CLAMP WITH PAD

Standard clamp equipped with a system for cutting the film through a hot wire.

overview

Thanks to the rotating arm technology, film application and load stabilization are carried out with pallet stopped thus avoiding any risk of load falling, regardless of the arm rotation speed.

The modularity of the units composing it results in wide versatility of use, even with large pallets up to 1900x1900 mm (75x75 inches).

option & data sheet

PGSA - CUBE TECHNOLOGY L.1 - VARIABLE PRE-STRETCH CARRIAGE

Pre-stretch carriage with double independent motorization, which allows to set pre-stretch ratio of the film from the control panel, with a 100% - 400% range and control system through inverter.

The standard carriage is equipped with a 500 mm/20" film reel height; optional carriage can be equipped with a 750 mm/30" film reel height.

Containment force with reactive software system based on CUBE TECHNOLOGYTM Level 1, using a load cell.
Pre-stretch and containment force can be set up to 12 different levels inside each wrapping program, with simple adjustments on the HMI

PGSA - CUBE TECHNOLOGY L.1 - VARIABLE PRE-STRETCH CARRIAGE

SCSP/2 - CUBE TECHNOLOGY L.2 - VARIABLE PRE-STRETCH CARRIAGE

Pre-stretch carriage with double motorisation SSC independent, which allows the stretch film to be pre-stretched from the control panel, with a 0% - 400% range and with control system through inverter.
It is possible to apply up to 12 containment force values on the pallet.
 
The standard carriage is equipped with a 500/20" mm film reel height; optional carriage can be equipped with a 750/30" mm film reel height.

The adjustment of the containment force on the pallet is controlled by a PROACTIVE system based on the CUBE TECHNOLOGYTM Level 2.
EXACTLY the right amount of film EXACTLY in the correct position with EXACTLY the proper containment force

HOT PLATES SEALER

Hot plates device to fix the final edge of the film on the second-last wrap using heat.
The film is cut by an hot wire

The sealing plates are mounted on springs to adapt to the surface of the product, and the sealing time can be set from the HMI panel.

HOT PLATES SEALER

EVO SPRING CLAMP

Optional system for clamping, cutting and sealing the film, which occurs without contact with the product.
 
The device works through spring steel (ROBOPAC SYSTEMS patent), with a proportional reduction of the film band. It also include an air blower device to seal the initial edge of the film within the wrapping.
The device is specifically designed to guarantee perfect finishing of the end edge of the film by electronically controlled impulse sealing on constant film thickness.
The final sealing of the film takes place on a mechanical support, accurately avoiding direct contact with the product.

Also available in the version with fixed spring clamp and with horizontal movement to handle various pallet width and for low profile conveyors.
EVO SPRING CLAMP

NIP&TUCK CLAMP

Optional device for clamping, cutting and threading the film without sealer.

The last tail of the wrapping film is inserted into the second-last wrap.

NIP&TUCK CLAMP

VERTICAL PRESSURE PLATEN

Device for pallet retaining system that apply a vertical force on the pallet during the wrapping cycle, to keep it more stable during wrapping operations.
Used with particularly unstable loads and the upper covering systems (Top Inside/Top Outside).

Available in versions with mechanical movement by means of pantograph system or pneumatic drive.

VERTICAL PRESSURE PLATEN

TOP INSIDE COVER DEVICE

Automatic system integrated in the structure of the machine for covering the upper surface of the pallet.

Allows a waterproof or dustproof protection of the load.

Horizontal movement realized using timing belt.

The reel is positioned at floor level on dedicated support to facilitate loading operations.

TOP INSIDE COVER DEVICE

TOP OUTSIDE COVER DEVICE

Automatic system for covering the upper surface of the pallet against dust.

It's an independent structure placed outside the machine, normally installed on the conveyor before wrapper position.

The top of the pallet is covered with the pallet in motion.

The device has electrical system integrated with the wrapping machine.

An electrical crane system (optional) is fixed on the top structure for easier reel replacement.

TOP OUTSIDE COVER DEVICE

ROPING DEVICE

Optional system to reduce the width of the film to a "rope" and ensure a more effective stabilisation of the load.

Available in 3 versions:

ROPING FROM BOTTOM

Reduce the film bandwidth from the bottom, creating a small rope that is applied at the level of wood axis of the pallet, while the remain part of film not roped is applied on product. 

ROPING FROM TOP

Reduce the film bandwidth from top to bottom, to create a complete rope that is normally applied at  the level of wood axis of the pallet.

The pallet is wrapped from the bottom up to its top with open band film. The film band is then narrowed from the top along its entire length to create a "rope" and applying the cord in a spiral down to the bottom. The final part of the cycle is carried out with open film.

ATTENTION: this operation involves the "cord" being placed on the product. If the product or its packaging is delicate they could be damaged.

ROPING WITH DOUBLE MOVEMENT

The cycle consists in wrapping the pallet from the bottom up to its top with film in open band to then narrow it from the top downwards forming a double "rope". The final part of the cycle is carried out with open film. The narrowing movements of the film band can be independent or synchronised with each other.

ATTENTION: this operation involves the "cord" being placed on the product. If the product or its packaging is delicate they could be damaged.

 

ROPING DEVICE

EASY LOCK

Device to push down the film during the application of wraps on the bottom of the pallet, avoiding the needs of the pallet lifter.

It consists of a tilting roller, operated by an electrical motor. Tilting angle adjustable via HMI.

EASY LOCK

CENTER MACHINE PALLET LIFTER

Device to lift up the pallet in order to allow the wrapping of the wooden pallet.

It is normally used in combination with roping device to guarantee the maximum stability of the load

Available with pneumatic or hydraulic drive.

It is located under the central machine conveyor.

CENTER MACHINE PALLET LIFTER

VCA - CORNER APPLICATOR

Automatic corner applicator device for the protection of the pallet corners.

It consists of vertical storages combined with vaccum grippers and moving hands.

Thanks to a special control system (ROBOPAC patent) the vacuum grippers are able to "locate" in a fully automatic way the corners of the pallet, without any manual setting or adjustment.

VCA - CORNER APPLICATOR

RCONNECT

Device for controlling, collecting, processing and filing large amounts of data from installed machines. Through a dedicated access-controlled portal, accessible from PCs or any portable device, you can connect to all machines equipped with the Rconnect system and monitor their performance 24/7.

- Monitor your performance
- Improve your efficiency
- Detect and inspect your line failures
- Remote assistance in private connection without need of company LAN
