Stretch Wrapping Solutions for Food Packaging
Laser distance sensors also work well in this area to determine the position of the top of the pallet since it can change with different case sizes. Monitoring roll diameter is also important at this stage to ensure that wrap material does not run out and slow down packaging. Sensors can be used to determine when rolls are almost empty, and indicator lights alert operators of the issue.
Due to the dangers associated with a full pallet transfer, horizontal area guarding is needed in order to maximize productivity of packaging while protecting operators from the hazardous motion of a machine.
