With the introduction of its model TF-100 at Pack Expo 2014, IPak demonstrated that advanced technology and high quality, aesthetically pleasing tray packages can be compressed into limited floor space.

The TF-100—IPak’s smallest footprint servobased machine yet— is 56% smaller than the firm’s TF-200 model. Among its other features are the ability to handle non-rectangular blanks, a Nordson Liberty melt on demand glue system, product changeovers in less than 10 minutes, and servo-driven components. IPak’s precise servos allow greater control of speed, monitoring, diagnostics, and sequence programming.

The TF-100 is ideally suited for customers who have limited manufacturing space and need to produce 25-35 high quality, well-formed trays per minute. Customers with vibrant graphics or those stepping up their tray design to thin corrugate in E-Flute or B-Flute designs can also benefit from the TF-100’s flexibility and precision in forming strong, well bonded trays. Customer applications include snack foods, desserts, craft beverages, and candies, among others.

“The TF-100 packs advanced features and technology in an incredibly small machine,” said Dyrl Nixon, IPak product manager. “The TF-100 delivers unequaled efficiency, performance, ease of use, and investment value in a size that fits almost any production environment.”
