Wulftec

Automatic Side Seal Strapping Machine

Model: VarioMaster 9440

High performance side seal strapping machine for boxes or pallet loads. Can be integrated into conveyor line. Strapping head is side mounted on the arch and movable. During the strapping cycle, the strapping head indexes towards the load before tensioning sequence, so tensioning and sealing are done right against the side of the load. The bottom section of the strapping arch can be a standard undertrack style, or an electric motor driven pallet bayonet for "through-pallet" strapping, or a combination of both.

  • The entire electrical installation is pre- and “hard” wired according to UL 508A, VDE0113 and ENC60105. All cables are conduit covered or assembled within chain channeling when connected to any moving parts of the machine.
  • 100% structural steel construction
  • Ability to strap with polyester or polypropylene strapping without parts change.
  • Superior Electrical/Electronic Design including Allen Bradley Micro Logix 1200 PLC logic control & Allen Bradley Panel View 600+MONO.
  • 1 x GS 41N high performance strapping head with indexing mechanism, head moves on linear bearings toward load side, electric motion through direct rack/pinion, and load detection sensor. Total stroke of head movement is 30" from side of the arch.
  • Available with pallet bayonet and/or under track.
  • Strap dispenser with pulley block, strap return storage with electric brake.
  • Up to 8 straps per minute may be applied, depending on strapping arch and package dimensions, strap quality and strap tension required. Maillis PET, Maillis polypropylene or other manufacturer strapping may be used without any special adjustment to the strapping head.
  • Dry contact communication to apply the strap (apply strap and strapping done).
  • Internal potentiometers allow for adjustment of the strap tension for each head.
