BEUMER has developed a film that allows for quick and easy opening without the use of tools
Unpacking can be optimised too
Wednesday, August 02, 2017
BEUMER Group's efficient stretch film packaging system, BEUMER stretch hood A, can be used in various different industries. The systems supplier can now provide the system with a newly developed easy opening hood: this worldwide innovation allows employees in retail stores and logistics centres to quickly and easily remove the film when unpacking or repacking the goods, without the use of any cutting tools.
There had not been a packaging system for pallets on the market that did not require the operator to open the film with a cutting tool. This conventional opening method poses the risk of hurting yourself or your colleagues, or damaging the product. This can be expensive for companies and, of course, increases the risk of accidents. The Easy Opening hood makes it easier for employees in logistics centres, while saving a lot of time. To achieve this, BEUMER, together with a well-known film supplier, developed a technology that allows you to open the film along a precise tear line in the centre, without affecting the safety function of the stretch hood. The user can open the film quickly and easily, with no tools required. This considerably increases unpacking productivity. After collaborating closely with its film supplier for decades, BEUMER, the machine and systems supplier, had generated this idea for film preparation.
