The TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrapping system from packaging machinery manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, PA enables one worker to automatically wrap metal parts in process in protective stretch-wrap in 60 seconds or less to prevent contamination due to dust and humidity during stops between secondary operations or in extended storage. Encasing loose, stacked and containerized work-in-process to the pallet, the TAB Wrapper Tornado keeps parts safely in place to prevent scratches and scuffs due to sliding against each other in transit to and from stamping, welding, tapping, powder coating, shipping and other departments, even to and from outside vendors.
Ideal for safeguarding plated, powder coated, and other finished parts often rendered off-spec by ordinary handling, the TAB Wrapper Tornado reduces the risk of rejection upon quality inspection or upon delivery while extending the length of time the work-in-process may be safely staged or stored. “After every process, we’ll put the parts in a box and wrap them because they might sit on a shelf for weeks before we take them to the secondary operation,” says Nick LaVigne, plant manager for Monti Inc., Greenwood, S.C. “With the TAB Wrapper Tornado, we reduce oxidation and cross-contamination and we’ve eliminated product damage during transport.”
The patent-pending TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrappers wrap plastic film 360 degrees around and under a pallet and its load to secure the load to the pallet and create a sturdy, unitized load without banding, boxing or strapping. The wrapping systems are designed and manufactured at the company’s Reading, Pa. headquarters and delivered with a warranty ready for installation.
