Orion Introduces New Rotary Flex Model Stretch Wrappers

Jun 10, 2008

Collierville, TN - Orion Packaging Systems introduced today its new Flex RTD and Flex RTA rotary tower stretch wrapping machines. The new Rotary Tower models are the latest offering in the popular Flex Series, which delivers high performance and efficiency, as well as the long lasting durability that has been the hallmark of Orion machines. Both the Flex RTD (Rotary Tower Deluxe) and Flex RTA (Rotary Tower Automatic) feature Orion's reliable Insta-Thread film delivery system which provides a standard prestretch rate of 260%. Orion's powered prestretch ensures strong, cost effective unitizing with film savings that equate to every one foot of rolled film becoming 3.6 feet of wrapped film on the load.

Orion's new rotary tower stretch wrappers are ideal for customers that need to unitize tall, heavy, fragile, or unstable loads. Orion's Rotary Flex models are also an excellent option for customers with limited floor space which prefer not to use ramps and turntables. Orion's Rotary Flex models feature 16 RPM variable speed towers, structural steel construction, heavy duty chain and sprocket drive, and unlimited maximum load capacity. For enhanced ease-of-use, RT models provide a powerful PLC controller with a digital Human Machine Interface, low maintenance AC motors, Orion's precise RevoLogicTM wrap counting and positioning system, and a tower mounted obstacle sensing system.

Available options on the RT Series include a 30" film carriage, increased film stretch ratios for greater material cost savings, and extensions for loads over 80" high or unusually wide. The RT Series can also be upgraded to operate at 22 RPM and with several perimeter protection options.

Orion offers a lifetime warranty on its Insta-Thread stretch rollers, a five year warranty on the frame, and a four year warranty on other major components.

With the new Rotary 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 rotary 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 Mark Collins, Orion Vice President of Sales.
