Flow Wrapping Options
The soft jaw feature, unique to Bradman Lake, prevents misplaced products from jamming in the end seal jaws. The drive motor torque is constantly monitored and any increase above normal running level causes the jaw to reverse direction. This allows the misplaced product to pass through the jaws and produces a long pack that is rejected from the machine discharge. When the obstruction is clear of the jaws the machine automatically resumes normal operation.
Other electronic features include No Gap No Crimp and No Product No Bag.
Reel to Reel Splicing
Automatic splicing is a standard feature on a system machine and optional on a ‘stand alone’ machine. A manual splice is also available for ‘stand alone’ machines.
Tear Tape Application
Self-adhesive tape is applied to the wrapping material which provides a more consistent method for opening the pack.
Automatic Web Tracking
Maintains position of wrapping material presentation from the reel providing increased efficiency and productivity whilst keeping material width to a minimum.
Servo Reel Unwind
Utilises servo driven reel mandrels which replaces the mechanical braking system, used on high linear wrapping material speeds.
Discharge Top Control
Provides a consistent transfer onto the discharge conveyor therefore ensuring a regular pitch between product when interfacing with downstream equipment.
Discharge Batch Counter
Delivers a pre-selected count of wrapped product to aid the hand packing process.
To mount various coders.
Empty Bag Removal
Vacuum system removes empty flow wraps prior to discharge.
