Standard-Knapp has introduced its continuous motion Tritium Multipacker, which features RoboWrap, a new multi-axis wrapping technology. RoboWrap includes the Robo-Wand wrapping wand, which can be positioned above the conveyor and moved to exactly the right place to create a particular desired pack pattern. The new wrapping wand can be programmed to deal with packages of any size. As a result, no changeover of parts is required.
The Tritium Multipacker works at varying speeds and provides wrapping that is tighter and more exact than earlier models. It cuts packaging material consumption by eliminating the need for trays and pads.
The Tritium Multipacker also has a lower carbon footprint than earlier models thanks to its energy-efficient heat tunnel. After products are wrapped, they are sent through the tunnel, which shrinks the film around each multi-pack-ensuring a consistent, wrinkle-free bull's eye and bottom seal. The machine can run fully registered advertising onto the outside printed plastic label.
The system is easy to align and initial setup is relatively simple, says Standard-Knapp. After setup, no mechanical adjustment is necessary. If new products are added, a simple programming adjustment can be made.
