Mosca‘s new semiautomatic strapping machine responds to the needs of customers who want a lower entry-level machine at an attractive price. Based on the RO-M Fusion, MO-M-8 offers reliable operation with high availability. Is especially designed for users who generally don’t need to strap items as often – but rely on high availability when they do. It dispenses with the strap guide frame. To strap a product, the operator places the package on the machine and lays the strap on manually. This is available with an optional table stop to facilitate optimum positioning of the individual packages. Strap return, tension adjustment and the welding of the strap ends are conducted automatically after the strap is placed in the sealing unit to initiate the strapping process. Temperature is regulated via controller on the heating blade, and multiple decentralized DC motors replace the central drive in the sealing unit. Direct drive for these functions completely eliminates the need for wearing parts, including toothed belts, clutches and chains. For the user, this means high availability and low maintenance.
