Our Principle suppliers include Tosa spa Italy for pallet stretch wrapping machines, CMR Italy for strapping machines, Lorenz Pan Italy for palletisers, Trascar Italy for robotic palletisers and warehouse order picking and LGV solutions, Verbruggen Nederlands for bag palletisers, Movipack Italy for de palletisers, F for pallet stretch hood and pallet shrinking machines, Trascar for robotic palletisers and retort loaders/unloaders.
Having more than 50 years combined experience in material handling systems means that provide a wealth of knowledge to be gained by our customers.
One of Phoenix's key strengths is the supply of complete 'Turnkey' solutions, incorporating for example, auto case packing/shrink wrapping of products, auto palletising with robots or layer palletiser and including pallet wrapping/pallet labelling etc.
We have the expertise to pull together complete lines using our wealth of knowledge. The benefit to our customers is complete piece of mind that total responsibility for the project lies with PHS, in terms of specifying the correct machinery, project management, risk assessments, method statements and CDM if required.
If you require individual machines or complete packing lines, then we can supply exactly what is required. Should pack or pallet handling conveyor systems be required, we can supply these also, as we have UK relationships with conveyor manufacturers, working hand in hand with PHS. Design

Palletising systems include robotic palletising systems and are supplied by both Trascar Italy and Costi srl. The range includes Fanuc, ABB, Kuka or Euro type robots fully integrated into a complete line if required.
Also we have in the range 'Gantry Robots' with multi axis as required to handle many lines. Trascar specialise in a moving robot, which can have up to 8 inputs/building positions with bar code scanning and sortation systems. We have many references in Europe and UK with single robot cells or multiple robot cells, all of which can be viewed if required.
We are specialists in 'Stretch Wrapping Machinery' including for rotating turntable, rotating arm and high speed ring machines, with many variants. We can offer film roping, auto film changing, pallet lifters etc. The 'Principle Supplier' we work with, is The Tosa Group incorporating CMR a manufacturer of strapping machines, both of which are well established companies with many references worldwide. Our machinery is very reliable and robust and can be seen in many UK companies.

Pallet Shrink Wrapping Machines are supplied by F3 Design. They are the pioneers of pallet shrink wrapping systems supplying shrink ovens, shrink frames, Shrink hooding machines and integrated pallet handling systems. F3 Design is a world wide player in this industry supplying machines to many large 'Blue Chip' customers, in the glass industry, paper, building, chemical, food & beverage industries for example. There are many UK references for F3 Design that can be seen if required. F3 Design has a state of the art factory which is very impressive for potential customers to visit and make sample tests if required to determine the correct solution. We have a system to test the integrity of the finished load in our factory to give the reassurance to our customers that they have made the right selection..
Pallet Stretch Hooding Machines are manufactured by F3 Designs. . The beauty of the F3 Design machine is that we make a new hood whilst one is being applied to the previous load, this means the new hood seal is perfectly sealed and cooled before stretching it. Hoods are prepared at low level, we no longer have the 'Tower Machine' that you see with others on the market with the running gear at high level. Our machine is very easy to access and very safe as you do not have many vertical steps to climb from a H&S perspective. We can use a range of film gauges to suit the load to be wrapped and we work with reputable film suppliers in the UK and France to optimise the machine performance. Typically F3 Design sell machines in the following industries, food, beverage, building, chemical, paper for example. We can offer single reel machines or multi reel with up to 5 bobbins if required according to the customers pallet range. F3 Design have machines in their workshop for testing customer product if required. We have UK installations that can be viewed if required.
PHS has a number of UK partners who we work with to provide ‘Turnkey’ solutions if required. We are able to integrate other types of machinery such as labelling systems, check weighing systems and metal detectors for example.

We have both hot welding and friction welding systems to offer. For the paper & board industry we have a machine namely the CAM 45 T2 machine which compresses the loads prior to strapping to exhaust the air to ensure the result is a very stable/rigid pack. Top pressing force is adjusted via the HMI and there is a gauge to show the pressing force. Machines come complete with pop up turning cross conveyors, 2 bayonets and can provide single, double or 2 x 2 strapping as required. Again CMR have a large range of machines to offer, whether it be for packs or pallets. All machines and the heads are made by CMR and are extremely robust and reliable.
