you throwing more than 50% of your stretch
film out the door without even knowing it?
More than 75%
of stretch wrap equipment we have tested is performing below acceptable
levels, resulting in tens of thousands of dollars in wasted
you know that proper prestretching of the film is required to change
the stretch film properties that create the Film
Force, Film Tension, and Film Strength required to hold your product
together during shipping?
the stretch film cannot perform the task required.
you had to increase the amount of stretch film you apply to the load
to hold it together better without knowing it is because your stretch
wrapper has stopped prestretching the film?
Just because a stretch
wrap machine is running does not mean it is working. Although it might
be applying stretch film to the load, that doesn't mean it is prestretching
the stretch film and creating all the properties in the stretch film
required to hold your pallet together during transport.
guide provides a quick test of your prestretch performance.
Although there are applications where low prestretch levels may have
some benefit (empty PET bottles), the vast majority of applications
should have a minimum of 170% Prestretch.
By simply weighing
the stretch film applied and counting the number of
revolutions we can determine the level of prestretch provided
by the stretch wrapper. Although an estimate, the result allows you
to quickly determine if a problem exists on your stretch wrapper.
