A sweet packaging decision
Lotte Confectionery, South Korean-based manufacturer of chocolates, biscuits, lollies, chewing gum, ice-cream and snack foods which can be found on shelves right around the world, wanted to update its packaging equipment. Mr S B Kim, technical managing director, said, "We wanted a packaging system that was capable of high speeds, had minimal rejects, could pack a wide range of products and bag sizes and one which would fit into the limited space we had."
Mr Kim added that along with the system provided by TNA, he was also impressed with its level of expertise and willingness to get involved in the project.
To meet current and future demand for its products, Lotte Confectionery has installed four Robag 2Ci's and two Robag 3 packaging machines.
"Both our biscuit and chocolate lines now have increased speeds to 80-90 bags/min; run rates which had been promised and met by TNA," said Mr Kim.
Mr Kim noted that the new system has increased capacity and quality consistency and looks forward to working with TNA gain when additional equipment is required.
The Robag 3 is a vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) system that is suitable for the snack, biscuit, confectionery and general food packaging industries. It enables users to pack products at high speeds with low rejects.
