bearing wrapping machine with rubber bar feeding

Bearing wrapping machines are well justified on a basis that will be returned on investment by estimated the savings on the material and labor work in short time.

Fhopepack bearing wrappers are one of the simplest parts of the machinery to cost, apply, and keep in a just way. Simple, that means if one could know the basis of specifying the right stretch-wrap machine for the application.

Precision Bearing Protection with Automated Wrapping Machines

Automated bearing wrapping lines help manufacturers efficiently package bearings for storage and distribution with consistent , high quality results.

Bearing wrapping machines apply protective paper, plastic film or foil around bearings to prevent damage and contamination during shipping and storage. Automating the wrapping process ensures a fast, accurate and repeatable solution for original equipment and aftermarket bearing producers.

How Bearing Wrapping Machines Work

The bearing wrapping process begins by feeding bearings into the machine. Rubber bars, vibratory feeders orBowie feed fingers orient the bearings for centering based on their geometry.

The centered bearing is placed onto the wrapping spindle precisely aligned below the wrapping head. The wrapping material is dispensed by the rotating head which incrementally wraps film or paper layers around the bearing.

Wrapping tension is maintained during the process to ensure a secure seal with no foil or film overlap. Once the programmed number of layers is applied, the wrapping material is cut and the finished bearing exits the machine.

  • Wrapping Materials – Common options include stretch film, polyolefin film, PVC film, laminated paper and aluminum foil. The material is selected based on the required level of protection, cost and bearing environment.
  • Programmable Functions- Many machines allow programming of parameters like wrapping tension, number of layers, sealing time/temperature and cutting position. This ensures consistency for different bearing types.
  • Speed – Basic models wrap up to 20 bearings per minute while high-speed machines reach over 80 bearings/minute, depending on bearing size.
  • Automation – More advanced machines feature full automationwith functions like auto film reload, auto defect detection and rejection, and IoT connectivity for real-time data collection.
  • Precision- Positioning accuracy of ±0.02mm and repeatability of ±0.01mm ensure bearings are wrapped evenly and securely. This minimizes the risk of damage.
  • Safety – Interlocking safety guards cover moving parts to protect operators. There are also emergency stop buttons.
