Nearly all Eagle stretch wrappers are capable of having an optional integrated weight scale system installed. The stretch wrapper scale system makes it possible to obtain load weight at the same time that load wrapping takes places. Thereby reducing processing time and increasing productivity.
At the heart of the system are the load cells. Located at multiple locations under the turntable and mast base, the load cells continuously collect weight data samples. The weight data is then averaged out with help from the load cell junction panel. The weight data is then transmitted to the display panel where it can be easily read by the machine operator.
The panel can be connected to a variety of label printers via the RS232 serial connection. Any printer that supports ZPL script can be used to print the load label data generated by the panel.
By attaching a load label to your wrapped skid(s), carrier weight errors can be eliminated. Any additional costs or fees that may occur due to differences in estimated versus actual load weights can be reduced.
Stretch wrappers with integrated weight scale
While the weight scale system can be integrated into nearly any Eagle stretch wrapper, there are several stretch wrapper models that come with an integrated scale system built-in from the factory. For more information, take a look at the Eagle 2000BWS product link below
