C28 - Tea bag packaging machine



Low speed double chamber with knotted string and hard tag and NO aluminium staple

Automatic tea bag packaging machine for non heat-sealable double chamber filter bags with knotted string, hard tag but without aluminium staple. IMA gets expressly close to customers’ needs with another brand new machine model based on the revolutionary knot technology, for a high quality, ecological tea bag at lower speed: 180 bags per minute. A small, compact machine that encompasses high technology and simple operation in a versatile, flexible and efficient solution. 

The IMA C28 filter bag is based on a traditional non heat-sealable double chamber bag that guarantees optimum infusion efficiency enabling the natural tea aroma to flow out. Fixing is achieved by two simple knots, one to fix the cotton thread to the top of filter bag and the other to fix the cotton thread to the tag. No metal staple or additional packaging materials are required. This innovative feature avoids the presence of metallic material during infusion, whilst guaranteeing, at the same time, a discerning and functional filter bag.

Despite of the simple machine structure, the C28 offers the possibility to individually wrap the filter bag in either heatsealed or crimped outer envelope guaranteeing the preservation of herbs, flavoured teas and pharmaceutical infusions. To complete the cycle, the C28 can be equipped with a completely automatic cartoning attachment from pre-glued cartons or with a simpler hand removal system for counted bags for manual packaging of bags in pre-formed cartons.
