tna, stand 154, AUSPACK 2015, Melbourne, Australia, 24-27 March 2015

Integrated packaging and processing solutions provider tna will highlight its flagship high performance packaging and distribution systems at this year’s AUSPACK exhibition. Visitors to the stand will be able to learn more about the tna robag® FX 3ci high speed bagger, as well as the tna roflo® HM 3 horizontal motion conveyor. Experts from tna’s global team will also be on hand to demonstrate how its automation and controls capabilities can help manufacturers maximise performance, as well as showcase the benefits that tna’s acquisition of 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, tna intelli-read® bar code verification scanning system 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 HM 3 conveyor, a horizontal motion distribution system whose low force operation minimises product loss, offering speed and direction control to optimise performance. Particularly suited to heavy coated products as seasoning does not build up on the pans, the tna roflo HM 3 has an easy-to-clean design to help manufacturers reduce waste and comply with strict HACCP and QA standards.

Alongside its existing portfolio of packaging, seasoning and distribution solutions, tna now offers a variety of FOODesign’s world leading fryers and cookers, including batch fryers, continuous fryers, baking and toasting ovens, and speciality roasting equipment. These systems are suitable for use across a wide variety of applications including meat, poultry, seafood, bakery, confectionery and snack foods.

Paul Irwin, regional sales manager – Australia, tna, commented: “Having attended every AUSPACK exhibition since the very first in 2005, we’re excited to return once again to demonstrate our revolutionary packaging and processing technology. It’s also a great opportunity for us to showcase the benefits of our integrated food production lines and highlight, as a single source provider, how our products can help maximise performance without sacrificing end product quality.”
