New Ct10 - Shaping Tea Naturally

Long leaf tea and herbs are ideally suited to the  perfectly shaped tetrahedral see-through bag which guarantees stability,  perfect product integrity and optimum infusion efficiency.

The new CT10 machine for tetrahedral filter bags encompasses the highest level of currently available technology  in a complete line with an exceptionally reduced foot-print.

IMA offers the perfect high speed solution – 300 bags per minute – to the demand for long leaf tea and herbs packaging, reinventing a tetrahedral bag with string and tag that guarantees product integrity for optimum infusion efficiency.

Taking advantage of the shape, and its stability, the bag allows tea leaves more room to move and infuse for a better brew.

The CT10 offers the possibility to run both woven and non-woven filter bag materials enhancing their transparency features and resulting in a see-through filter bag able to highlight the natural form of tea and herbs.

Respecting IMA’s traditional standards, the CT10 has been designed as a complete packaging line producing a high quality product complete with  the final packaging into cartons.

The elegant tetrahedral bag dictates a top quality carton style and for this reason the CT10 cartoning attachment produces stylish  reclosable caddy cartons which  remain intact after opening and are completely ideal for personalization.

The whole working cycle logic and quality control are achieved by a PLC. All main machine stations have been provided with a specific product control device to guarantee maximum product quality. All main functions can be easily controlled by the operator on the push-button panel. Production efficiency is at the highest level as most of the controls do not stop the machine but automatically reject the faulty product (single filter bag or carton).
