TNA Debuts VFFS Packaging System with Labeler and Inserter
Sydney, Australia-headquartered TNA Packaging & Processing Solutions launched a new VFFS (vertical form fill seal) packaging system with fully integrated labeler and inserter at the November 6-9 Pack Expo in Chicago. The company says this makes it the only manufacturer in the world that offers a completely integrated turnkey packaging system.
Available as part of the TNA’s flagship robag packaging system, the 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 robag, the inserter and labeler marketed under TNA’s Unique Solutions brand do not require any additional floor space and are easily configured and controlled by touch screen. This allows for a simple setup and complete ease of operation. Depending on the size of the label/insert, the integrated equipment delivers speeds of over 450 labels and 500 inserts per minute.
“Thanks to our acquisition of Unique Solutions, we now offer customers a whole new range of tools to help distinguish their products in the market,” said Managing Director Michael Green. “Whether they want to insert small sachets of complimentary sauces or extra seasoning to provide an extra flavor boost, or include promotional items such as coupons, game pieces or small collectibles into their packaging, the possibilities to add extra value to your product are practically endless.”
He added: “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.”
Acquired in November of 2015, Unique Solutions is a leading provider of inserting and labeling technology. It now forms part of TNA’s complete portfolio of integrated processing and packaging solutions.
