AL80 is an automatic machine able to handle rolls in single, double, or triple collations; the output rate is up to 210 rolls per minute for the collation 1x3.
Rolls are picked up from a conveyor belt, put "in phase" and then the wrapping cycle begins. If needed, a divider can be supplied to arrange rolls in parallel lines (double or triple collations).
The pack is closed on its upper part by film edge superposition, followed by ionisation and longitudinal seal operation (without contact). Then, it is transferred to the transversal seal station where packs are parted. The completely wrapped roll is made to pass through the shrinking tunnel.
Roll packs can be customised with (glueless) label insertion or printed film.
With this packaging process, film consumption is approximately 20-25% lower compared with other bundlers available on the market. The wrapping process does not generate any scraps or rejects of wrapping material, which cuts disposal costs and reduces shrinking temperatures. Given these multiple advantages, the cost of the entire process is 30-35% lower.
The bundler can be customised with the addition of modules, including:
Microline automatic flow wrappers epitomise the quality and attention to detail that have always been a distinguishing feature of products manufactured by the company from Bologna. Over the years, Microline has developed various horizontal packaging solutions in response to customer requirements, the standout example being the FLOW WRAP 1000: a multi-pack bundler for AFH rolls.
In these difficult times, versatility plays a key role in overcoming difficulties and allowing firms to carry on competing at global level. The ability to adapt quickly to change is permanently bred into Microline’s DNA and the company has also applied this concept to the wide range of machines it offers.
The know-how and experience Microline has built-up over the years has made it a major player in the tissue market as well as in the food, cotton and cosmetics sectors. Microline offers complete lines for the food industry including conveyor belts, collation systems and outer packaging for coffee, tea, sugar, rice, bakery products, pasta, milk, yoghurt, ice-cream, etc
Microline's Tissue industry solutions have always been a feather in the cap of this Emilia-Romagna-based company. We supply high performing, top quality machines manufactured to the highest technological standards for this sector, using first-rate materials and components.
This coming 16th to 18th March Miami will be hosting Tissue World 2022. A stage upon which Microline intends to play a leading role, encouraged by its growing reputation in the Tissue sector that allows it to meet the entire needs of businesses of different types and sizes.
ML shrink wrappers are sturdy, flexible machines designed for packing products of different shapes and sizes in groups using two rolls of film (one upper and one lower). The machine uses heat-sealable and heat-shrinkable polyethylene plastic film (LDPE) to form a heat-shrinkable bundle.
Microline's AL series of wrapping machines are greatly appreciated by the Tissue sector for their efficiency: this machine range is designed for the horizontal packaging of products using plastic film wrapping material, which can be neutral or printed polyolefin (POF) or polyethylene (LDPE or MDPE).
