“The new demands of the carrier industry due to its increased automation mean more types of products have to be securely wrapped, in order to be accepted and travel through their handling systems. KernPack has an incredibly wide range of robust and reliable solutions that can wrap almost anything and help customers meet these emerging guidelines while at the same time increasing the efficiency of their logistics operations”.

LP SF-E 800 NF sized
One of the UK’s largest wholesale distributors of motorcycle tyres has selected one of KernPack’s sleeve wrapping machines to automatically wrap tyres ready for shipping to customers.

The company needed an automated solution as manually shrink-wrapping tyres was proving too time-consuming. The company’s delivery firm had requested that tyres were wrapped securely, instead of being tied with string, to ensure they travelled through their automated handling systems more safely.

The tyre distributor chose a KernPack SFE 1500 NF SUPER sleeve wrapper, which automatically wraps tyres securely with plastic film, ready to be collected by their chosen carrier firm. Tyres are deposited on a conveyor in front of the wrapper and emerge ready for address labelling.

The company only wanted to invest in one machine that could handle all the different sizes of tyre bundle. The flexibility of the new KernPack machine means it can accommodate small to large bundles of tyres .
