MSK stretch hood packaging for chemitry pallets

Stretch hooding for chemical products

MSK stretch hood packaging systems for the chemical industry

MSK stretch hood solutions for pallets loaded with chemicals

The chemical industry has special pallet packaging requirements: Products must be optimally protected by their packaging during transport. Flammable materials or production processes require machines and packaging processes which do not use either gas or heat. On the way to climate neutrality, solutions are needed without the use of fossil fuels and with sustainably low energy consumption. A stretch hood pallet packaging system is often the appropriate packaging solution in such cases.

Depending on the required load stability as well as their pressure sensitivity chemical products can be secured on pallet with a stretch hood packaging. MSK uses special techniques for the stretch hood solutions, which enable reliable film welds even when the film is highly pre-stretched. A film gathering and stretching technology with MSK vertical stretch and a reliable film application at the pallet foot ensure an optimum load stability. MSK stretch hood systems are characterized by very low energy consumption. They are also suitable for the use of films containing recycled materials.

The entire system is controlled simply and intuitively with the MSK EMSY software. The optional MSK EMSY smart app also offers mobile status monitoring of the system via smartphone or tablet. Connections to existing ERP/MES systems or bag filling lines are also possible thanks to the use of standard interfaces.

Special pallet packaging machines models for chemical production plants 

MSK offers pallet packaging machines designs specifically for the chemical industry. The utilization of stainless steel and plastic coatings for selected machine components plays an important role to enable the operation in the environment of a chemical production plant.

Flexible stretch hood packaging machine MSK Tensiontech for stable load units in the chemical industry

The fully automatic stretch hood system MSK Tensiontech enables the packaging of a wide variety of chemical products on pallets with a stretch hood due to its special film tensioning procedure. The MSK system stretches the film hood specifically to each palette format at any coordinate in longitudinal and transverse direction. The special MSK technique with patented device to gather the film (EP 1 353 847) and the MSK Vertical film stretching procedure (EP 1 717 148) allows the use of thin films.


  • No use of gas and heat
  • Cost savings through the use of thinner films
  • Suitable for film made with recycled material
  • Low energy consumption: less than 0.07 kW per pallet
  • Easy maintenance through lowerable machine head and maintenance-free time belt technology
  • Without the use of hydraulics to avoid lubricants
  • Intuitive operation with MSK EMSY as well as interfaces to ERP/MES systems and bag filling lines

NEW: Single-format stretch hood packaging machine MSK Wraptech – customized for standard applications

The fully automatic MSK Wraptech stretch hood system is specially customized for bags, octabins or big bags, as well as other pressure-insensitive products on standard pallets. The patented MSK stretching process for gathering the film hood (EP 1 353 847) as well as the vertical film stretching system (EP 1 717 148) not only lead to a high level of load security, but also to an optimal advertising effect of the brand logo. The system is easy to operate and offers efficient packaging.


  • Without the use of gas and heat
  • Lubricant-free time- belt technology instead of hydraulics
  • Film savings through proven MSK technology
  • Easy maintenance due to lowerable machine head
  • Simple and fast assembly
  • Low energy consumption: less than 0.07 kW per pallet
  • Simple operation with only a few parameters

Technical processes to stabilize critical load areas

MSK belt stretch / collar stretch / understretch procedure

Special film application processes strengthen the pallet load in particularly critical load areas by the placement of an additional film belt.

  • Belt stretch procedure:an additional film belt increases the load in the lower area.
  • Collar stretch procedure:The film is applied like a belt on the top panel of the pallet. The pallet foot remains film-free and enables problem-free handling in automatic warehouse systems or by AGVs.
  • Understretch procedure:The film is applied deep under the pallet.



MSK Hybrid Systems

Stretch hood and shrink hood combined

MSK offers so-called hybrid solutions, i.e.packaging systems, whereby the pallets can be packaged with both a stretch hood as well as with a shrink hood. Depending on customer requirements and production planning a wide variety of films can be processed in one and the same packaging machine.


  • Packaging solution for a wide range of chemical products
  • High flexibility, also for future products
  • Savings on energy and packaging material 
  • The machine head can be lowered to ground level, which notably simplifies maintenance
  • Maintenance-free time belt technology 
  • Fully automated processing of up to 4 different shrink or stretch film formats or film thicknesses
