TAB Industries introduces portability retrofit kits
Orbital wrapper manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, Pa., has introduced portability retrofit kits. Developed to allow the company’s patented TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrapping machines to be moved safely without requiring a lift truck, the new kits feature four casters with companion mounting brackets and associated components, pre-assembled and ready for installation on units in the field. Once installed at each corner, operators simply turn a crank to raise the wrapping machine off the floor and engage the casters, roll the machine to the desired location, and then lower it back to floor level for return to service.
Ideal for automating the wrapping process at multiple locations, the new portability retrofit kits allow one worker to move the wrapping machine from one assembly line, metalworking station, loading dock, or other location to another without investing in multiple orbital stretch wrappers. The built-in fork tubes that allow movement by forklift remain accessible after the casters are installed.
The new retrofit kits are suitable for all TAB Wrapper Tornado models and are stocked in the company’s Reading, Pa. headquarters for quick delivery. The TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrappers apply stretch wrap 360 degrees around and under a pallet and its load to create a sturdy, unitized load without banding, boxing or strapping.
