Here is why moving from manually applied hand films to machine applied films carry major benefits.

  2. Reduced Labor and Material Costs

  3. Improved Load Integrity

  4. Consistent Load Quality

  5. Reduced Operator Fatigue

Whether you are a small operation or a large consumer of stretch film with multiple machines regular audits and assessments of your stretch film packaging provides tremendous benefits and substantial cost savings.

Most of our clients are unaware that even machines as new as 2 years old can be running at a 50% reduction in performance compared to when they were installed.
