The film carriage is generally considered to be the most important component of a stretch wrapper.
Orion recognized the importance of the carriage in the industry-leading design of the S-Carriage. The S-Carriage’s well thought out design significantly improves upon existing specialty carriage designs, maximizing film yield, load containment, and throughput.
At the heart of the design are two pre-stretch rollers. Film travels in an S pattern around the rollers, providing over 180° of film contact to reduce slippage and neckdown*. The result is a consistent pre-stretch of 260% at different tensions and 1” less neckdown. In other words, achieving this consistent level of pre-stretch means the customer can wrap faster while receiving better film yield; it reduces film acquisition costs for shippers and improves end-user sustainability through less waste.
The S-Carriage provides consistency and a unified experience for customers as it works across Orion’s entire stretch wrapping product line. On average, the S-Carriage enables customers to increase their loads per roll of film from 135 to 154, equals a monthly savings of about $100*. The S-Carriage allows customers to wrap faster, while reducing film and saving money.
To calculate how much you could be saving with the S-Carriage contact Orion at Orion@promachbuilt.com. We can provide a complete calculation based on your load size, wrap pattern, throughput and film type and cost.
*Example is based on a 20” roll of film at $60 per roll and production throughput of 100 loads per day, operating 21 work days per month.
