Machine with automatic features

A well known aluminium can manufacturer in Wiltshire now boasts a pallet stretch wrapping machine with automatic film grab and cut off complete with film tail welding. The customer had demanded a higher level of automation than a standard semi automatic could provide but did not have the space for conveyorised automation. Atlanta Packaging UK provided the answer with a Mytho Auto PS.

Mytho Auto

Mark Tucker explains "For this project we had a 10 page specification which dictated the exact wrapping requirements for this client. The standard Mytho could complete the wrapping section without problems but we had to move to the Auto version to have a machine which automatically grabbed the film at the end of the cycle, cut it off, then welded the film tail to the load."

In addition to the film grab/cut/weld the machine is also equipped with a film roping facility. This means that the film web is reduced to a thin "rope" at the end of the wrapping cycle to better secure the load to the pallet. "This is very important for load containment when the weight of the products being wrapped are light and sensitive to crushing" continued Mr Tucker.

As standard the Mytho PS comes with the facility to store 99 discrete wrapping styles, bi-motor step-less pre stretch up to 350%, automatic re-enforcing band at any point on the load, top sheet cycle, variable film tension and film pre stretch throughout the load. Altogether there are almost 40 adjustable parameters making this the most configurable wrapper on the market - having said that, the icon driven menu is easily understood and operators find it a breeze to work with.

The machine has been on site over a year now and the customer is delighted with the result.
