Stretch wrap film system raises efficiency
June 28, 2011
ITW Muller introduces its OctoMAX™ system to help manufacturers increase productivity and decrease costs. Available as an enhancement to the ITW Muller Octopus line of new stretch wrap equipment or as a retrofit to most existing machines, OctoMAX utilizes proprietary hardware and software to monitor and measure equipment and film effectiveness. The system enables customers to maximize the performance of their machine by making sure the optimal settings, prestretch gears, number of wraps and amount of film are set at all times, and also maximizes savings by monitoring the performance of their film.
The system provides real-time simple and actionable information. If something goes wrong with either the machine or film, the system is connected through the internet and will immediately notify the user via e-mail. The information is also available on the enhanced operator interface or HMI display. Users can visit their personal online portal to view historical data and download reports.
