Lachenmeier will be showcasing key advances in the development of stretch hood packaging systems and the new Multi FleX1 stretch hood machine. The company, one of the leading and most innovative manufacturers of packaging systems, will also demonstrate the financial benefits of stretch hood technology for industry. Stretch hooding means low-cost, flexible and reliable packaging of bricks, blocks, roofing tiles, tiles and clay pavers.
With the new Multi FleX1, extreme holding forces and load stability are achieved without increased film consumption. The load is sealed onto the pallet. The new machine boasts greater simplicity and user-friendliness than the previous model, along with enhanced savings in time, space and energy. The Multi FleX1 offers safe and easy access for servicing as the machine is equipped with a unique facility for lowering the top of the machine down to floor level.
Moreover, the machine features the patented top stretch film unwinding system that saves up to 10% film and eliminates thin and fragile film on the corners of the load. The Multi FleX1 meets the industry requirements for higher load stability, lower operating costs and higher level of sustainability, all in a compact design where no detail is too small.
Now more than ever, industries are crying out for savings, sustainability and innovation. Lachenmeier has accepted this challenge and developed the smartpack concept. With Lachenmeier smartpack, customers can get everything from one source, as Lachenmeier supplies not only pallet stretch hood and shrink wrapping machines, but also film and service.
In mid-2009 Lachenmeier entered the stretch hood film market, enabling the company to sell machines together with film in different packages. The company offers customers the following solutions:
› Machine followed at a later stage by film
› Machine, film and service combined
With this approach Lachenmeier offers customers guaranteed packaging costs, higher availability of their packaging line, less scrap, fewer maintenance staff and a single contact person to deal with their needs.
Lachenmeier takes a consultative approach to all aspects of the packaging process, from identifying customer problems and needs, testing customer products, crafting a potential solution, to establishing value and ROI. The consulting services vary, ranging from brief surveys, to long-range studies, tests at the Dekra Technology Centre in Neumuenster, and in-depth analysis of customer packaging processes.
