--New Machine Enhances Cobra Line of Semi-Automatic Stretch Wrappers--
Arlington Heights, IL - ITW Muller, a leading manufacturer of both innovative stretch wrap equipment and high quality stretch wrap film, introduces the latest addition to its stretch wrapping solutions, the Cobra Plus Semi-Automatic Stretch Wrapping Machine. The Cobra Plus is ideal for manufacturers looking for a versatile machine that can wrap large and oddly shaped loads that are unstable or very heavy.
"We enhanced the Cobra line with the Cobra Plus to give our customers more flexibility," says Dan Schmidt, Business Development Manager at ITW Muller. "Given the advanced functionality of the HMI, durability of the design, and ease of adapting to varying load sizes, this stretch wrapper can meet the changing needs of our customers today and in the future."
The rotating arm technology keeps pallet loads in place while stretch wrapping. The arm can be easily adjusted to achieve a wrapping diagonal of 78" or 87"- offering versatility at no additional cost. The Cobra Plus comes standard with an independent floor stand, but can also be mounted to a column or wall.
A motorized power pre-stretch system with adjustable film tension control guarantees Cobra Plus users optimal film usage. Film tension control ensures superior load containment and helps eliminate film breaks and product damage. The Cobra Plus is also equipped with a touch-screen HMI for simple operation and versatility. The program includes controls that allow for adjustment to the number of wraps, wrap pattern, film tension, overlap, overwrap and speed.
"We are consistently looking for ways to meet the needs of our clients," says Schmidt. "Ever-changing demands in the warehouse and plant floor require flexible solutions - and the Cobra Plus is the answer to these demands."
The Cobra Plus can wrap up to 35 pallets per hour. It can also pre-stretch film up to 260% and wrap pallets up to 116" high or an 86"diagonal.
