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:
The packaging world has been abuzz with news of Industry 4.0 for years, and particularly technologies for line automation and remote assistance. Few companies can boast Microline’s experience in this field. This Emilia-Romagna-based company has always put its customers first and foremost, seeking the best ways to ensure prompt and ongoing support.
Numerous factors have contributed to the market success of the AL80. This roll packaging unit is an ideal blend of strength and performance. Its packaging material requirements have been cut by using very fine film and a packaging process without any waste trimmings.
The first order placed by the Neapolitan company was for a side-loading case packer that was fitted to an interfolded towel and toilet paper line. The second was for a dedicated high-performance line for hospital paper rolls production, while the third order was fitted downstream of a state-of-the-art interfolded towel and toilet paper line.
