Service Success Story- Stretch Wrapper Repair
We were called out to this customer after they began to have some issues with the turntable on their stretch wrapper. The only way to get the turntable to begin spinning was to have a couple guys push it by hand, in addition there was a metal-on-metal grinding sound coming from the turntable. The Best Packaging technicians found that the center shaft was badly damaged, the center bearing was locked up, and the shaft was seized onto the bearing. The only option was to replace the turntable. The challenge with this was that everything was seized up underneath the old turntable; the only way to remove the old turntable was to cut it out. In the photo above, you can see a Best Packaging technician cutting away the old shaft to free the turntable. A new turntable, shaft, and center bearing were installed. This machine now runs quietly, and the turntable spins properly as it should. Another satisfied customer. If you’re experiencing issues with your packaging equipment, give us a call at (888) 930 BEST.
