American Wrapper Series Retrofit Package for the OSSID 500E Overwrap and Shrink Tunnel

Houston Industries offers the American Wrapper Series to case-ready plants that desire a tray pack machine that will provide an end sealed leak resistant package. The retrofit foundation is based on a mechanical rebuild and control system retrofit of the 500E Wrapper and 500 End Shrink tunnel using Rockwell Integrated Motion and the Kinetix 5500 servo platform.

  • An Allen Bradley Compactlogix control system with optional Ignition or Panelview ME interface

  • Off the shelf electronics parts available through multiple suppliers

  • Predictive maintenance achieved through use of IFM Efector vibration monitors and historical data captured in Ignition or the plant SCADA system

  • Data extraction and remote service support through plant network..

  • Tray and film registration features provide higher quality packaging

  • Rebuild uses nearly all of the stock OSSID mechanical parts

  • More replacement parts are added monthly to the American Wrapper Series catalog as an alternate source to the OEM.

Thank you for considering Houston Industries. We look forward to hearing from you!
