Food processor tna has launched a high-speed case packer for flexible bags capable of speeds of up to 300 bags per minute.
The new tna ropac 5 is the first and only side-load case packer in the world that uses tna’s unique, patented semi-rotary bag stacking technology to quickly and efficiently pack small to medium, pillow-style snack bags into secondary containers.
With its innovative, highly compact design, the new tna ropac 5 takes a monumental leap in terms of performance by more than doubling the industry’s average case packing speeds, offering snack food manufacturers unprecedented levels of throughput, exceptional equipment reliability and one of the smallest machine footprints.
With the tna ropac 5, tna is breaking new grounds in regards to engineering excellence and innovation. Contrary to the majority of case packers that employ vacuum pick and drop technology, the tna ropac is based on tna’s own revolutionary, semi-rotary bag stacking motion.
“The snacks market is booming and food manufacturers need equipment that is able to deliver the speeds and efficiencies they need to respond to the ever-increasing demand for packaged snacks,” said Michael Green, tna’s group general manager.
