TNA has launched the Triple Jaw version of its Robag 3 Rotary Jaw system. This new Triple Jaw boasts greater performance (speeds in excess of 220 bags per minute), is more efficient (wastage rates of less than 1%), and is more flexible (widest range of bag widths).
The Triple Jaw version of the ROBAG 3 was recently exhibited at Pack Expo International, Chicago.
TNA North America was able to pack 102mm wide bags of candy and snacks, at speeds in excess of 200 bags a minute.
TNA already has a Rotary Double Jaw version of the ROBAG 3, packing bags of Mini Pretzels at speeds exceeding 180 bags a minute in a "real life" production facility at Snyder's of Hanover, Inc., PA - still with low wastage rates.
Also on show for the first time was the new "Gate-Less" ROFLO distribution system.
This new product discharge system - "Gate-Less" ROFLO - eliminates product breakage, maintenance, breakdown and cleaning, all whilst still using servo driven, simple mechanics.
TNA's innovative design of ROFLO offers many advantages, such as the way it handles products - it doesn't shake, rattle or bounce product whilst transporting it across the factory.
ROFLO is fully servo driven, enabling smooth, accurate control over the products being distributed to the packaging systems - product flow can even be reversed.
