TAB Wrapper Tornado Option Extends Life of Cutting System

Reading, PA: A new Thermal Cutting System from orbital wrapper manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, Pa. (, automatically cuts the end of the stretch wrap after pallet wrapping. Offered as an option on the TAB Wrapper Tornado line of orbital wrapping machines, the new Thermal Cutting System features proprietary technology that draws a heated blade through the stretchwrap, cools it, and then hides it safely away behind protective machine guarding – all within five seconds. The novel device leaves the stretchwrap with a clean edge ready for wrapping the next pallet load while eliminating the potential formation of stray, plastic shards common to standard blades when ready for maintenance.

Extending the service life of the automated cutting device versus the standard design, the patent-pending Thermal Cutting System reduces blade wear for reduced machine downtime and longer operation before periodic replacement. The new concept is available pre-installed on new TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrappers and may be retrofit on automated wrapping machines in the field.

The patented orbital wrappers apply stretch wrap 360 degrees around and under the pallet and load to create a stable, unitized load that eliminates the need for boxes, crates, and banding. The stretch wrapping machines and Thermal Cutting System are designed and manufactured at the company’s Reading, Pa. headquarters and delivered with a full warranty.
