The Krones Wrapapac wraparound machine has an output of up to 80 cycles a minute. To ensure enhanced operational dependability, the redesigned Wrapapac WT dispenses with what in most cases used to be mechanically synchronised drive units. Where one central motor used to transmit the power via chains and gearwheels, decentralised servomotors are now being used. Service and operator sides have also been kept rigorously separate. There are no more drives at all on the operator's side. A higher construction for the machine frame improves access for the operator. Design enhancements render the changeover process from one pack to another more reliable, faster and accurately reproducible.
