Durable construction and user-friendly features deliver high performance

Collierville, TN - Orion Packaging Systems introduced today the first two models of its new Flex Series semi-automatic turntable stretch wrapping machines - the Flex HPD and Flex LPD. The new Flex models deliver state-of-the-art performance and efficiency, as well as the durability and reliability that have long been the hallmark of Orion machines.

The Flex HPD (High Profile Deluxe) and Flex LPD (Low Profile Deluxe) both feature 5,000 lb. load capacity, 14 RPM turntable, high performance 260% film delivery, and electronic film tension control to provide superior efficiency and value per load. For enhanced ease-of-use, the Orion Flex models provide a powerful PLC controller with a digital Human Machine Interface, low maintenance AC motors, "drop lock" safety system, a height sensing photoeye, forklift portability from front or rear, and easy "drop in" stretch film loading. The new Flex models also include a structural steel base to provide years of durable service and reliability.

Available options on the Flex HPD and LPD include an extended mast, extended base, 30" film carriage, scale package, film roping, and prestretch rates up to 350%. Orion supports its industry leading prestretch system with a lifetime warranty on its prestretch rollers.

With the new Flex Series, Orion has combined its expertise from more than two decades of stretch packaging engineering and manufacturing excellence with cutting edge technology to provide customers with exceptional performance, durability and reliability in even the most severe industrial environments.

"In designing our new Flex HPD and LPD stretch wrappers, we maintained the durable, reliable construction and high performance film delivery that our customers expect from Orion while adding advanced features for usability and performance that deliver greater value and efficiency per load," said Glenn Greene, Orion General Manager and Vice President.

Orion's new Flex Series will be featured at Pack Expo in Las Vegas, October 15-17 at Booth C629. For more information about the new Flex Series, contact Orion at 800-333-6556 or visit
