Tisma, the US packaging equipment provider, has launched the TC 400 series of vertical cartoners, said to be capable of reaching speeds of up to 750 cartons per minute.
Constructed of stainless steel, the TC 400s are designed for a wide range of cartons sizes and product types, including grains, multiple-count pouches, confectionery, pet food, pasta, golf balls and chewing gum.
As one of the company's most advanced vertical cartoning solutions, the TC 400s can feature the patented Ultra-Track or Memory Track carton filling systems. The Ultra-Track is a high-speed, volumetric cup filler with a design that is said to dramatically increase both cup filling and carton filling dwell times. Ultra-Track systems is also said to significantly reduce lost product and can incorporate multiple fillers to reduce changeover times and maximise output.
The Memory Track is designed to interface with computer combination net weigh scales, providing an integrated, intelligent packaging system. No product/no carton and no carton/no load features are standard, plus out-of-range product weights will be rejected. The company says that these features enable the user to reduce lost product, eliminate damaged or unfilled cartons and to significantly reduce downtime.
The TC 400s also have the ability to form, fill and seal a variety of package types, including both standard and flip-top cartons, plastic containers/dispensers, concave/convex cartons and spiral wound chipboard packages. Integration flexibility allows the machine to operate with various components such as pouch makers, augers, seal spout inserters and various case packing systems.
As part of the SWF group of companies, Tisma provides equipment for the production demands of various industries, particularly those of the food and beverage sector. Located in Illinois, US, it offers an extensive array of horizontal / vertical cartoners and specialty container packaging equipment.
