Muller Introduces No Touch No Tail (NT²) Upgrade for Octopus
Press release date: August 26, 2014
--Provides Durable Solution for Consistently Securing Stretch Wrapped Film Tails--
Chicago, IL, – Muller , a leading manufacturer of both innovative equipment and material load containment solutions, introduces a unique way to secure stretch wrap film tails with its No Touch No Tail (NT²) seaming device. It is ideal for the most demanding applications and eliminates the film tail, without contacting the load. Muller has also taken this new technology, previously only available on new Octopus ring wrapping equipment, and made it available on Muller’s former models.
“Loose or poorly secured film tails can cause a myriad of issues for manufacturers, including excess waste” says Tom Mutch, products and applications engineer, Muller. The NT² provides a perfectly finished wrap, minimizing waste and ensuring loads are properly secured during transportation. Customers utilizing automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) are also challenged with loose film tails blocking sensors- creating further complications and/or stopping production. “As is true with all Muller’s offerings, the NT² helps customers save considerable time and money” says Mutch. “Its advanced capabilities eliminate the need to re-wrap pallets due to loose tails unraveling the load and there is no longer a need to manually affix tails.”
The No Touch No Tail (NT²) works by seaming and cutting the film away from the product. This feature works especially well for rounded products, such as five-gallon pails or large coils, or for paper products that may be sensitive to a heat seal. During the last revolution in the film cycle, a counter-plate is placed between the sealing element and the load while a durable cutting element is used to cut the film. When released, the film automatically retracts back to the load ensuring an efficient and effective load containment solution. The cutting element also requires minimal maintenance and reduces downtime.
“This is a great opportunity for current Octopus users to utilize the latest technology while on a fixed budget” says Mutch.
