The second wrapping device could include an additional arm, rotatable with regards to a typically vertical axis and assisting another product packaging material dispenser moveable up and down down the secondly arm. As the second arm rotates about load 316, the second packaging material dispenser moves vertically along the arm to dispense packaging material about the sides of load 316.
The burden controller and transporter may be similar to these described with respect to Figs. , and 7.2 and 1
According to the present invention is shown in Figs a method for wrapping a load. , and 7.2 and 1 A load 16 is transported by a forklift 50 into a wrapping area B and is then transferred to a cantilevered load support surface 30 mounted in the wrapping area, the wrapping area B having a cantilevered packaging material dispenser 10 including a dispenser 12, a rotatable arm 20 having a free end 24 and supporting dispenser 12, and a dispenser support frame 18, as shown and according to a preferred embodiment of the present invention.
Once load 16 is positioned on cantilevered stress help work surface 30, a totally free stop 32 of cantilevered fill assist surface 30 is moved in a wrapping place, where by free of charge finish 32 of cantilevered load assist surface area 30 is positioned to ensure that it encounters typically toward dispenser support structure 18 and it is generally in-line together with the horizontal portion of rotatable left arm 20, while the cost-free stop 24 of rotatable arm 20 faces generally clear of dispenser assistance framework 18. Free of charge end 32 of cantilevered fill help area 30 is shifted in the wrapping position by rotation of turntable 40 where it is actually fitted.
A leading stop part of a page of packaging material 14 is linked to the stress, or maybe the fill support surface area, and engine powered “L-formed”
rotatable arm 20 begins to rotate dispenser 12 within a group of friends with regards to a horizontal axis 102 and about weight 16 on cantilevered weight help surface 30.
Dispenser 12 moves horizontally along rotatable arm 20 and dispenses packaging material 14 around the top, and as arm 20 passes below free end 32 of cantilevered load support surface 30, the bottom of load 16, as rotatable arm 20 rotates.
When packaging material 14 continues to be twisted around the best and bottom part of stress 16, the packaging material 14 is severed, and optionally might be smoothed onto stress 16 inside a typical way. If so desired, at this time, it is possible to wrap the sides of the load. Family member rotation is provided in regards to a generally vertical axis 108 in between load 16 along with a 2nd wrapping material dispenser 60 attached and vertically moveable on mast 66. Within the recommended embodiment, turntable 40 rotates about top to bottom axis 108 to turn stress 16 and wrap packaging material 62 regarding the aspects of fill 16. In a option, less recommended embodiment, dispenser 12 is controlled to prolong downwardly from rotatable left arm 20, and turntable 40 rotates to deliver relative rotation involving dispenser 12 and fill 16 to wrap wrapping material across the ends of your load. Additionally, it really is possible to carry out wrapping the sides in the fill right after the free of charge end 32 continues to be moved to the stress exchange placement.
