Orion Packaging Enhances Its Top Selling Flex CTS Stretch Wrapper for Additional Labor Savings and Higher Throughput
The innovative twin-station stretch wrapper – one pallet being wrapped while a second pallet is already wrapped and ready for pickup – now offers the added benefits of more advanced control technology and upgraded stretch wrapping.
ALEXANDRIA, Minn., — Orion Packaging introduces its next generation Flex CTS automatic stretch wrapping system, which now features the company’s latest control technology and stretch wrapping functionally. The Flex CTS with its twin side-by-side platforms – one for wrapping and one for pick up – and its automatic stretch wrapping mechanics maximizes pallet handling efficiency for small- to mid-sized shipping operations.
The rugged steel-framed Flex CTS stretch wrapping machine shares many of the same features as Orion Packaging’s models found in the most demanding high throughput distribution centers. These features include automatic load height sensing for seamless wrapping of different pack patterns, 260 percent powered pre-stretch for maximum material savings, AC motors and variable frequency drives for reduced maintenance, and gradual start up and ramp down. This last feature provides for greater load stability during the stretch wrapping process.
The advancements to the Flex CTS include the addition of the latest IntelleVue control package with 7-inch high-definition color-touch-screen HMI. This bilingual interface simplifies recipe-based operations: Operators gain access to all machine functions in only two clicks and the HMI stores up to 10 wrap recipes for fast, trouble-free changeover. Secure Internet access for remote technical support is accomplished through an Ethernet port – just plug in an Ethernet cable when remote troubleshooting is needed. The USB port provides for fast, secure loading of software updates. The Flex CTS has a 5,000-pound load capacity and, at 15 rotations-per-minute, quick wrapping for optimum throughout.
The Flex CTS now offers a film-tail cut-and-wipe-down feature that automatically attaches the tail end of the stretch wrap to the load for a professional hands free finish to the automated wrapping process. The Flex CTS is engineered so that the forklift driver does not have to dismount during loading, start of wrapping, or unloading. And while one pallet is being wrapped, another is ready for forklift pickup for efficient forklift utilization.
