q400xtLantech’s new Q-400XT stretch wrapping system halves the cost and time for pallet wrapping with Simple Automation™, which eliminates the need for the fork-truck operator to touch the load or machine. Started with a remote lanyard, the Q-400XT automatically attaches the film to the load, wraps it, locks the load to the pallet with a Pallet-Grip® film cable, and cuts the film. The Q-400XT greatly improves efficiency and ergonomics for fork truck operators, allowing them to simply drive up, position the pallet on the turntable, start the machine with a lanyard switch, and drive away. Designed to wrap 35-45 pallet loads per hour up to 80 inches tall, the all-electric Q-400XT eliminates pneumatics and runs on 115V power, allowing convenient relocation to suit work flows. The Q-400XT includes a unique package of features. Lantech’s patented Pallet-Grip® load locking system is standard and attaches a load to the pallet with bottom wraps of film that have been twisted into a cable along the lower edge of the web. The film cable is wrapped with 50 per cent higher wrap force as it is secured below the deck of the pallet, while the remaining film web stays above the deck to secure the load. The Q-400XT’s electronically controlled Power Roller-Stretch® PLUS film delivery system, with 250 to 300 per cent pre-stretch and variable wrap force, ensures consistent, tight loads with economical use of film, reduced labour and improved ergonomics. The Q-400XT is easy to operate with a membrane touch panel, featuring colour-coded functions for quick, clear identification. Options include an electronic scale, loading ramp, extended wrap height to 110 inches, 30-inch film carriage, pit mounting configuration and dozens of others. The entire system is backed by a full three-year, unlimited-cycle, all-component warranty.
