Use One Film Size To Wrap All Products Packaged With The Compression Folding System
The traversing stretch cart is an easy add-on to a compression folding system that allows facilities to use only one size of stretch film. The machine's standard has the stretch film grip as a static component. The traversing stretch cart feature replaces this component with one that moves from side to side, allowing operations to use one 50-inch film roll to package any variety of product dimensions.
How The Traversing Stretch Cart Works
Products enter the roll cage the same as with a traditional static stretch wrap grip.
The cart moves from side to side to cover the entirety of the package in stretch wrap and lock in compression.
Changeovers are a pain. Every time you need to stop the machine to change film rolls equates to unproductive hours on the machine. By using one type of stretch film, your changeovers will be limited to when the roll runs out of film. This means more run-time!
Manufacturers that sometimes package products without folding, such as pocket coil mattresses, and sometimes with folding, will benefit from a traversing stretch cart.
