Retrofitting the conveyor allowed the wrapping of the entire skid regardless
of the inboard positioning of the product
Customer: Progistix Solutions
Machine: Wulftec Futura 2000 Automatic Rotary Arm Stretch Wrapper
Scenario: A major new customer requested that all pallets meet special stretch
wrapping specifications which required that the entire pallet
be wrapped with the product. The existing stretch wrapper did
not allow this spec to be met which would jeopardize the new business.
Retro-fit: Wrap zone conveyor with integrated pop-up pallet lift system.
This pallet lifting system added to the wrap zone conveyor allows
the pallet load to be lifted off of the roller conveyor while
the stretch wrapper wraps the load and pallet, continuing even
under the pallet. Stretch wrapper is reprogrammed to detect the
loads to be
Results: By replacing the original wrap zone conveyor with one that had
an integrated pop-up device, we were able to raise the pallet
up and off the rollers by 4. This allowed us to wrap the
entire skid regardless of the inboard positioning of the product.
