Built-in diagnostics expedites productivity
Modular technology reduces maintenance time and requirements
Multiple machine sizes and options for a wide range of glass bottle packaging needs
Equalized tension from top and bottom optimizes load stability
MH-BGU Glass Bottle Unitizer
The MH-BGU applies consistent, retained strap tension to the package providing load integrity and stability during normal shipping and handling; from warehousing to transit and arrival at the destination. Capable of handling multiple load sizes, its modular design coupled with innovative options make it ideal for a wide range of glass bottle packaging applications, including those that have changing packaging needs.
Features and Benefits
- Simplifies operation
Constructed with a modular design, the MH-BGU facilitates easier operation and maintenance to maximize productivity. Constructed with fewer moving parts and more durable wear parts than traditional strap heads, the MH-BGU’s separate, lightweight tensioning and sealing modules are easy to access and remove for maintenance.
- Load stability
Unlike other systems, the MH-BGU equalizes strap tension from the top and bottom of the load to provide retained strap tension that stays consistent throughout the strapping cycle.
- Streamlines troubleshooting
The MH-BGU features built-in diagnostics to simplify troubleshooting and minimize downtime. The human-machine interface (HMI) recognizes and identifies faults or errors to enable immediate correction.
