Tekkra Triad System Shrink Wrapping and Bundling TechnologyHOMER, Mich. — Tekkra, powered by ProMach, introduces at Pack Expo Nov. 2-5 in Chicago the Triad entry-level shrink wrapping and bundling system. This innovative, modular machine can accommodate one of three types of Tekkra infeed systems, each of which meets a different application need – manual-load for tray wrapping and/or bundling, powered side infeed for shrink bundling, and powered in-line for tray shrink wrapping. (Tekkra Pack Expo Booth # N-5325).

The Triad is compact, rugged, and easily rolled to various locations within the customer’s facility. The PLC/HMI ensures user friendly, reliable operation. Modularity means that in the future the customer can purchase and bolt on a different infeed to satisfy new operational requirements – the machine grows with the customer. Modularity also means fast delivery from Tekkra and their distributors. The customer does not have to wait for a custom designed and manufactured solution.

The Triad produces bulls-eye closures, which are ideal for stabilization of trays and bundle packaging in warehouses and repack rooms in the beverage, building materials, dairy, food, industrial products, personal care, and pharmaceutical industries.

When ordering a Triad unit, the customer specifies which of the three infeed systems best meets their application. The pusher option is a manual load station with palm button activation. The pusher is ideal for low-volume packing and repacking of trays and also bundling packages. The powered side infeed is designed for automatic shrink bundling. The powered inline option handles automatic tray shrink wrapping.

“The price/performance of the new Triad is exceptional in terms of ruggedness and dependability,” said Eric Vorm, Vice President and General Manager of Tekkra. “Modularity provides flexibility and gives customers options for growth. The overall design means that we can quickly ship the Triad with the appropriate infeed. The Triad is a great solution for warehouse and repack rooms with low- to moderate-volume operations.”
