Orbital Wrapper Manufacturer reports 45% increase in smart controls automated wrapping systems

Packaging machinery manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, Pa., has reported a 45 percent increase for 2022 in year-over-year sales for its Smart Controls orbital wrapping machines. Following a 55 percent increase in sales from 2021, the Smart Controls option features proprietary technology that enables the company’s semi-automated TAB Wrapper Tornado Standard orbital wrappers to operate as automated orbital wrappers. The Smart Controls automatically set the dispensing unit at its home location in the wrapping ring, apply the stretch wrap around the pallet and load, cut the stretch wrap, and ready the plastic film for the next pallet load, all by a single press and release of start and stop buttons on a remote control by the forklift driver.

Available on the company’s three TAB Wrapper Tornado Standard models, which offer 80-, 100- and 115-inch wrapping rings, the Smart Controls may be integrated with the original corded remote control or with the company’s optional wireless remote control package, which enables the forklift driver to operate the entire process without leaving the seat of the lift truck. The Smart Controls orbital wrappers are designed and manufactured at the company’s Reading, Pa. headquarters and may be retrofitted onto TAB Wrapper Tornado Standard models in the field.
