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:
Fast Wrap 1250 is a continuous-motion bundler for AFH paper rolls commonly used in industrial settings. It is designed to arrange, collate and bag an extensive size range. The machine features a continuous-flow packaging cycle, which allows the pitch to be optimised according to the cutting and sealing length.
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 increasing popularity of non-woven products on the market led Microline to develop specific solutions to manage wrapping stages. This material is often converted in a similar way to folded products typical of the tissue sector, such as napkins and table cloths
Wrapping systems for cotton pads (for make-up removal) and cotton buds make up a significant part of the Microline product range. We have designed a side-loading case packing machine combined with a pick & place feeding system for make-up removal pads.
Microline offers a full portfolio of products for secondary packaging. These offer the same technology and attention to detail that customers have come to expect from our primary packaging machinery, with the added advantage that our case packers and palletisers can be adapted to a vast range of products.
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.
