Purpose-designed strapping solution
25 January 2013
Menzies Distribution has place additional orders for bespoke strapping equipment from Mosca which is designed to bundle magazines picked and stacked using the specialist HS News System. Magazines of various sizes, i
Magazines of various sizes, including some with covermounted gifts, are picked into 'carrier baskets' which travel along the broadside of the machine. These are then automatically positioned, contents swept into position and the stack stabilised in readiness for strapping.
To enhance stack stability once the baskets are opened, Mosca devised a purposebuilt, close-coupled machine that quickly adds a stabilising longitudinal strap before the bundle is conveyed to a standard machine.
There can be one or two output lines on each packing system. A combination of two Mosca in-line strappers is used in conjunction with each HS output line: the bespoke Mosca RO-TR-4-KL and the standard RO-TR-I-5, both of which are capable of meeting the high speeds required. This combination can also be used to strap tote boxes, boosting flexibility.
