STRETCH FILM SLITTING APPLICATION
Packaging in the Food, Pharma, or Agricultural Industry is not always easy. Two main issues are: Wrapping product when it is still warm (ex: dog food, sauces, soups, yogurt). Products that need to breathe (ex: fruits, vegetables, eggs, plants). You can’t apply traditional wrapping to those specific applications without the risk of damaging the load during the transport due to moisture and condensation forming between the load and the wrap. Tin and caps arrive corroded, labels are discolored, card box boxes moldy and soggy which can result in poor presentation and in many cases unfit for consumption.
To solve this problem Phoenix engineered and developed the Breath Easy Stretch Film Slitter This feature provides a cost-effective solution where air flow is required to help prevent condensation from building up under the stretch film. The Breath Easy stretch film slitting system slices the film into 3 or more individual bands than can be adjusted in width. It provides the air gaps required to allow the product to breathe while still applying enough stretch film to produce the film force required to keep the pallet integrity. Ideal for products that require air flow, heat dissipation and condensation/moisture prevention (such as produce, flowers, dairy products etc..).
