Mosca and Eurapack at Anuga FoodTec - Combined expertise for secure transport

(PresseBox) ( Waldbrunn, )
- Combination system: pallet banding and strapping for secure transport
- Waterproof: corrosion-free strapping with ultrasonic technology
- Inspiring: first-hand experience of a wide range of strapping variants

The strapping specialists at Gerd Mosca AG will have company at this year's Anuga FoodTec, international trade fair for the food and beverage industry, in Cologne from 27 to 30 March. In cooperation with Eurapack, one of the leading providers of professional solutions for secure pallets and transport, Mosca will be presenting a combination system for secure pallet transport in Hall 07.1, Stand A045. The machine bands pallets und straps the load in a single pass to make it secure for transport. The load can be strapped more than once if necessary. The label is applied as part of the band and so does not need to be glued to the transport load - an added bonus, particularly with reusable drinks crates or food packaging. Ultrasonic sealing in a wet environment will also be presented at the Mosca stand along with various exhibits demonstrating the diversity of modern strapping applications.

Mosca at Anuga FoodTec in Cologne will be showcasing the wide variety of strapping technology applications designed for tough conditions in the food industry. In particular, they will be presenting a combined strapping and labeling system in cooperation with Eurapack GmbH. The Achern-based company has 40 years of experience in securing packages and pallets for transport. Eurapack CEO Florian Spraul explains: "Our machine is fully automatic. It consists of a film banding unit at the lower part of the pallet, with a Mosca strapping frame in the upper part. The band is used as a substrate for the large label used for pallet traceability and simplifies the entire transport flow." All labels and markings required along the transport route are applied directly to the band and can be easily removed, without residue. Arriving products are clean - which eliminates extra work. This is a significant advantage with reusable containers, such as drinks or food crates. Mosca applies PP strapping using a heating wedge sealing unit to reliably secure the packaged goods for transport. Unlike conventional binding methods, this enables several strapping passes while a pallet is stopped for added load security. The automatic height adjustment of the strapping frame makes the combination system extremely flexible. Partial loads and loads of different heights can be reliably secured. The combination system is capable of strapping and labeling 150 pallets per hour. The compact design means that the machine can be used in areas with limited space.

Like a fish in water - reliable strapping with ultrasound

Along with the combination, the stand will feature Mosca SoniXs technology. Behind a perspex screen, the SoniXs ultrasonic sealing unit reliably and faultlessly welds strap ends in wet conditions. This technology is used by the SoniXs TRP-VA - an automatic strapping system that is ideal for the meat and fish processing industries. With no rust-prone cast iron or steel parts, the machine can be quickly and easily cleaned with a water jet. This is a key benefit in operations that require hygienic conditions. The SoniXs TRP-VA is entirely corrosion-free - a unique feature in the strapping industry.

Strapping: unbeatably universal

Anyone interested in new applications for strapping technology will find what they are looking for at the Mosca trade show stand. A wide range of strapped units demonstrate how solid straps can be used on products that perhaps were never before considered. "The products on display show customers the many different possibilities with strapping," says Mosca CEO Timo Mosca. "Unlike wrapping entire pallets in plastic, securing loads for transport with straps requires far less material - and eliminates bulky outer packaging. Along with the printing industry and other distribution-intensive enterprises, companies in the food sector can benefit from simple, secure and reliable strapping of products for transport."
