The Orion FA is unique in the marketplace as it offers Category 2 Safety Rating as standard equipment, not an option. As part of Category 2 Safety Rating you'll find full surround 8 foot high steel mesh fencing with interlocked access points as well as infeed and exit light curtains with electronic muting.
Allen Bradley Controller/VFD Drives
The Orion FA utilizes the powerful MicroLogix 1400 PLC from Allen Bradley with a 6" color HMI operator control panel. All AC motors with VFD drives insures high reliability and low maintenance. For convenience, there is an external PLC com port on the outside of the controller along with two 115VAC outlets.
Heavy Duty Frame & Conveyors
Unlike some machines in the marketplace, Orion builds it's machine frames from 100% structural and plate steel for maximum durability in tough industrial environments. Powder coat paint provides a tough and attractive finish sure to last for decades. The standard Orion Elite conveyors have a maximum weight capacity of 4,000 pounds and feature powered chain driven rollers propelling loads at 30 fpm . The soft start and soft stop function prevents load displacement by starting and stopping load movement gently.
Maximum Economy Film Carriage
Orion's proven Insta-Thread film delivery system reduces your film cost with every load you wrap by pre-stretching film up to 300% prior to wrapping. The carriage features an eletronic corner compensation system that speeds up film delivery when the corner of the load pulls against the film supply, thus assuring even tension on all parts of the load, better film economy, and elimination of spilled loads during wrapping. The ergonomically designed carriage faces the side for fast and easy film roll loading.
Heavy Duty Chain & Sprocket Turntable Drive
The FA turntable is driven by a highly reliable chain & sprocket system that provides precise movement of the turntable and making it extremely easy to maintain and service. The base FA system includes one infeed conveyor, conveyorized turntable and one exit conveyor.
