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 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.
Line layout design should be aimed at efficient product conveyance and, at the same time, optimum production flow, thus saving as much space as possible. The Microline engineering department is ready to help the customer design new layouts or alter existing ones
One of the strong points of a Microline machine is its versatility. Indeed, a common feature of the entire range of solutions is that of being able to work, depending on the configuration, with different materials, products and sizes, thus satisfying constantly-changing production requirements.
