NEW STRAPPING SYSTEM
Our distributor, Gordian Strapping, has supplied a new vertical plastic strapping machine and slat conveyor to Wienerberger at their plant in Ewhurst.
Wienerberger is the world’s largest producer of bricks, and the No. 1 producer of clay roof tiles in Europe, with 229 plants in 27 countries.
The Ewhurst factory required a new strapping machine to replace an ageing system that had reached the end of its working life. The site also needed a new slat conveyor underneath the stretch hooding machine to replace the previous conveyor that had not proven to be robust enough for the demanding environment of a clay brick factory.
Gordian installed an OMS TS300 vertical strapping machine, equipped with the latest generation TR2000 strapping head, along with a test rig and a spare strapping head. The spare head can be introduced into the line in the event of a breakdown, or to allow production to continue while another head is serviced off-line on the test rig.
The OMS TR2000 Head, which can apply a max. tension of 7000N (700kg) is designed for use with Polyester Strapping (PET) and is proven through- out the building products industry. It features quick-change modular parts that can be swapped out within 5 minutes in the event of a fault, there- by minimizing downtime. Heat Seal technology means that the head can be quickly adjusted to suit different strap specifications, and a major service is only required every 200,000 cycles. The strapping machine is equipped with an OMS PBTR Turntable Jumbo Strap Dispenser holding 7 coils of strap. With 4,500m of strap on each coil, rather than 1,500m on a standard coil of strap, downtime due to coil changes is kept to a minimum.
Gordian is as an existing supplier to Wienerberger with a proven track record of installing and maintaining strapping and stretch hooding equipment. With 16 highly trained service engineers based across the UK, Gordian is well placed to offer after sales service and support.

A very small space available to install three strapping machines
This model of strapping machine has been purchased by an important multinational corporation of the United States.
Their first necessity was to have an implant made of two lines that could manage a very high productive performance per hour.
For this Company it was also very important to stick to all the security restrictions they had in their plant and to manage in the best way possible the limited space of the site of installation of such a complex implant.
OMS supplied an impant made of:
Three strapping machines model 082 that had two mobile strapping heads TR14HD equipped with a special device that allows to insert corner perimetral protections.
This configuration grants the maximum flexibility and productive capacity in function of the type of the product that needs to be packed.
Perimetral systems, devices and muting photocells to manage the security of the whole implant.
Centering and rotation device, transport of the pallets designed in particular according to the space available.
AVR900 + ADV system
AVR900 is an automatic rotating ring wrapping machine.
Is it suitable for all applications where high production rates are required especially in the beverage sector so it can be easily inserted into packaging lines.
The rotating ring designed without sliding electrical contacts guarantees: less maintenance, reduced electrical consumption, drastic reduction of overheating and risks of electric shock consequently a greater overall safety of the machine.
This model can be equipped with one or two pre-stretch reels of film and allows the wrapping cycle to be started and stopped at any palletized load height. Rotation takes place by means of a high-strength belt whose speed is adjustable directly from the operator panel.
At the end of cycle the film is not heat-sealed (thus avoiding emission of harmful fumes) but through a system patented by “OMS” where the queue of film is positioned under the previous wrap to ensure a perfect finish.
Another system developed and patented is the pre-stretching carriage: it guarantees a stretching ratio of film up to 300%, without the use of additional motor or electrical contacts.
This results in greater reliability of packaging, load stability, reduced film consumption and maintenance.
AVR900 can be equipped with top-sheet device which allows the wrap of pallet dust or water proof ensuring a complete packaging on five sides.
OMS has also developed a fundamental and useful accessory for all companies wishing to put their brand on the packaged product; this option is integrated into a special reel holder unit where roll of advertising band is positioned. Results a saving of time for the application and protection of its own brand within the same packaging.
The advertising band can be applied at any point of the packaging thanks to a special ring vertical reading system, programmable according to required height.
The core of the palletless system of OMS is the SEW-Eurodrive technology, a German multinational, one of the world leaders in industrial automation. Many of the components installed in the WHO machines are supplied by the company born in northern Germany more than eighty-five years ago.
This technology is for example present in the palletless lines of OMS. These are modular and adaptable packaging plants, capable of producing stable packaging without the support of the wooden pallet without doubt one the major cost of the packing.
The constant partnership that unites OMS and SEW offers the possibility to develop end-of-line packaging solutions that are extremely effective and innovative thanks to the adoption of cutting-edge components. The SEW parts used have a key role both in the packaging phase and in the handling phase, guaranteeing high productivity cycles.
Regarding the first phase, the line uses DRL asynchronous servo geared motors controlled by MOVIDRIVE technology that allow to contain typologies and costs while guaranteeing performances similar to those of servo motors.
Instead, movement is carried out by means of motorized roller conveyors and involves the use of gear motor with decentralized MOVIMOT technology, which make it possible to drastically reduce the start-up and wiring times and the size reduction of the electrical panels.
The communication of the pallet line less OMS is managed using an Ethernet bus directly integrated on the components used; this allows a rapid data transmission, a simplified wiring and a the possibility to analyze the operating data remotely.
The reliability and the experience of SEW components, expressly requested for palletsless plants always operating in extreme conditions (high temperatures, highly dusty, humidity and relative condensation cause high temperature changes), have played a decisive role in the selection as supplier of OMS, thanks to ad hoc application packages, especially in the application field of packaging.
6,30 meters, the higher OMS machine ever made
Our distributor Gordian Strapping has provided a stretch hooder for Sheffield based timber merchants and animal bedding suppliers McClure Timber Supplies t/a Greenwood Forest Products. Standing 6300mm from the floor, it is the tallest OMS manufactured stretch hooding machine in the UK.
McClure required a stretch hooder for baled sawdust and baled wood shavings for cattle, horses and other livestock to improve presentation and pack security in transit and also to enable pallets to be stored outside without risk of water ingress. With space at a premium, a high level of engineering knowledge and ingenuity were required to find a solution that met the clients’ need with a minimum of fuss and down-time.
Gordian Strapping installed an OMS manufactured IS43 stretch hooder off the conveyor centre line because of space restrictions and incorporated a specially designed shuttle conveyor to enable the packages to be positioned correctly for hooding.
The benefits were many:
greater pack security with the product now secured firmly to the pallet,
no sideways movement in transport,
the ability to hood packs in line straight after the baler,
Improved visible pack presentation and ultimately less returns and less damage as the pack remains in exactly the same condition it leaves McClure’s. McClure’s Owner and Managing Director, Richard McClure feels the solution has been a real boon to his company.
OMS stretch hooding IS46
The OMS stretch hooding IS46 is an authomatic machine which can be part of an authomatized production line, it performs the packaging of the goods through bags of extensible film.
These bags can be made of different materials and they have different compositions, their main function is to protect the goods during the transport and the storage and also granting that the packaging will be stable and waterproof.
Through the use of coils of extensible tubular film it is possible to hood packs of different shapes and mesures.
During the design of the machine the main movements of the hooding cycle have been divided in 3 different phases; this choice led to the achievement of high production performances (up to 250 packs/h), always granting high quality aesthetic of the packed product.
Thank to the innovative coil-holder system it is possible to manage up to three coils at the same time, the three coils are installed at the level of the ground to enable the operator to substitute them without any downtime.
This system is designed to enable the operator to have easy access to the main parts of the machine during the maintenance and this guarantees a great saving of time which is one of the many qualities of this model of hooder.
This machine is actually one of the most performing machines of its cathegory that you can currently find on the market.
Performance: high productivity (up yo 250 packs/h)
Timing: no downtimes and no wasting time to change the coil
Eco-friendly: energy saving, because the film doesn’t need to be heated
Stability: the packaging with the stretch film is safer and more resistant, it also grants an high stability during the transport
Protection: the hood protects the goods from water, dust and bad weather conditions
Environment: less pollution tank to the less use of film
