Fully automatic machine for horizontally banding palletized loads with a narrow band of stretch film.
This type of machine is particularly suited to applications where there is a need to secure a stack of products that do not require the overall containment of stretch film.
Several bands can be applied either at the same time or, by reversing the pallet, a second band can be applied by the same head. The band strip is driven upwards, out of the way, during the reversing cycle.
Another popular application for the Roboband is when a label needs to be attached to the pallet but the label must not or cannot be placed directly onto the load – such as crates/kegs etc. The label is applied to the band itself during the banding process.
Roboband can be used for an output capacity up to 150 loads/h.
