Mosca introduces high-performance sealing unit for 19 mm straps
From bulky wooden planks, to heavy paving stones and large sheets of steel – the timber and construction industries place high demands on transport securing systems. Mosca's new high-performance sealing unit meets these needs with up to 7000 newtons of tensile force. "Heavy and bulky products require wider straps for secure transport," explains Mosca CEO Timo Mosca. "Straps with a width of 19 mm reliably secure even the heaviest products. The new Mosca high performance sealing unit enables customers to use wider straps in standard Mosca pallet strapping systems". This high-performance sealer handles strapping with a width of 19 mm and a thickness of up to 1.27 mm – and thus complements the range of high-end sealing units designed for 12 or 15 mm straps. Companies using Mosca pallet strapping machines can now their sealing unit and strapping material based on their heaviest products. They can also save energy by using different sealing unit variants on multiple lines. The control software makes it easy to adapt the machine when customers require less than the maximum strap tension.
Optional for all Mosca pallet strapping systems: The new sealing unit is currently installed in the Mosca KOV-111-16, KOV-315 and MK-50 – a machine that was primarily used in the ceramics industry and is now suitable for applications across the entire construction sector. Andreas Ding, product management team leader at Mosca, explains: "The high-performance sealing unit can be installed in virtually all of our vertical and horizontal pallet strapping systems. If customers have a different high-performance strapping unit in their system, we can easily upgrade their machines."
Safe and reliable strapping: The sealing unit operates with low-noise friction welding. An extremely safe strapping process is a key advantage of the high-performance aggregate when it comes to strapping heavy and bulky products. The strength of the seal is up to 80% of the tensile force of the strap used. A strapping control switch checks to ensure the strapping was successful before the product is discharged from the machine. This way, users can rely on perfect strapping, especially in fully automated processes. The strap protrudes slightly beyond the seal in the running direction to secure the full length of the seal.
Easy maintenance and space-saving storage of spare parts: The modular, open design of the sealing unit is a real advantage if parts need to be serviced or replaced. Components can be quickly and easily removed without tools, saving time for operators and maintenance technicians. Another advantage is that many of the same components are used in Mosca's 12 mm, 15 mm and 19 mm high performance sealing units. Customers who have several machines in operation need to stock significantly fewer spare parts.
