Dairy & Ice Cream

Tekkra is a leading developer of shrink wrapping and bundling systems for ice cream and dairy products. In the dairy industry, Tekkra has developed specific integrated packaging systems to ensure that products, such as ice cream, frozen goods, and chilled dairy products, remain intact throughout shipping, distribution, and stocking.

Packaging ice cream products requires gentle handling and wrapping. Keeping frozen products from melting, spilling, or leaking is vital in the dairy industry. At Tekkra, a team of experts provides advanced solutions and incorporates the latest technologies to meet strict consumer demands. Robust methodologies are utilizes to keep shrink wrapping solutions efficient and reliable without sacrificing time consuming maintenance. Dairy Industry machinery is compact to preserve floor space. The heavy duty stainless steel tubular frame design ensures high quality production and durability. And for added security, the dairy industry systems incorporate stainless steel mesh metal framed guard doors.

The intermittent motion bundling and shrink wrapping systems are specifically designed to handle unsupported and unstable dairy products. The Side Infeed Multi-Packer 200 Series is ideal for use in the dairy industry. This system features durable, reliable, and structurally sound machinery designed for packing ice cream and other dairy products with speed, precision, and gentle handling.

As ice cream products are being transported through the dairy machinery, operators experience ease of use and accessibility. Dairy industry systems include maintenance accessibility throughout and ergonomic, quick change powered fill cradles as well as optional discharge systems with a “hot melt” glue system, 90 degree transfers, conveyor extensions, and more.

Features on the ice cream system include the Allen Bradley PLC and Operator interface. This technology is user friendly and helps operators quickly package dairy products. Additional features include a servo driven seal assembly, servo driven main ram for product control, and the Nema four-time electrical package.

To keep dairy products safe and secure as they are being packaged, Tekkra has incorporated a tunnel discharge cooling station for fast film curing. Collation systems are available as add-on features and include lane dividers, stackers, feed screws, and pick and place systems.

Tekkra specializes in turn-key solutions for bundling and shrink wrapping, collation, labeling, case packing, and palletizing. It is vital for dairy products to be cautiously shrink wrapped and case packed without damaging the packaging units. Ice cream can be handled with special robotic tools from Tekkra to promote gentle use and product integrity.

The 300 Series machinery is also used for ice cream cartons. This system sends ice cream cartons along a single lane to be divided into multiple lanes for quick bundling. Once bundled, products are wrapped and operators can remove them from the machine.

Dairy products have unique requirements for packaging and labeling. To protect the integrity of the product during production, Tekkra has designed specific dairy industry systems. Each system keeps product temperatures in mind as products are bundled and wrapped without sacrificing product stability.
