Fast Wrap 1250 is the new Microline bundler designed for the Tissue sector. It is a continuous-motion flow wrapper for AFH paper rolls (industrial use) designed to arrange, collate and bag an extensive size range.
The company’s aim with this new multi-pack bundler is to provide customers with version 2.0 of its existing range of bundlers, ensuring improved performance and even greater flexibility.
Production speed is the first feature in which Microline decided to invest time and research: indeed, Fast Wrap 1250 can pack 25 bags per minute without compromising the eventual quality of the products contained therein and the packaging’s appearance. Operation is based on the same principle as the other Microline wrappers that are already a firm market favourite: wrapping is achieved by placing the film around the prearranged rolls, joining and subsequently sealing the edges at the top of the bag. Front and rear sealing is performed by a hot bar self-centring system (box-motion cycle) that separates the bundles.
One of the main benefits of the new Fast Wrap 1250 is the extensive size range available with the possibility of performing most size changeovers direct from the control panel. A feature than makes the machine extremely flexible and readily adaptable to the requirements of a very large customer base.
Upon request, the machine can process neutral, neutral with stepper-type label insertion or preprinted film.
In line with the company philosophy for every Microline-developed design, Fast Wrap also carries out the packaging process without producing packaging material waste or trimmings, thus avoiding downtime for waste removal, disposal costs and unnecessary wastage of the packaging material. Microline corporate philosophy also enjoys additional benefits by cutting energy running costs and reducing the quantity of packaging material utilised compared to its competitors by between 10% and 30%.
A faster, but at the same time versatile, bundler providing a response to the tissue sector’s increasing production needs without forsaking Microline technology‘s trademark quality and reliability.
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.
