Unwind system keeps stretch hood corners thick

June 5, 2014

Lachenmeier has introduced its patented Unwind System as standard on its stretch hood machine. The system gathers the film at the corners and unwinds it as the film is placed over the load. The process nearly eliminates thin and fragile film on load corners — a feature that is important for loads with sharp edges.

According to the company, the system keeps film corners about 30 percent thicker than other stretch hood systems. Users can incorporate lighter film gauges without compromising load integrity.

The system provides five-sided waterproof protection, making it suitable for outdoor storage and shipping on flatbed trucks.
