Enterprise Tondelli and its primary partner in this field, Baumer Spa of Bologna are at the forefront in this field. Baumer specialise in only wraparound cartonners, tray shrinkwrapper or combined machines to handle both carton, trays and shrink film.
Baumer tray shrinkwrapper machines are manufactured for:-
- 20 cycles per minute to 200 cycles per minute.
- Tray erection/loading at 120 trays per minute single lane
The machines can operate as follows:-
- Film only Shrinkwrapper
- Flat board and shrink film wrapper
- Tray and shrink film wrapper
- Tray only
- The latest “super” combined machine from Baumer can handle wraparound cartons, shrinkwrapped trays and also film only packs with automatic change over and no requirement to move heavy conveyors.
The Universale range of shrink wrap machines designed for 200 cycles per minute are for 2.000 cans per minute filling lines where there is a requirement to produce film only shrink-wrapped multipacks in 4’s or 6’s. This shrink wrap machine on 4 packs will produce 600 packs per minute operating with triple lanes. Seven new patents were issued by the European patent office for this machine alone due to the unique solutions required.
Particular features of the shrink wrap machine include :-
- short film feed path with no tensioning rollers thus avoiding the lost end of reel problem and also reducing maintenance.
- include servomotor machine control with a Siemens or Allan Bradley Plc and an open program architecture so no “black box technology.
- Facility for the end user to add new programmes
The shrink wrapper has been used for a wide variety of products and package including: soft drinks, bottled wine, water, baby food cartons, beer, wine in bricks, rice in pouches, yoghurt in pots, edible oils, mineral oils, pharmaceuticals etc.
- a recent innovation is for tapered yoghurt pots shrinkwrapped in flat boards dramatically saving packaging and with a 6 month payback on the machine. The machine includes a special conveyor feeding and packing system for these odd shaped containers.
