September 2016, Meerbusch, Germany – German tea packaging specialist Teepack will showcase the latest addition to its COMPACTA HS machine at Gulfood Manufacturing in Dubai from November 7 to 9, 2016 (Booth C2 – 34, in the German pavilion). The machine, which produces and packages double-chamber tea bags in heat-sealable foils, features an enhanced knotting unit to tighten the thread at the bag. The new system reduces the amount of machine parts needed and ensures an efficient production process.
The COMPACTA produces naked double chamber tea bags including thread and tag. The natural tea aroma remains untouched, since natural filter paper is used – without the need for chemical hot-melt adhesives. The COMPACTA HS module can be seamlessly attached to the basic machine as a “plug-and-produce” system to further package the naked tea bags. The module ensures that the tea bags are reliably packed in heat-sealed three-sided foil in order to protect the taste and aroma of the tea. “Now we have further refined the knotting unit to offer customers an even more efficient packaging solution,” says Roland Delapille
New knotting unit with proven double-stitched knot
At Gulfood Manufacturing, Teepack will exhibit its COMPACTA HS with a new knotting unit. Having reduced the number of mechanical parts in the system, the tea packaging specialist once again proves its future-oriented and customer-focused ingenuity.
At the same time, the COMPACTA HS will continue to use Teepack’s proven double-stitched knot technology to tie the tag to the tea bag. This delivers a highly stable, tight knot, as well as an optically attractive packaging solution. The advantage: no expensive special needle is needed. “With the new knotting unit customers need less spare parts for their machine and are able to reduce maintenance time resulting in lower costs,” explains Roland Delapille. The COMPACTA HS offers an output rate of 230 double chamber tea bags in HS foil per minute, making it a flexible solution for packaging tea in a fast, simple and cost-efficient way. An automatic box filling system can optionally be added to the system to put several sealed tea envelopes into a folding carton.
Anticipating a successful trade fair
Looking back at the successful debut at Gulfood Manufacturing in 2015, Teepack is looking forward to presenting its latest innovations in Dubai this November: “Since the Greater Middle East is one of the biggest growth markets for the food and beverage processing industry, we are keen to show once again our expertise in tea packaging,” says Roland Delapille. “With the latest version of our COMPACTA HS we will demonstrate our commitment to investing in future-ready technological research and development to consistently provide high-class packaging solutions.”
