Beumer Group aims to show off the capabilities of its stretch hooding machinery on stand H080 at AUSPACK 2019, with pallets on display to demonstrate how it’s done.

Beumer’s stretch hooding equipment covers palletised goods with a stretchable film. According to the company, during transshipment and outside storage, the merchandise is protected reliably against environmental influences such as sunlight, dirt and humidity.

The manufacturer will also focus on bag filling, palletising, and complete lines. According to Beumer, its Paletpac is suited best for bulk material, and is incorporated into high-performance packaging lines to process even sensitive and valuable products as well as products with special flow characteristics in a gentle and efficient manner.

In filling equipment, Beumer claims that its Fillpac R filling machine fills bulk material from the building materials industry and other industrial pulverised goods into different bag sizes and types, including valve bottom and flat valve bags, in an efficient and gentle way and with the required throughput.
