Orion Advantages

Here are some features and advantages to Orion Packaging equipment as compared to the competition:

Orion Advantages The Competition
Widely used Allen Bradley or Telemecanique PLC controllers are reliable, easy to trouble shoot, repair or replace Many competitors use proprietary PLC microcontrollers which may not be as reliable or as easy to repair or replace than A/B
Many nonproprietary, locally available parts Many proprietary, available only from manufacturer, assuming they are still in business one or two years from now
Separate UP and DOWN carriage speed on many models gives user more control of how much film is applied to load Only one carriage speed adjustment for up and down limits the users ability to tailor film usage to load
INSTA-Thread film carriage on most models means NO hands in prestretch, open the door, pull film across, close the door Competitive machines often require operator to place hands near powered rollers, a dangerous situation
Powered prestretch force-to-load control uses non-contact, non-wearing film speed control, very accurate and precise Often is a microswitch, either on or off. This is a wear part which is not nearly as precise and uses more film per load. Some use complex stain gauge which is hard to calibrate
NEMA 12 dust & dirt sealed control box standard on most models Some competitors offer NEMA 12 as expensive option
High & Low profile models available to match application (High profile easier to load with fork lift) Some competitors only offer low profile model
Forklift portable from FRONT or REAR on turntable semi automatic models Most competitors forklift portable from rear only
Sturdy, durable steel construction, either structural steel or heavy gauge sheet steel. Sheet metal and molded plastic can be damaged, bent
REVO-LOGIC on most models applies accurate top & bottom wraps which saves customer stretch film and money Some use contact switch and set parameters to TWO to assure at least one full wrap, wastes film
14 RPM rotation speed for higher throughput Some competitors only offer 12 RPM maximum
More casters used to support turntable on turntable high profile models. Competitors use fewer support casters or casters of inferior material
Better warranty, Orion stands behind what we build Orion Flex turntable models come with a full 5 year warranty
Highly responsive parts & service department, based in FEDEX headquarters (Alexandria, MN) for urgent parts shipment Smaller infrastructure, expensive parts, not nearly as responsive as Orion
260% Standard prestretch level on most models can over time save hundreds, even thousands of dollars Often 185% 200% maximum stretch levels are standard due to inferior carriage design which may cause film breaks at higher levels
Compact space-saving design Some competitive machines have large, air filled sheet metal masts for "big" appearance
