Strapping machines Contistrap customised
Contimeta offers customized machinery for specific strapping applications . Many configurations are possible. A basic machine model is used where the clients specific application can be implemented on a modular basis. With all fully automatic machine models for pallets and bundels the strapping head forms the heart of the machine. The head guides the strap (PP, PET or steel) through the channel, picks up the end of the strap, takes care of tightening and re-tightening and finally, ensures the seal or closure of the strap so that this remains around the package or pallets with the correct tension.
As indicated, the basic machine is modified for the application. The correct strapping head is fitted within the frame, depending on the material and the required tensile strength of the head. The splicing heads and machine frames for these machines are supplied to Contimeta by partners with which an excellent collaboration has been conducted for numerous years. Combining the experiences of the strapping head and machine supplier in combination with Contimetas experience and specialism, result in a extremely high-quality product and thus guarantees the very best solution for our clients.
This vertical strapping machine fitted with side closures was designed to offer a correct balance between simplicity and reliability in a high speed production environment. The machine was built to be integrated into a roller conveyor, chain conveyor or strap transporter. The simple construction makes it possible to easily place the frame between existing transport conveyors. The machine is equipped with a fixed strapping head, whereby the products have to be transported adjusted along this head. Product detection, number of strapping, strapping positions etc. are easy to program. Contistrap 060 is suitable for both PP and PET plastic strapping.
This models works with a fixed lance and therefore not only straps between the pallet but also below the pallet or the load.
The Contistrap 600 is a vertical strapping machine, just like the Contistrap 060, fitted with a side splicing head; however, this machine is also suitable for strapping heavier products. The side splicing head is pneumatically moved to the product to be strapped (standard with a stroke of 400 mm). Thus it is not necessary for the products to be pushed against the head, but the products are able to remain in their position on the conveyor belt. The strapping head is also fitted with the "floating head" system, the upwards movement of the head during the retensioning, allowing the strap tension to be spread evenly over all sides of the strapped product. Contistrap 600 is suitable for both PP and PET plastic strap or it can be used with steel strips.
This model also works with a fixed lance and does not strap between the pallet but underneath the pallet or the load.
The Contistrap 600L is also a side closing machine, however especially for strapping pallets. As soon as the pallet has reached the correct strapping position, a lance shoots between the pallet coils, closing the strapping channel. The strapping strip is then lashed around and the strapping is carried out. As with the Contistrap 600, the head moves towards the pallet (standard with a stroke of 400 mm). A Contistrap LP model is also available, fitted with a light press, for the canning industry. Contistrap 600L is suitable for both PP and PET plastic strap.
The Contistrap 700 top closing machine is the ideal solution if an integrated press is necessary in case of highly variable package or pallet heights, low stacking height or products, or when work is carried out in a very dirty environment. As soon as the product is positioned, the overlying splicer head drops on to the product to start the feeding, tightening and splicing cycle. Depending on the required capacity, the strapping channel can be carried out so that the splicer head does not always have to be moved back to lash the strap around for another cycle. Like the Contistrap 700L, it can be fitted with 1 or 2 lances to strap between pallets or coils. Contistrap 700 is suitable for both PP and PET plastic strap, or can be used with steel strips.
The Contistrap 600L and 700L strapping machines move in the transport direction, whereby the entire machine can be moved to and from on rails parallel to the product conveyor belt. This is intended specially for situations where multiple straps need to be lashed in a limited time frame, or to create a double cross strapping in 1 strapping position (in that case the machine is configured on a turntable). Also extremely suitable for strapping non-stable products or packages containing bricks.
This machine is intended for strapping large round products, for instance, paper rolls or steel rolls. After the strap is inserted, the head moves to the product to be strapped. If required, it can also be fitted with a lance. Contistrap 800 is suitable for both PP and PET plastic strap, or can be used with steel strips.
This horizontal strapping machine is developed and manufactured to comply with the highest standards. A thorough and sturdy channel ensures the optimal reliability of the machine. Simple to install and maintain. Robust construction. Suitable for strapping pallet loads ranging from sandstone, bottles, barrels, cans, crates, or blocks, all loads are strapped securely. Because of the modular construction method, many designs of this machine are possible, dispenser, railing and control box mounted to the machine frame or separate. During tightening and splicing of the pallet load or the product, the strapping head moves towards the product (standard 300 mm, optional 600 mm. Also fitted with "floating head", the entire strapping head is moved horizontally along the product during the tightening of the strap to keep the strap tension equal around the package. The standard operating program is equipped with 10 programeble positions, simple to programme according to the "teach-in" principle. The Contistrap 900 is suitable voor both PP and PET plastic strap or can be used with steel straps.
The Contistrap 900 is standardly fitted with a strap guide.
Optionally, the machine can be fitted with:
Contistrap 900 3P: fitted with 3 presses, for the 2 sides and 1 in the front of the load, pressure 500 kg, and a strap guide.
Contistrap 900 G: with centring unit
Contistrap 900 P: 1 front press with a pressure of 200 kg, and a strap guide.
