Our resident Application Specialist Jed Goudie is back with more packaging insights. In the last article, Jed enlightened us on the best way to match wrapping with load profiles. Now he’s talking film tension.
It’s no secret that all of us here at Universal Packaging love a bit of tension. No, we’re not talking a nail-biting finish to the rugby (although that can be good too). Instead we mean the kind of tension that’ll ensure a load arrives in the same condition as it departs.
We can’t think of anything worse than damaged, spilt or shifted loads. It’s our idea of a horror movie, the kind of thing that wakes us up at night in a cold sweat. That’s because it doesn’t have to happen. There is no escaping the jolts, movements and vibrations that occur to a load during transit. The key to effectively combating these movements and avoiding damaged goods is containment force.
