    DeWys Manufacturing Cuts Order Return Rate by 50%

    with New, Automated Orbital Wrapper

    TAB Wrapper Tornado Eliminates Product Damage from Load Shifting in Transit

    Reading, PA: Full-service metals manufacturer DeWys Manufacturing, Marne, Michigan, has cut its order return rate by upwards of 50 percent since replacing its horizontal turntable wrapping machine and manual hand-wrapping methods with the automated TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrapper from TAB Industries, Reading, Pa. With a single rejected order costing DeWys potentially thousands of dollars in product along with production time, labor and materials to replace the damaged goods, these returns due to defects from load shifting in transit were unacceptable, according to COO Mark Schoenborn, especially for a company committed to Lean Manufacturing, high quality and zero defects. “Our old system was coming up short but the TAB Wrapper has virtually eliminated customer complaints due to issues with pallet loads shifting and damaging the product,” says Schoenborn,

    The TAB Wrapper Tornado wraps plastic film 360 degrees around and under the pallet to join the products to the pallet and create a single, secure, unitized load that keeps the products in place during lift truck operations, storage, and delivery. Schoenborn purchased the fully automated model with wireless, remote operation and automated cut and wrap, enabling the lift truck driver to operate the TAB Wrapper by pushing a button without leaving his/her seat. Four lift truck drivers wrap nearly 150 pallet loads per day on the orbital wrapper, regardless of the products' size, length or shape. By cutting the return rate and speeding the packaging process, the TAB Wrapper has also allowed DeWys to handle more orders without hiring extra employees.

    Orbital Wrapper Manufacturer Introduces Fully Automated
    Wrapping System in Choice of Three Sizes Plus Custom Sizes

    TAB Wrapper Tornado “Perfect Storm” Secures Pallet Loads Fast

    Reading, PA: Orbital wrapper manufacturer TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, Pa. (www.tabwrapper.com), has introduced its fully automated Perfect Storm wrapping system in two, new models as standard. Previously offered with a 100-inch wrapping ring as standard to accommodate 60” x 60” pallets, the Perfect Storm is now offered with 40-inch and 80-inch wrapping rings to accommodate 24” x 24” and 48” x 48” pallets, respectively. Custom sizes for wrapping oversized products are also now available. The new models were developed to meet demand for the fully automated wrapping system in sizes that suit compact, low-profile products, and products of virtually infinite lengths, without over-specifying.

    Applying the company’s patent-pending technology from its TAB Wrapper TornadoR line of orbital wrappers, the automated Perfect Storm continuously conveys pallet loads into the wrapping ring and wraps them in plastic film 360 degrees around and under the pallet to create a secure, unitized load that stays intact during storage and transportation. Sensors monitor, stage and control pallet feeding, wrapping and discharge. With a PLC controller, the Perfect Storm enables a single operator to manage the operation, wrapping pallet loads in as little as 15 seconds per pallet. The Perfect Storm is manufactured in the company's Reading, Pennsylvania headquarters and ships with its conveyors, controls and standard accessories ready for installation.

    Metal Fabricating Shop Replaces Manual Pallet Wrapping with

    Automated Orbital Wrapper to Eliminate Damage in Transit

    Southern Metalcraft Turns Shipping Department Into One-Person Operation

    Reading, PA: Full-service metal fabrication shop Southern Metalcraft, Inc., Lithonia, Ga., has eliminated rework required due to product damaged in transit by replacing manual stretch-wrapping in its packaging and shipping process with a fully automated TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrapping machine. Developed and manufactured by TAB Industries, Reading, Pa., the TAB Wrapper Tornado secures the pallet load to its pallet by wrapping plastic film 360 degrees around and under the pallet to create a sturdy, unitized pallet load that keeps the product in place despite the rigors of transportation throughout the supply chain. The fab shop was shipping upwards of 25 pallets of large, complex parts per week and reworking an average of one pallet per month at a cost of thousands of dollars over the year, according to Greg Williams, president. “With the manual wrapping, we just couldn't get a secure wrap every time,” says Williams, noting steel banding and crates were often used for extra support. “As we grew, it became more important to address this and then I read about the TAB Wrapper.”

    The TAB Wrapper enables a single forklift driver to operate the machine at the press of a button without leaving the seat while the load stays raised on the forks, turning a cumbersome, two-person job into a fast, easy one-person job. “Our drivers are very happy with it – we should've bought this a long time ago,” says Williams, who purchased the 100-inch model TAB Wrapper, the largest of the standard models available. “We researched other wrappers but the TAB Wrapper was the best choice for us and the 100-inch offers the most bang for the buck,” says Williams. Enjoying a sharp increase in business, the company has been able to handle packing and shipping nearly twice as many pallets per week since installing the TAB Wrapper and has dramatically reduced the use of crating and banding.” Of the 40 pallets wrapped last week, all were wrapped on the TAB Wrapper.

    Patent-Pending Wrapping Machine Cocoons Palletized Loads

    in Plastic to Allow Long-Term, Outdoor Storage

    TAB Wrapper Tornado Protects Goods from Weather, Contact Damage

    Reading, PA: The patent-pending TAB Wrapper Tornado line of orbital wrapping machines from TAB Industries, LLC, Reading, Pa. (www.tabwrapper.com), cocoons palletized loads in multiple layers of plastic film to create a fully enclosed, weather-resistant barrier against the elements that allows valuable products to be stored on their pallets outdoors and in semi-enclosed  areas without fear of rust, contact damage or significant deterioration. An upgrade versus horizontal, turntable stretch-wrappers that leave palletized loads exposed from above and below, the TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrappers feature a proprietary design that wraps the film 360 degrees around, under and over the top of the load, securing the load to the pallet as a single, unitized load without need for banding or strapping.

    Ideal for safeguarding goods packaged in cartons, drums, bags or other containers, and for goods palletized without external packaging, the TAB Wrapper Tornado line enables warehouse and materials managers to move fabricated metal products, tubing and pipe, building products, valves and other products outdoors to free precious rack and shelf space indoors. Or, valuable floor space may be opened for additional production or for a safer work environment. The TAB Wrapper Tornado line comprises three, standard models with 100”, 80” and 40” wrapping rings to accommodate products as large as five feet x five feet of infinite lengths and even larger in custom models upon request. Manufactured in the company's Reading, PA. headquarters, the TAB Wrapper Tornado line ships fully assembled, ready to plug in and operate and comes with a full warranty.
