“Patent Pending” Cousins exclusive patent pending A-Arm film cut and hold device starts and ends the wrap process at the top of the load.This uniquely different approach to attaching and cutting the stretch film provides you with these benefits:

  • Selectable top banding capability
  • Stabilizes the load early in the wrap cycle
  • Places the ending film tail at the top of the load instead of the bottom
  • There is no film clamp on the turntable that can be damaged by debris or operator error – also eliminates the need for slip-rings to supply power onto the turntable for less maintenance
  • Load placement on the turntable is not critical
  • No air hook-ups or noisy compressors
  • Automatic First Revolution Load Scanning Safety Feature detects uneven or partial stacked top layers and automatically adjusts A-Arm height clear of obstructions
  • A-Arm Anti-Fall Safety Device
