Randy Wright, VP Sales Corrugated Industry, reports, “Our focus in the Corrugated Industry for 2019 will be to continue to advance the performance of our bundling and unitizing systems, along with improved predictive maintenance programs to ensure maximum uptime. In addition, we now include optional remote support for the majority of our bundling solutions.”

“Our TRC6-SQ4 squaring bundler has emerged as the preferred bundling solution in most plants. Built on our TRC-6 bundler, over the past several years we have refined the “SQ” so that it is able to square and strap even the most difficult bundles coming off today’s high speed flexos. We have recently introduced numerous intelligent features, including a small bundle option that can handle bundles down to 7” x 7”. An optional automatic lateral positioning system measures the length and width of the incoming bundle, then directs the SQ to move left or right as needed to find the new center. The backstops and side conditioners automatically move into the proper position for efficient squaring. Many customers will also select the dual coil option, or even the auto coil change option when zero downtime is a priority.

“The popular SQ4A tandem arrangement, which uses a new advanced pacing and control system, has proven to be an ideal choice where maximum uptime and increased speed are needed. The tandem arrangement can increase throughput speeds by as much as 50%. It is also designed to allow for easy substitution should one bundler need to be removed for maintenance.

“Mosca’s ultrasonic Sonixs sealing heads have revolutionized strapping systems offering advantages over traditional heat seal technologies. Our standard TRC-6 bundler has remained the preferred bundler where squaring is not needed. Like all Mosca bundlers, it is available in Sonixs or heat seal. It is available in a variety of sizes, with arches wide enough to strap combo bins if needed. The TRC-6-Sonixs is currently being used behind wax cascaders.

“We recently introduced the redesigned S-ATRS-6 operator assisted squaring bundler for specialty folder-gluers, and now also offer the new UCB for the products with higher end graphics that require very careful handling. Our MCB-2 and UATRI-2-XT in-line squaring bundlers produce great looking bundles with strapping applied in the bundle flow direction for use behind flexos.

“Our high-speed CTR, CTE and CTX unitizers with Sonixs strapping heads offer proven compression strapping with electric or hydraulic drives to suit customer preference. The Sonixs heads have proven to be highly reliable, requiring very little attention, and seldom need to be removed from the platen for maintenance or a head swap. Customers are able to reduce costs through both improved performance and higher speed, and by moving to lighter, lower cost strap. MoscaTrak, our optional real-time data collection and diagnostics system, is a convenient, affordable way for users to track system performance, and it now includes a larger screen for easier viewing. We also now offer a portable strap splicing device to expedite coil changes.

“In addition, we continue to expand our field technical workforce, and offer new service agreement options in response to customer requests for increased support.”
