In the majority of industrial and consumer product applications, the stretch hood method offers the best possible protection for pallet loads. This includes water-tight pallet packaging on five sides by horizontal tension, providing good load stability and helping to protect the value of products throughout the supply chain. The film hood is pulled over the pallet stack so that both load carrier and bag stack form a stable unit. This way the palletized bricks are thus efficiently protected against weather, dust and moisture. Packaging palletized bricks with the Beumer stretch hood M is quick, safe and secure. In addition, this system accommodates a large variety of packaging film thicknesses. Compared to other systems the Beumer stretch hood M is also characterized by more flexible handling of different pallets and film formats, as well as by its high positioning accuracy.
Effectiveness of packaging systems, however, does not only imply high flexibility but also minimal change-over times, since changing from one type of film or pallet to another should not consume too much time. The intuitive human-machine interface of the Beumer stretch hood M simplifies operation and makes, for example, quick work of film roll changes. Operating parameters can be changed quickly as well.
The Beumer stretch hood M consists of a stable steel structure. And, with low specific energy and compressed air consumption as well as compatibility with recyclable packaging films, this system is a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable approach to pallet packaging. Furthermore this system does not require complex and expensive hydraulic systems, as is often the case with comparable packaging systems.
