Whole muscle packaging

The TN4200 whole muscle packaging system from Tipper Tie Inc. has added dynamic features

Apex, N.C. – The TN4200 whole muscle packaging system from Tipper Tie Inc. has added dynamic features compared to the successful TN4001.

The TN4200 has a noticeably longer 812 mm (32 inch) breech enabling it to handle larger and longer TipperTieTN4200285x165products like boneless hams, loins, steaks, whole muscle deli slices and more.

The company says the system’s unique servo-powered breech presses large products and changes their shapes to fit the casing or netting. Compression creates immediate processing benefits like improved cooking and slicing yields due to more uniform product shape and diameter.  Finished packaging inventory mix can also be rationalized because fewer package sizes are needed.

Tipper Tie says the TN4200 is the first and only whole muscle system with a servo-driven pushing unit. It is fast acting, and can provide a degree of control and product consistency unachievable with a pneumatic system, and it can reduce overall maintenance costs due to fewer wear parts.

After the meat is compressed in the servo breech the pusher starts. Each of three critical process phases – initial push, main travel, and final push – can be programmed to the needs of the application, their speeds and motions precisely controlled and continuously repeated. With a single operator the TN4200 can package eight pieces per minute or more and uses the same reliable clipper and voider design as the proven RS series.
