No film break (NFB) stretch wrapping machines use a film delivery system that seamlessly and consistently wraps loads without breakage. Offered on two models—the RS-6000 and NFB S-automatic—the technology secures loads with twice the containment force as conventional wrappers. The system lowers film costs by requiring fewer revolutions to stabilize loads, translating into a reduction of 30% less film used. By requiring fewer equipment adjustments, the unit also provides more uptime. Lantech, 800-866-0322, www.lantech.com.
