tna Launches First Ever High-speed VFFS Packaging System with Integrated Labeller and Inserter at Pack Expo
” Leading food processing and packaging systems provider tna becomes first supplier to offer a fully integrated turnkey packaging solution “
Chicago, United States, 7 November 2016 – tna has launched the first ever VFFS packaging system with fully integrated labeller and inserter, making it the only manufacturer in the world that offers a completely integrated turnkey packaging system. Available as part of tna’s flagship robag® packaging system, the patented labelling and inserting technology enables the high-speed application of promotional labels and/or insertion of value-added two-dimensional items, such as coupons, and three-dimensional items like toys or dry or liquid-filled sachets into primary packaging.
Directly mounted onto the tna robag, the inserter and labeller from tna’s Unique Solutions brand do not require any additional floor space and are easily configured and controlled via the tna robag control screen. This allows for a simple setup and complete ease of operation. Depending on the size of the label/insert, the integrated equipment delivers unprecedented speeds of over 450 labels and 500 inserts per minute, offering customers the highest level of performance in a single packaging system.
“Creativity and innovation are key if you want to stay ahead in today’s market, “comments Michael Green, managing director at tna. “Thanks to our recent acquisition of Unique Solutions, we now offer our customers a whole new range of tools to help distinguish their products in the market. Whether they want to include promotional items such as coupons, game pieces or small collectibles into their packaging, or insert small sachets of complimentary sauces or extra seasoning to provide an extra flavour boost, the possibilities to add extra value to your product are practically endless.”
Green further adds: “We’ve always been committed to support our customers with complete turnkey systems and for the first time our engineers were able to achieve a full hardware and software integration of this type of equipment into a high-speed VFFS packaging system.
