  1. Shrink Wrapping:

    Film gauges of 50 - 60µ operations proven with latest shrink shrinking technology (depending of nature of product to be wrapped).

    Variable costs have ben reduced significantly since the introduction of frame-type shrinking technology and more advanced burner systems.

    Shrink wrapping is tamper proof as opposed to spiral stretch wrapping.


    Hood Stretching:

    Film gauges of 50 - 60µ operations proven (depending of nature of product to be wrapped).

    Very high capacity. 100+ palletloads/h operations proven.

    Very little maintenance required.

    Lower film consumption than shrink wrapping.

    - lower energy consumption
