The FROMM Group designs, develops and produces a wide variety of systems for unitising and palletising goods for transport: strapping machines and systems, pallet stretch wrapping machines, and the patented Airpad pillow system, together with all necessary consumables.

Semi-automatic and automatic stretch wrapping machines

The stretch-machines business unit is responsible for the marketing, production, sales and after-sales of the FROMM wrapping machines. A complete range of machines can be offered, from semi-automatic budget FS1 ‘CENTO’ with low pre-stretch, to the famous FS4xx with 400% two-motor pre-stretch unit. Self-propelling robots, orbital and fully automatic wrapping machines are also included in the complete package which FROMM can offer.

Plastic strapping tools

In addition to the conventional systems for steel strapping, FROMM has developed equipment for polyester strapping. This new type of strapping is flexible, absorbing shock impact during shipping, loading and unloading more effectively than steel strapping.

Protective packaging and void-filling material

Product protection and void-filling with air, the compact, portable and easy-to-use Airpad machine produces protective packaging and void-filling material at the touch of a button. No operator is required.

FS1 'CENTO' is a reliable entry-level stretch wrapper for the user who simply needs to wrap pallets quickly, consistently and all at an affordable price. This semi-automatic stretch wrapper is ideal for low volume wrapping which eliminates hand wrapping.
FROMM FS400 Series economic stretch wrapping machines are semi-automatic stretch wrapping machines with 30 wrapping programmes, equipped with a 2-Motor Power Pre-Stretch system.
FROMM FV ORBITAL stretch-wrappers - a complete range of semi-automatic and automatic wrapping machines, with diameter rings from 400mm up to 3,200mm.
Airpad is made from two rolls of flat film which are inflated with air, heat sealed and perforated. The formed pads are then coiled into a large light-weight roll. The Airpad system is covered by worldwide patents.
FROMM has a comprehensive range of fully automatic and semi-automatic strapping machines that cover a wide range of applications in the most diverse industries: steel (coils, sheets, pipes, bars), aluminium (profiles, ingots, coils, billets), wood (chipboard and MDF panels board, bunks) cans, brick, glass... They are built to customer specifications in order to satisfy the exact packaging requirements (using press, corners, bunks devices).
