Orion’s Pallet-Wrapping Capabilities Can Improve Safety and Efficiency
Orion Packaging Systems, a division of ProMach, will demonstrate its latest innovations in stretch-wrapping technology. Orion’s new Dual Carriage MA-DX2 stretch-wrapping system uses dual 30” Insta-Thread film carriages and 28 RPM counter-balanced rotary arms to wrap up to 100 pallets an hour. See how easy it is to gain newfound efficiencies through high-speed wrapping. Orion will also showcase the differences between entry-level semi-automatic stretch wrappers versus hand wrapping. While many organizations still hand-wrap loads and pallets, efficiencies through time, film savings, safety, load stability and others factors can be achieved by installing an entry-level semi-automatic stretch wrapping machine. A case study shows how the Orion MA-DX LoPro Drag Chain Conveyor System helped a beverage distribution center greatly improve its speed and efficiency in wrapping and moving tall pallets of product.
