Tna to Double Production Line Speeds With New Ultra-high Speed Systems

Tna to Double Production Line Speeds With New Ultra-high Speed Systems

Tna has launched performance 5.0, a revolutionary new approach to high-speed production line performance ahead of this year’s interpack in Düsseldorf, Germany. Comprising a brand new high performance vertical packaging system, high-speed multi-head scale and the world’s fastest case packer for flexible bags, tna performance 5.0 gives food manufacturers the innovation and efficiency they need to double their output thanks to ultra-high speed equipment, advanced equipment integration and intuitively designed, self-learning technology. As a result, customers can maximise their production flexibility with faster changeovers and more product capabilities in a single system. tna’s performance 5.0 will set new industry standards and enable food manufacturers to take their productivity to the next level.

“Tna performance 5.0 is about a lot more than just individual product innovations,” comments Alf Taylor, CEO and co-founder of tna. “It’s our vision for the future of food manufacturing. For us, the key to long-term commercial success is to rethink the conventional and invest in technology that sets new benchmarks and doesn’t just meet current industry expectations. Our ultimate goal is therefore to equip today’s food manufacturers with technology that is capable of the highest speeds as well as continuous improvement, so they’re ready for the next stage of food production. That way, their equipment won’t just meet the requirements of today, but will also easily adapt to their future needs. We’re extremely proud of how far we’ve come until now and cannot wait to demonstrate at this year’s interpack just how much further we can take the industry!”

Central to tna performance 5.0 will be the introduction of the world’s fastest case packer for flexible bags. Capable of speeds of up to 300 bags per minute (bpm), the new tna ropac 5 will be officially unveiled at interpack in May. The release will then be followed by the launch of the tnarobag® 5, the latest generation of tna’s flagship vertical form, fill and seal (VFFS) packaging system at Pack Expo later that year.

“At tna, we’ve always preferred disruptive innovation over incremental improvement or me too solutions,” adds Taylor. “Back in 1984, when tnareleased the original robag 1 VFFS packaging system with continuous rotary motion jaws, the industry saw packaging speeds leap from 50 bags per minute to an incredible 100 bags per minute overnight. tna performance 5.0 will be just as revolutionary. By combining our expertise in equipment integration with our passion for innovation, we’ve been able to develop a new range of ultra-high speed solutions that cover everything from weighing to packaging – all the way through to case packing. Together with tna’s complete portfolio of high-performance food processing solutions, these new innovations will allow food manufacturers to take their production line performance to unprecedented levels.”

tna will present its new approach to ultra-high speed production line performance at the world’s largest packaging fair, interpack. Visitors to hall 15, booth B22 will be invited to experience tna’s cutting-edge equipment designs for the food manufacturing industry with the help of augmented and virtual reality. This will include everything from tna’s cost-efficient steam peelers and high performance fryers to its gentle distribution, accurate seasoning, precise weighing and high-speed packaging solutions. Using the latest in virtual and augmented reality, visitors will get the unique opportunity to fully immerse themselves into the production process of a complete potato chip line – from start to finish, creating a truly impactful virtual experience.
