tna SHOWCASES TOTAL PACKAGING LINE SOLUTIONS AT PACKEXPO 2013

tna stand 6963, PackExpo 2013, Las Vegas, USA, September 23-25 2013


Leading global food packaging specialist, tna, will demonstrate its flagship high performance seasoning, bagging and conveying solutions at PackExpo 2013. Experts will present the new tna intelli-flav® OMS 5 seasoning system, the tna robag® FX 3ci high speed vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) bagger and the tna roflo® HM 3 conveyor, as well as highlighting the benefits tna’s controls and integration capabilities can bring to production lines.


For the first time in the US, visitors can see the latest evolution of tna’s leading intelli-flav® seasoning range, the new tna intelli-flav® OMS 5. Delivering the ultimate flexibility in on-machine seasoning (OMS) applications, the tna intelli-flav® OMS 5 offers consistent coverage and flavour for both wet and dry seasoning. Fully integrated with both oil spray and flavour injection systems, tna’s new OMS system provides total control of adhesion and fast flavour changes for snack lines. Further performance benefits are achieved through the enhanced position of the scarfplate on the infeed. Mounted to the edge of the drum, the scarf now better directs the product into the spraying and flavouring area, providing high quality seasoning performance. Additionally, the newly designed scalloped infeed conveyor allows more product to enter the seasoning drum, while also helping to control product direction for greater accuracy and reduced waste. 


Also on-stand will be the tna robag® FX 3ci high speed VFFS packaging machine, which offers unmatched throughput rates of up to 150bpm on potato chips, and is suitable for high volumes of a wide variety of other products. With innovative new features including the new tna intelli-weigh® 0314 omega multi-head scale, the tna hyper-detect® metal detector and tna flo-thru former®, the tna robag® FX 3ci provides manufacturers with up to 30 per cent improvement in performance.


tna’s experts will be available to present the company’s innovative horizontal motion conveyor, the tna roflo® HM 3. This conveyor benefits from total control of speed and direction to ensure optimal performance, and smoothly distributes goods to minimise losses and breakages. 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 ensure that manufacturers comply with strict HACCP and QA standards, deliver the highest quality products and reduce waste. 


tna will also highlight its controls system expertise by demonstrating the integration of tna’s equipment into a production line. Through the collection of detailed and reliable data from as many parts of the manufacturing process as possible, tna’s specialist solutions can target a variety of inefficiencies, such as poor product quality, material wastage or unsustainable processes. tna supports manufacturers in the design, installation and integration of their control systems to maximise productivity and maintain food safety, quality and traceability.


tna installs production equipment in more than 120 countries and offers 24/7 support project management services to customers globally. For information and advice on how tna can improve packaging, distribution and seasoning processes, visit stand 6963 at PackExpo 2013.
