ITW Muller’s OctoMAX system uses proprietary hardware and software to monitor and measure stretch wrap equipment and film effectiveness. The system not only enables users to maximize the performance of their machine by making sure the optimal settings, pre-stretch gears, number of wraps and amount of film, are set at all times, but it can also maximize savings by monitoring the performance of their film. Users can meet both growing cost constraints and sustainability goals by reducing waste and downtime.
If something goes wrong with either the machine or film, the system is connected through the internet and will immediately notify the user via e-mail. The information is also available on the enhanced operator interface or HMI display. Users can visit their personal online portal to view historical data and download reports.
