Overlap Shrinkwrappers BP ARX/ALX

Overlap Shrinkwrappers BP ARX/ALX


The series of BP shrinkwrappers, traditionally composed of models with sealing bar, starting from next month will be enriched with 4 new overlap models.

The overlap system offers the following advantages:

  • use of a single reel (instead of 2 used with the bar system);
  • joining of the edges of the film on the bottom of the pack (avoiding the welding on the side of the pack, typical of the system with bar);
  • possibility of print centering (optional);
  • increase of the output capacity.


Currently this range includes two models with 90° infeed conveyor, film only and film+pad (BP802ARX 280R and BP802ARX 280R-P) and two in-line models (BP802ALX 600R and BP802ALX 600R-P). Here below the features common to the a.m. shrinkwrappers.

  • Automatic pack collation
  • FLXMOD® control system equipped with:
    • operator interface with panel PC and 7” full-colour touch screen display
    • 32-bit microprocessor
    • inverter with encoder reading integrated
    • in/out command modules
  • Up to 20 different working cycles
  • Product presence photocells
  • Chain separator controlled by inverter and encoder
  • Reel holder support eqquiped with antistatic rollers
  • Motorized film unwinding controlled by inverter and potentiometer
  • Connecting belt with variable speed controlled by inverter and encoder
  • Double-chamber shrinking tunnel
  • Tunnel air flow adjustable by means of independent deflectors
  • Tunnel conveyor equipped with heat-resistant glass fibre bars (SMI patent) which ensures that:
    • the conveyor stiffness grants stability to the products passing through, for a compact and well-shrunk pack
    • the conveyor can bear a product weight up to 30 kg
    • the conveyor bars never get rusted, as it happens when using traditional metallic conveyors
    • the maintenance is easy and low-cost, thanks to the possibility of replacing just the worn out bars
  • Oven cooling system
  • Automatic, semiautomatic, pass through mode
  • Film handled: Ldpe from 25 to 80 My
  • Low power consumption
  • Compliance with CE regulations

Please contact our sales department for more information and offer requests.

We would also like to inform you that the first machines will be available starting from May 2015 and that, after the presentation of the model BP802ALX at the Anuga Food Exhibition in Cologne (Germany) last month, we will be glad to show the overlap model with 90° infeed conveyor during the next Ipackima Exhibition in Milan from 19th to 23rd of May 2015.

We hope that also these new models could find a positive response on the market.
