PHS Secure Order For Stretch Hooding Machine












PHS are pleased to announce a new order for a fully automatic ‘ Dino’ stretch hooding machine. The machine is manufactured by F3 Design Netherlands and will be equipped with 2 film reels to enable the possibility of running 2 sizes of hood at the same time, or 1 printed and 1 clear or with UV inhibiters etc. The machine which is capable of more than 100 pallets per hour, will be hooding bales of wood shavings and saw dust products. The customer previously used a rotary arm wrapping machine, but has since been convinced that a complete hood provides for better weather protection and advertising if required with printed film.

The system will come complete with pallet handling conveying system and centralising conveyor etc. The benefits of the ‘Dino’ machine are the following:

  • No pneumatics
  • No hydraulics
  • Low level film cutting and sealing system, easily accessible from ground level, no steps required
  • No H & S issues as there is no need to climb steps to gain access to the top of the machine
  • Compact footprint
  • Low maintenance
  • Twin reel option
  • Off the shelf components
  • No need for a pallet lifter to place film under the pallet corners, as we have a steel slat conveyor which is narrower than the width of the pallet
  • Anti interference fingers to avoid machine damage if the load is too large
  • Quick and easy to install
  • Fully serviced by PHS UK
