Stretch Film. General Information

Pack King supplies Stretch Film for both manual and machine applications.

HAND STRETCH FILM can be used straight from the roll, using plastic roll inserts in each end, to allow the roll to rotate easily without binding and creating frictional heat in the operator’s hands. When the end of the film is attached to the load, the operator moves backwards, whilst pulling the film to stretch it, in order to bind the load.

Hand Stretch Film

A Hand Film Dispenser allows the operator to feed the film onto the load whilst holding the dispenser handle. The other hand is tensioning the film using a brake lever or knob.

In each case the operator needs to walk backwards, whilst stretching the film. The operator is prone to strains in the back and arms due to pulling, bending and lifting outside the recommended comfort zone for human work effort.

Before moving on to an expensive semi or fully automated stretch wrap machine, you may wish to consider the Pack King Rapid Wrapper Powered Turntable Stretch Wrapper. It has no mast to limit the width of the load. The foot control rotates the turntable. You simply dispense stretch film on to the load and adjust the tension. The Rapid Wrapper does all the work.

Hand Stretched Film in Melbourne is available from Pack King in various gauges from 17um (universal microns), 20um, 23um and 25um. Width is 500 mm. Roll weight is between 2.5 – 3 Kg. 4 rolls per carton.

Film is also available in black for security purposes. It pays to pay more for high-quality black film, as the more carbon black there is in the film, the less opaque the film will become, the more it is stretched.

Machine Stretch Film. General Information

Pack King is one of the a few stretch film suppliers in Melbourne that offer a range of 7-layer cast stretch film that is capable of stretching up to 300%.

Film stretchability is dependent upon many factors; the stretch machine; the film carriage; the load composition; the ‘force to load’; the composition of the film; the manufacturing process; product handling, and much more.

You may be paying too much per load to be protected by stretch film. The best you can do is to confide in a specialist, who can determine from experience how to save you money. Pack King has specialist help on hand to help with all of your wrapping / strapping / protection problems.

Standard Machine Stretch Film
