Muller LCS, a material load-containment solutions provider, today introduced what it called a reliable and economical solution for pallet wrapping with its new Octopus 1717C automatic rotary ring stretch wrapper.
The Octopus 1717C is competitively priced to automatic rotary-arm and turntable machines in the 30-50 LPH range, Muller said.
"We built the Octopus 1717C to give customers all the benefits they've come to expect from our Octopus rotary ring stretch wrap machines in a smaller footprint while providing optimal load containment and minimizing film usage" said Mark Lawler, distribution manager for Muller. "It's also a highly intuitive machine to operate and install, considering its capabilities."
Separately, Muller said it received a patent for technology used in a special condensation control film, called Xeros, which is designed to protect loads from outdoor elements while preventing condensation from forming inside the bag.
Aside from eliminating condensation and unwanted elements from entering the bag, the technology also maintains barcode readability and prevents tears and punctures as bags are stretched over the load.
