PREWA History” is about exactly this topic!

    On 25.02.2004 Mr. Preuß retired. Mr. Marscheck and Mr. Dörr, long-time employees of the company, took over the shares from Mr. Preuß. Together with Mr. Wagner, the three managing directors lead the family-run company with flat hierarchies.

    Since the founding of the company in 1983, we are engaged in the production of product and customer related form, fill and seal machines and their accessories, such as counting and dosing systems, product feeding systems as well as turnkey packaging lines. Besides that, we also offer special solutions to our customers.

    With our machine series we offer a machine technology from “low-cost” to “high-end” solutions in the area of “food” and “non-food”.

    We hope you enjoyed our part 3!

    Next Monday you can expect in part 4: “Hygiene-friendly CUBIX machine housing”.

    Next week we will continue directly with the topic “Family-run company”!

  • Prewa packaging machines

    In today’s post we would like to give you some info and details about our packaging machines. ⁣⁣

    There are many possible applications for our packaging machines. But basically it can be summarized as follows: Prewa Verpackungsmaschinenbau’s weighing, dosing, and counting machines are used to dose customer-specific products into the appropriate packaging. ⁣⁣

    Powdery, pourable, solid, liquid or pasty products can be weighed, dosed or counted.⁣⁣

    As you can see, the application possibilities are huge. If you are now wondering exactly which products are packaged by us just remember our rule of thumb: “Everything that falls from top to bottom can be packed by us”.⁣⁣

    In the future, you will of course be able to see more detailed examples of which products can be packaged with our machines.⁣⁣

  • Profile: Eckard Wagner

    Today we start with the first profile. At the beginning we want to introduce you to Mr. Eckard Wagner. One of the founders of Prewa

    Position: Managing Partner & Founder ⁣

  • The genesis of PREWA packaging machinery!⁣⁣

    Today we start with our series “PREWA History”. ⁣⁣
    The first part is about the origin of PREWA Verpackungsmaschinenbau.⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣
    Many years of experience in the form, fill and seal packaging machine industry led the two founders, Eckardt Wagner and Eckehardt Preuß, to establish Prewa Verpackungsmaschinenbau GmbH on July 1, 1983. The name PREWA was represented by the first surname letters of the founders (PRE Preuß / WA Wagner). ⁣⁣
    The beginnings were in premises in Biebertal/ Rodheim in the Karlstraße 21. Quickly it was clear that these were not sufficient and on 15.5.1987 a new building in the Großen Busecker industrial estate was moved into. Until today and by several extensions / enlargements, the company Prewa Verpackungsmaschinenbau GmbH expanded. ⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣
    We hope you enjoyed our first part of “PREWA History”!⁣⁣
    ⁣⁣
    Next week Monday we will publish part 2 with the topic “Innovation: Pneumatic Drive Technology”.⁣⁣⁣
