The use of stretch film roping in secondary packaging is a great way to ensure the safety and security of your products during shipping. This technique helps protect your goods from damage and ensures peace of mind when transporting products throughout your supply chain. With this proven method, you can be sure that your items will arrive at their destinations in perfect condition. Here, we’ll explore the many benefits of using stretch film roping and why it’s an ideal choice for businesses looking to increase efficiency and success in their supply chains.
Improved Product Stability
Stretch film roping is a great way of reinforcing product loads on pallets and ensuring that the load stays securely attached to the pallet during transit. This process is cost-effective, easy to use, and effective for multiple applications.
There are three techniques involved in roping with automatic stretch wrappers.
Roping from the Bottom on a Wooden Pallet
This cycle consists in narrowing the film from the bottom and applying the narrow part above the highest wood axis of the pallet. This function assures greater cohesiveness between the product and the wood pallet. This function can only be used if coupled to the lift in the center of the machine.
Roping from the Bottom
The cycle consists in wrapping the pallet from the bottom up to its top with open band film. The film band is then narrowed from the top along its entire length to create a “cord” any applying the cord in a spiral down to the bottom. The final part of the cycle is carried out with open film. This operation involves the “cord” being placed on the product. If the product or its packaging is delicate they could be damaged.
Roping with Double Movement
This cycle consist in wrapping the pallet from the bottom up to its top with film in open band to then narrow it from the top downwards forming a double “cord”. The final part of the cycle is carried out with open film. The narrowing movements of the film band can be independent or synchronized with each other. This operation involves the “cord” being placed on the product. If the product or its packaging is delicate they could be damaged.
Roping is effective, no matter how large or small the wrapped products are, and it ensures that all items stay securely attached, increasing safety and preventing loss or theft. Stretch film roping is a simple yet highly reliable way to improve product load stability on pallets, allowing companies to send their goods with confidence.
Breathability for Fresh Products
Stretch film roping is a great optionfor any business dealing with fresh products. Unlike other forms of stretch wrapping, roping doesn’t have to cover the entire pallet. This allows the product load to breathe more easily and increases ventilation. This is an invaluable benefit of stretch film roping, as increased breathability helps to keep produce and other goods fresher during long-distance travel or storage. By choosing stretch film roping, businesses can be sure that their pallets of goods stay in perfect condition until they reach their destination.
Deliver Quality Products to Customers
Stretch film roping gives businesses the confidence that their products are secure during transportation, as well as the assurance that they can provide quality goods to customers. This allows you to ship product loads with the knowledge that fresh or fragile items will reach their destinations intact and unharmed, avoiding costly mistakes or dissatisfied customers. Stretch film roping is an investment worth making as it gives your business the edge over competitors through its reliable packaging solutions.
