The VARO unwrapping system can unwrap most types of products on pallets – even when stacked in unregularly shapes. It can handle all standard pallets: EUR EPAL 1-7 (up to 1200×1200 mm) and US pallets up to 48×40”. Contact us today to see whether your pallets fit!
Depending on the shape, height, and the foil type, the average process time for the VARO Unwrapping Solutions is 60 seconds per pallet. For a more precise process time, please contact us and book a test session in our test center to test your own pallets.
The VARO unwrapping solutions are highly flexible, as they both can stand alone or be smoothly integrated into existing warehouse systems or production lines. For exact dimensions of the VARO Unwrapper please download our brochure. VARO is also capable of supplying turnkey packaging solutions, as well as de-palletizing and palletizing solutions. Please contact us or visit the VARO Group website for more information.
The VARO Unwrapper needs electricity as well as compressed air.
Yes, of course you can. VARO has a testing facility in Denmark, where we are able to test the technology with our customers shipping pallets and goods. Please contact us for more information.
In the VARO Unwrapper, we have partnered with Siemens to develop a solution based on vision technology coupled with artificial intelligence, which detects whether all the plastic wrap is gone. With this solution, the process can take place entirely without an employee having to spend time monitoring or removing leftover plastic wrapping. When a pallet arrives at the factory or warehouse, the wrapping is automatically cut up and sucked into a waste container, and regardless of the lighting conditions, the size and shape of the product, and the thickness of the wrapping, the combination of the camera and the algorithm can determine on its own whether all the foil is gone.
