Strapping and Stretch Wrapping for Secure Loads
Upon exit of the Palletizing System, the finished load needs securement prior to pick-up by warehouse operators. An automatic strapper or also referred to as an automatic bander, applies a 2 x 2, 4 x 4 or other selected band pattern based on customer needs. KES commonly integrates strapping units along with local controls for strap pattern selection, stop, start, manual, auto and diagnostics. In addition, KES manufactures a lift and turn or a strapper shuttle and sequences the load through the strapper.
Upon completion of strapping the palletized load, the finished load is conveyed to an automatic stretch wrapper. Here stretch wrap is applied to the unit to act as a dust cover and final containment to keep containers in place. KES manufactures a variety of stretch wrapper models to accommodate the loads per hour and film size requirements. Two standard models KES installs commonly is The Sxpa-20-100” automatic rotary arm stretch wrapper and The Expa-15-100” automatic rotary table stretch wrapper. The SXPA rotary arm model applies film to the stationary load while the film head is rotated around the unit. This is beneficial and suggested for more unstable palletized loads. The EXPA rotary table stretch wrapper applies wrap while the turntable is rotating the load and the stretch head is located on a fixed tower. The benefits of a rotary table stretch wrapper are reduced footprint for when space is important. Both solutions offer 20” or 30” film size options, selectable wraps patterns, automatic load height detection, and system diagnostics.
After final packaging through the stretchwrapper, Kaufman Engineered Systems will manufacture and supply finished load accumulation based on customer requirements. KES will work with the customer to design, manufacture, program, install and startup the finished end of line discharge conveyor system to provide loads to the warehouse operators.
