A machine used for the stretchwrapping process.


stretchwrapping: A process in which a package is wrapped in a thermoplastic film which is pulled tightly around the package. The film may be formulated to stick to itself on contact.


The above observation (OBS) has been extracted from the European Union Standard; Packaging Machines Safety - Terminology and classification of packaging machines and associated equipment.


  • Machines et équipement d'emballage
  • Emballages en matières plastiques
  • Techniques d'emballage

Machine d'emballage employée pour la mise sous film étirable de charges palettisées, de lots (exemple : les multipacks) ou de fardeaux.


En exploitant les propriétés d'élasticité à froid de certains plastiques (PEbd, PEbdl, PVC, EVA), on parvient à mettre sous film étirable des palettes, des fardeaux ou des lots unitaires.


Nous avons délibérément écarté les notions de «banderoleuse» ou «fardeleuse sous film étirable», car la première se rapporte surtout à la palettisation tandis que la seconde s'effectue sur bande transporteuse.
