Glenview, IL, (April 9, 2018)— Signode Industrial Group, a leading manufacturer of a broad spectrum of packaging consumables, tools, software and equipment to optimize load containment, will display a wide variety of its customer-focused innovations at Modex in Atlanta, Georgia at booth #B3275. With 88 manufacturing facilities across six continents, the company does business under more than two dozen highly respected brands throughout the world. At the booth, attendees can meet representatives from Signode Packaging Systems, Muller Load Containment Solutions (LCS) and Loveshaw.
Signode Packaging Systems, a global leader in the manufacturing of steel and plastic strapping materials and equipment, will introduce the BXT3 Plastic Strapping Tool for the first time to the US Market at Modex. Boasting a lightweight and balanced design, the drop, dust and moisture-proof tool is easy to assemble and disassemble and features a full touch, 3 color display. The BXT3 is perfect for all types of applications, including heavy-duty applications requiring high tension force and extremely rough and tough environmental conditions as well as sensitive, light-duty applications requiring soft tensioning and small and thin straps.
The BXT3 is the world's first strapping tool with a number of important features including; real-time indication of tension force, variable tension speed, strap alignment indication, three color information display and acoustic signal. A quicker and simpler operation than comparable tools, the BXT3 is perfect for various recurring packaged goods with different setting requirements. The tool is also equipped with the ability to switch between standard and favorite settings, including tension force, welding time and operating mode.
"We are thrilled to introduce the Signode BXT3 at Modex 2018," says JR Stanley, Market Segment Manager, Signode Packaging Systems. "We listened closely to what customers wanted from a strapping tool and developed this product to meet the various requirements in a wide range of industries. The tool has a lot of unique and powerful features that are perfect for nearly every application.
Among the innovations on display will be Muller's Octopus™ "1717 C" automatic rotary ring stretch wrapper. The Octopus 1717C is competitively priced to automatic rotary arm and turntable machines in the 30-50 LPH range. With its compact size the new wrapper is versatile for a variety of applications and environments.
"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" says Joe Albert, Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, Global Wrapping Technologies, Signode Industrial Group. "It's also a highly intuitive machine to operate and install considering its capabilities."
Muller will also be showcasing its popular Yellow Jacket Orbital Stretch Wrapper. Originally built by fabricators to solve the unique challenges of securing oddly shaped, heavy loads directly to the pallet, Muller's Yellow Jacket orbital stretch wrapper is the preferred load containment solution for fabricating industry veterans. The Yellow Jacket effectively secures complex fabrications, metal parts and loose assemblies on a pallet while simultaneously minimizing the time and labor traditionally required to secure the load to a pallet. Yellow Jacket's Orbital Stretch Wrapper is available in manual or semi-automatic. The 87M requires a footprint of only about 8'x9' and runs on 110VAC- making it easy to install in any environment. It also wraps a standard pallet size up to 68" diagonal.
"Muller is backed by some truly amazing solutions that continually set us apart from the competition," says Joe Albert, Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, Global Wrapping Technologies, Signode Industrial Group. "The Yellow Jacket is proof that our products provide industry specific solutions and we work tirelessly to help our customers solve all their load containment needs."
Attendees will also see Loveshaw's LDX RTB on display, an innovative random automatic case sealer developed specifically for customers seeking a case sealer that processes random size cases without an operator. This durable machine can process weak, void and overstuffed cases at high speeds and is ideal for high volume environments. With an expansive case range, easy access to motors, electrical and belts, and operation from all sides with moveable controls, it is one of the most versatile case sealers on the market. As safety continues to be a major concern for manufactures today, the LDX RTB is equipped with unique safety features like interlocking safety gates and automatic locking of the top drive assembly when there is loss of air or electric.
"The LDX RTB is an incredibly versatile, high performance machine," says Elaine Errico, Marketing Manager, Loveshaw. "Manufacturers today are looking for solutions to many unique challenges. This machine provides versatility, durability, increased safety, speed and performance—all attributes at the top of our customer's list of requirements."
