Higher containment force, lower film usage with cube technology

Cube technology is a primary discussion point at Aetna. The system allows palletizers to put the correct amount of film at the correct place on the load, with a precise amount of containment force. This translates to a better held-together laid, with 40% higher containment force, while reducing film costs by as much as 55%.
