Better Efficiency with High-Performance Stretch Film – Packaging Tips
October 19, 2020
As your business reevaluates the products you use and buy throughout the year, WCP Solutions is here to help you stay informed. In the category of packaging and film, we have seen unprecedented price increases in the stretch film industry recently. With four price increases in the last four months, you might be looking for something more efficient and cost-friendly. With that in mind, now is a perfect time to look at more efficient high-performance film options as well as automation and we’re here to help you find what works best for your business.
How Switching to High-Performance Film Can Help your Business
As a business, we know you are concerned with how much each pallet costs that leaves your door. We know that the amount of cost you have in stretch film per pallet is a factor in the overall cost of your business. By downgauging to a high-performance stretch film or switching to a machine film, it can amount to huge savings in cost.
These savings can be measured by a cut and weigh test by one of our expert WCP Account managers. To make sure you’re buying exactly what you need, we can make sure you are using the right strength of stretch film for your product while maximizing the efficiency of the film you’re using.
WCP also has a full-service equipment technician department and we can make sure you are getting the most out of your stretch film equipment to achieve the best yield. Our equipment experts can also fine-tune your existing equipment or get you matched up with the right piece of new equipment for your business. In some cases, just by changing the gears on your equipment to maximize the stretch of the film, it can reduce the amount of stretch film used by as much as 25% or more in some cases, so let us know how we can help you save money!
