S Pattern Film Carriage

The innovative new S Series carriage is now available as an option on most models of Orion stretch wrappers.

First unveiled at PackExpo in Chicago last November, the S Series is the first OEM film carriage to combine the safety of drop-in style film loading with the economy & performance of “S” pattern film threading. Film loading is safe and easy…simply pull the loose film end across the open carriage and drop it in. Closing the door routes the film automatically through the powered rollers in an “S” pattern.

The “S” arrangement minimizes the stretch gap between rollers and greatly reduces “neck-down” (the narrowing of the film width). It also increases the film-to-roll contact area which helps maintain good pre-stretch even as the rollers wear. The result is better film yield and cost savings.

ABB – Competitive Advantage

Robots have the power to increase productivity and reduce labour costs, but can they actually create a competitive advantage for your business?

In highly automated industries, like automotive and electronics manufacturing, robots have greatly improved costs and efficiencies. But robot technology is now so common in these environments it is no longer a competitive advantage but a competitive requirement. Robots are simply "a cost of doing business" in these industries.

Industries where automation lags, however, are where robotics can make a real difference. For companies in these industries, even a modest investment in basic robot technology can provide a real competitive advantage. The prospect of "game changing" technology is especially appealing for small & medium enterprises (SME’s) with limited capital trying to compete against larger rivals.
