LIVE: PERFECTA FAMILY SIZE for XL tea bags

At the Gulfood Manufacturing in Dubai TEEPACK presents one of the newest member of their machine portfolio: PERFECTA FAMILY SIZE. The machine has been designed to fill double-chamber tea bags with up to 22cm2 filling volume. This makes it an ideal partner for the packaging of XL tea bags with thread and cardboard tag. 

Using the PERFECTA FAMILY SIZE tea producers will be able to fill double-chamber tea bags with up to seven grams of black tea reaching a production output of up to 250 bags per minute – no matter if they are focused on classic hot tea specialties or on fashionable ice teas. 

PERFECTA FAMILY SIZE is suited for bags with non-heat seal filter paper and a variety of tag sizes. It features all the advantages of other PERFECTA family members, including superior safety standards and quick format changes. The machine provides the opportunity tea bags to be produced either with a stapled or a knotted thread. A reversible configuration from stapling to knotting or vice versa is subsequently possible. 

The knotting unit allows fixing the thread directly at the bag. With TEEPACK’s latest knotting technology the bag head is reliably secured by two needle stitches. The knot is self-tightening and consequently cannot get loose. The advantage: the top edge of the bag and the space between the holes can be easily adjusted to customer’s requirements. The PERFECTA FAMILY SIZE is an ideal solution for tea packaging due to its low maintenance, reduced spare parts requirements and an easy to operate design.
