New Bumper Guards Safeguard Orbital Wrapping Machines
TAB Wrapper Tornado® to be Featured at Promat Booth #S5615
Reading, PA: Packaging machinery manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, Pa. (www.tabwrapper.com), has unveiled new bumper guards on its TAB Wrapper TornadoR line of orbital stretch-wrapping machines. Offered as an option on the company's standard and custom models, the new bumper guards feature precision, 16- gauge steel centered at the front of the orbital wrapper to provide a sturdy barrier that safeguards the machine from contact with lift trucks. As an additional safeguard, the bumper guards are covered in vinyl safety tape in a striking pattern that coordinates with the safety tape demarking the wrapping ring to provide lift truck drivers with a visual alert.
The durable bumper guards add to the series of designed-in safety features included as standard on the line of orbital wrapping machines such as steel machine guarding, multiple, built-in emergency stops, and a clever, side-access door for plastic film roll replacement that automatically cuts power to the machine when opened. The bumper guards are designed to slide into the base of the 40-, 80- and 100-inch TAB Wrapper Tornado models and can be retrofit on machines already in the field.
To be shown at Promat booth #S5615 on April 8th, 2019, in Chicago, IL, the patent-pending orbital wrappers automatically wrap plastic film 360 degrees around and under a pallet load to create a single, secure load that remains intact in transport and storage. The packaging machines are manufactured in the company's Reading, Pa. headquarters and ship fully assembled with a full warranty, ready to plug in and operate.
