PTF Häusser GmbH was established in the year 2000 in Germany by three graduate engineers, Tobias Häusser, Peter Rasch and Reinhold Rau. Their goal was to improve the familiar disadvantages of waste wrapping systems which existed up to that time (e.g. slow wrapping, high film consumption, susceptibility to malfunction). Bales had previously been wrapped in a two-stage system which was obviously slower and more cumbersome than a single-stage system.
In addition, poor results in terms of sealing and uniform wrapping were achieved during two-stage wrapping, due to the absence of rotation. PTF Häusser GmbH launched the single-stage Rotowrap system on the market to address existing customer demands for a solution which could wrap a bale quickly and with minimum film consumption while achieving effective sealing. The system was developed to ensure that the machines could withstand the extreme conditions in the recycling industry and downtimes would be eliminated. PTF Häusser GmbH then unveiled the Rotowrap 30 and Rotowrap TT in the year 2000. The first system was installed the same year in Cologne, Germany, followed by shipping of a second system to Narvik in Norway. This plant is still producing reliably today, which demonstrates that concentrating exclusively on wrapping machines for the recycling industry and our aspiration to achieve the best solution to meet the special requirements of this sector was already proven back then. Building on the success of the Rotowrap 30 concept, work continued uninterrupted on the improvement of this solution and other Rotowrap machines. A need already arose in 2001 to move to a larger production location in Borgholzhausen, due to the increase in demand for improved waste bale wrapping solutions. The Rotowrap 40 was successfully launched in 2004. Since 2008, we have provided a two-stage system with the Rotowrap WR4+4. This is an improvement over the conventional two-stage system, as both stages wrap two bales simultaneously. Our latest innovation is the Rotowrap 50 which, with its 4 prestretchers, can wrap a bale 50 % quicker than the Rotowrap 40. Our different wrapping machine models and additional systems are individually created to customer specifications in our engineering design department. This enormous degree of flexibility is enabled through the internal production of the machines by our skilled personnel in a facility which now covers over 1600 m². With our different machine types and individual consulting, we are sure to find the right machine for your needs.
