tna will present its ultra-high speed case packer for flexible bags – the tna ropac® 5 as its main highlight amongst the wide range of innovative packaging and processing solutions, at this year’s Gulfood Manufacturing in Dubai.

“Food consumption in the GCC countries is expected to grow between 3 to 4 per cent annually over the next few years due to the region’s ongoing rise in population and increasing disposable incomes,” comments Mukul Shukla, general manager – tna Middle East. “A lot of food manufacturers are therefore looking for a partner that can help them improve production efficiencies to meet this demand, widen their product portfolio to cater for new tastes or improve traceability to adhere to stricter food quality and safety standards. Thanks to our immense growth over the last 35 years we now offer one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking portfolios on the market. Whether manufacturers are looking to speed up their packaging line, expand their snack flavours or boost the output of their French fry business, our cutting-edge technology covers all their processing and packaging needs.”

Part of tna’s performance 5.0, a revolutionary new approach to high-speed production line performance, the tna ropac 5 is capable of up to 300 bags per minute, making it the world’s fastest case packer for flexible bags. In combination with the company’s flagship tna robag® high-speed VFFS packaging system, the new tna ropac 5 offers food manufacturers unprecedented levels of throughput, exceptional equipment reliability and one of the smallest machine footprints. Visitors will be able to get a first-hand experience of the extraordinary speeds of these two packaging systems and find out how they can take their production line performance to the next level.

In addition to showcasing its world-class packaging credentials, tna will also display some of its most advanced distribution, inserting and labelling, cooling and seasoning technology. As part of this, tna will demonstrate how the patented “switcheroo” bi-directional functionality of its tna roflo® range of horizontal and vibratory conveyors delivers the ultimate in flexibility by enabling manufacturers to use a single lane where other technologies require two rows of conveyors. Further innovation includes the tna intelli-flav® OMS 5 seasoning system, which can provide both powder flavouring and liquid oil in a single drum and a brand new chip sizer, which is due to be unveiled at the show.

tna is a leading global supplier of integrated food processing and packaging solutions with equipment ranging from cookers, roasters and fryers, confectionery moguls, conveyors, seasoning and coating systems, cooling and freezing technology, baggers and scales, metal detectors, inserters and labellers, controls systems and case packers.

They will be available at booth #A4-36.
