Wyke Farms select stretch wrapper from Atlanta

Wyke Farms have teamed up with Atlanta Packaging to supply a pallet handling and wrapping system in their Somerset factory.

The total scope of supply includes pallet conveyors, robot palletising units, pallet wrapping and then automated pallet storage.

Due to the layout of the palletising cell it was not possible to have a wrapper with the standard, integrated control panel so Atlanta were able to supply the wrapper with a remote operator panel - about 8 metres away from the machine. Atlanta were also able to offer the pallet wrapper painted in the same colours as the pallet conveyors making the whole installation look as well as operate as a complete unit.

The automatic pallet stretch wrapper is the model Mytho A which uses the unique screw jack principle to raise and lower the film carriage.

Whilst not required on this application, the Mytho A pallet stretch wrapper range can be equipped with a top sheet applicator if required, as shown in the alternative image.

All machine parameters are adjustable, including, table rotation speed, bottom rounds, top rounds, speed up and speed down. The film carriage is equipped with power pre stretch film rollers to maximise the film yield per roll as well as increase load containment and improve the aesthetics of the wrapped load. To prevent unsightly film tails at the end of the cycle, the unit is equipped with a film tail welding unit.
