An almost essential requirement is to place corner protectors on units to prevent damage to areas that are more prone to being knocked (97% on corners). For this task, we have two systems that facilitate this process significantly.
The most convenient is a lifting table for the unit to place the corner protectors on before the wrapping line. That way, the operative lifts the unit without any effort, no matter how heavy it is, and is able to place the corner protectors on all of the sides quickly and ergonomically. This system can be implemented on the input table of the wrapping machine, but it interferes with the work process so, whilst the corner protectors are positioned, the line is not able to wrap the unit. Therefore, it is always better to install the system on a separate table placed at the entrance, and just before the input table for the wrapping machine, whether it is an ERL or COOLPACK machine.
The other option mentioned which is also effective and simpler is the placing of a sheet under the conveyor belt of the input table which has a “mountain” effect, enabling the corner protectors to be placed, but with the disadvantage mentioned in the previous option, so it would not be suitable if a certain output was required.
