. Versatile, fully automated strapping machine now available in basic and
. high-performance versions
. Numerous options for maximum flexibility
Featuring a control concept that is unique in the strapping industry, the Mosca SoniXs TR is now available in both entry-level and high-end versions. The strapping specialists from Waldbrunn, Germany, will be supplying the flagship of fully automated strapping machines in Base and Pro models. Thanks to the Mosca modular concept based on a Standard-6 strap path system, the two versions share many of the same components. In combination with SoniXs ultrasonic technology, they ensure reliable, high-quality strapping results. The high-performance Pro model is available with an optional HMI touch panel. Thanks to an intelligent control concept the machine increases productivity and is ready to meet the future needs of Industry 4.0. The cost-efficient Base model offers simpler machine control and standardized options for entry-level customers.
Cost-effective high-end strapping machines are anything but a pipedream at Mosca. Modular design and an advanced shared component concept lower production costs – and Mosca passes these savings on to industry customers. While the entry-level machines feature outstanding Mosca quality, the company’s high-end units are ready to meet demanding Industry 4.0 challenges.
The frame, ultrasonic sealing unit, strap feeding unit and coil on the SoniXs TR-6 Base are identical to the components used in the Pro version. Both models feature the Standard-6 strap path system that is easy to maintain and enables convenient disassembly of strap path components without tools. The hold-down device of either models does not constitute a source of danger, so both machines come with a CE marking from the factory. SoniXs TR-6 Base and Pro models can be easily integrated into any production line. A Mosca standard for many years, the low-emission, energy-efficient SoniXs ultrasonic sealing process is unique in the industry. For industries ranging from wholesale to printing, logistics, food or pharmaceuticals, the SoniXs TR-6 Base and Pro models are extremely versatile and offer maximum availability in all applications.
First-class basic model
The SoniXs TR-6 Base uses an MSCB-1 control and can be easily operated via pushbutton panel with digital display. Pneumatic actuators ensure optimal, smooth strapping and two switch control boxes extend the range of the machine. An optimized chassis and cost-effective options including a pneumatic hold-down device or package stop make the SoniXs TR-6 Base a versatile solution for virtually all strapping applications. Additional options are available when the SoniXs TR-6 Base is combined with the SoniXs TRI-6 Base into a tandem machine capable of cross strapping stacked packages in the conveying direction.
Intuitive and easy to control
The SoniXs TR-6 Pro version features a specialized machine control system with operation via HMI touch panel. Operators can easily set various machine component parameters with the user-friendly Mosca software interface.
The software generates a detailed error display with troubleshooting support. Diagnostics are handled via online remote maintenance directly from Mosca headquarters in Waldbrunn, Germany. This is made possible by the machine’s network capability. If necessary, the unit can be controlled by a remote computer and is fully prepared for Industry 4.0 machine intercommunications. Device status can be clearly displayed at any time with a few mouse clicks. Even software updates are delivered via the Internet. This makes operation easier and more efficient.
The key to high-performance operation of the SoniXs TR-6 Pro is a versatile strapping editor that enables variable settings for each product on the line. Customers can define a wide range of strapping positions and save these parameters as formulas that include transport speed, strap tension and package dimensions. Strapping programs independently select these formulas according to predefined events that can be activated by external interfaces, sensor signals or QR codes. The TR-6 SoniXs Pro is available in four different frame sizes and straps up to 45 packages per minute with six different strap widths ranging from 5 to 12 millimeters.
