Efficient pallet wrapper wins PIDA award
The winners of the 2017 Packaging & Processing Innovation and Design Awards (PIDA) were announced earlier this month, recognising innovative packaging developments with significant sustainability and environmental advantages among others.
The Machinery/Equipment Winner of the Sustainable Packaging & Processing Award was Omni for the Omni Pallet Wrapping Solution — a product range that has the ability to reduce the amount of film used to wrap a pallet by over 50%.
The Omni Pallet Wrappers and Omni Stretch have been engineered together to maximise film usage efficiently. Using nanotechnology, the multilayer Omni Stretch Films are thin, strong and long, allowing users to wrap more pallets with less film.
Through cutting-edge resin advancements, Omni has developed high-performance films that are less than half the micron of conventional films, with good puncture resistance and load containment. Used in conjunction with the Omni Wrappers Power-Pre-stretch technology, the Omni Films have a stretch yield over 400%.
“We are proud of what our developments have accomplished in the benefits to our clients and our planet,” said a spokesperson for AAA Packaging Supplies, a member of the Omni Group.
