tna stand 3917, EXPO PACK 2014, Centro Banamex, Mexico City, June 17-20 2014 Leading global food packaging specialist, tna, will demonstrate its flagship high performance seasoning, bagging and conveying solutions at this year’s EXPO PACK in Mexico City

June 3 2014

tna will demonstrate its seasoning, bagging and conveying solutions at this year’s EXPO PACK in Mexico City.

Experts will present the latest tna intelli-flav OMS 5 seasoning system, the tna robag FX 3ci high speed vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) bagger and the tna roflo HM 3 conveyor, as well as highlighting the benefits that tna’s recent acquisition of FOODesign can bring to its customers.

Alongside its existing portfolio of packaging, seasoning and distribution solutions, tna now offers a variety of FOODesign’s world leading fryers and cookers, including batch fryers, continuous fryers, baking and toasting ovens, and speciality roasting equipment. These systems are suitable for use across a wide variety of applications including meat, poultry, seafood, bakery, confectionery and snack foods.

Visitors to EXPO PACK will be able to experience the latest evolution of tna’s leading intelli-flav seasoning range, the tna intelli-flav OMS 5. Delivering the ultimate flexibility in on-machine seasoning (OMS) applications, the tna intelli-flav OMS 5 offers consistent coverage and flavour for both wet and dry seasoning. Fully integrated with both oil spray and flavour injection systems, tna’s OMS system provides total control of adhesion and fast flavour changes for snack lines. Further performance benefits are achieved through the enhanced position of the scarfplate within the drum. With the scarfplate optimally positioned in-line with the drum flights, the resulting seasoning curtain falls consistently and evenly onto the tumbling product, providing high quality seasoning performance. Additionally, the newly designed scalloped infeed conveyor allows more product to enter the seasoning drum, while also helping to control product direction for greater accuracy and reduced waste.

Also on-stand will be the tna robag FX 3ci high speed VFFS packaging machine, which offers unmatched throughput rates of up to 150bpm for applications such as potato chips, and is suitable for high volumes of a wide variety of other products. With the addition of the tna intelli-weigh 0314 omega multi-head scale, tna hyper-detect metal detector and tna flo-thru former, the tna robag FX 3ci can provide manufacturers with up to 30 per cent improvement in performance.

Finally, tna’s experts will also present the company’s innovative horizontal motion conveyor, the tna roflo HM 3. This conveyor benefits from total control of speed and direction to ensure optimal performance, and smoothly distributes goods to minimise losses and breakages. Particularly suited to heavy coated products, as seasoning does not build up on the pans, the tna roflo HM 3 has an easy-to-clean design to ensure that manufacturers comply with strict HACCP and QA standards, deliver the highest quality products and reduce waste.

In addition to its packaging innovations, tna will highlight its controls system expertise, demonstrating how it supports manufacturers in design, installation and integration to maximise productivity and maintain food safety, quality and traceability. tna offer a wide range of production line control and data acquisition systems, as well as additional options for SCADA, operator interfaces, network systems, spare parts, and remote support. The company’s specialist control and integration solutions can target a variety of inefficiencies, such as poor product quality, material wastage or unsustainable processes.
