ABB Robotics have recognized the MultiWrapper as the winner of their Most Innovative Solution award. With the Multiwrapper a complex automation task (stretch-wrapping of coils, through the eye) was broken down into minor tasks, which could more easily be solved. Two robots work in unison for a fully automated wrapping process, including an automated exchange of the stretch-wrap rolls.
The MultiWrapper can wrap a coil in only 4 minutes and is targeted to high volume steel and aluminum coil producers that benefit from high throughput at the packaging station. It is the first solution of its kind.
