Food processing and packaging specialist tna will unveil a new generation of VFFS technology at SNAXPO 2018, in Atlanta, USA, March 12-14.

The company announced that it would unveil the tna robag® 5, the latest generation of its series of VFFS technology, in a world premiere at SNAXPO 2018.

The robag 5 will form the final piece in tna performance 5.0, the company’s answer to ultra-high speed production line performance. Together with the recently launched ropac® 5, a fast case packer for flexible bags, tna’s new VFFS system will deliver high productivity levels with one of the industry’s smallest footprints, the company says.

“2017 was a huge year for us at tna as we launched performance 5.0, a revolutionary new approach to doubling production line performance,” comments Alf Taylor, CEO at tna.

The new tna robag® 5 will not only deliver the ultra-high bagging speeds, but also provide faster changeovers, intuitively designed technology, advanced equipment integration and more product capabilities in a single, highly compact system. 

This year’s display will also include the latest addition to tna’s portfolio of unique distribution solutions, the roflo® VMCS3. As the world’s first chip sizer that uses vibratory motion to separate large from small chips, the tna roflo VMCS 3 is able to maximize packaging efficiencies and speeds for a wide variety of fried snack products, such as potato chips, but also fruit and other root vegetable chips.

Visitors will be able to find out how the system’s unique pan design ensures that each chip is sized, sorted and gently transported along the line, for a continuous product flow with minimum breakage.
