Material handling firm Beumer has developed a film which can be easily opened without using any tools.
The Beumer stretch hood A stretch film packaging system can be used in several industries. It is now being offered with a newly developed easy opening hood, which will enable employees in retail stores and logistics centres to quickly remove the film while unpacking or repacking the goods,
It prevents the use of cutting tools. The easy opening hood makes it easier for employees in logistics centres, and saves a considerable amount of time.
Beumer worked with a film supplier to develop a technology that allows users to open the film along a precise tear line in the centre, without affecting the stretch hood’s safety function.
The idea for film preparation was generated by Beumer after partnering with its film supplier for decades.
The Beumer stretch hood A uses an enhanced mode of operation to package palletised load units quickly, safely and sustainably in water-proof film hoods.
It is claimed to offer reliable protection for the goods against all environmental stress. The palletised goods can be clearly visible because of the transparent film’s smooth surface.
The system uses biaxial stretching to unite horizontal and vertical film tensioning forces.
Earlier this month, Beumer said it will showcase its high level of expertise as a single-source provider for filling, palletising and packaging technologies at POWTECH 2017.
The event is due to take place from 26 to 28 September in Nuremberg, Germany.
