Stand-Alone Automatic Conveyorized Twin Station Stretch Wrapper Machine
The newly redesigned Orion CTS is a Conveyorized Twin Station stretch wrapping machine designed to increase fork lift efficiency and reduce load handling times by providing a powered conveyor turntable and a gravity conveyor section used as a staging platform for wrapped loads waiting to be picked up.
The CTS stretch wrapping machine was designed to fill the gap between our Flex HPA and the FA fully automatic stretch wrapper. By providing a powered conveyorized turntable and gravity discharge conveyor section, the CTS can dramatically reduce the amount of time spent handling loads.
The CTS stretch wrapping machine is built with many of the same components of our larger and more sophisticated automatic system, and offers throughput speeds approaching fully automatic systems at a fraction of the cost.
Film Tail Cut & Wipe Down System
This is the same pneumatically activated film clamp, cut and press system as used on some of Orion's fully automatic stretch wrapping systems. It's fully adjustable, extremely rugged and designed to give years of reliable service. The standard film cutter is an impulse hot wire.
The components used on the conveyors are the same quality as used on other Orion fully automatic machinery. Just because the CTS has a low price doesn't mean we scrimp on the quality of the components.
Operation of the CTS
1: The load is brought to CTS stretch wrapper and placed on either the conveyorized turntable or the empty conveyor section. To start the wrapping cycle the operator pulls a lanyard or uses the optional Orion remote controller.
2: The operator is free to attend to other tasks such as getting the next pallet load to be wrapped.
3: When he returns, the wrapped load has been automatically moved to the gravity conveyor section, or remains on the turntable conveyor section. He is then free to place the unwrapped load on the CTS and signal the machine to start wrapping.
4: Next he picks up the wrapped load from the gravity conveyor and takes it away.
IntelleVue is a new display panel and controls package on the CTS. IntelleVue was designed to make Orion wrappers the smartest, easiest to use and intuitive pallet wrappers on the market today. The redesigned operating system was written from the ground up so that Orion wrappers are as easy to use as a smart phone.

Insta-threadFilm Delivery System
The Orion Insta-Thread film delivery system faces the side for easier film roll loading and threading. The system uses specially designed rollers to accurately elongate film at a standard rate of 260%.
This highly reliable prestretch systems features the fastest, easiest and safest film loading on the market, and an advanced "non-contact" film tension sensor for years of trouble-free wrapping.
A sophisticated photo eye senses even difficult colored and reflective loads, and Orion's unique Insta-Sense system pauses the wrap cycle if the stretch film breaks or runs out.Request more info about this product
KEY BENEFITS OF THE CTS
The CTS eliminates the need for an operator to attach and cut the stretch film and eliminates time-loss from forklift drivers watching loads being wrapped. Simply place the pallet-load on either the gravity turntable or the conveyor turntable via forklift, and pull a lanyard switch or activate the machine with a remote controller while backing away. The machine will wrap the load as you have pre-determined it to do, automatically adapting to the load size and shape (within machine specifications). At end of the wrap cycle the load will be conveyed onto the exit pick-up conveyor section, freeing the turntable to receive another load.
The film is pre-stretched (elongated) at 260% which "processes" the stretch film for maximum linear strength and load retention, while reducing material cost. Film Force-to-Load control is automatic, performing like cruise-control so the film constantly adapts to the load shape, size and machine operating speed, resulting in minimal film breaks at maximum stretch. Bottom line...Properly wrapped loads for reduced shipping damage and reduced material cost.
Functionality, uptime and safe interaction are all critical to your operation! The Orion Flex series designs include many standard features to enhance the machine's performance, uptime and safe operator interaction (often options with competitive models).

SAFE interaction features on the CTS
1. Pallet load is set onto the loading zone (turntable conveyor) via forklift
2. Driver backs away from wrapper and pulls lanyard switch to start the wrap cycle
3. Once the wrap cycle is complete, the load is transferred onto the exit pick-up station
4. Driver sets another load onto the turntable, then picks up the wrapped load
