For a company in cattle ear tags Rutec Engineering is developing a fully automatic machine. The eartags shall be wrapped from an extrusion machine onto a strand. The machine wraps the strand on a reel. Once it is full the reel will tilt to the other side so that an empty one comes to the front. The strand is entered automatically and unrolled and to the next machine to prevent interruption of the injection molding process. The strand which wraps the ear tags on the reel is directed so it can accurately be shifted.
