Phoenix Wrappers ~ Rotary Ring Stretch Wrapping Technology

MONTREALPhoenix Wrappers introduced Rotary Stretch Wrapping Technology, a new line of Phoenix Rotary Ring Automatic (PRRA) rotary ring stretch wrappers. The new product line makes rotary ring machines available to even the smallest end user, allowing product manufacturers to take advantage of increased stretch wrapping production rates while reducing labor costs. The technology behind PRRA offers increased speed, film savings and flexibility. This new line features a revolutionary design resulting in savings in annual films compared to conventional rotary arm and turntable style wrappers. It uses a wrapping ring concept that eliminates the need for extra film, passes up the load to secure top wraps and then back down to the clamp for final tail treatment. This process produces a savings of 30-plus feet of stretch film while still applying the same required load retention wraps. Due to its ability to start and stop the cycle anywhere on the load, the Phoenix PRRA rotary ring pallet wrapper allows for virtually unlimited wrap patterns and reduces stretch film costs.

Unlike a traditional turntable or rotary arm machine that must support and rotate thousands of pounds of mass just to apply the stretch film, the PRRA rotates only the carriage itself. The result is a faster low-mass rotation system" that, due to the limited stress and strain on the working component, is better suited for 24-hour, seven-days a week applications.

The new PRRA product line offers two models: the PRRA-4000, which offers 40 rpm and more than 100 loads per hour, and the PRRA-2100, which offers 21 rpm and more than 70 loads per hour; both with an 80-inch wrap height capacity.
