EAM-Mosca Adds Movitec Stretch Wrapper to Complete Its Line of Corrugated Solutions

Well known for highly successful bundling and unitizing strapping systems, EAM-Mosca introduces the addition of Movitec rotary ring stretch wrappers to its competitive portfolio for the Americas. As a Mosca company since 2021, Movitec is recognized for its outstanding stretch wrapping systems, providing unparalleled protection and stability for palletized and unpalletized loads with throughput capabilities of up to 160 loads per hour.

By combining systems, customers can expect to benefit from maximized product security, reinforced protection, efficient load containment, and increased damage prevention.

Strapping System portfolio

EAM-Mosca’s latest squaring bundler, the MAX-Q, reinvents the conventional Tandem System for squaring and strapping bundles by combining proven technologies with new designs and product handling.

The Max-Q, which is designed to be used behind a box slitter, integrates two strappers whose position can be varied inside a fixed-length chassis to align with the strap-to-strap distance of adjoining bundles. This unique design allows it to strap two bundles simultaneously without separating the bundle after slitting. By simultaneously strapping, the MAX-Q increases bundle throughputs by 50% from 32 per minute in the current SQ4A Tandem System to 48 per minute. In addition, the MAX-Q features an innovative, patent-pending variable-length roller conveyor that enables a 48% reduction in line space compared with the SQ4A Tandem System, from 160.8 inches to only 83.6 inches. The space-saving shorter footprint simplifies the high-speed conveying of unstable small box bundles that complicate conventional bundling systems. EAM-Mosca’s next generation of bundling systems enables boxmakers to take advantage of faster flexos and bundle splitters in response to increased demand for small boxes.

The five-headed CTV-SoniXs® is an all-electric unitizer designed to allow high throughput when strapping units requiring closer strap spacing, a higher number of straps per unit, or more units per hour. The CTV combines the speed, reliability, and longevity of prior EAM-Mosca SoniXs® unitizers with a narrower version of the SoniXs® strapping head that allows strap spacings as close as 9 inches with up to five heads per unitizer. Heads and tracks may be placed at spacings of 9, 9, 23.5, and 15 inches. Three straps can be applied in a single hit within 18 inches, and up to five straps can be spaced as wide as 56 inches.

The benefit is a higher percentage of single-hit units, enabling the system to approach peak production levels for a broader range of unit load variation and strapping requirements. Importantly, the narrow version of the SoniXs® sealing head is a reconfiguration of the previous SoniXs® unitizer head that has been the key component for the Mosca Unitizer program for well over a decade. Thus, the narrower version provides customers with all the performance and reliability of the current SoniXs® unitizer head while accommodating the required strap patterns of small loads with a single platen hit.

These latest offerings will allow corrugated customers to future-proof their production and offer one-stop shopping for end-of-line packaging solutions. Given the increase in e-commerce shipments and related small box demand, EAM-Mosca has a proven solution to fill the need for faster throughput to maintain bundle or unit load integrity. EAM-Mosca constantly strives to be forward-thinking with the goal of helping customers be prepared to handle current packaging trends and to be ready for upcoming changes that might occur six months or six years down the road.
