Form-fill-seal innovations at Expopack
Global packaging solutions specialist tna (www.tnasolutions.com) will be presenting its latest innovations at Expopack 2012. With an emphasis on simplicity and performance, tna will highlight its robag® FX 3ci high performance system complete with new tna Ω 314 multi-head scale. In addition, the company’s unique seasoning system, the new tna intell-flav® OMS 3c will be featured, along with its horizontal and vibratory conveyors, the tna roflo ® HM 3 and tna roflo® VM 3.
Celebrating 30 years in the industry, the tna robag is the industry’s leading VFFS machine. Central to the production lines of many household names, the high-performance bagger handles high volumes of sweet and savory snacks, confections, cereals, pasta, powders, meat and poultry and fresh and frozen produce. With improved modularity and core component capability, the new tna robag FX 3ci combines outstanding features to dramatically increase speed and precision to provide up to 30% improvement in performance in both outputs, with throughput rates of up to 250 bags per minute, and reduction of rejects.
Additionally, the new Graphical User Interface screen (GUI) provides improved visibility of operation. Also available with tna smartdate®5 date coders and tna hyper-detect® metal detectors, which can detect 1.0mm stainless steel, 1.0mm non ferrous and 0.8mm ferrous material at high speeds. The new tna robag FX 3ci can be fully integrated up- and downstream onto existing lines and combined with other proven products from tna’s portfolio, such as the tna intelli-weigh® multi-head scales for precise and efficient weighing.
Further up the packaging line, accurate seasoning can be achieved with the tna intelli-flav OMS 3c. With exceptional performance providing even coverage at throughput rates of 100 – 500 kg per hour in a wide variety of applications, this latest innovation is a complete, one-piece solution for both wet and dry seasoning and flavoring. Additionally, tna’s roflo VM 3 and roflo HM 3 series of vibratory and horizontal motion distribution solutions optimize product transport to minimize breakages and loss of flavor, while eliminating the risk of cross contamination.
