Nuts and Snacks Packaging Solutions
X-Series VFFS Baggers
The X-Series is the faster, cleaner, smarter packaging solution. Unique features include:
Available in intermittent or continuous motion models, the X-Series VFFS bagging machines include three frame sizes and styles to best meet your application needs. With quick, tool-less changeover of sealing jaws or film rolls, all of our bagging machine models are designed to run multiple package styles and sizes on the same machine. Changeover of forming tubes, film rolls, and sealing jaws is tool-less and quick, allowing nuts and snacks packagers to enjoy less downtime and move more product out the door.
Triangle is the only North American company to not only offer Ultrasonic sealing, but to provide the flexibility to run Ultrasonic or traditional heat sealing on the same bagging machine. A unique, cold sealing technology, Ultrasonic sealing offers many benefits to nuts and snacks packagers, including improved OEE and reduced leakers, as well as labor, material and energy savings.
When it comes to sanitation, Triangle’s X-Series VFFS baggers are second to none. Customers love the open, accessible, easy to clean design. X-Series baggers are available in three levels of sanitation, including stainless steel, stainless steel washdown, and USDA/3A models, with control box ratings from Nema 12 to Nema 4X. In fact, Triangle offers the only vertical form fill seal bagger and forming tube designed to meet strict USDA and 3A sanitation standards.
In-Line Multihead Weighers
Our in-line multihead weighers include Model A612 and Model A918; both offer unique advantages for snack packaging applications. Offering unmatched accuracy, Triangle in-line weighers feature vibration-resistant weigh cells and hand-detachable buckets. An optional dust enclosure keeps powdered or sugary products in check. Additional options include smooth or Rigid-Tex finish to ensure even product flow, as well as product blending systems. Pair the weigher with our X-Series VFFS machine for an integrated snack packaging system that can be run through a single HMI.
Rotary Depositing/Tray Loading Systems
Designed to fill trays or bowls at speeds up to 150 trays per minute, Triangle’s rotary depositor is a tray and bowl loading system that can load a wide variety of products, including confectionery, nuts, snacks and more. With a simple servo setting, speeds can change easily to match line-speed. The tray loader provides precise targeted dumps into small bowls or trays with partitions, and is ideal for hard-to-handle, odd-shaped or sticky products.
The Flex 1 horizontal cartoner is ideal for snack packaging applications and offers quick and simple changeover, compact footprint, and speeds up to 100 cartons per minute. The complete Flex 1 bag-in-box packaging system can include an X-Series VFFS bagger, in-line multihead weigher and bag-in-box, all controlled through a single control box with Rockwell Automation’s ControlLogix.
Product Blending System
Several product blending solutions are available for snack packaging applications with multiple ingredients. Choose from a single bagger and dual scale system or complete recipe blending system that combines multiple in-line multihead weighers, X-Series VFFS bagging machines, and a spout oval depositing system to produce a perfect blend of your products. In fact, we guarantee that each bag will contain every ingredient at a predetermined weight!
