Octopus C stretch wrapper


Signode Industrial Group, a leading manufacturer of a broad spectrum of packaging consumables, tools, software and equipment to optimize end-of-line packaging operations and protect product in transit, will display a wide variety of its customer-focused innovations at ProMat 2019 at booth# S1641.  With 88 manufacturing facilities across six continents, the company does business under more than two dozen highly respected brands throughout the world. At the booth, attendees can see the innovative Octopus™ automatic rotary ring stretch wrapper and BXT3 series strapping tools in action and learn more about the StorFast cart-based, high-density automated storage and retrieval system.

“We look forward to sharing our unique pallet load containment and warehousing solutions with ProMat attendees,” says Mike Stein, Director of Global Marketing & Innovation at Signode Industrial Group. “These solutions are a small example of our commitment to delivering truly customer-focused innovations that meet current and future demands.”

Among those innovations on display will be the Octopus™ Compact 20 TSI automatic rotary ring stretch wrapper. Competitively priced to automatic rotary arm and turntable machines in the 30-50 LPH range, the wrapper is versatile for a variety of applications and environments. With its compact size and intuitive operation, the Octopus Compact 20 TSI is ideal for manufacturers looking to increase productivity without compromising space or budgets.  The modular design of the machine further allows for numerous innovative options to solve nearly any pallet unitizing challenge. 

Attendees will also be introduced to the recently released Signode BXT3 series. The next generation of battery-powered combination tools for plastic strapping is designed to help enhance safety, convenience, and ease of use. The tool’s variable tension speed gives the operator complete control of the speed applied to the strap. The series features a real-time indication of tension force that increases the reliability of the process and reduces operating errors.

In addition to offering solutions for pallet unitizing and bundling, visitors to the booth can also learn more about the Storfast product portfolio. Consisting of high-density automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), the products provide superior cost and performance advantages over other traditional automation systems. The modular, scalable AS/RS system can also be expanded as capacity requirements change- doubling building capacity for some clients.

“Regardless of their end-of-line packaging needs, we encourage all attendees to stop by to learn about these and many of our other solutions, not on display,” says Stein. “Whether looking to pack, bundle, unitize, warehouse or transport packaged products, Signode prides itself on being a true one-stop-shop with expertise and proven product solutions to match.”

Signode Industrial Group has a long history of customer-focused innovations in materials, processes and automation technology that have revolutionized the load containment and transit packaging industries.
