The Octopus 1717C is competitively priced to automatic rotary arm and turntable machines in the30-50 LPH range.  With its compact size, the new wrapper is versatile and efficient, making it the perfect load containment solution for the craft brew industry.

“We built the Octopus 1717C to give customers all the benefits they’ve come to expect from our Octopus rotary ring stretch wrap machines in a smaller footprint while providing optimal load containment and minimizing film usage” says Neil Weisensel, Product Manager, Muller LCS. “It’s also a highly intuitive machine to operate and install considering its capabilities.”

The Octopus“1717C” also comes equipped with Muller’s patented Easy S Film Carriage which enables simple film loading, maximizes pre-stretch performance and minimizes wear. Compared to traditional “W” wrap systems, the positive contact of the “S”wrap pattern improves pre-stretch levels, can better handle a variety of films, and significantly lowers the overall cost of ownership.

“We are always looking for ways to exceed customers’ expectations,” says Weisensel. “The Octopus 1717 is an ideal automatic machine for craft brewers looking to increase productivity without compromising space or budget.”
