AcmaVolpak: New solution for packaging tea in filter bags
NEW AT INTERPACK—Designed and manufactured by Tecnomeccanica – our brand dedicated to the tea market – T4 Modula is AcmaVolpak’s new, medium-speed, tea bag machine.
It consists in a double chamber “knotted” packaging solution, particularly appreciated in worldwide markets as it guarantees users with the highest product authenticity and aroma. In addition to its performance in line with its category (T4 can package up to 250 bags per minute), this new solution by AcmaVolpak is particularly advanced in terms of sustainability and materials saving. The tea bag packaged by T4, which could be defined within the most beautiful in the world, is produced in non heat-sealed filter paper, it is 100% biodegradable and is closed without using any metal staple in order to better preserve the genuineness of its content. An octagonal tag is placed on the front of the bag, while the string is attached underneath; these features make the tea bag aesthetically more pleasant and optimise brand visibility, thus supporting the customer’s marketing strategies.
In 2014, to enlarge its offer in tea packaging, AcmaVolpak has launched a new version of T2 for high-speed single chamber packaging, which can use biodegradable paper, too. The latest version of T2 is available also in full leaf tea packaging configuration; this will meet the demand of more “traditional” customers who generally prefer a non-sifted product, orienting them towards tea bags. To give further evidence of the flexibility of AcmaVolpack’s machines, T2 can produce “bag in bag” packages, particularly appreciated in emerging markets as they allow customers to choose multipack tea bags.
