Stretch hood packaging machine for Palletised Unit Loads and Large Containers
In close co-operation with leading enterprises in diverse Industries, pioneering solutions have been found in the field of stretch hood packaging. The MSK Engineering team evaluates all the possible solutions in the light of the customer's specific requirements. Your advantage: an individually optimised system and competitive advantage.
Stretch hood packaging for High Flexibility and Load Stability
The fully automatic MSK Tensiontech stretch hood machine - already the fourth generation ever since its introduction more than 20 years ago - packages all kinds of different pallet formats with a tight stretch hood. Thus, the products are protected against dirt and moisture from 5 sides and yet they are perfectly visible. For each format in mixed product operations, the film is stretched in horizontal and transverse direction according to any coordinates needed. This way, optimum load safety can be obtained. A special procedure developed by MSK offers extra stability in especially critical pallet zones. Optionally, the film can be stretched all the way beneath the pallet ("Understretch method"), or it can be used as a steady belt around the pallet board to enable reliably the storage in a high-bay warehouse.
An Economic Advantage
In contrast to conventional packaging solutions, the MSK Tensiontech stretch hood packaging machine is able to use cost-effective stretch films and minimise the amount of film used by its gentle film stretching process. The saves the storage of voluminous packaging materials.
Maintenance-friendly and clean solution
The machine head of the MSK Tensiontech stretch hood machine can be lowered to ground level, which makes maintenance quick and simple as no ladders or platforms are necessary. Similarly, film rolls and sealing bars can easily be exchanged thanks to convenient plugs and sockets and the user-friendly access at ground level. Film handling is done completely without hydraulics above the product: tooth belts instead of chains constantly ensure clean and material-conserving handling with minimal maintenance effort and very little wear.
Thanks to special MSK technology, the energy consumption of the MSK Tensiontech stretch hood machine is notably less than 0.1 kW per packaging unit, or about 30% less than for many similar systems, respectively.
Safe pallet transport
By using a specially developed conveyor system at the hooding place, MSK offers all-over safe and stable transport of your load units during the packaging process.
