Fast and secure thanks to ultrasonics
The integrated SoniXs unit saves energy by using ultrasonics instead of conventional heat methods to seal the belt ends. At the same time, it has a longer service life, is quieter and produces no emissions. Compared to machine types using a hot-wedge unit, service life increases by up to 50%, while costs for wear parts are reduced by up to 80%. Noise levels are only a quarter of those of conventional machines.
Wear- and maintenance-free drives
We have been using wear-free direct drives in our strapping units since the early nineties. They not only save on service-intensive mechanics, but also guarantee smooth operation with very low friction. At the same time, they are virtually wear- and maintenance-free. Thanks to their high efficiency, the units are extremely energy efficient.
Electronics instead of pneumatics
We are increasingly replacing energy-intensive pneumatic and hydraulic drives with electric systems. These are used, for example, to generate the pressing force in pallet packing presses or to feed the edge protection when strapping stacks of corrugated board. As a result, the strapping machines operate extremely quickly, safely and energy efficiently, thus conserving resources.
Our PET straps are environmentally friendly: they are produced from 100% recycled bottle flakes in one of Europe’s most modern plants in Muckental in the Odenwald region of Germany. The necessary energy is generated by the solar panels on the roof of the production hall. After use, the strips can be easily returned to the recycling loop.
Our goal for the future is that not only our entire portfolio will meet the label’s criteria, but that they will become the universal industry standard.
