The minipack®-torre family grows, with a range of innovative sleeve wrappers, available in automatic and semi-automatic versions. The rich features in these machines is striking, they make the packaging machines extremely versatile, capable of fulfilling very different packaging requirements.
All the experience of the Gramegna brand
Gramegna was the first Italian company to construct angular packaging machines, in the 1960s, after purchasing an American patent. Thanks to the design of various manual and semi-automatic versions, it became a reference point for the production of packaging machines both in Italy and abroad, especially in France and Belgium.
In the wake of success - in 1970 - Gramegna designed the first sleeve wrapper and subsequent versions: manual, semi-automatic and automatic. Recently, minipack®-torre acquired the Gramegna brand to relaunch it and promote it internationally.
Automatic and semi-automatic sleeve wrapper: minipack®-torre branded efficiency
Whether you need a semi-automatic sleeve wrapper with a pedal-driven pusher, or your large company needs a fully automatic machine (i.e. equipped with a motorised belt before and after the sealing bar) to integrate into the production line, minipack®-torre offers you a professional solution.
The range of sleeve wrappers includes the MS semi-automatic and MS L and AL automatic versions. The latter can also be converted into semi-automatic: just by using the control selector integrated in each model.
They share a number of features:
- The option of packaging individual or multipack packs
- Main single-unit structure, suitable for small and medium-sized businesses
- Automatic wrapping system of the film reels with dragging rollers
- Heat shrinking tunnel with air recirculation system
Upon request, additional options may be installed: a signal that indicates the end of the reel, film insertion rollers that facilitate replacement, a reel centring system and an outfeed pack cooling unit. When frequent movements are required, wheels can be applied to the bottom of the machine.
The safety of a professional sleeve wrapper
A non-secondary feature for a professional sleeve wrapper is compliance with the safety standards. All minipack®-torre packaging machines are equipped with a special photocell, which blocks the movement of the sealing bar as soon as foreign body is detected on its trajectory.
For some models, a few optional extras can be integrated to enhance the safety level, for example:
- Side rails inside the tunnel for product protection
- Guides for pack containment after the sealing bar.
All the machines are compatible with Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.
