In the past, these goods required much larger strapping machines. With a low strap tension of maximum 450 newtons, the Evolution SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV works perfectly in light operations. The cost-saving model is CE-compliant from the factory without a safety enclosure when used as a stand-alone machine or with non-driven conveyor systems. The machine's movable strap lance maneuvers between planks, feet or runners and, together with the side-mounted sealing unit, enables strapping close to the ground. The sealing unit uses Mosca's proven SoniXs ultrasonic technology to ensure machine availability even at maximum capacity.
A strapping machine that is too big for light products – users often face this situation when it comes to securing lightweight products on pallets, dollies or pallet cages. The compact and cost-efficient Evolution SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV now offers a perfect solution for these jobs. As the "little sister" of the successful KZV-111, it not only costs less than the larger model, it is also more efficient thanks to its adaptability to specific applications. Mosca GmbH CEO Timo Mosca explains: "The Evolution SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV shows how we are able to respond to customer needs by integrating their specific requirements into tailor-made solutions that meet Mosca quality standards."
A lean solution
One of the key advantages of the Evolution SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV compared to larger machines is its reduced strap tension of 450 newtons. By limiting the maximum strap tension, the new Mosca machine can be used for stand-alone applications or with non-driven conveyor systems without an additional safety enclosure. This not only makes the machine less expensive to buy. It also eliminates the need for operators to leave the safety zone during strapping and enables them to process packages much faster.
The movable sealing unit and strap lance on the Evolution SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV give users much more flexibility in everyday operations. Thanks to the horizontal sealing unit stroke of up to 340 millimeters, products do not have to be perfectly aligned with the reference edge to be securely strapped. This gives the operator more processing flexibility. The movable strap lance maneuvers between planks, feet or runners and allows products to be strapped to pallets and dollies directly on the ground. The strapping cycle is triggered either manually via the control panel or foot switch, or automatically by the machine. The Evolution SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV also ensures flexibility in terms of frame size. Customers can adapt the strap-guiding flap frame to the dimensions of their largest product at 200-millimeter increments.
Proven Mosca technology
The high availability of the Evolution SoniXs MS-6 KR-ZV is guaranteed by the patented SoniXs Standard 6 ultrasonic sealing unit with electronic self-calibration. It efficiently seals strap ends with minimum wear. The sealing unit on the compact machine is located at the side of the strapping frame to enable strapping at near-ground level. Users who want to reduce machine downtime can choose Mosca's optional double strap dispenser that automatically switches to the second strap coil as soon as the first one is empty. The empty coil can then be changed without interrupting operation. The compact machine can thus be equipped with components from higher class models.
