Automatic horizontal stretch wrapping machines
Automatic horizontal stretch wrapping machines offer a high performance packaging of the products without requiring physical efforts from the employees. The products are driven by the help of belt or roller conveyors which makes the system fully integrable into automatic lines inside production or dispatch areas. The machines are recommanded for high-volume applications where straight or rounded shape products permanently need to be packed and dispatched, as they offer an increased packing speed which saves operating time and labor costs.
The models for straight goods are using adjustable top presses which alternatively fall on and rise from the products, as well as lateral guides for holding light loads, to keep them in their place while being wrapped. The equipment, available in several diameters, allows the wrapping of a wide variety of products, from small items such as mouldings to more bulky products like cupboards or wall panels. These full automatic orbital wrappers are equally suitable for packing slender and very long goods, like shelves, pipes and profiles. The automatic wrapping machines for round products are designed to protect rolls of flexible pipes, cables and tires in a full automatic way. Both wrappimg machine versions additionally hold together and stabilize the goods that need to be packed in bundles.
Some of these versatile orbital wrappers are designed with photocell for product detection. The control panel, provided with touch screen, allows the operator to easily and intuitively manage the settings, choose the customised programs and adjust the rotation speed. The wrapping system is widely used for colored, painted or polished surfaces which require an increased protection during storage and transit.
Automated orbital stretch wrappers also eliminate the need of usig interleaved buffer materials as well other materiala and handling procedures associated with manual packing, which are subject to the operators daily lack of time and work fatigue. These machines decrease the body movements and stretches that are common to hand wrapping and that can often lead to back injuries. At the same time, they can work many hours daily while delivering a constantly high-quality packaging.

Semi-automatic horizontal stretch wrapping machines
Semi-automatic horizontal stretch wrapping machines orbit the stretch film around the products and cover them with foil while they are kept in their place manually, by the operator, to ensure a correct packing. Some of the models, namely the ones designed for round items, require also the hand rotating of the respective products – on the special rotation unit – to enable the wrapping procedure. In case of the semi-automatic orbital stretch wrapping machines for straight products, the goods are placed on linear roller conveyors and only hand guided by the operator to move through the stretch foil
Other models are specifically designed for wrapping cardboard boxes of different sizes. Since cardboard material can get wet or damaged in different ways during transport, the wrapping procedure ensures the protection of the content agaist moisture and other external factors. These motorized wrapping machines allow the operators to pack even 3 or 4 such boxes at a time – stacked one on top of another – for maximum efficiency with minimum effort. They can be provided with roller conveyors in front of or also behind the wrapping small table, which enables the package to easily slide back and forth while being guided by the operator.
The wrapping process is initiated by the operator through stepping on a footbutton or hand-pulling the end of the stretch film and placing it on the cardboard box. After the first complete wrapping, if necessary, the employee can pick up or pull back the package on the conveyor and then turn it over to wrap the package around the width as well. The cardboard boxes wrapping machines are provided with a height-adjustable work table, which ensures a more simple and ergonomic work process. After the packing is finished, the foil can be cut manualy or by special devices.
Spiral wrapping machines reduce manual labor and increase speed and precision inside each packaging process, allowing the staff to perform more tasks in a shorter time and hold the delivery delays to a lowest. Useful options and devices, such as safety footswitch and touch screen with explanatory gifs, enables a fast, durable and reliable packing with stretch film.
Semiautomatic packaging equipment can be designed for any kind of products, from small profiles to tires and large wooden boards. Depending on the products height and width, they are produced in different ring dimensions to better suit each individual application.
The foil is attached to an orbital device that draws a circular motion to extend it and to wrap with it the products while they are advancing on conveyors at a constant speed. Once the stretch film is fixed around the goods, it contracts and encloses the content to maintain the compression untill it will be removed for product usage. The wrapping procedure is thus made in a professional way, which increases the operator efficiency and improves the product presentation.
In case of bundle products, the horizontal stretch wrappers are additionally fixing and compacting the goods to ensure an optimal positioning for shipping. The reeling of the stretch foil over the products is made in an automated way, which elliminates the manual labour of the operators and increases the wrapping speed. Additionaly, due to the pre-tensioning options, this reduces the amount of used foil up to 70% and, consequently, the costs which are associated to the foil material consumption. The wrapping equipment also reduces or eliminates the consumption of other packing of buffer materials such as foam, tapes or straps.
Thanks to the ring dimmensions and a double reel design, orbital wrapping machines allow the wrapping operation for any kind of non-palletised. They are available in several models per type to better suit the different products of various shapes and sizes without further adjustments.
Spiral stretch wrappers are dedicated to a wide variety of working needs and requirements from different industrial sectors, such as kit or assembled furniture, carpets, doors and windows, cardboard boxes and different material planks and panels. They offer the possibility to pack even less regularly shaped products or long items like rods, pipes and profiles, which are often very difficult or time consuming to be wrapped manually.
The smart design of the machines enables a fast accessibility for changing the foil rolls, while the function display provides a user-friendly and flexible control. High-quality materials and robust support frame ensure a low noise and vibration level throughout the operation. Different choice of accessories – such as automatic dispensers for stretch, foam or bubble foils and other types of polyethylene-based films – increase the wrapping possibilities and improve the packing performances inside production and dispatch areas.
Orbital stretch wrapping machines are available in a wide range of automated and semi-automated models with different ring diameters to suit a wide diversity of goods. Some of the models are particularly designed with a sliding arm to accomodate and wrap rounded shape products. All lines of stretch wrappers are provided with automatic clamping and cutting system of the stretching film.
