The TAB Wrapper Tornado orbital wrapping machine wraps plastic film 360 degrees around individual and oddly sized products to permit labeling, storage, and transport without needing crates or containers and often without needing pallets.

Ideal for tires, bagged powders, yard and garden products, and others, the packaging machine creates a smooth, clear surface for applying both shipping labels and/or consumer labels with brand imagery that allow the products to be quickly displayed for retail sale without unpacking, uncrating, or depalletizing, while also adding weather-resistant protection for transport and placement outdoors. Containers, pallets, banding, and packaging waste may be eliminated at the outset, along with several, labor-intensive steps in the packaging process.

The semi-automatic TAB Wrapper Tornado is operated by a single worker who sets the product on a platform within the wrapping ring and uses either the wireless, remote control, corded control, or foot pedal controller to start and stop the machine. The machine may be continuously fed by conveyor.

The orbital wrappers are available in a choice of three standard models with 100-, 80-, and 40-in. wrapping rings to accommodate products as large as 5 sq ft of infinite lengths and even larger in custom models.

The machine ships with a warranty fully assembled and ready to plug in and operate.
