Orion Packaging Systems: Automatic film roll changer
The automatic film roll changer (AFRC) from Orion Packaging Systems (Collierville, TN) discards an empty film core and loads a fresh roll of stretch film onto a pallet strech wrapper.
Available on Orion’s ma-44 tower soon on FA machines. AFRC can run an entire shift without the need for an operator. A carousel holds 6 film rolls on spindles. As an empty roll is discarded from the carriage the carousel rotates and a new film roll is lifted off and onto the carriage.
