The NEW FL6200SW from Columbia Machine, Inc. combines high-speed stretch-wrap technology with a palletizer. As a fully integrated feature, the stretch wrapper includes a dual motor stretch carriage that can be programmed to allow varying pre-stretch levels at different places during the wrap cycle; for example lower stretch at the bottom of the load to protect the film from tearing on pallet corners.

Machine features a high-speed turntable and the ability to maintain the palletizing throughput while still providing a compact footprint. The FL6200SW is built with safety, flexibility and performance to ensure maximized production.

The FL6200SW can simultaneously stack and stretch wrap a variety of challenging package types including unwrapped trays, shrink pads, film-only bundles and more. The addition of an integrated stretch wrapper helps when load stability or space constraints are a challenge. With the incorporation of servo technology, high-speed turntable and high-speed stretch wrapper, speeds up to 100 cases/min are achieved.

The FL6200SW’s standard package includes Category 3, Performance Level D safety components and incorporates fully integrated guarding, full height light curtains, automatic four-point hoist pins, case infeed tunnel and interlocked load building area access doors. This safety package keeps employees safe while still being operationally “friendly” and meeting production demands by providing convenient and safe access when needed.

The machine utilizes an easy-to-operate Product Manager HMI, servo-actuated layer transfer and load building area hoists, servo-actuated bi-parting apron plates and modular construction that allow for multiple layout configurations to fit site constraints. Users can create and modify layer patterns, view and export production reports, adjust component speeds and timer settings, make stretch wrapper adjustments, and access manuals and schematics, all through the HMI. Graphic pattern screens can be created at the HMI to aid recovery and provide graphic representation of diagnostics, improving OEE.
