Stretch wrap film lines

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 cast film lines 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 stretch film winders, help our customers to successfully position themselves in the highly competitive packaging industry.

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 67. Our stretch film machines can always produce the ideal wrapping film for every type of application.

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