Wulftec WCA-SMART Automatic Stretch Wrapper

Extra Heavy Duty Ring Gear Driven Strech Wrapper

The WCA-SMART series is a competitively-priced extra heavy duty ring-gear driven conveyorized turntable stretch wrapping system.

Our Automatic stretch wrappers maximize throughput and efficiency. They take care of everything; you only change the roll of film. An automatic stretch wrapper will save significant time and money.

Turntable stretch wrappers are ideal for wrapping stable loads of under 8,000 lbs. They are typically less expensive than rotary arm models and have a smaller footprint – a definite asset when space is at a premium.

Features of the WCA-SMART

AC variable frequency drives as standard equipment on all machines
Lower maintenance and better reliability - Wulftec stretch wrappers will save time and money
NEMA 4/12 control panel dust tight and waterproof
The control panel is neatly organized eliminating time otherwise lost searching for wires
The control panel is UL508A approved
Superior electrical/electronic design including Allen Bradley MicroLogix PLC and AC drives
All motors, proximity sensors, photoeyes and other sensors have quick disconnect cables that simplify installation and maintenance
Photoeyes are maintenance free and protected
All Wulftec structures are made of heavy-duty steel for rugged performance in the harshest work environments
These stretch wrappers are built to last forever
Dual chain driven for balanced movement & no vibration
Quick and easy adjustment of upper and lower carriage travel
The Maintenance-Free spring-loaded carriage gate equipped with spring loaded rollers ensures optimal contact with the stretch film, year after year, without involving maintenance
Wulftec is the only manufacturer to offer a LIFETIME warranty on its pre-stretch roller blue compound
Preset pre-stretch ratios are available from 50-300%
Since all of our semi-automatic SMART Series stretch wrappers wrap 2 inches from the turntable, you are guaranteeing the product is properly secured to the pallet, resulting in a pallet that is more stable for transport, and therefore less damage
No film threading is required and a Lexan cover eliminates operator's ability to reach rollers when gate is closed
Non-Proprietary parts accessible on a local base

Cut and Wipe System

Pneumatically operated cut and wipe-on system automatically cuts and wipes the film onto the load upon cycle end
First a vertical roller positions the film over the clamp which grabs the film, ensuring longer heat wire life expectancy
Then the heat wire swings in and cuts the film
A timed impulse heat control allows quick cool down so the heat wire becomes cold to the touch within 5 seconds

Best Warranties in the Industry

3-year unlimited cycle warranty
10-year warranty on steel structure
10-year warranty on 25" ring gear bearings
Lifetime warranty on pre-stretch roller blue compound
