A new packaging machine, XL Power, that enables sealed packaging of up to 19-m-long nonwovens rolls has been introduced by Tentoma. For the packaging of shorter rolls, XL Power can stretch film for even more products per packaging cycle, which increases the packaging speed.
The first XL Power is built and sold to replace an orbital wrapper. It will be part of a packaging line where it will pack products in varied sizes up to 13.5 m in length.
The XL Power packaging machine from Tentoma A/S, Broager/Denmark, has more forces for stretching film. This means that the machine can load and stretch even more film on the gripper arms during the packaging process. It opens opportunities for more packaging improvements.
Most obvious is the increased maximum length of the products, which now can be packed and protected by a 100% waterproof packaging. Depending on product shape and film thickness, it is now possible to pack and seal products up to a length of 19 m. “Semiflow packaging” enables the packaging of multiple products in a row before the machine needs to load more film on the gripper arms. XL Power can load and stretch even more film on the gripper arms, so it is possible to pack even more products in a row.
The new machine packs 260 products/hour, meaning an increase in the packaging speed of approx. 25% compared to its predecessor. It is equipped with stronger and longer gripper arms to load more film, the motors have become more powerful to stretch even more film and the steel construction has become stronger to withstand the increased tensile forces. The XL Power can be adapted to the production line and the specific packaging requirement.
