With its market launch in 1989, the BEUMER stretch hood® system represents the state-of-the-art in transport packaging. Featuring class-leading control technology, modular design, and optimized packaging film handling, the BEUMER stretch hood® system offers an incomparable range of pallet packaging options across a broad range of pallet packaging challenges and requirements.

The stretch hood pallet packaging system from BEUMER Group offers the best possible protection for pallet loads, including water-tight pallet packaging without the need for additional film and/ or top sheets - together with both vertical and horizontal film tension for unmatched load stability. And the stretch hood from BEUMER Group provides ready evidence of attempted tampering, helping to protect the value of products throughout the distribution chain.

The stretch hood pallet packaging system from BEUMER Group is a benchmark in packaging machinery performance. Accommodating a variety of packaging film thicknesses (40µm to 200 µm), the stretch hood system is ideal for even pressure-sensitive products. And, with low specific energy consumption and compatibility with recyclable packaging films, the stretch hood system is a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable approach to transport packaging.

At a
glance:
