When it comes to packaging heavy, unstable loads or loads that need protection from dust and the elements, stretch wrapping is often the best way to go, regardless of the load's shape. The newest model of Lantech's Lan-ringer system provides flexibility and protection for a variety of loads, including windows and doors, printed materials, and other items?such as ladders, beams, vinyl siding, PVC pipe, metal fabrications, and furniture? that will not fit on a turntable stretch wrapper.
Using stretch film for these types of bulky items reduces the need for expensive corrugated packaging, while providing easy product identification through the clear film.
For packaging printed materials, the Lanringer can be paired with a Lantech S-Series machine to provide a six-sided protective cocoon of stretch film, keeping out dust and moisture and virtually eliminating the load damage that can occur with metal banding or strapping.
The Lan-ringer packaging system is an overwrap machine designed to wrap product that is moved through the production process on a conveyor. The film delivery system is mounted on a 40-, 60-, 75-, or 90-inch ring, through which the product passes. Lantech's Power-Thru conveyor permits wrapping of the product and conveyor simultaneously. The conveyor supports the product through the wrap zone, allowing the stretch film to be applied with the proper containment force. Product stability is maintained by wrapping the product and conveyor together. Stabilizers support the top and sides of the product and guide it through the wrap zone during the wrapping process.
Loads of up to 4,000 pounds can be wrapped while the product is moving (spiral wrap mode) or stationary (banding mode) on the conveyor. After the product has been wrapped, a cut-and-clamp device cuts the end of the film, and the stretch film recovers against the product as it exits the machine. Wrapping parameters, including conveyor speed and number of wraps, are adjustable from a central programmable logic controller, allowing loads of random length, width, or height to be wrapped on one machine. The machine's Power Roller-Stretch film delivery system can utilize 20- or 30-inch film rolls.
There are four models of the Lan-ringer based on ring size: the LR-4000 (40-inch ring, 32-inch max load diagonal), the LR-6000 (60-inch ring, 52-inch max load diagonal), the LR- 7500 (75-inch ring, 67-inch max load diagonal), and the LR-9000 (90-inch ring, 82-inch max load diagonal).
