Patented unwind system keeps stretch hood corners up to 30% thicker

Lachenmeier (lachenmeier.com), a leading manufacturer of stretch hood equipment, film and shrink wrapping machines, introduces its patented Unwind System. Unique to Lachenmeier stretch hood machines, the system gathers the film at the corners and unwinds it as the film placed over the load. This process virtually eliminates thin and fragile film on load corners- a feature that is especially important for loads with sharp edges. Compared to other stretch hood systems, Lachenmeier’s Unwind System further keeps film corners roughly 30% thicker. In addition, users can safely incorporate lighter film gauges without compromising load integrity.

“The Unwind System comes standard on all our stretch hood machines,” says Michael Hansen, business unit manager, Lachenmeier North America. “This is a small example of the detail and care we put into our machines to ensure customers achieve optimal load containment.”

Lachenmeier systems provide 5-sided waterproof protection- ensuring ideal protection for outdoor storage and eliminating the need for tarping when shipping on flatbed trucks. Coupled with the Unwind System, customers improve their overall load integrity while simultaneously reducing packaging costs.

“We are proud to offer products that help our customers work safer, leaner and smarter,” says Hansen.
