Lantech manufactures packaging and material handling equipment for warehouses and industrial companies. The company’s catalog features automatic and semi-automatic stretch wrappers, case erectors, and case sealers.
With the new HMI, equipment operators can control the wrapping process by setting the following parameters:
Load shape and size
Film width and thickness
Wrapping pattern parameters
Load parameters, which can be stored as custom profiles to facilitate repeat data entry
The embedded software interlinks the UI level with and equipment’s operations to allow the operator to:
Variate all the details of the wrapping process
Activate the stretch wrappers’ embedded controllers using load parameters, entered manually or collected from wrappers-integrated intelligent sensors
Perform equipment diagnostics
Enable manual jog mode
Create custom profiles, logs, and reports

Happy with the end result, the client went from the T&M to the Dedicated Team engagement model and hired our specialist full-time.
