Tetra Pak launches TR/G7 filling machine

Tetra Pak has launched TR/G7, a filling machine which has a capacity of 6500 gable top packages per hour, for chilled distribution.

Developed in collaboration with filling machine producer, Galdi, the machine is designed for extended shelf-life products, including white milk, juice and still drinks, in four package volumes: 250ml, 500ml, 750ml and 1000ml. 

Japan and Europe upgrades

The firm claims the machine, delivered as a single unit, takes up less than 19m2 ​of floor space and cuts electricity consumption by a third. 

Per Lauritzen, VP Carton Gable Top at Tetra Pak, told FoodProductionDaily its strategy was to launch this filling machine now because a number of lines in Japan and Europe are due for an upgrade. 

Small and medium dairies

The machine is suitable for small and medium dairies who are looking for low cost investment, but also for producers that intend to upgrade their existing lines, especially in markets like Europe and Japan​,” he said. 


Economic, demographic and social shifts are moving people to cities, expanding the global middle class. These influences will drive an estimated surge in demand for liquid dairy products (LDP) of 30% to the end of the decade, presenting new challenges and opportunities for the dairy industry​. 

Global demand for white milk and other liquid dairy products (OLDP) is expected to grow to around 350bn litres by 2020​.” 

Lauritzen added the Tetra Rex TRG7 was developed to bridge a gap in Tetra Pak’s portfolio, allowing customers to invest 30% less than the amount needed for traditional lines. 

It delivers a number of benefits, including low cost, with a reduced overall utility consumption of 30%. It is also easy to install, use and maintain, which optimises the number of staff needed and minimises down time​,” he said.
