Press Release: Weigh, Wrap and Label: METTLER TOLEDO Announces Launch of the 870 Auto Wrapper
METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to announce the launch of the 870 Auto Wrapper. This wrapper is the perfect choice for grocery retailers looking for the efficiency of automatic weighing, wrapping, and labeling processes for meat and seafood products in backroom environments. With the 870 Auto Wrapper, food retailers benefit from maximum operational uptime combined with a low total cost of ownership.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (June, 2020) – The 870 Auto Wrapper is METTLER TOLEDO’s newest machine for weighing, wrapping and labeling in backroom environments. With the 870 Auto Wrapper, METTLER TOLEDO is responding to the needs of grocery retailers who are looking for a robust and economical automated wrapping station – one that can cope with the highest demands. With an operational footprint of 19 ft2, its ergonomic design makes it a great choice for compact backroom spaces.
The 870 Auto Wrapper's fully automatic weighing, wrapping and labeling capabilities ensure optimal package presentation. By perfectly sealing the trays, both in terms of appearance and with high mechanical precision to prevent any product spillages or leaks at a later stage, retailers and their customers benefit from the packaging capabilities. The 870 integrates seamlessly with all METTLER TOLEDO networked equipment, offering total visibility throughout the enterprise.
Easy to Operate
The 870 Auto Wrapper is very easy to use and does not involve costly operator training, even for temporary or part-time employees who have no previous experience of working with automated wrapping machines. In the case of a changeover, whether of products or films, the step-by-step graphical guidance on the device’s large touchscreen display walks operators through the process to ensure the machine is being used safely and accurately. Moreover, the 870 Auto Wrapper has a tactile numeric keypad. Therefore, during product changeovers, advanced operators can enter the PLU directly, via the tactile keypad, without searching or even looking at the touchscreen, resulting in even faster and more efficient operations.
The film chamber is conveniently accessible from the front of the machine. Therefore, roll changes are complete in a matter of seconds. The same holds true for day-to-day cleaning. Any offal incurred during wrapping is collected in the base of the 870 Auto Wrapper and can be removed quickly and easily by opening the flap in the housing. The hard-wearing and durable infeed tray can easily be removed for quick and thorough cleaning.
In order to protect operators from an accident or injury, the mechanics and software of the 870 Auto Wrapper have been designed with optimal safety in mind. Any moving parts, which could cause injury, are guarded from being touched inadvertently with covers and safety stops. The ease of operation and the low level of daily maintenance required, help to minimize the total cost of ownership. The 870 Auto Wrapper’s energy saving mode automatically shuts down the heating element when the machine is not in use, reducing power consumption and saving energy especially during idle times.
Operational uptime is mission-critical. Technical problems in the backroom can interrupt the supply of saleable goods to the front of store, which in turn has a negative impact on turnover and profit. The robust design and construction of the 870 Auto Wrapper boosts the uptime of the automatic weighing, wrapping and labeling station to ensure that it will reliably withstand the harsh operating conditions of the backroom environment for many years.
