During the strapping cycle, the strapping head indexes towards the load before tensioning sequence, so tensioning and sealing are done against the side of the load.
The strapping head is mounted on a movable assembly guided through linear bearings, and activated by an electric motor with a timing belt. The head has a load sensing device that detects the side of the load and tells the head movement to stop so tensioning and welding are done as close as possible to the product for maximum strap containment efficiency.
The bottom section of the strapping arch can be a standard undertrack style or an electric motor driven pallet bayonet for "through-pallet" strapping or a combination of both.
Up to 8 straps per minute may be applied, depending on strapping arch and package dimensions, strap quality and strap tension required
PET or polypropylene strap may be used with minor adjustments to the strapping head
Electronic tension control through a variable frequency drive. Assures consistent tension control regardless of the number of cycles and environmental conditions.
Strap tension is adjustable from the touch screen.
The VarioMaster 9471 offer turntables, rotating cross and centering devices as an option for all handling needs, accommodating pallet and palletless loads.
Wulftec heavy-duty conveyors are second-to-none in the industry
