Many shrink wrap applications demand unique material handling solutions to introduce products to the wrapper in a certain configuration or to handle them after shrinking. Whether your application requires stacking, sorting, dividing, combining, controlling, orienting, or a combination of these, Texwrap has a solution. From the fastest horizontal orbital servo wrappers to an incredible variety of infeeds and highly custom product handling systems, you can count on Texwrap to deliver a complete system that will provide years of reliable, low-cost service.
The cost of labor to assemble packages for wrapping and the ever higher speeds required of packaging lines are making devices such as multi-axis robots, pick and place units, and friction feeders a cost-effective option for automating the loading of a shrink wrap system. Mechanical feeders can significantly reduce or eliminate hand feeding and can manipulate items in precise ways and at speeds that are beyond human ability. If your application requires simply adding a top sheet to a stack of product prior to wrapping or creating multipacks of product at high speeds, Texwrap has the experience to design, program, and integrate a solution.
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.
Packages made up of multiple items can be assembled automatically in-line prior to being wrapped. Flighted infeed systems can be paired with multiple friction feeders where each station feeds a different item into a lug pocket which then carries the assembled package into the wrapper. Some examples of this might be rainbow packs of construction paper for scrapbooking, sets of various printed forms which are used together, or packets of sales brochures for delivery to dealers for display. These systems not only eliminate the hand labor of assembling the packets but also dramatically speed up the process.
The BVS Vertical Sealers are ideally suited to multipacks or variety packs that exit upstream equipment in a vertical position. A vertical multipacker provides packagers with a way to shrink wrap these packs without the labor and expense of laying them down prior to wrapping on side sealing systems.
The OVS Series machines are similar to the BVS series in that they are able to accept products in a vertical or upright position eliminating the need to lay them down. It uses a full top trim seal instead of a lap seal to securely enclose the product. Often used as a multipacker for retail sale, the precise product and film control of the OVS series provides our highest rate of operation with precise print registration.
Texwrap’s LSS Series Horizontal Lap Sealers are continuous motion wrappers for product that is typically wider than it is tall. For applications requiring the high speed wrapping of packages where a bottom lap seal is desired, the LSS Series are the fastest and most flexible wrapper of their kind.
The EPS Series is the optimal solution for high-volume e-commerce businesses. The EPS speeds throughput, reduces material usage, and helps prevent order fulfillment errors.
Whether you wrap-to-stock or wrap-to-ship automating your process with one of Texwrap's EPS Series wrappers can increase speed, reduce material and DIM weight freight costs, and improve order accuracy.
The 5200 Series features a servo-driven seal assembly and carriage ideal for high speed packaging lines.
Intermittent motion shrink bundler designed to shrink wrap products that, by themselves, are stable enough to transport on a conveyor.
The Tekkra 1000 Series are continuous motion tray wrappers that are ideal for products placed in a tray or on a pad or others that do not require assistance to remain upright. A terrific solution for mid-range production speeds.
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.
