Emrich Packaging Machinery, tna and Swiss Pack will all exhibit their wares at AUSPACK PLUS 2013 in May.

Australian packaging solutions company tna will unveil its new tna robagFX 3ci high speed vertical form fill and seal packaging machine, which provides up to a 30 percent improvement in output.

"The robaFX also allows a reduction in rejects and achieves unprecedented throughput rates of up to 150 bpm (boxes per minute)," tna Australia General Manager
Luigi di Palma says.

"Visitors will also experience our innovative seasoning system, the tna intelli-flavOMS 3c."

di Palma says the tna intelli-flavOMS 3c is a one-piece solution for both wet and dry seasoning and flavouring which delivers exceptional performance and provides even coverage at throughput rates of 100 – 500 g per hour for a wide variety of applications.

Technical experts will also be on-stand to demonstrate the tna rofloHM 3 horizontal motion conveyor, which smoothly distributes goods to minimise losses and breakages and deliver the highest quality end products.

"We will also be showcasing our controls and integration expertise, demonstrating how our electrical and control system integration solutions can help manufacturers achieve optimum performance in their production lines by reducing inefficiencies and maximising output," di Palma says.

Emrich Packaging Machinery will exhibit a wide range of equipment including the PFM ZC1 integrated multi-head weigher and bagging machine and the Adco 15D105 horizontal hand load cartoner.

Designed for mid-speed duties up to 80 bags per minute, the PFM ZC1 targets products such as snacks, confectionery, pet-food, granular products, biscuits and pasta.

The ZCI meets the need for an inexpensive system that nevertheless offers a high degree of flexibility, accuracy and is simple to use.

The absence of a gantry reduces cost and machine footprint compared with conventional systems while the compact nature of the unit also allows elevators and other support equipment to be downsized for further savings in capital.

The Adco 15D105 horizontal hand load cartoner is designed for easy conversion to a fully automatic barrel cam machine and available to run in either continuous and intermittent mode, while the 15D105 delivers class-leading carton erecting performance and flexibility in a compact and economical package.

Fast changeover, simple operation and clean design make the 15D105 ideal for the most demanding production environments.

All ADCO machines are constructed in stainless steel and available in standard and washdown configurations.

Following a very successful AUSPACK PLUS in 2011 Swiss Pack will be heading to Sydney to showcase its new product line of machines.

In the past Swiss Pack concentrated mainly on packaging materials; however the company has now branched out into packaging machines.

"In addition our expertise with the associated technical materials such as films, pouches and boxes means that we can offer a true end-to-end solution," says General Manager Flexible Division Brendan Yee.

"Swiss Pack is now able to design, install and service various packaging machinery."

Swiss Pack packaging machines are suitable for all solids, liquids and powders - such as: VFFS, Mini pouch packing machines, coffee packing machines, flow wrappers, shrink tunnels, rotary pouch packing machines, and carton packaging solutions.

The Swiss Pack range of materials is extensive and covers both flexible and rigid packaging types such as: pre-formed pouches, flat bottom box pouches, printed rewind, shrink sleeves, woven PP bags, printed cardboard boxes, buckets and pails and custom moulding jars and containers.

Auspack visitors can expect to see over 1100 brands and 270 exhibitors, including 68 internationals, all under one roof.

AUSPACK PLUS 2013 will be held at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park
May 7-10,
2013.

AUSPACK PLUS is owned and presented by the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), Australia’s only national packaging and processing machinery organisation.
