Mosca is exhibiting solutions for the graphics industry at Ipex, including its Sonixs ultrasonic technology and examples from its range of bundle strappers and pallet presses.

Sonixs is said to offer considerable speed and sealing advantages over conventional strapping methods.

Ultrasonic sealing is very efficient, with the tensile strength of the strap at 85 per cent.

As a result, the strap can withstand greater stresses during transportation and it is also often possible to use lower cost, narrower or thinner strap material.

Sonixs machines are also said to be more economical and produce lower emissions, with practically no fumes or smells produced.

Also, by avoiding heat sealing techniques, there is no residue buildup caused by melted strap to dispose of.

The Mosca stand will feature several working Sonixs machines designed with the needs of the graphics industry in mind.

Several bundle strappers will be on display, including the Sonixs TRP and the Sonixs TAI (comprising a Sonixs TRI in-strapper and a Sonixs-TR cross-strapper).

In addition, Mosca is showing the standalone Sonixs-MP semi-automatic strapping machine, which can strap at a rate of over 60 cycles per minute – as opposed to 40 cycles using a conventional heat-sealing machine.

For pallets, Mosca is running a KCK-131 press that incorporates an integrated lift turn cross to enable four-way strapping.

The machine is capable of speeds up to 120 pallets an hour for two parallel straps, or 60 pallets an hour for four-way cross-strapping.

The final machine on the stand is Mosca’s Romp-K high-speed standalone automatic strapping machine, designed for the wholesale distribution sector.

Using the same sealing head as Mosca’s Romp-4, the new model offers a simplified design with a more compact body – allowing it to be placed in busy wholesale and distribution environments.

Adding to the Romp-K’s flexibility and convenience, a foot pedal is located on either side of the machine.
