Foodmach has taken on the agency for Robopac pallet stretch wrappers as part of a new agreement with the Italy-based company.

The agreement includes sales, service, and support of all Robopac's fully automatic stretch wrappers in Australia.

This range of pallet wrapping solutions complements existing palletising solutions in the portfolio, and enables Foodmach to supply complete end-of-line packaging solutions to Australian manufacturers.

In addition to pallet wrappers, the agreement gives Foodmach access to the complete range of Robopac case packers, including Dimac and Prasmatic.

Robopac's fully automatic pallet wrappers come with cube technology which automates the pallet wrapping process and provides the right amount of film, at the right position on the load, with the right containment force to correctly wrap loads and ensure they reach customers in as-made condition, according to product manager Tim Baron. They also reduce film usage by up to 55 per cent.

"This announcement follows our distribution agreement with Markem Imaje in December last year and endorses Foodmach’s position as a highly respected partner for premium packaging automation suppliers from Europe,” chief customer officer Earle Roberts said.

“All new solutions complement our ability to design and deliver a complete packaging line solution, from end-to-end, with local automation, engineering and manufacturing expertise supplied from our Echuca factory."
