The STEN Anti-Strapping-Engine removes plastic wrapping from around boxes. It can process both single wrapped boxes or multiple boxes wrapped together. It is capable of cutting through a single wrapped layer or multiple, though the wrapping must always be one-directional.

The plastic wrappings are identified by sensors, grasped, separated, and disposed of.

Implementation is most common in incoming goods lines, where singular wrapped, heavy boxes are processed or where boxes have been bundled and wrapped together (e.g. foodstuffs).

The STEN System is custom-built for each company’s individual needs.
