You want to know what's important when using stretch film for the packaging of your pallets and products?
Obviously, there's no generally applicable answer to this question. Your pallets and your products will have different requirements that will need to be taken into account when they're wrapped in stretch film. Your products could, for example, be sensitive to pressure and be very light. Other goods to be packaged may, on the other hand, be very heavy or may be irregular, i.e. stick out or not cover the entire surface of the pallet. There are many requirement profiles for pallets and each profile needs a specifically adapted stretch film.
Stretch films that specifically meet your needs will help you save time and energy and help you optimize your packaging processes. But a lot more has to be taken into account when your pallets need to be wrapped to make them safe and stable. It is also decisive, for instance, for the correct technical performance settings to have been made on your machines if safe shipping, optimum wrapping appearance and efficient packaging processes are to be achieved.
