Machine: Polybro Rotary Arm Automatic
Scenario: High maintenance costs and unreliable automatic operation associated
with the clamp & cut assembly of this particular wrapper forced
the customer to seek a solution. The film had to be roped at the
end of every cycle in order to clamp & cut. This lengthened
the cycle time, increased film costs, with inconsistent results.
The Competitive solution was to replace the unit with a new stretch
wrapper, as they do not have the engineering capability to do otherwise.
This was not an option the customer could consider at the time.
Retrofit: Retrofit film clamp assembly c/w a cut & wipe film tail treatment
Results: With the new film clamp and cut & wipe assemblies installed
and the program changed to reflect the upgrade, the machine became
a consistent automatic wrapping system. The cycle time was decreased
with the elimination of the extra roped revolutions (also resulting
in substantial film savings). Operator intervention required with
the old clamp and cut system was virtually eliminated.
