 Mach 1 SONIC LPX Pallet Stretch Wrapper

This is the flagship Mach 1 product, meeting the demand for a heavy duty, low profile turntable, semi-automatic, with pre-stretch, capable of wrapping industry standard load sizes (with oversize options), that is forklift portable (front and rear), and has an array of available options to meet most needs.

AdvantagesDisadvantages
  • Semi-automatic machine, does not require the active participation of the operator throughout the whole wrap cycle, allowing him/her to work productively elsewhere while the load is wrapped automatically
  • Pre-stretch film carriage maximizes the stretching of the film, significantly reducing the cost of packaging per load
  • Pre-stretch produces superior shipping package
  • Full array of available options accommodates needs for over-sized loads and wrap pattern variations
  • Fork lift portable
  • No air supply required
  • Minimal installation costs
  • Requires operator to manually load the turntable, attach the film to the load, start the wrap cycle, cut and seal the film, and remove the load from the turntable
  • Load supporting turntable has maximum load weight limitations
  • May not be suitable for unstable loads which cannot accommodate rotation
  • Turntable wearing parts require more frequent maintenance
  • Need ramp to load with pallet trucks or powered-walkies

Usage Scenario

Basic pallet wrapping needs in a low volume distribution warehouse.


Pallet Load Volume:
  Light (from 2 pallets per day)

Maximum Load Weight:  Typically from 500 to 4,000 lbs, but never over 5,000 lbs

Load Sizes:  Typically product and/or pallet sizes up to 48" wide x 48" long, but never over 56" x 56"

Maximum Load Height (including pallet):  Typically up to 6 ft (72"), but never over 86" high.

Product Handling:  The wrapper will be loaded and unloaded using a manual pallet truck / pallet jack / pump truck / jigger.  A fork lift truck can also be used.


Recommended

Model:

  • Mach 1 SONIC LPX

Options:

  • Heavy duty standard sized ramp for manual pallet jack ...
    (12" flat and 48" incline by 48" wide)
  • Independent settings switch for 3 load types
    (Allows all machine functions to be set differently for up to 3 different load types.
    A very easy to use and inexpensive option that helps to accommodate for a need to wrap different load types in different ways)

Other options to consider:

  • Heavy duty larger sized ramp for powered walkies [walk behind and ride-on]
    (24" flat and 48" incline by 48" wide)
  • Height detection photo-eye upgrade for dark or glossy products
    (Applicable where product characteristics may prevent proper operation of auto height feature)

Usage Scenario

Advanced pallet wrapping needs in a low to medium volume distribution warehouse.


Pallet Load Volume:
  Light (from 2 pallets per day) up to 30 pallets per hour (conditional)

Maximum Load Weight:  Not over 5,000 lbs

Load Sizes:  Standard product and/or pallet sizes up to 56" x 56", with options available for larger sized loads

Maximum Load Height (including pallet):  Standard up to 86" high, with options available for taller loads

Product Handling:  The wrapper will be loaded and unloaded using a manual pallet truck / pallet jack / pump truck / jigger and/or powered-walkie.  A fork lift truck can also be used.


Recommended

Model:

  • Mach 1 SONIC LPX

Options:

  • Heavy duty standard sized ramp for manual pallet jack ...
    (12" flat and 48" incline by 48" wide)
  • Independent settings switch for 3 load types(Allows all machine functions to be set differently for up to 3 different load types. A very easy to use and inexpensive option that helps to accommodate for a need to wrap different load types in different ways)

Other options to consider:

  • Heavy duty larger sized ramp for powered walkies [walk behind and ride-on]
    (24" flat and 48" incline by 48" wide)
  • Base extension
    (Increase maximum load size from an 80" diagonal [56" x 56" load] to suit requirement)
  • Tower extension
    (Increase maximum wrap height capacity from 86" to suit requirement)
  • Height detection photo-eye upgrade for dark or glossy products
    (Applicable where product characteristics may prevent proper operation of auto height feature)
  • Automatic end of cycle film cut
    (Useful in high production rate environments where minimizing operational steps is important to increase handling efficiencies)
  • Base mounted adjustable roping bar
    (This option allows the precise positioning of the lowest level the film is applied to the load or pallet)

Delivery: Shipping services or factory pick up are available. Production lead times vary according to season, model, and options chosen. Please contact us for details.

Mach 1 SONIC LPS - 240h, 3D.jpg"Gentle Cycle" Control Option

Applicable to models:

 

Comments:

  • Demonstrates "Gentle Cycle" control option, for very light or unstable pallet loads
  • Included at no extra cost in standard controls package
  • This delicate cycle provides a slower rotation of the turntable during the first half of the wrap cycle until the carriage reaches the top of the load and one layer of film is applied. The turntable then accelerates to high speed for the rest of the wrapping cycle
  • The slower rotation speed is user adjustable
  • If other loads are to be wrapped using a "normal" cycle, we recommend pairing this option with the "Independent settings switch for 3 load types" option which allows operators to quickly and easily select between different load wrap types with the flip of a switch
  • NOTE: no sound in video

Video Features:

  • Operator starts the wrap cycle
  • Compete automatic wrap cycle demonstrated
    • begin rotation at slower speed

* All products are designed for operation in a typical warehouse environment (dry, clean, heated).

Options may be available to adapt these machines for operation in other environments (eg. cold, wet, dusty, etc.).

Operation of these machines in conditions for which they were not designed might reduce the life expectancy of the machine and/or negate the warranty.
