Muller has introduced a patented method for providing improved load containment and breathability with its Flexi-Rope system. Designed for fresh produce, frozen foods and hot products, the new option allows users to automatically apply spaces between stretch film rotations, creating ventilation throughout the pallet. The system can be installed on new or existing Octopus ring wrapping equipment.
The system works by taking standard machine film rolls and roping the film from both sides to create a thinner yet strong band. As the Octopus machine automatically rotates film around the load, it leaves gaps between rotations to create air flow through the pallet and keep product fresh. Users can configure different roping combinations depending on their load.
