Glenview, IL
(April 9, 2018) – Muller LCS, a leading manufacturer of both innovative equipment and material load containment solutions and part of the Signode Industrial Group, showcases a reliable and economical solution for wrapping pallets with its Octopus “1717C” automatic rotary ring stretch wrapper at Modex 2018 in Atlanta, Georgia. The Octopus 1717C is competitively priced to automatic rotary arm and turntable machines in the 30-50 LPH range.  With its compact size the new wrapper is versatile for a variety of applications making it a perfect machine for most distribution environments.

“We built the Octopus 1717C to give customers all the benefits they’ve come to expect from our Octopus rotary ring stretch wrap machines in a smaller footprint while providing optimal load containment and minimizing film usage” says Joe Albert, Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing, Global Wrapping Technologies, Signode Industrial Group. “It’s also a highly intuitive machine to operate and install considering its capabilities.”

The Octopus “1717C” also comes equipped with Muller’s patented Easy S Film Carriage which enables simple film loading, maximizes pre-stretch performance and minimizes wear. Compared to traditional “W” wrap systems, the positive contact of the “S” wrap pattern improves pre-stretch levels, can better handle a variety of films, and significantly lowers the overall cost of ownership.

“We are always looking for ways to exceed customers’ expectations,” says Albert. “The Octopus 1717 is an ideal automatic machine for manufacturers looking to increase productivity without compromising space and allowing the customer to stay within budget restraints.”
