A significant number of stretch wrap customers don’t have compressed air available in non-production areas. As the industry leader in integrated packaging solutions, Arpac has introduced a line of totally electric semi-automatic and automatic stretch wrappers to address this need. These robust, all electric systems can clamp and cut films between cycles, allowing customers to place the machines virtually anywhere in their facility, including: warehouses, distribution centers, commercial freezers and loading docks.
Arpac’s ELECTRO-WRAP SERIES® automatic rotary tower stretch wrapper requires no pneumatic hookup, plumbing or compressed air, reducing installation and energy costs. The combination of automation and floor space optimization make it ideal for when you need to stretch wrap unstable pallet loads that are either too light or too heavy to rotate on a turntable wrapper. The ELECTRO-WRAP SERIES® automatic rotary tower wraps faster than a conventional turnable system, offering you the flexibility to load the wrap zone with either a fork truck or pallet jack.
The material handler sets the pallet on the floor in front of the wrapper and activates the wrapping cycles using a remote lanyard. The ELECTO-WRAP SERIES® completes the job with the film carriage revolving around the stationary pallet load. Upon completion of the cycle, the system automatically clamps, cuts and wipes the film to the pallet. A safety sensor, which is included, instantly stops the rotating film carriage arm. A robust swing arm drive system features a slewing bearing design that ensures long life with minimal maintenance.
The ELECTO-WRAP SERIES® is manufactured in the USA in accordance with Arpac’s Lean Manufacturing Process (AM2) to ensure quality, performance and value. The wrapper is sold and serviced through our nationwide distributor network.
