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:
AL80 and FAST WRAP1250 spearhead Microline’s production range for paper roll packaging. The machines offer a continuous operating cycle, which ensures higher performance, lower energy consumption and better efficiency for optimum management of different product sizes.
The complete shutdown of businesses in 2020 caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has gradually led to raw material shortages and rising energy costs. So, in these unprecedented times, companies desperately need sustainable solutions capable of saving available resources, whilst avoiding unnecessary wastage. Microline’s new AFH roll bundler is the ideal solution
With its firm commitment to sustainability, Microline manufactures machinery that affords significant waste reduction and optimised energy consumption. Microline also believes strongly in the use of new environmentally-sustainable materials. For this reason, it has partnered with Slovenian company Di Mucci d.o.o.
Microline is a hi-tech business capable of adapting its solutions to suit every single customer’s needs. Indeed, the company’s latest offerings are the result of careful analysis that has considered both market requirements and end-consumer needs. An example is the Fast Wrap 1250.
Developed to meet Tissue industry requirements, ECO WRAP 1050 is one of the latest additions to the Microline range of versatile, user-friendly bundlers. ECO Wrap is a bundler capable of using various types of plastic film as the wrapping material, thus avoiding wastage of materials and energy.
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.
