MACHINE FILM

Sudden stops, careless material handlers and rocky waves are only some of the dangers faced by your shipments. These hazards cause loads to shift and sway and can sometimes lead to toppling or collapse. Stretch film reduces the risk of damage by holding loads tightly together and locking them to the pallet. With upwards of 2% of all shipped goods becoming damaged during transport stretch wrap film has become one of the leading product protection methods.

Machine stretch films are a type of packaging material that is widely used in various industries for securing and protecting palletized loads during transportation and storage. These films are specifically designed to be used with automated stretch wrapping machines, providing an efficient and cost-effective solution for packaging large volumes of products. Machine stretch films offer numerous benefits, including increased load stability, reduced product damage, improved productivity, and enhanced supply chain efficiency.

Features of Machine Stretch Films:

Machine stretch films are typically made of polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP) materials and are manufactured using a process that involves stretching the film during production. This stretching process imparts specific properties to the film, such as high elongation, excellent puncture resistance, and good load retention, making it ideal for securing palletized loads. Machine stretch films are available in different gauges (thicknesses), widths, and lengths, allowing for customization based on specific packaging requirements. They may also come in various colors, including clear, black, or colored films, to meet different visual identification or branding needs.

Advantages of Machine Stretch Films:

Load Stability: Machine stretch films provide superior load stability by tightly wrapping around the palletized load, creating a secure and stable packaging that helps prevent shifting, tipping, or damage during transportation or storage. This minimizes the risk of product damage or loss and ensures that the products arrive at their destination in good condition.

Puncture Resistance: Machine stretch films are designed to resist punctures, tears, and abrasions, protecting the packaged products from sharp objects, rough handling, or environmental factors. This increases the durability of the packaging and helps maintain the integrity of the load.

Increased Productivity: Machine stretch films are compatible with automated stretch wrapping machines, which significantly speeds up the packaging process and improves productivity. These machines can wrap pallets quickly and consistently, reducing labor costs and minimizing the risk of human error.

Cost-effective: Machine stretch films are a cost-effective packaging solution as they require less material compared to other types of packaging, such as strapping or shrink wrapping. The high stretchability and elongation properties of these films allow for efficient usage, resulting in lower material costs and reduced waste.

Versatility: Machine stretch films can be used for a wide range of applications across various industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, electronics, logistics, retail, and more. They are compatible with different types of loads, such as irregularly shaped, heavy, or fragile items, making them a versatile packaging solution.

Applications of Machine Stretch Films:

Machine stretch films are used in a variety of industries and applications, including:

Transportation and Logistics: Machine stretch films are commonly used for securing palletized loads during transportation, ensuring that products are delivered safely and intact to their destination. They are also widely used in distribution centers, warehouses, and logistics operations for efficient storage and handling of palletized goods.

Food and Beverage: Machine stretch films are used in the food and beverage industry to protect perishable products from contamination, moisture, and other environmental factors. They are commonly used for packaging palletized loads of beverages, frozen foods, fresh produce, and other food items.

Pharmaceuticals: Machine stretch films are used in the pharmaceutical industry for packaging and protecting palletized loads of drugs, medical devices, and other healthcare products. They help maintain the integrity and stability of the products during transportation and storage, ensuring that they meet regulatory requirements.

Retail and E-commerce: Machine stretch films are used in retail and e-commerce operations for packaging palletized loads of goods.
