Lachenmeier has developed a new generation of stretch-hood machines that offer significant cost reduction, improved optical properties, and good load stability for pallet wrapping applications.
Developed in close cooperation with ExxonMobil the new stretch-hood systems have been tested extensively with coextruded films from ExxonMobil’s new Nexxstar[tm] resin. The Lachenmeier stretch units are developed to handle the thinner film without overstretching it and without destroying the holding forces of the film. A main advantage of the new stretch hood machine is the heavy-duty stretch units which are based on hydraulic stretching. Each gripper has a stretch force exceeding more than 1 ton.
