The launch of the fully automated EVOLUTION SoniXs TRC-6 strapping machine marks another step by Mosca GmbH towards increasing standardisation across the machine ranges. Specially developed to meet the needs of the corrugated cardboard industry, the new machine straps large-format products for secure transportation. The Standard-6 strap path system can be easily disassembled without tools and all core components can be easily accessed for maintenance and cleaning. Combined with Mosca’s SoniXs ultrasonic technology, this leads to extremely reliable, high-quality strapping results.
The new model was launched at SinoCorrugated 2014 in China, the world’s leading trade show for the corrugated cardboard industry. The EVOLUTION SoniXs TRC-6 has been available since the beginning of 2015.
More than 5,000 machines have been sold since the precursor of the EVOLUTION SoniXs TRC-6 was launched in 1987 and the demand today remains unabated. Christian Zwieb, responsible for product management at Mosca GmbH explains: “The market is extremely practical when it comes to strapping corrugated cardboard products. These machines are extremely easy to operate and offer minimal downtime.” The fully-automated strapping machine from Mosca delivers up to 28 strapped packages per minute on a standard-size frame with a passage width of 1,650mm and up to 25 packages per minute on the largest passage width of 2,600mm.
A new feature on the EVOLUTION SoniXs TRC-6 is the unitised Standard-6 strap path, which can be disassembled without tools and just as easily reassembled in a few easy steps. This simplifies maintenance, cleaning and repairs. The removable roller-table makes it easy to access the inner workings of the machine. If required, the table can be unlocked and completely detached for direct access to all core components from above.
The EVOLUTION SoniXs TRC-6 operates cost-effectively and straps the packages on the conveyor transversely to the direction of transport. The pneumatic hold down device is integrated into the frame, enhancing the machine’s compact un-cluttered design. It can be manually fixed at a specific height before the start of the strapping cycle to ensure maximum performance regardless of package height. Safe to operate without separate protection, the machine comes labelled with a CE marking from the factory.
The EVOLUTION SoniXs TRC-6 uses the unique Mosca-patented SoniXs ultrasonic sealing units which require no warm-up time and are extremely energy efficient: energy is only consumed at the moment the strap ends are sealed. The welded seam offers more than 80 percent of the tensile strength of the strap, making it exceptionally strong and stable.
An optional double strap dispenser reduces downtime. Instead of a single strap coil, the EVOLUTION SoniXs TRC-6 works with two coils. As soon as one coil is empty, a second feeding unit in the machine automatically takes up the second coil. The empty coil can be changed while the machine is in operation, avoiding costly down time.
Additionally, customers can opt to have a package stop integrated to align the package on the conveyor. This ensures the strapping is perfectly positioned on the corrugated blank and simplifies downstream processing for accurate, fully automated palletising. MSCB-1 controls make machine operation easy via buttons and digital display. Operators are ready to use the machine after a brief introduction to the basic requirements.
