Retrofits for Your Stretch Wrapper

Wondering how you can make your Muller stretch wrapper more efficient?

Retrofitting your stretch wrapper with modern assemblies and upgrades is a cost effective way of improving stretch wrapper efficiency, while reducing stretch film costs. In many cases, a simple retrofit can restore an older stretch wrapper into an efficient stretch wrapping system, at a fraction of the cost of a new machine.

Here are just some of the many situations where one would benefit from retrofitting their existing stretch wrapper with a cost effective upgrade:
  • Increased film consumption (reduction in film pre-stretch).
  • Load retention issues.
  • Changes in product and/or wrapping requirements.
  • Downtime due to maintenance issues with older assemblies.
  • Availability and higher costs associated with some older assembly spare parts.
  • Increased speed and throughput requirements for existing production lines.

Muller offers a wide range of custom designed assembly upgrades that can be easily retrofitted to your older wrapper:

OctoThread Film Carriage – You are likely to pay for this upgrade by just the film savings alone. This enhanced Octopus carriage allows for much easier film threading, while offering our patented strain gauge technology for superior film force control. If your Octopus carriage is still using the old “Dancer Roller” style system, it’s time to take advantage of this upgrade and reduce your film usage, lessen maintenance needs and simplify operations.

Clamp/Cut/Seal Upgrade –If loose film tails are a problem, you may want to consider a new clamp/cut/seal mechanism. This upgrade utilizes impulse heating to ensure reliable film cutting and consistent affixing of film.

Pop-Up Conveyor –One option for providing improved load containment is to wrap the load down to the pallet. By utilizing a pop-up section of conveyor, the load will be lifted automatically to allow for wrapping to nearly the bottom of the pallet.

Composite Ring Kit –Minimize maintenance time by purchasing a new Composite Ring and a new Slip Ring assembly, pre-assembled to each other at the factory at no additional charge, and ready for easy installation.

Ring Frame Assembly –Improve your Octopus wrappers overall performance by retrofitting a modern Ring Frame assembly which comes complete with a new OctoThread Film Carriage, Film Clamp, and more. Upgrading the Ring Frame can provide significant increases in RPM thus improving throughput rates. It can also reduce vibration, and improve on the cost and availability of spare parts.

AB5 Kit –The new AB5 Film Feed Drive kit for the OctoThread Film Carriage replaces the older CMC Drive Board, Isolated Tachometer Follower, and Strain Gauge Amplifier, with a single easy to calibrate smaller unit.

And much, much more…
