Orbital wrapper manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, Pa. (www.tabwrapper.com), has introduced a touch-screen control system on its fully automated TAB Wrapper Tornado Perfect Storm wrapping systems. Included as standard equipment at no extra charge, the touch-screen HMI features a clear, colorful, visual menu structure with built-in training guides for intuitively easy setup, operation and preventative maintenance. The video training guides present operating instructions on screen at the machine rather than in print, on DVD, or online for fast learning, superior retention and convenient review at any time. Setting the wrapping parameters based on the pallet load, replacing empty stretch-film rolls, and understanding the designed-in safety features are among the instructional videos included.
Developed to enable entry level workers to safely manage the wrapping function, the new touch-screen control panel is included on all three TAB Wrapper Tornado Perfect Storm models and on custom models. The TAB Wrapper Tornado Perfect Storm automatically wraps plastic film 360 degrees around and under a pallet and its load to create a secure, unitized load that resists shifting during delivery, in-plant staging and on racks in storage. The fully automated stretch-wrap machines are designed and manufactured in the company’s Reading, Pennsylvania headquarters and delivered with a warranty ready for installation.
