Automatic splicing of roll-fed material on vertical form/fill/seal equipment was featured at several PACK EXPO booths, including TNA Solutions.

Like so many other exhibitors at PACK EXPO Las Vegas, the folks at TNA are keenly aware of how customers across the board are challenged by the ongoing labor shortage. So they came up with an automated splicing feature for their Robag vertical form/fill/seal system that they unveiled at PACK EXPO.

“Autosplice allows the Robag to continue to operate and automatically switch from the used roll to a new roll of film in less than 30 seconds,” says TNA’s Steven Johnson. “It saves approximately four to six minutes per roll change.” Johnson also notes that the autosplice feature can be retrofit onto existing Robag systems already operating in the field.
