Snacks producer and co-packer Keystone Food Products recently expanded its production capabilities by installing a new start-to-finish packaging system from tna, a supplier of food packaging and processing solutions.
According to tna, Keystone needed a flexible, high-performance packaging solution that could be integrated into its existing production line and handle smaller bags in response to growing consumer demand for new package sizes.
Keystone installed the tna robag® FX 3ci at its Easton, Pennsylvania site. According to tna, the turnkey packaging system significantly increased the speed and precision of Keystone’s production, improving performance up to 30 percent in both output and reduction of rejects.
tna worked closely with Keystone to install the packaging solution. The machinery company provided additional products to work with the new packaging system: the intelli-weigh® omega 314 weighing system, the intelli-read® 3 barcode scanner, the intelli air® distribution system and the hyper-detect® metal detector.
Bill Corriere, chief executive officer at Keystone Food Products, said, “We’re extremely satisfied with the equipment that tna has provided us and are confident that these systems will play a critical role in driving our business forward.”
