Octopus Automatic Pallet Stretch Wrappers

By Materials Handling Pty Ltd
  • Octopus Automatic Pallet Stretch Wrappers

The Octopus fully automatic, in line, stationary, pallet stretch wrappers, rotate a wrapping ring at high speed around the pallet load, operating at between 0-80 pallets per hour depending on the model, pallet height, and wrapping programme selected.

High pallet throughput is achieved because the pallet remains stationary on its conveyor, and rotation of a turntable is avoided.

The Octopus is available in various models Octopus Compact, Junior, BTS and BFTS. The machines all incorporate driven power pre-stretch PPS, easy load film threading, safety fence guards and lock out door, and safety cross beam light barriers to fully conform with all OH+S requirements.

The Octopus is a 'state of the art' pallet wrapper and over 3000 machines operate worldwide, with over 35 machines operating in Australia.

Since the Octopus is located over a conveyor, one Octopus machine can, in many cases, replace two (2) rotary machines, saving space, additional conveyors, labour, materials handling equipment and installation costs which all result in project economies and savings.
