Packaging of rigid foam

The RoRo StretchPack® machines are suitable for packaging of rigid foam insulation panels such as XPS, PIR, PU etc.

This will make it possible for you to optimize packaging quality, operating cost and packaging capacity of an already efficient production line.

The profitable alternative to heat shrink

Packaging of rigid foam insulation panels has for years been dominated by heat shrink packaging.

However, Horizontal stretch hood packaging eliminates your need for a heat shrink system.

This not only removes the pains you have with heat shrink (packaging quality, fire risk, cleaning, etc.), it also reduces your operating costs significantly::

  • No energy costs for heat shrink system
  • No costs for fire insurance of heat shrink system
  • No maintenance costs for heat shrink system
  • Reduction in film cost due to reduced film

A RoRo StretchPack machine (Large) will consume between 4,5 and 5 kW/h during operation, and there is no energy consumption during ramp-up and ramp-down. In comparison to heat shrink systems, this gives a significant energy saving. Energy consumption in heat shrink systems is typically 40 kW/h excluding ramp up and downtimes.

Six-sided sealed packaging

With RoRo StretchPack® you will gain an improvement in your packaging quality:

  • Six-sided packaging (or four- and five-sided)
  • Dust and waterproof
  • Smooth and uniform with high repeatability
  • Optimal for print and branding
  • Improved load stability

This will add value to your packed insulation panels. They will be fully protected from the ingress of dirt and moisture, and the appearance of your products will be improved and uniformed.

Cost saving on stretch hood packaging compared to heat shink. Savings in the figures are  based on a specific customer case.

Increase packaging speed and capacity 

Horizontal stretch packaging is dedicated to fit into an efficient production line. This is suitable for the production of insulation boards which can take advantage of:

  • Reduction of film roll changes - film capacity up to 12 km
  • Automatic shift between different product and film sizes
  • No stop when running out of film (redundant system)
  • Minimal cleaning and maintenance

A RoRo StretchPack® installation requires less space than a heat shrink system. This frees up space on the production site.

Reduce your film consumption by up to 60%

Horizontal stretch hood packaging is a film saving solution compared to other packaging solution such as both wrapping and heat shrink packaging. We have seen reductions in film consumption between 25-60%, which also leads to a significant reduction of the film cost.
