SIG's Lachenmeier to showcase stretch hood equipment and film solutions for corrugated industry at SuperCorrExpo 2016 in Orlando, FL from Oct 17-20

GLENVIEW, IL, Oct. 17, 2016 (Press Release) -Lachenmeier, part of SIG and a leading manufacturer of stretch hood equipment and film, showcases its innovative solutions for the corrugated industry at 2016 TAPPI AICC SuperCorrExpo, in Orlando Florida at booth #2241.  In addition to learning more about the revolutionary machine technology, attendees can see first-hand the benefits of the patented Lachenmeier Xeros™ condensation control film.

“We are thrilled to showcase our corrugated solutions at SuperCorrExpo,” says Neil Weisensel, Brand and Marketing Director, Muller. “The Multi FleXL machine and Xeros film were specifically designed with the industry in mind and both have become popular solutions world-wide for keeping loads secure and pristine.” 

Lachenmeier’s Multi FleXL stretch hood machine provides the necessary protection and force to stabilize even the most challenging loads. The machine wraps loads from 500 x 500 mm and up to 3200 length x 1700 width mm, with a maximum height of 3000 mm. It can be configured with up to four different film sizes and be set up to automatically switch between sizes to provide enhanced flexibility and a perfect fit for every load.  Wrapping up to 150 loads an hour, depending on the size and height of the product, Multi FleXL further provides fast and accurate results.

When coupled with Xeros™ stretch hood film, loads are not only quickly and effectively secured but also free of contaminates and moisture. Stretch hood film inherently offers waterproof protection- ensuring loads are kept dry from the elements. However, condensation can also build from the inside due to high humidity or drastic fluctuations in atmosphere temperature.  The patented multi-layer film technology used to manufacture Xeros™ prevents that. The combination of proprietary features effectively manages sunlight and creates an impermeable barrier to liquids.  Aside from eliminating condensation and unwanted elements from entering the bag, the technology also maintains barcode readability and prevents tears or punctures as bags are stretched over the load.

“The Lachenmeier systems are ideal for manufacturers looking to effectively secure pallet loads both during transport or when stored in the field,” Weisensel adds. “Coupled with the fact the system saves customers 10 percent in film consumption, is 100 percent waterproof, and eliminates the risk of contamination, addresses and solves many concerns in today’s supply chain.”
