Modern Strapping Machines at LogiMAT With Mosca

10th December 2018

Thanks to open interfaces and proprietary software, modern strapping machines can be integrated in larger production lines and controlled centrally. Mosca GmbH is showcasing compact systems with high-performance machines and in-house conveyor technologies at LogiMAT 2019 (19-21 February 2019). Three modular machines will be on display at Stand A37 in Hall 4: The EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6, the EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV (above) and the EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6-H.

Mosca follows a modular principle in the development of strapping machines. Many of their machines are assembled from basic components, such as sealing units and motors, and supplemented by individual components including strap frames, enclosures or conveyor mechanisms to meet the needs of specific applications. This concept is exemplified by the EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 and EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV. These two fully-automated machines feature the EVOLUTION Standard-6 strap path with SoniXs ultrasonic sealing unit. The high-performance sealing unit makes the strapping machines ideal for high-volume throughput. The side position of the sealing unit also keeps it free from product debris. The Standard-6 strap path also adds real value when it comes to maintenance: technicians can easily remove strap path components and replace them with standard spare parts.

Specially designed for pallets and dollies
Mosca designed the EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV – the newest member of the EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 series – for dollies and smaller and lighter pallets. Compared to larger machines, this model features reduced strap tension at a lower price. This means that the machine does not require an enclosure and there is no need for the operator to go outside a safety zone prior to strapping. This speeds up production processes. The machine has a flap frame that can be flexibly adjusted in 200mm increments for the most common product sizes. Thanks to its movable strap lance, the EVOLUTION SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV is ideal for low products. The lance slides into narrow spaces below the product, e.g. between the wooden slats of a pallet. This model is also available with a tub as an alternative to the movable strap lance.
