Cullen Packaging Installs Mosca Automatic in-Line Strapping Machine at UK Facility

UK based conceptual design and packaging manufacturer Cullen Packaging has installed Mosca strapping technology at its facility in Glasgow.

As part of an automated production line, the firm has installed a Mosca-developed MCB-2 in-line squarer-bundler to strap bundles of finished boxes upon manufacture in a casemaker.

Designed for corrugated board applications, the MCB-2 comprises an integrated squaring system to enable users to align stacks before strapping them.

The machine features fully automatic in-line strapping technology designed to ensure fast, automated setup and job change. It will also provide high process reliability at up to 27 inline bundles per minute.

Additionally, the latest brushless DC technology of the machine allows it to offer smooth transfer of each bundle with low maintenance.

Cullen production manager Chris Adam said: "The automatic strapping process is faster than manual strapping and this means we can run our casemaker faster achieving higher throughput.

The strapping machine complement the Cullen's two existing Mosca machines purchased earlier.

Adam added: "Mosca machines are very good - reliable, efficient and easy to operate, all essential criteria to ensure we can continue to deliver the high standards for which we are renowned."

Mosca strapping machines are designed for securing pallets, packages, totes and cardboard packaging for transportation.

Recently, Mosca said it will showcase its fully automated strapping machines including the UATRI-2 XT and SoniXs TR-6 Base and Pro at the Drupa 2016 scheduled to be held in Germany.
