Tuesday, Sep 22, 2015

Orion Packaging, powered by Pro Mach, features at Pack Expo 2015 in Las Vegas, September 28-30, an upgraded control package for their Flex line of semi-automatic stretch wrapping systems. The upgraded control package features a larger, full color touch panel with a totally redesigned operator interface, remote monitoring, built-in diagnostics, and an onboard PLC with USB connectivity for easy software updates.

Navigation of menu items and operating parameters has been improved to make the user experience as intuitive as possible. Users can program wrapping “recipes” for certain pallet load types and sizes. The controller can also communicate production data wirelessly for management analysis. It can also transmit error data such as a film break or low stretch film to help operators achieve better efficiency. The 7” high resolution touch panel features IP65 protection for harsh industrial environments.

“This new control package makes our Flex line of stretch wrappers the most advanced in the market,” said Steve Holland, Orion Vice President of Marketing. “We designed the operating system from the ground up so the Flex wrappers will be as easy to use as a smart phone.”
