Ideal wrapper for high-speed wrapping of metric sizes
For wrapping of all metric ream sizes ranging from Japanese B5 to GTO (364mm x 520mm), at up to 120 reams per minute, the Model 33 from WillPemcoBielomatik is your best choice. Wrap materials include Kraft, laminate and polypropylene film.

Precise and efficient ream wrapping
Reams are fed into the wrapper via a servo-driven, smart and flightless conveyor that also accepts and corrects for variance in ream spacing. During wrapping, a fixed ream stop maintains the consistent paper position and a sheet holder ensures precise wrap placement. The result: accurate, reliable wrapping quality for each ream.

Optional semi-automatic size change

Handwheels with position indicators facilitate easy size changes in 30 minutes or less. The optional semi-automatic size change allows for a reduced changeover time of 10 minutes or less - including programmable set-up recipes wrap capabilities for repeatability.

Operator interface with touch screen
A touch screen simplifies machine operation and diagnostics. Its display screen diagrams the machine layout to aid operator control and guides the operators with a registration instruction sequence when running re-gistered wrap. Programmable recipes for semi-automatic size change are available for shorten changeover times.

Servo driven machine for reliable performance

The Model 33 ream wrapper is a 15 axis servo driven machine, ensuring reliable performance and less maintenance. It is available with Allen-Bradley or Siemens servo drives and control. All machine controls and functions are incorperated in a single unit.

Accessible machine with a compact footprint
Its accessible design facilitates easy maintenance. Opening the feed nip section, for instance, allows easy access for jam removals, thus minimizes downtimes. And with the electrical enclosure mounted in machine, the wrapper remains compact in its footprint.
