Lines for stretch wrap film

An intelligent modular system to boost your productivity.

Dynamic markets are most reliant on rapid-fire solutions. That is why we opt for pre-engineered machines in the stretch film segment, which we can optimise to fully suit your needs and your final product.
Our modular system allows for fast delivery and quick commissioning. Innovative engineering and the development of new core components, such as high-speed extruders and winders, help our customers to successfully position themselves in the highly competitive stretch film market.

Our technology.

It does not matter whether you need to work with small, compact lines or the largest of their kind in the world; whether you require final film widths from 1.5 to 6 metres or films whose layers number as few as 3 or as many as 55. Our machines can always produce the ideal stretch film for every type of application.

After all, our special winders are one of the key components in every one of our lines. There are three different winder models available depending on the requirements of the situation and the desired degree of automation.

Line Types

Small, compact, strong.

The SML MiniCast®

 

The SML MiniCast® stands out due to its compact design, taking up less than 100 m² in floor space. It is typically equipped with four extruders and 5 layers and creates an output of 1,050 kg/h. The MiniCast® lines are prefabricated in small lots, meaning these lines are available at short notice. The MiniCast® is popular among both new market entrants and established manufacturers of niche products, impressing users with its high flexibility and ease of use.
