Strapping System for Large-Volume Timber Products

The KOV-111-16, equipped with fully automated edge protection setter and balk feeder, secures timber, chipboard, and other building materials for transport.

The KOV-111-16 system secures large-volume timber products for transport without significant downtime. Three new features ensure even greater reliability and safety.

The high-performance sealing unit with a tensile force of up to 7,000 Newton enables heavy products to be strapped safely with a 19-mm plastic strap. The new balk feeder and the fully automatic edge protection setter optimize product protection.

If the production of timber, chipboard, or other building materials is to run smoothly, the process of securing goods for transport must keep pace with upstream production systems. The KOV-111-16 system straps goods with special product protection, resulting in almost no downtime. Integrated into conveying systems made by Mosca or other manufacturers, the fully automated machine feeds balks under the product to be strapped and protects the upper edges with solid cardboard. Any downtimes for refilling consumables such as strapping, balks, and edge protection have been reduced to a minimum thanks to large magazines for balks and edge protection setters.

The new high-performance sealing unit achieves strap tension of up to 7,000 newtons. This allows the use of 19-millimetre strapping material with a thickness up to 1.3 mm. These straps provide a tensile strength of up to 10,000 newtons – ideal for strapping heavy products. 

More Functionality
The KOV-111-16 magazine holds 75 balks of up to five different lengths. During operation, the magazine moves horizontally below the non-palletized product to feed balks of the right length. When the carriage is not moving, the magazine can be reloaded manually, avoiding costly downtimes.
