Atlanta teams up with robot integrator.

Atlanta Packaging has recently teamed up with a well known UK robot integrator to supply two pallet handling and stretch wrapping systems for one of their clients. The total scope of the project includes pallet conveyors, robot palletising units and pallet stretch wrapping.


Due to the layout of the palletising cell it was not possible to supply new, empty, pallets to the robot directly. Atlanta therefore included special software to allow stacks of new pallets to transit backwards into the cell for the robot to dispense individually. Atlanta were also able to offer the pallet wrapper painted in the same colours as the pallet conveyors too, making the whole installation look as well as operate as a complete unit.

The Mytho A automatic pallet stretch wrapper installed uses a unique screw jack principle to raise and lower the film carriage. Whilst not required on this particular application, the Mytho A pallet stretch wrapper range can be equipped with a top sheet applicator if required.

All machine parameters are adjustable including table rotation speed, bottom rounds, top rounds, speed up and speed down. The film carriage is equipped with power pre stretch film rollers to maximise the film yield per roll as well as increase load containment and improve the aesthetics of the wrapped load. To prevent unsightly film tails at the end of the cycle, the unit can be equipped with a film tail welding unit.

Atlanta is a fast growing, progressive company with many unique, patented designs for both stretch wrapping and shrink wrapping equipment.
