The ARPAC COVER-PAL 6000® Stretch Hood System, using Thimon® patented technology, is the new generation of automatic stretch hooding technology. This machine covers pallet-held products on the top and sides, allowing for pallet load storage with strong environmental protection against dust, water and shipping damage that can occur during storage or transportation. The COVER-PAL 6000® Stretch is ideal for products destined for warehouses, home centers, construction and freight yards.
The stretch hood system begins with a rugged welded frame, and supports a gusseted film unwind system, an advanced hood sizing module and a hood stretch and application system. Up to two film rolls can provide ability to hood multiple size pallet loads on the fly. Multiple infeed, wrap area and exit conveyors are available to meet the most challenging application.
This ergonomically designed machine is designed to support ease-of-use, fast changeover and plant safety objectives. Film changeover and threading is simple with negligible film loss. Parallel hood creation and hood wrapping processes improves cycle time while providing the newly heat-sealed plastic hood one full machine cycle to cool and cure before being stretched onto the pallet. This ensures a higher level of film stretch capability than is typically found in other stretch hood machines. The mechanical hood opening system, using mechanical grips rather than vacuum plates, provides a positive pull on the film gussets assuring the correct opening of all film hoods.
Unique to this new generation machine is a patented method of film stretching that provides improved hooding reliability while treating your loads in a gentle and less crushing manner.
An optional rotating film head uniquely provides capability for the machine to turn the film 90 degrees if the pallet is turned sideways. This provides additional production flexibility with respect to completing the stretch hood quickly and reliability.
