tna hall 2, stand E2/F1, CFIA Rennes 2015, Parc des Expos, Rennes, France, 10-12 March 2015

Integrated packaging and processing solutions provider tna will highlight its flagship high performance packaging and distribution systems at this year’s CFIA Rennes exhibition for the fourth consecutive year. Visitors to the stand will be able to learn more about the tna robag® FX 3ci high speed bagger, and the tna roflo® VM 3 high throw vibratory motion distribution conveyor. Experts from tna’s global team will also be on hand to demonstrate how tna’s automation and controls capabilities can help manufacturers maximise performance, as well as showcase the benefits that tna’s acquisition of processing specialist FOODesign can bring to its customers.

Delivering unrivalled throughput of up to 250 bpm, the tna robag FX 3ci high speed vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) packaging machine offers production flexibility in a compact, easy-to-clean system that is suitable for a wide variety of products. This cutting edge system provides up to a 30 per cent improvement in performance in terms of output and reduction in rejects, while achieving unprecedented throughput rates. With innovative features including the patented tna hyper-detect® metal detector and the tna intelli-scan® visual print code verification system, the tna robag FX 3ci provides manufacturers with a complete packaging solution. In addition, tna has made it even easier to operate the machine by simplifying the film system. The new tna auto-splice® automatically changes film reels when one is finished, increasing packaging efficiency and product throughput by reducing the need for manual intervention.

Also on show is the tna roflo VM 3 high throw conveyor which rapidly, yet gently transports a variety of products, smoothing out any build up for optimal product flow. It is also suitable for conveying non-fragile, wet and sticky products, thanks to its aggressive vibratory conveyor option which runs at a higher amplitude (approximately 15 mm) and at a much lower frequency (around 12Hz). Also available as a proportional gateless system, the tna roflo VM 3 significantly reduces product damage or breakage through a smooth tray end. Plus, it offers the highest level of cleanliness as products come into contact with fewer surface areas and there are no moving parts where microorganisms can hide. This enables manufacturers to run multiple products on one line by ensuring easy wash-down during product changeovers.

James Hosford, European director of sales at tna comments: “Our experts are proud to showcase our latest and most innovative products at CFIA Rennes 2015 for the fourth year running. Having recently merged with processing specialist FOODesign, we are eager to present our expanded range of flexible and high performance solutions to the French market.”
