Stretch hood unitizer is fast and efficient

The stretch hood A machine from BEUMER optimizes the unitized bundling of pallet loads through a newly engineered design that maximizes the function, arrangements, safety and ergonomics.

System highlights include:

  • An intuitive, pictogram-driven menu system on a soft-touch HMI panel;
  • System is controlled by a Siemens SIMATIC S7-300;
  • Floor-level, maintenance-friendly access is made without a platform or steps;
  • Innovative, material-friendly film transport system feeds the previously created film hood into the system;
  • Design eliminates the need for time-consuming, energy-intensive cooling unit;
  • Shorter cycle time for hooding thus reduces idle times and energy consumption;
  • U-shaped frame design permits easy integration to existing conveyors;
  • eLearning program on a USB stick allows employees to train themselves.

Energy-saving motors and low compressed air requirements that have been dramatically reduced from the previous model ensure a favorable energy usage.

The system is intended for companies in the chemical, food and beverage or construction material industries.
