Signode has been driven by the need of a company with a small production volume to achieve a good and economical bottom-of-product film packaging with the lowest possible investment in equipment. While the film thickness of a conventional pre-stretched machine film of up to 300% is 17-25 microns, and to achieve the full effect, a special pre-stretching head on the film coater is required to stretch 4 metres of each metre of film from the roll before it is laid on the product base. In the MimaLite concept, the film is stretched in the factory using special technology. As a result, the cost per metre of 7 to 9 micron thick packaging film has been significantly reduced for small businesses, and one roll of MimaLite film can be used to package around 80 EUR pallets. The labelling device is significantly simpler and more economical. The elasticity effect of the pre-stretched film is the same as before – the film tries to regain its original state and thus forms an even tighter package.
We offer a wide range of pre-stretched hand rolls in thicknesses ranging from 6,6 – 17my both with and without core. Signode film has 600 m of film per roll, and you can film 2-3 times more pallets with one roll than with a standard 15my film. The quality of the wrapping is improved as the exposed film pulls the load together after application.
