The tna robag 5 is an industry first ultra-high speed VFFS system. Boasting speeds of up to 300 bags per minute on a single tube design, the robag 5 comes with a new high-performance scale, continuous motion ultrasonic back seal technology and a new advanced controls platform. Together with the recently released tna ropac 5 case packer, the system will transform production line efficiencies by more than doubling the industry’s current average packaging speeds within a single, fully integrated and highly compact packaging solution.
It was recently unveiled at SNAXPO in Atlanta, USA. The product has been equipped with a range of new innovative features. This includes the tna intelli-weigh 0220 omega high-speed scale. Featuring 20 weigh heads, this ultra-high precision scale is capable of combining different products, while offering fast and accurate product transfer with minimum waste. In addition, the integration of ultrasonic back seal technology has enabled tna’s engineers to overcome the thermal transfer limitations of traditional heat seal methods to provide superior seal integrity even at high speeds. Together with the new tna intelli-date 5 date coder, these new innovations enable the tna robag 5 to operate at unsurpassed speeds of up to 300 bags per minute from a single tube, while reducing the amount of waste, ensuring that each bag meets the highest quality standards.
The robag 5 is manufactured in a high-grade stainless steel to reduce the risk of corrosion and deliver an advanced level of food safety and superior equipment longevity. In addition, the system is equipped with the latest controls technology, including a new real-time CXE controller that reduces maintenance costs and downtime by supplying manufacturers with instant, highly detailed system diagnostics. At the same time, tna’s intelli-sys software provides a single point of control for the complete line, whether that’s for a central controls centre within the plant as part of a remote management solution.
