The 3300-A Conveyorized A-Arm Automatic Pallet Wrapper is designed to be installed with existing product flow and conveyor layout design. Whether In-line or off-line, the automation package is designed to be in-line with conveyors using interface relays/logic or as an off-line standalone system using a wireless cycle start remote.


Film Tail Treatment – Cousins Packaging's smart engineering has developed an advanced cut and hold device, the A-Arm. It provides significant productivity gains and safety benefits. No clamp on the turntable and no hot wire film cutter that requires continuous maintenance. This technology is only available on a Cousins machine.


Automation Features

“All Electric – No Pneumatics Required” [Patent Pending]. Cousins exclusive patent pending A-Arm film cut and hold device starts and ends the wrap process at the top of the load. This uniquely different approach to attaching and cutting the stretch film provides you with these benefits:

  • Selectable top banding capability

  • Stabilizes the load early in the wrap cycle

  • Places the ending film tail at the top of the load  instead of the bottom

  • There is no film clamp on the turntable that can be damaged by debris or operator error – eliminates the need for a film clamp power source on the turntable for easier maintenance

  • Load placement on the turntable is not critical

  • No air hook-ups or noisy compressors

  • Automatic First Revolution Load Scanning Safety Feature detects uneven or partial stacked top layers and automatically adjusts A-Arm height clear of obstructions

  • A-Arm Anti-Fall Safety Device
