IGS2-iT tying machine

The tying machine for single tying of sausage-shaped products in natural and collagen casing.

The Handtmann Inotec IGS2-iT offers portioning and single tying of sausage products in natural casing and collagen casing in the small to medium calibre range. The products are reliably tied at a high output with individually adjustable spacing, accurate to length and weight. The products satisfy mega trends such as “like handmade” and “sustainably produced”, as they entirely eliminate the use of metal clips.

Handtmann Inotec IGS2-iT

For a variety of products in natural casing

The IGS2-iT is optimally suited for the reliable tying of sausage products in the calibre range of 28 to 45 mm. The slight “overfill” creates nice, well-filled products with a bite. Delicate products in natural casing are gently and safely tied. The indentation created by the longitudinal twine produces the classic and sales-promoting quality feature of “handmade”. A wide range of tying variations, optionally with or without hanging loops and a supplementary twine offer a large scope for design. Typical products can be found all over the world, such as the German Regensburger, the Russian Sardelki, the Turkish Sucuk or the Czech Špekáčky.

High output and cost reduction through savings on casing

The IGS2-iT tying machine delivers a high effective production output of up to 280 tyings per minute, verifiably recorded by the productivity counter. A swivelling filling tube facilitates casing spooling, as does an optional casing spooling device and an optimally accessible casing magazine. The large Inotec twine rolls reduce changeovers to a minimum. The excellent weight accuracy per portion and narrow product spacing with up to 40 % savings on casing compared to clips significantly reduce production costs.

Easy operation and optimum level of hygiene 

The IGS2-iT is easy to operate and can be controlled intuitively via the touch control. It can be modularly integrated into automation processes, for example into the PTH line with automatic product hanging. Product changes with changed calibre, spacing and tying parameters are executed without the need for tools. In case of lack of twine or casing, the machine switches off automatically and rejects are prevented. Full-pressure tying prevents filling product residues at the tying point and thus guarantees hygienically flawless production, as does the CE-compliant stainless steel design.
