The Cube is a very fast rotating ring stretch wrapping machine to wrap and stabilise loads on pallets with stretch film suitable for all industry sectors. At 80 revolutions per minute possibly the fastest wrapper in the world.
The Genesis Cube series of pallet stretch wrapping machines operate without sliding electrical contacts, is unique in that the drive for the pre stretch rollers is via stationary servo motors which can modulate both the pre stretch ratio and the lay on force (wrapping pressure) on a continuous basis. This technical and highly innovative solution, in addition to eliminating all the typical problems of sliding contacts, also means that loads especially prone to crushing such as tissues, PET bottles etc can be wrapped perfectly with the minimum amount of film. This system is very flexible and can adjust to the particular wrapping requirements for mixed loads quickly and easily.
This results in reduced maintenance, high reliability, high flexibility and long working life. Furthermore, construction solutions have been adopted to minimise transport costs and installation time giving economic advantages for the end user.
Maximum output capacity 135 Pallet/h depending on line speed and the total number of revolutions of film required.
Following are some advantages that the new model in comparison with :
- a more accurate control of the stretch resulting in increased warranty given film consumption
- increased reliability
- an easier maintainability
The Rotating ring is a precision engineered component guaranteed to work at maximum speed. The smooth running of the ring assembly extends the working life of the parts in motion. Drive to the ring is created by a high resistance flat belt which is both very durable and extremely quiet in operation.
Rotation speed, acceleration and deceleration is controlled by a frequency inverter futher extending the working life of the equipment.
Interconnected double chain arrangement mounted on a robust 4 column steel frame guarantees synchronous vertical movement of the ring assembly – Anti drop mechanisms are fitted as standard in the unlikely event of chain failure.
Ring lift/lowering speed is controlled by frequency inverter.
CLAMP AND CUT
Pneumatically driven clamp unit with hot wire film cut that also includes a film tail welding device as standard.
TOP SHEET COVER
TOP INSIDE device to cover the pallet with polyethylene film.
Film is dispensed using a patented system that unwinds the correct amount of film, optimising consumption and perfectly centring the top sheet over the pallet.
Film dispense and deposit occur without reducing machine production capacity.
“ROPING” DEVICE (OPTION)
Device that reduces the film strip into a “rope” to ensure more efficient load stabilisation by making the load and pallet a single homogenous unit.
Film is gathered from above or below in the single movement version while it is grouped at the centre in the dual cylinder version.
AUTOMATIC FILM REEL
The new automatic film reel change (ARC 2) uses two carriages located locally to the rotating ring and within the machine’s safety guards, once the reel is finished on the pre-stretch carriage, it automatically expels the core and fits a new reel. The reel change unit is then reloaded by an operator without stopping the machine.
This new device extends the duty cycle of the machine and results in higher production capacity.
The automatic reel change assembly can be provided as a single or double unit as required.
