Automatic stretch wrappers on show

At interpack (4-10 May 2023 in Dusseldorf), Lantech will be showcasing automatic stretch wrappers and carton packaging systems. The machines are designed to make packaging processes more efficient and prevent transport damage.

The highlight at the company stand is the new RL automatic ring stretch wrapper. The machine is able to wrap up to 180 loads per hour with minimal operator intervention. The Metered Film Delivery feature also offers increased wrapping force with maximum stability, without squeezing and twisting the load or tearing the film.

The Load Seeking Clamp feature protects against film tears by welding the film end to the load. With Wrap Cycle Control, the film stretch can be adjusted during operation via the control panel. The optional extra Automatic Roll Change allows for the film rolls to be changed automatically.

Using the QL-400XT semi-automatic stretch wrapper saves two minutes of time on each wrapping cycle, according to the company, with the Cut and Clamp feature. Film is gripped and cut at the end of the wrapping cycle. The operation is completely mechanical and does not require a separate compressed air supply or power supply.

Users can process up to 35 loads per hour with the QL-400XT stretch wrapper, where the film can have a maximum pre-stretch of 300%.

Also on display at the show will be the company’s CL-100 automatic inline carton erector which processes up to 25 cases per minute, in a square shape, which have maximum stability. Dimensions of the cartons can range from 200mm x 150mm x 150mm to 500mm x 325mm x 520mm. Carton blanks are completely controlled from the moment they are inserted into the magazine until they are output as a finished, formed case with a sealed bottom.

Where smaller quantities are required, the C-300 case erectors can produce 10 square cases per minute with dimensions of up to 500mm x 350mm x 600mm per minute.

The company now offers the Lantech Intelligent Network Connection (LINC), a software solution that monitors the operation, productivity, quality and cost of L-Series automatic stretch wrappers. The new online tool analyses KPIs and draws the operator’s attention to inactive machines and incorrect winding profile settings.
