STRAP & STRETCH FILM PACKAGING SOLUTIONS

Coiling and wrapping systems suitable for coiling PVC corrugated pipes as well as smooth PE and PEX pipes. Available as single coiling head, for standard production speeds, or as double coiling heads for larger pipe sizes and faster lines.

fbb-logoA safe and effectively shipping from the production factory to a customer is nowadays becoming more and more important for pipe producers. Rain, dust, UV rays, too long and not safe journeys can destroy or ruin the pipes, therefore cause an economic loos or a stock of unutilized material. This is the reason way, more and more often, pipe producers are looking for alternative or complementary solutions to the classical packaging with PP straps.

No doubt, in automatic packaging industry, the key to effective and economical packaging lies within the “heart” of the machine, and the company FB Balzanelli, which has always been a leader in coiling and packing automation, confirms the rule. Always looking for new horizons and obviously always trying to anticipate the new trends of the market, from several years FB Balzanelli developed and installed a range of machines that can automatically wrap the coils, or creating pallets of coils and wrap them all with stretch film.

Referring to the coiling and wrapping machines, the company has developed both machines that can wrap the coils with stretch film without using PP straps, and machines that can wrap after the coil has been strapped (strap&stretch system). Obviously these coiling and wrapping systems are suitable for coiling PVC corrugated pipes as well as smooth PE and PEX pipes, and are available as single coiling head, for standard production speeds, or as double coiling heads for larger pipe sizes and faster lines. Thanks to the multi axes driven pipe guide, always tangent to the reel, all the coilers guarantee excellent winding quality, even at high speeds. Furthermore, with constant film tension control, these coilers are able to work perfectly with light or heavy pipe, with great coil care during the stretch film wrapping phase.

In addition to the coiling and wrapping system, the company FB Balzanelli also developed a sophisticated palletizing and wrapping system, which can easily be synchronized with the line and adapted to the most different requirements of the customers, both in capacity of production and in dimensions. Nowadays, in fact, coils handling and stocking station is becoming more and more essential for automation of the pipe production line, and the company FB Balzanelli can propose a palletizing system that allows an automatic coils stocking onto pallets at one coil every 20” rate. This means that this system can consequently handle more than one production line at a time. If we focus now for a while on the benefits that this system can give in terms of costs of production, we can easily understand that, apart from the improved product protection and the minimum packaging costs per load, a fully automatic palletizing system can also reduce the number of employees and time needed to unitize each pallet load.
