Highlights

Scissor Type Film Cutter

  • The scissor type film cutter with sharp knives gives a clean cut over the full width  of the stretch film.
  • The secure hydraulic film cutter has a spring loaded clamp to hold the film firmly ready for the next bale.

The Pre-Stretcher

  • Vicon pre-stretchers provide even film stretch throughout the roll, are easy to operate and require low maintenance.
  • The unique pre-stretch roller profile keeps the stretched film at its optimum width and results in fewer problems with film tear.
  • The rollers are made of aluminium which avoids the build-up of tack from the film, which can result in overstretch of film and film tear.
  • Specially profiled rollers help to disperse air and water as the film is being stretched.
  • Change of film roll is quick and easy with Vicon pre-stretchers. The empty core is released by pushing down a single lever with one hand.
  • Low lifting height of the film rolls is achieved thanks to the low profile design of all Vicon bale wrappers.

Satellite Wrapper

  • Wrapping table with 4 endless belts and two driven rollers, carries and rotates the bale evenly during wrapping with no risk of film damage.
  • The twin pre-stretchers ensure high speed wrapping. They are positioned close to the bale, to limit the amount of air trapped under the film during wrapping.
  • The loading system doesn’t require the wrapper to lift the bale. Instead it gently rolls the bale onto the table, which then tilts to a level position to start wrapping.
  • The ‘Inline’ layout means that it loads and unloads bales in the same direction as the baler leaves them, so avoiding having to drive over un-baled swaths.

Control Options

Computer Control (C)

  • The computer controlled Model C turns the wrapper into a fully automatic machine offering either a fully automatic operation or a choice of manual override or function by function operation.
  • Choose for example that you want the bale to wrap automatically off. One operator does the entire process of loading, wrapping and stacking when loaded, but remain on the wrapping
  • table until you confirm that you want to offload.

Remote Control (R)

  • An advanced remote controlled version is available as an option (standard on BW2100 C). Place the bale on the wrapper, press one key on the remote control, and the wrapping process starts.
  • The previously wrapped bale is stacked and the next one picked up while the machine continues wrapping.
  • Press another key when wrapping is completed and the bale is tipped off. One operator does the entire process of loading, wrapping and stacking.

Joystick Control (J)

  • The semi-automatic Joystick model has a handy electric joystick combined with a control box which is showing you the operations running at any time.
  • Functions like bale and wrap counter and automatic table stop when reach ing pre-set number of table revolutions are included as standard.

Mechanical Cable Control (M)

  • The manual versions (M) are controlled with manual cable control with levers.
  • A wrap and bale counter is fitted for easier control of film layers, as well as number of bales wrapped.
  • An automatic table stop that is controlled by the wrap-and-bale counter is fitted as standard.
  • This converts the wrapper from manual to semi-automatic, as it allows the wrapping function to stop automatically at the set number of table revolutions.
