The Only Ring Wrapping Machine Your Business Will Ever Need
For any industry where speed, efficiency and reliability are essential factors for success – and, let’s face it, these are vital for any business – FROMM Packaging Systems has the ideal packaging solutions, trusted by companies across the world. From our state-of-the-art Octomeca ring wrapping machine to eco-friendly airpads, we have the solution you need to make your life a lot easier.
This article will specifically take a closer look at the Octomeca ring wrapping machine – or series of machines, to be exact. But, before we get there, why choose such a key machine within your production line from FROMM and Octomeca?
FROMM is an internationally established, Swiss-based company that was founded in 1947 and has been delivering world-class packaging solutions to a vast range of industries since then. In 2017, we joined forces with Octomeca – a Finnish tech company, founded in 1989. Together, we design, manufacture and distribute premium-class stretch wrappers.
These top-of-the-range machines include the aforementioned ring wrapping machine series, also known as the OMC V-Series.
How do the Octomeca V-Series machines work?
The product is transported through a vertically rotating ring through which it can either be completely wrapped (using a spiral technique), or locally provided with narrow foil bands (also known as band wrapping or roping). Bunks or beams can also be wrapped and secured to the package for additional support and ease of handling. We offer a range of options to meet a range of industry needs and, ultimately, the machine size is defined by the maximum diagonal of the product that needs to be wrapped.
In fact, we design and manufacture the largest vertical ring wrappers in the world, supplying our solutions to a vast array of industries. For extremely large items, like EPS blocks, we provide the innovative OMC-VO machine – instead of a traditional ring, it uses a rectangular track, which is based on the product dimensions.
Because of the range of industries we service, there are a number of requirements our equipment should meet. Main features that are available to meet specific demands include:
- Integrated top sheet or product end closing equipment
- Automatic roll changers
- Power-Pre-Stretch carriage
- Height adjustment kit for big load size compensation
- Load support rollers on the top and/or side
- Wrapzone conveyors for various loads
Aside from manufacturing and supplying high-quality stretch wrappers, such as our ring wrapping machine range, we also focus on delivering excellent service and maintenance. Taking care of our customers is central to our business, and we aim to deliver long-lasting, hassle-free solutions. Contact us for more information.
