Wulftec SMLCA – 277 Automated Stretch Wrapper

General Details

The SMLCA-277 model, a heavy duty automatic wrapper with powered conveyors on the turntable and a gravity out-feed conveyor.

The SMLCA-277 allows the forklift operator to place the pallet, and start the cycle remotely so other tasks can be performed. Once the wrap cycle is complete the wrapper automatically feeds the pallet onto the out-feed conveyor leaving the process conveyor free for the next load to be delivered. This minimises forklift movements and increases your production rate with no extra labour.
