Stretch wrapping machinery manufacturer Arpac is launching its new
ergonomically designed Infrapak Sidewinder 2005 stretch wrapper at
the Promat 2005 Show, which runs from 10 to 13 January in Chicago.

The company claims that the semi-automatic machine offers manufacturers total wrapping control. It wraps down to the bottom of the pallet, and is available with 30" film carriage and dual turntables for greater throughput.

Cold and freezer packs are available for operation in extremely harsh temperatures, as is a pneumatic roping device for additional load support.

For more efficiency, an Automatic Film Tear Device (AFTD) tears the film automatically at the end of the wrapping cycle. And for fast, safe and easy film changeover the Sidewinder 2005 comes standard with the "EZ Quick Load" film mandrel.

The new ergonomic Infrapak Sidewinder 2005 design has a smaller footprint yet offers a larger wrap diagonal for space conscious facilities. The Sidewinder 2005 is available with a high profile turntable for forklift loading and low profile turntable for pallet-jack loading and can be customized with extended towers for taller loads and split frames for odd-sized larger loads.

In addition, the company is demonstrating its Infrapak​ PA-Series Plus Stretch Wrapper, a two-station turntable system that is designed to increase forklift operator productivity.

This automatic stretch wrapper is be completely accessible to forklift operators without getting off of the truck, and is therefore capable of reducing the operator's need to handle multiple loads.

Upon completion of the wrapping, the TIE-GR film tail capture mechanism automatically clamps, cuts, ties and secures the film to the pallet, preventing the stretch film from unravelling and leaving no film tails to worry about.

The PA-Series Plus is a part of a robust line of stretch wrapping equipment designed to maximise stretch film usage while ensuring the very best load unitisation. Standard features include user-friendly operator controls, Steel-It paint to provide durable scratch resistant to the surface and powered infeed conveyor.
