tna solutions (Booth N-24009) will introduce the next iteration of its tna robag series at PACK EXPO 2021, set for Sept. 27-29 in Las Vegas.

“The packaged food market has shifted irrevocably over the past year, with consumers switching up their package size preferences and their favorite format to suit their changing lifestyles,” said Teri Johnson, v.p. – North America. “This fluctuating demand is directly affecting manufacturers’ packaging lines, with more focus than ever on optimising efficiencies and increasing production up-time. Since the start of the pandemic, we have taken even more time to connect with our customers, to seek out answers to their challenges and help open up further opportunities.”

tna invites visitors to experience the evolution of the tna robag series. The latest iteration of the company’s flagship vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) packaging system aims to significantly enhance operational efficiencies and increase production up-time. Experts will be on-hand to talk through how its technological developments can help producers improve their ROI. 

“The theme of this year’s PACK EXPO is innovation, which makes it an ideal platform for launching our new, advanced packaging system,” Johnson said. “We’re excited to be introducing the next level of VFFS packaging with this instalment of the tna robag series – it has the potential to transform lines and save valuable time and costs, which have never been more important to today’s producers.”

tna’s display will also include the “Blue Room” – a fully immersive experience where attendees will discover the company’s enhanced digital offering through live demonstrations.

“We continue to embrace the innovation theme with our new digital service too – a tool specifically designed to enable food manufacturers to boost production efficiency, improve sustainability and transparency, and ultimately, build a more profitable operation,” Johnson said. “And with the food manufacturing sector’s digital transformation only just beginning, we’re excited to share this latest product development with our customers and continue to uncover new ways to meet their changing requirements – wherever they are in the world.”

Visitors will also explore tna’s intelli-flav OMS 5.1 on-machine seasoning system. Offering producers the potential for a more recipe-focused approach to flavoring, the hygienically designed solution is capable of handling powder flavorings and liquid oil together in a single drum. Manufacturers will see first-hand how end-to-end solutions can create great-tasting products that meet consumer expectations – while optimizing the whole line performance.
