Orbital Wrapping Solution for an Australian cabinet manufacturer
Industry: Cabinet Maker
Packaging solutions provided: FV350 - 125 Automatic Orbital Wrapping Machine
Date of installation: March 2020
FROMM recently partnered with Australian cabinet manufacturer located in Melbourne to design and install a new Automatic Orbital Wrapping Machine.
Our customer was looking for an environmentally friendly machine that would use less stretch film, increase output and protect their cabinet panels during transit.
Our customer manufactured flat packed kitchen and bathroom cabinet packs ranging from 900mm in width and 200mm in height down to single 100mm x 16mm single pieces. Our solution was the FV350-125 Orbital Wrapping Machine. It featured a 1250mm diameter ring, automatic top pressers on the in and outfeeds to stabilize the product during the wrap cycle.
With the wide array of wrapping program options available on the FV350/125 the customer was able to wrap an entire board with full coverage to provide maximum protection or simply band the ends of each piece.
With the idea that the film provides friction between individual pieces when packed onto pallets, the customer was able to use a narrower width film roll with the combination of the banding program to achieve their goal of using less plastic film while maintaining secure pack integrity as well as protection of their product from marking and scuffing.
