WRAP250 - Tissue wrapper

WRAP250 is the answer to the need of a high-speed single to multi-roll wrapper for tissue products.

This machine overcomes by 25% the market average maximum capacity of packs per minute, requiring only a single packaging line to produce up to 1000 rolls per minute, avoiding production limitation for rewinders. The Smart Overhead trolley allows continuous motion transfer during folding, while the Push-Pull technology leaves only one finger set between two packs.
The Never-Stop Technology, embedded in WRAP250, checks the correct rolls configuration immediately before the elevator, identifying any rolls that are:

  • out of shape (tail)
  • out of position (tipped)
  • incorrectly launched (missing or extra count) inside the flying bar

NEST - Gripping head for palletizing systems

IMA TMC packaging lines can be completed with fully customizable end of line solutions.

When handling tissue products, it is essential to rely on technologies that allow products palletizing without damages. Traditional compression and suction technologies are ideal when handling products of a certain stiffness, but may not be suitable for handling very delicate or soft products such as bundles of paper rolls. In this sense, IMA TMC has developed the new NEST: a patented layer gripping head solution that uses unidirectional chains, lifting products from below.

NEST technology innovates the traditional pliers: in addition to having all the peculiarities of a bottom-gripping plier, thanks to which the product is supported and not crushed, stressed or deformed by contact, NEST has the advantage of having the same overall dimensions both in withdrawal and in storage. This makes it possible to have up to 50% less space than a parallel opening gripper and to be able to create multi-line and multi-product palletizing solutions in smaller spaces.
