Automated Whole Bird Packaging System at IFFA 201302 July 2013
GERMANY - TIPPER TIE, Inc. showcased the TTBagH machine at IFFA 2013 in Frankfurt in May 2013.
Renowned for its simple operation, the TTBagH is designed specifically for the poultry industry and has become the leading automated system for packaging whole birds in an efficient and economical way.
A single operator can run up to 15 packages per minute using either plain or pre-padded wicketed bags. The TTBagH opens the bag and the operator inserts the bird. The legs are tightly compressed by the pusher then the bag is gathered. A secure clip closure is applied and the finished package is placed onto a conveyor. All of this is done automatically, enabling the operator to prepare the next bird.
The TTBagH’s automated systems improve ergonomics by eliminating the need for the operator to hock the birds, clip the bags, and dispose of the bag tails.
Consistent, high quality finished packages are ensured through the machine’s leg clamping system, which holds the bird firmly in place during the clipping sequence. The TTBagH system is equipped with a special clipper that uses any of three clips - Z95 series, 100T series, and plastic clips - which apply extra-strong, secure closures and allow for long production runs.
The machine is designed for low maintenance and easy service, and will fit most bag lines. Smooth, stainless surfaces provide quick access to all areas, and inclined horizontal surfaces enable fast, hygienic cleaning.
The TIPPER TIE TTBagH is available with various sized horns and pushers, and a variety of clippers - Z9111, T1111, and SP1111.
TIPPER TIE, Inc., is the worldwide leader in automated clipping systems.
