tna robag® 3e: high speed and excellent product quality
The US snacks market is the largest in the world, projected to grow annually by 2.68% (CAGR 2023-2027)1. To address the growing need for high-output solutions, the tna robag® 3e can produce a wide variety of products at speeds of up to 250 bags per minute. The VFFS bagger also sets high-quality standards with product wastage as low as 0.1%, enhancing sustainability.

The simplicity of the tna robag® 3e packaging system makes it easy to operate, service and maintain, helping US manufacturers to deal with labour shortages. Featuring EtherCAT® real-time protocol and an integrated display controller system, this latest tna robag® reduces cabling infrastructure by 20%, enabling easier servicing and lower total installed costs. The tna robag® 3e shares common core components with the tna intelli-flav® OMS 5.1, reducing the need for additional spare parts stocking, while its smart diagnostics and remote connectivity allow real-time communication for faster global servicing support.

the tna intelli-flav® OMS 5.1: accurate and flexible seasoning
With ever-changing consumer tastes, the tna intelli-flav® OMS 5.1 features a responsive variable mass seasoning function with a dynamic vibratory weigh conveyor, to directly control product, oil spray and flow of seasoning powder into a single drum. As a result, US manufacturers benefit from the accurate seasoning of a wide range of hot and cold products on the same system. It also allows for consistent coverage without costly ingredient losses, further contributing to a healthy bottom line.
