Wrap star. Robust, automatic wrapping machine

THE OMC-V2000 vertical ring wrapping machine offers the South African manufacturing industry the most robust, automatic vertical spiral or band wrapping solution on the market, for application with or without pallets.
That’s according to local packaging supplier, FROMM Packaging Systems, which said the modular machine automatically secures loads with 25cm wide power pre-stretch film. In addition, the film carriage provides the ability to rope the film to a film band of about 1cm wide, thereby creating a strong, elastic, low-density polyethylene film band.
The machine allows for bands to be placed independently or to create cross connections between several bands to secure load stabilization during transport and storage.
Denny Reddy, Managing Director, FROMM Packaging Systems SA, said the well-balanced holding force with no to low corner pressure means that the risk of damage to the product is considerably reduced.
The pressure on the corners is distributed over a width of approximately 10cm and corner protectors are therefore, in principle, unnecessary. To realise the highest possible capacity, bands are wrapped without sealing/ cutting in between.
The optional Automatic Film Roll Changer provides for one to three rolls, which allows for longer production hours without operator intervention, reducing machine downtime and increasing line speed.
Suitable for a wide variety of products, the machine can handle pack sizes of between 40cm and 120cm wide and high, and unlimited multiple pack lengths.
“The OMC-V2000 machine is indicative of FROMM’s innovative approach to ensuring the highest possible level of product protection and load securing, combined with a user and ergonomically friendly operation,” said Reddy.
The company provides a full range of strapping systems from hand systems (strapping tools) to fully automatic strapping machines, with full service support on all of its equipment over the complete product lifecycle.
