tna showcases total solutions at Pack Expo 2014

01 September 2014

Integrated packaging and processing solutions provider tna will present its range of high performance total systems at this year’s Pack Expo.  

Experts from tna’s global team will demonstrate the complete choice of solutions, including the tna intelli-flav® OMS 5 seasoning system, the tna robag® FX 3ci high speed vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) bagger, and the groundbreaking tna robag® FXIS 3ci impulse sealing system for polyethlylene (PE) packaging that delivers speeds of up to 150 bpm for fresh produce and frozen applications. In addition, tna will highlight its automation and SCADA expertise, as well as demonstrate the benefits that newly acquired FOODesign’s cryo-jet® ambient and chilled air cooling systems can bring to production lines for the first time.

tna’s intelli-flav® OMS 5 system delivers the ultimate in flexibility for on-machine seasoning (OMS) applications, offering consistent coverage and flavour for both wet and dry seasoning. Fully integrated with both oil spray and flavour injection systems, the tna intelli-flav® OMS 5 system provides total control of adhesion and fast flavour changes for snack lines. 

Delivering unrivalled throughput of up to 250 bpm, the tna robag® FX 3ci high speed VFFS packaging machine offers production flexibility in a compact, easy-to-clean system that is suitable for a wide variety of products. The latest in tna’s robag® technology, the tna robag® FXIS 3ci impulse sealing system offers efficient polyethylene (PE) sealing and bagging of fresh and frozen vegetables, salads, ready to eat fruit and pre-wrapped candy at speeds of up to 150 bpm.  This innovative system ensures precise temperature control, minimises downtime and offers an extended product lifespan.

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 comply with strict HACCP and QA standards and reduce waste.  Visitors to the stand can also see the tna roflo® VM 3 vibratory motion conveyor, which gently, yet rapidly transports more fragile products, such as snacks and confectionery, minimising the risk of product breakage and rejects.

tna will also highlight its system control and integration expertise. The team will demonstrate the benefits of control systems, such as programmable logic controllers (PLC) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA). These systems are easily integrated into existing production lines giving plant operators the ability to target specific areas where inefficiencies are most prevalent. This ensures production is fully optimised.

For the first time, visitors to the stand will also be able to experience FOODesign’s innovative cryo-jet® ambient & chilled air cooling systems. Cooling up to ten times faster than forced or natural convection cooling, the patented air impingement technology can be used to cool a variety of food products quickly and efficiently, while maintaining critical product properties including appearance, taste and shape.
