Texwrap’s OVS Series Side Seal Wrappers can be configured with an infeed from Texwrap to take the product from the upstream equipment and handle it to prepare the product to be wrapped and then passed through the shrink tunnel to fully automate the wrapping process. Texwrap has developed a variety of standard infeed designs or we can create a unique design depending on the application requirement. Our OVS Series Side Seal Wrapping Turnkey Solutions provide the customer with a complete solution to reduce or dramatically reduce manual labor required for the line’s shrink wrapping operations.
Features and Benefits
Many options are available to help insure that aerosol cans are safely shrink wrapped. These include tunnel guiding, lasers to detect fallen product, first-in-first-out tracking, air motors in case of power failures, and air accelerators to quickly remove hot air from the tunnel in case of a problem.
Texwrap’s Automatic Label Positioning System combines with a OVS or BVS Series wrapper. A multipack of products can be automatically formed directly off a filler, arranged with all the labels facing precisely the same direction, and shrink wrapped all while standing upright. The types of products that would typically be packaged this way are bottles, cans, canisters and jars.
The demand for vertical wrapping systems has increased with the growth in popularity of the retail multipack. This has been a boon as a marketing tool and also as a way to reduce the amount of packaging material. Texwrap vertical wrapping systems can eliminate the use of the carrier or "boot" commonly used to hold products together while being wrapped.
While most often used to orient product labels for increased shelf appeal, this unit can also be used to hide individual unit bar codes within a multipack. The package can then be labeled or wrapped with printed film for identification in the store as a multipack. As products are fed into the system in groups, the orientor automatically identifies the position of each individual unit. It then clamps each with a set with servo-driven wheels, spinning each one into the perfect position for wrapping.
The system is even flexible enough to combine multiple UPC codes of the same item into a variety pack and is capable of handling up to 75-80 3-packs a minute.
Whether your need is for products to be divided into multiple lanes or combined from multiple lanes into one for wrapping, Texwrap can design and build an infeed system to suit the application. Unlike many other manufacturers in our business who only want to make wrappers and who like to decline to make or contract out the conveying systems, Texwrap will design complete infeeds and take responsibility for the entire system. Our customers are assured that all of the pieces work together and startups go very smoothly.
Screw infeed systems take streams of back-to-back products and divide them into groups for high speed wrapping as multipacks. Much faster than gated or belt-release systems, screws are the fastest way to create packs in whichever count or configuration the application demands.
The market is demanding more and more packaging of products in multipacks. Many types of like Items can be automatically grouped and wrapped for shelf display. Using printed film can produce a very attractive package while hiding individual bar codes and present a new multipack code. Texwrap even has a label-orienting system that automatically aligns the labels of individual items in a pack to face the same way.
Producing promotional packages can give marketers a whole range of new opportunities to increase market share. Examples include shrink wrapping in multipacks to include samples of new products along with current brands, BOGOs, or seasonal specials.
Through our history in the shrink wrapping industry, Texwrap has developed several standard infeed designs that can be configured to introduce product to the wrapping reducing the overall manual labor required for the operation. Whether the application requires stacking, sorting, dividing, combining, controlling, orienting, or a combination of these, we have a solution.
