Wrapping technologies that optimizes load stability while helping to reduce costs

Denmark (August 22, 2018) ― Lachenmeier ApS of Denmark, Oy M. Haloila Ab of Finland and H. Böhl of Germany, all part of the Signode Industrial Group, will join forces to demonstrate the synergistic benefits of their industry-leading stretch hood and stretch wrapping technologies on booth 4A-500 at FachPack, 25-27 September in Nuremberg, Germany.  Jointly, the companies will present a unique portfolio of stretch hood and vertical and horizontal stretch wrapping technologies that can optimize the stability of standardized and non-standardized loads while helping to reduce costs.

“This is the first time that the three companies will exhibit together in one booth at a leading trade exhibition and we’re excited about the opportunities this presents,” said Alice Holm Kristensen, marketing manager, Lachenmeier ApS. “Our combined services are literally stretching load protection both globally and dimensionally. Globally, in terms of our worldwide presence.  Dimensionally because we’re adding new dimensions to the traditional approach of stretch hood and horizontal and vertical stretch wrapping by offering differentiated technologies and creative solutions to meet load stability needs. Visitors can find all their load protection needs in the booth, from innovative semi-automatic to fully automatic equipment technologies to associated leading edge films. It really will be a ‘one-stop-shop’ for wrapping technology.”

Lachenmeier will run live demonstrations of its Multi FleX1 machine wrapping two different stretch hood pallet applications – buckets with paint and empty cans. The Multi FleX1 is capable of wrapping at very high speeds of up to 250+ loads per hour and offers the flexibility to run various load dimensions with only one film size.  Additionally, several film rolls can be installed that wrap multiple load sizes with greater variations in size on the fly.

Haloila will demonstrate its industry renowned Octopus stretch wrapping equipment machine which is designed for high-performance and optimized life cycles. Octopus is equipped with a new OctoFACE HMI solution and Easy Load Top Film dispenser. Safety and easy to use has been taken to a new level. During live demonstrations, the machine will wrap various boxed products.

H. Böhl will display two of its horizontal Orbital stretch wrapping machines which can package long shaped products.

“Visitors will have the opportunity to discuss their load stability and pallet safety needs with our experts to help them find the right solution,” said Kristensen. “Warehouse and logistics service providers will find automated load protection solutions that deliver lower material and packaging costs with associated sustainability benefits. And, plant and logistics managers will discover solutions that provide increased throughput and productivity, better load protection for less damage, lower costs through waste reduction, while requiring less labor.  There literally is something for everyone, whatever the application.”
