At Modex from March 9-12, 2020 in Atlanta, Ga., orbital wrapper manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, Pa. (www.tabwrapper.com), plans to introduce portable TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrapping machines that may be moved safely without requiring a lift truck. Featuring durable casters and mounting brackets, the optional portability package was developed to ease movement around warehouses, production lines, shipping departments and other locations. Workers simply turn a crank to lower the casters onto the floor and raise the machine off the floor to allow smooth movement from one location to another. Once in place, the casters may be raised in seconds and the machine lowered onto the floor, ready to plug in and operate.
Offered in addition to the built-in fork tubes included as standard that allow movement by forklift, the portable TAB Wrapper Tornado stretch-wrappers are ideal for packaging and material handling managers interested in automating the wrapping process at multiple assembly lines and other locations without investing in multiple machines. By moving the machine to the product, the portability package reduces product handling and minimizes the risk of damage to products in process.
The patent-pending TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrappers wrap plastic film 360 degrees around and under a pallet and its load to secure the load to the pallet and create a sturdy, unitized load without banding, boxing or strapping. The wrapping systems are designed and manufactured at the company’s Reading, Pa. headquarters and delivered with a warranty ready for installation.
