Ishida increases packing speed by 35%

Ishida Europe has upgraded its iTPS Ishida Total Packaging System with a Charge Transfer Control (CTC), which delivers 150 bags per minute.

The machinery will be used on the Atlas range of snack food bag makers which the company says will increase its already-high speeds on potato chips by a further 35%, on a single packaging machine.

Key to the CTC’s operation is a high speed chute design, featuring a rotary poker and shutter system, combined with gentle product handling.

Fast changeovers

“The hygienic construction allows for simple maintenance and cleaning and the CTC requires no dedicated tooling, which enables fast changeovers. Packing capacity can be boosted without the need for additional floor space.

“This is a further improvement to what was already the best-in-class weighing and bagging solution for the snacks market,” said Simon Ruffley, business manager, Snacks Packaging Systems, Ishida Europe.

“Through further control of the product charge, we have once again extended the boundaries of what can be achieved, delivering the sort of high packing speeds for snack products that up until now were simply unattainable.”

Rotary jaw motion

The CTC enhances the weighing and bagmaking operation by providing greater control of the product charge, the process where product is transferred from the weigher through to the bagmaker.

The reduction in product charge length means speeds can be controlled to deliver the increased throughput while also contributing to lower product and film waste.

The machine is monitored and controlled via the Ishida Snacks system control screen. It improves the performance of the Atlas bagmaker, whose double rotary jaw motion delivers high packing speeds along with accurate film registration and tight bag seals.
